Being a beta tester

So guys. I follow alot of games here in the upcoming games threads of the TA forums and there are a lot of games every now and then that require beta testers. I myself am not a beta tester but am really interested in becoming one. I don't really know how I'll do but I think that it would be fun for me.

Can you guys please tell me about being a beta tester, and if any devs want to take me even though I'm not experienced I'd be happy to try and beta test.

There seems to be alot of beta testers here at TA, probably because alot of devs come here to find you guys

Well, first of all, its REALLY FUN!

steps:

Ok. So its simple. They send you the game via email in a zipped file. You download the file, unzip it, drag it into your app library, sync, play, give feedback.

You sometimes even get little gifts from the devs.

I think you'll really enjoy beta testing. I'll be happy to help if you need it. Just PM me.

Many devs here are willing to work with you even if you've not been a beta-tester before - after all, we all have to start somewhere. Just don't be shy, and you'll find something eventually. Good luck!

Sounds great. I can't wait to see what the controls are like.
