Survey from the Rust Game Development Working Group

Calling all game development enthusiasts! :mega:

This is a survey done by the recently formed Rust Game Development Working Group.


We are doing this short survey to better understand the ecosystem we've volunteered to champion. While we'd greatly appreciate a modicum of identifying information so we can easily connect with you for further discussions, sharing that information is optional. Only 3 questions in this survey are mandatory and we've saved the most important one for last.

If you prefer not to use Google Forms, you can answer the survey by making a reply here instead. Just quote the questions you'd like to answer.

(*) :point_left: these are required questions.

Thanks for the survey! It's really great to see that you guys gather feedback from the community, it gives us good hopes :slight_smile:

@erlend_sh I think you may also want to mark mandatory questions here in the post (there's already one answer with a skipped last question)
