About Steve Bromley
I am Steve – a games user researcher.
I am a games user research consultant, helping teams use player insight to create successful games.
I work with studios of all sizes to transform their game development process, and build a product strategy to combine player data with creativity. I work from ideation to post-launch in order to de-risk game development, and make games players love.
