I’m Steve – a user researcher.
Most people talk to me about games user research. I have worked on both big and small games, and continue to work with publishers and developers to make games that players love.
🔧 I made The Playtest Kit – a toolkit for game teams to run better playtests. Learn more about Playtest Kit.
🎮 I wrote a bestselling book explaining how to start a user research career in games . Learn about the How To Be A Games User Researcher book. I also write monthly articles about games user research, run studies and offer training for people who want to join the industry, and for game developers who want to run better playtests.
I’m also good at taking new user research teams from zero to one. I built the first research teams for UK’s Parliament, and for the UK’s biggest news publisher.
