Hey fellow devs,
I’m here to bring to the table a small discussion on analytics. What I want to ask is: what do you guys think about embedding analytics in Ludum Dare entries? Something like http://www.gameanalytics.com/, for example.
I’m currently working on a full version of my last LD entry and thinking back I believe I could’ve benefited from input obtained from analytics. On what terms would you guys be comfortable with recording data from your gaming session?
Personally I wouldn’t mind anything that is non-intrusive (in other words, as long as there’s no recording any personal data). For instance the link I provided above is a great tool for developers (I don’t really care about their module for purchase intention, the cool part is analyzing hot spots to help level design).
Looking forward to some opinions, thanks!
