Set up a workspace conducive to creativity and productivity, a place where you can test your designs properly. Design and build at your desk, but test in an environment that closely simulates that of the player. Use the following equipment to test input and to identify potential issues with legibility, color, and contrast:

  • Desk
  • Ergonomic chair (recommended)
  • PC, keyboard, mouse, and controller
  • Headphones
  • Two monitors (recommended)
  • 42” (106 cm) television at a minimum, set at least 6 feet (1.83 m) from the seating area
  • Seating area: couch or chair
  • Devkit and controller
  • Variable lighting, with the ability to turn the lights on and off
