You are invited to participate in a user test of our product game application prototype. We hope to learn efficient ways of creating a game and accessing game features during play. You were selected as a possible participant in this study because you represent a person familiar with the game and have prior experience with the game without any sort of electronic assistance. If you decide to participate, we willobserve your interaction with our prototype as well as record your background information with the game. We will present you with a prototype and ask you to perform certain functions with it. We expect to take about 20 minutes, and you will be asked to attempt features and then analyse your thoughts on their ease of use. We hope you will not experience any discomfort, but potential risks include eye strain from reading text on a miniature screen and potential soreness from repeated motions. By improving the game in an interative cycle of revisions, we hope to optimize the experiene o f game users.
