I’m happy to be finally developing my first commercial game. I want to start with the right foot, so I decided to do a small survey to understand my players a little bit better. Here is what I came up with:
Since this is my first time doing this I wonder if there is anything you guys have to say about my survey. Also, if there is any tips on how to run a survey of this type, I would really love to hear them since I’m trying to figure this out as I go along.
(You don’t have to fill the survey if you don’t want to. I currently marked all the questions as non-required so you can just hit continue if you want to.)
My main objectives with my survey are
--Better identify my target player as well as his/her likes and dislikes
--Test the appeal of my setting and general artwork style.
--Gather some very raw ideas about how the combat system I’m thinking will be perceived by users.
Right now I’m thinking about asking people to fill the survey on facebook groups, reddit, and other random internet forums and communities. I might ask some pages to run the survey for me hoping I get some administrators to agree.
Any suggestions comments or ideas?
If any of you is interested in the results of my survey, I'm more than willing to write a few articles about it :)
