Twitch donating to help fund Twitch-powered Choice Chamber

New, 10 comments

Developer Studio Bean and Twitch are teaming up to fund the Kickstarter campaign for Choice Chamber, a "real-time, crowdsourced, procedurally generated game where your fate is in everyone else's hands."

According to a representative from Twitch, at 12 p.m. ET today, the organization will "donate half of the remaining amount needed to reach their goal." Studio Bean launched Choice Chamber's Kickstarter campaign last month. As of this writing, it's received $14,861 in pledges of its $30,000 goal from 475 backers with four days remaining.

Choice Chamber, a side-scrolling platformer for Mac and Windows PC that puts players in an endless enemy-filled dungeon, is designed to be played alongside a live Twitch video stream. Viewers can vote to change game elements like the shape of enemies (tiny, high or husky) a weapon's magic (fire, ice or none) and whether a warp zone will skip a player one, 10 or 20 levels ahead. An offline mode plays like the stream, except that the game makes the decisions for the player.

Earlier this year, Twitch Plays Pokémon, a stream of Pokémon Red/Blue controlled by viewers using Twitch chat, popularized using the service not only to stream games but to play them. For more on Twitch Plays Pokémon, be sure to read Polygon's interview with its mysterious Australian developer.
