In celebration of the 10th Stone Soup version, the dev-team would like to conduct another survey such as the one we did for the 0.5 release, and anyone who has ever played a few games of Crawl is welcome to take part.
This time, the survey has been planned beforehand and is much more extensive. It involves up to (what else?) 27 questions and may take 15-20 minutes to complete, though if you are interrupted you can save your replies and return later to continue.
All of the questions are optional, so if you feel uncomfortable answering any question, you can simply skip it. This includes the occasional text fields for additional information. If you don’t have to add anything, or don’t feel like it, you don’t have to.
The survey has been closed and is currently being evaluated.
The survey will be open for about 6 months until the end of the 0.11 tournament. Don’t worry if your answers are likely to change over this period: after all, the survey is supposed to reflect a slice in time.
Why are we doing this?
Our main reason to conduct a survey is because it’s fun. We’d love to get current statistical information about, for example, the overall win rate, what makes players give up on the game, or how many players would benefit from getting another WebTiles server closer to home. More than interesting numbers, this information could very well help shape the future development.
What we are not trying to do here, is earn money. Let’s face it: If that were our interest, we wouldn’t spend time developing a complex game for free. In other words: We will never sell your data or any findings that come up in the analysis. Once the analysis has been completed, the raw data will be deleted and the results will be made publicly available here on the website.
Thank you for participating!
