We are introducing our streaming integration for both Twitch and Mixer, thus answering the age-old question: what is best in life? Apparently to crush your streamers, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!
Or, optionally, helping them overcome hordes of monsters and those who would rather see them fail by spawning drops and picking better cards. After all, in this streaming mode, it’s you, the viewer, who decides what will happen next.
But how does all this magic work?
When streamer of your choice chooses to use our free Dungeons & Streamers DLC viewers will be able to take part in the game via chat commands on Twitch and handy buttons on Mixer.
What can be done? By timing your commands right you can
- Steal drops like gold, card charges or even cards!
- Spawn new cards and charges
- Spawn an extra monster or even mini-boss and the new monster will be named after you for everyone to see
- Attack monsters alongside the streamer
- Surround the streamer’s hero with ice, poison him or give his mouse cursor little nudge in a critical moment
- Trigger Death Rage, grant invincibility or heal the streamer
- Lure nearby monster to gang up on the unsuspecting hero
- When a legendary card is identified in this mode, two possible outcomes are presented and channel-wide voting takes place. The streamer will receive the top voted legendary card. Make sure it’s Town Portal if you want to make their day!
In general, all actions will be displayed in the game so both other viewers and the streamer will know who was that guy who just stole his gold.
We also had a few secret commands during testing, some of them crashing streamers PC but these got disabled in the final build. Or were they? No, they totally got disabled.
You can see the full list of commands and features on the DLC’s page:
Where can I participate in such streams?
Ideally on your favorite streamer’s channel – ask them to play the game which will help to spread the word of the game. Which is the point.
In other news
We are on the last stretch before the launch, which is why we are releasing the streaming integration now. Getting more people to know about the game and Early Access exit is more important now than ever.
Testing of new cards is progressing nicely, we already fixed a ton of bugs. Some bugs in the old cards also came to light thanks to dedicated testers (cheers!).
Stream safe in the paper dungeons
