“Really loved the unique selling point of the services Zigantic provides. The low cost, honest feedback and playtesting helped iron out the flaws of our games while improving engagement. I highly recommend it, especially to indie game developers. ”
“...It was a very low overhead way to get user feedback from a critical market quickly, and a solid overall value. I will definitely be using them [Zigantic] again...”
“Zigantic was a fun and easy way for me to get some pocket money. I just had to play a fun game, complete a 5 minute survey, and in 10 minutes, I earned $5. I will continue to use Zigantic in the future, and you all should use it too!”
Self-described gamers and geeks. In early 2017, Vignav and Rishab found themselves connecting two of their strongest passions (entrepreneurship and gaming) to help independent game developers to build the world's best games. To achieve this ambitious goal, they built a proprietary panel of play-testing experts across the globe, and Zigantic was born.
From then on out, we've understood how instrumental feedback is in augmenting a game for the better. It's what has led us to believe in the power of crowdsourcing and playtesting to drive impactful change. Today, we're a determined team on a mission to change the way games are developed throughout their lifecycle. We provide developers with the resources to break through barriers and clear hurdles to make their games revolutionary.
We see success in our customers' success, and thus we work hard to find solutions to the problems they face. Share your goals with us, and together, no matter what, we'll help you accomplish great feats with your games and then celebrate your success.

Our users/testers are game aficionados who like to play games (not develop games). We require every user to sign our EULA agreement and a Non-Disclosure Agreement which ensures game confidentiality and protection of proprietary information.
Most independent game developers work with Zigantic in beta, pre-release or early access stages, when user feedback is critical for engagement and adoption. During this phase user feedback can be incorporated to shape the final release of your game. However Zigantic can be leveraged for released applications as well when “play test” results are needed. It is important, though, for your game to be accessible and stable for our users to test and experience.
Yes, Zigantic’s pricing structure provides volume discounts. The more feedback you require the lower your price per user.
Zigantic charges on a per-user basis so that you're only paying for your actual user feedback for questions created by game developers. We built this pricing model based on customer feedback - our customers have told us it is valuable for them to obtain answers to specific questions.
