FishBowlVR + Furious Angels = Get Paid to VR!
« on: May 24, 2016, 07:16:46 pm »
So I've been a tester for FishBowlVR for a while now, and it's a lot of fun. I get free access to big-name VR apps in order to record a quick play test and fill out a quick survey. On top of that, I get PAID to do so!

The guy in charge, Geoff, is really cool, and he approached me about a partnership of sorts with FA. Essentially we could be used for multiplayer/social testing and all get paid for it.

Sign up at here and if there's an option, let them know you a part of the Furious Angels group. If there isn't a box for you to mention that, shoot him an email at geoff[at]fishbowlvr[dot]com

Let me know as well if you've signed up. I want to know how many testers we have available for him.

Sounds interesting. I signed up. It looks like the sample test is not available currently. I'll inquire about it tomorrow and hopefully can get that completed.

Don't believe everything you think.

They said there should be an installer link, but the screenshot they sent me had a link to the Steam store after you select the Vive. I'm guessing they have a different link for Oculus that is no longer working, but check again.

They also said you could choose any game/experience to use as a sample test.

There's a lot of tests for the GearVR as well, so if you have both the Rift and GearVR, you can end up with a lot test assignments!

So what do they do after you submit your sample test? There is very little info on the site. What kind of pay, and how do you get free apps?

I became a tester before they developed their new automated system, so I'm not sure what the process is now. Ideally you get set up with an account and then start getting emails for tests. You have to sign an NDA for most things. The pay is usually $10-$20 a test and I usually get paid same day into my Paypal. Right now there are a LOT of GearVR tests.

I'm still waiting for more FA members to sign up for them to start courting multiplayer experiences. Geoff would like to use us a resource so he can tell devs "I have 8-15 testers who I can get to test your game simultaneously and give feedback on the social elements".

Nice. I shot him an email earlier. Do I need to do the split screen where they can see me also, or is just the game capture with my voice enough?

You have my attention.  Registered.

Do we have an FA group check in thread for names on the popular social 3D VR chats?

I don't have the GearVR or a Samsung Galaxy phone. I may have to look into a used one just to add to my list.

This does sound interesting. QQ though Tbone, being I work for Facebook would there be any conflict with me being associated to one of the companies producing hardware and software?

I don't believe so, but you can always check. They are in talks to really ramp up their testing. I can't say much about it, but I think this could definitely become a thing worth spending some time and effort into.
