Become a Game Tester by Matthew Johnson – Read This Before Buying

With all the new games being developed, have you ever wondered how people become a game tester? There is an down-loadable ebook called Become a Game Tester by Matthew Johnson that shows you exactly how you can get a job as a game tester. I used to think it would be a difficult field for an everyday gamer to get into until I read this ebook. In this short article we will be reviewing what this you will discover when you purchase the Become a Game Tester ebook.

Become a Game Tester, in a nutshell, is thorough guide that details the steps you need to take in order to turn your love for gaming into a good paying job. The author, Matthew, has been in the game testing field for 8 years and breaks the guide up into a few easy to follow sections.

In the beginning of the guide, the author breaks down what it takes to become a game tester. He gives you the basic requirements. I can tell you that the list is pretty long, but you don’t have to fit each and every one, but the more the better. One of the requirements that I’m sure you already posses is experience in playing real-time competitive games.

The next section in Become a Game Tester shows you how to get prepared and what you can do to stand out from the competition. Also, if you’re lacking experience, you’ll find out how to gain the missing experience in this part of the book.

Finally, Matthew talks about the hustle of the gaming industry. Where to find the jobs, whom to get in touch with, specific instruction on how to set up your resume and more.

Now, let’s look at some of the things I didn’t like about this guide.

First of all, the author seems to be a little shy as there are no photos of him and only a brief bit of information. Personally, I would like to feel somewhat of a connection with the author, maybe a picture or a brief biography.

Also, although the author provided a long list of companies and websites that you can apply to, he could have done a better job of organizing it. Possibly by category or size of company etc.

What are some of the things that I liked about the ebook

The guide is very thorough. It is designed to take a person who knows nothing about how to get into the game testing industry to being ready to walk into an interview

The guide gives it to you real. The author let’s you know up front that this is no get rich quick scheme that will allow you to make $1,000s sitting in your PJs on the couch. If you’re looking for that, this is not the guide for you, but if you’re ready to put forth the effort this guide will give direction.

One thing that really stands out versus other guides I’ve read is that the author tells you exactly who to contact and how to work your way around the receptionists. Other guides just give you a long list of companies and let you fend for yourself. Become a Game Tester show you how to build your experience, hone your skills, format your resume, and create your cover letter.

So, what do I think overall?

“Become a Game Tester” by Matthew Johnson will give you a big leg up in finding your place in the game testing field. The authors 8 years of experience are presented in a simple and easy to follow formula.
