Testimonials

Chris Gardiner, Narrative Director, Failbetter Games

‘I'd strongly encourage other studios to engage QRM for consultations. Our experience was professional, warm, intensely useful, and intellectually invigorating. QRM went to great lengths to understand the specific context of our game and audience, and tailor their advice accordingly.’

‘I was very nervous about presenting my work at the consultation. I was worried I might have written something offensive and ignorant, and would be judged for it. Especially since some of the outlines intentionally leaned into areas I suspected would be problematic, because I wanted to ensure we could benefit from QRM's expertise on those topics. I needn't have been concerned. The atmosphere was open, supportive, collaborative and friendly. The emphasis was never on saying 'you can't do this,' but always 'how can we make this work?' and 'how can we make this better?' The consultation was both enjoyable and rewarding.’

‘One of the consultants present had such impressive ideas on one character’s story that we’ve hired her to be co-writer on that content.’

Olivia Wood, Content Manager, Failbetter Games

‘It didn’t kill any ideas, but made us improve upon them … because we were safe to put them out there in the first place.’

James Chew, Writer, Failbetter Games

‘…insightful, practical feedback on pitches and examples of gender and queer representation in the game—before launch.’
