|Session Name:||A Practical Guide for Doing Ethical Player Testing|
|Company Name(s):||Concordia University|
|Track / Format:||Advocacy|
|Overview:||What does ethical player testing entail? Are there things that game developers should never do to or with game testers? How can they be sure that they are being fair to players by informing them of things that might happen to them during testing, particularly if developers don't want to reveal everything about their game in advance? This presentation makes the case for ethical play testing and offers developers a practical guide for implementing ethical player testing. It starts with an overview of the history of human subjects research, provides resources for more information, and then dives into what ethical player testing can look like, and how to implement your own best practices for player testing.|
