Selecting your game's audience

To get your audience insights with Solsten, indicate which audience best represents who will play your game. If you’re using the free version, this means selecting a genre for your game. You can change this later, but any questionnaires taken by the playtesters must be re-taken. Here’s how to select your audience:

  1. Go to ADT Web and log in to your namespace.
  2. Select your game from the Select the Game page.
  3. Click on the Game Settings menu on the sidebar to be directed to the Game Integration page.
  4. Make sure you have integrated your namespace with Solsten.
  5. Choose your game's genre from the dropdown list and click Save. Select Genre

For those with an active Solsten subscription, you can select from the audience dashboards already owned on the Solsten platform.
