- Who feel unproductive or guilty when playing video games
- Who are or could be suffering from gaming addiction.
3. How do I sign up for Lootfeed?
You can sign up at our website, Lootfeed.com. Once there, please indicate what gaming platforms you own. Our current beta is currently open for Steam, with more platforms to come shortly. If you indicate you have an Steam we will send you an invitation.
4. How does this work? I have to sign into my gaming account and my bank account? Am I paying myself to game?
Lootfeed requires both a bank account and a Steam account. Yes, you are paying yourself. One way to think of this is you are in an arcade instead of giving your money away for each game you play, you are instead reinvesting in yourself.
