For the Global Game Jam 2015 my team made a 4-player game using xbox 360 controllers. Since this setup it not ideal for people to actually play the game I decided to set up some Twitch chat controls for it instead. I found and made use of OpenTwitchPlays and HexChat to accomplish this. Even though Twitch has approximately an 18 second delay (or longer) it still was good to get something working through the IRC chat. I'm interested in this kind of game that makes use of crowds of people for input (like Choice Chamber), so I might be researching this in the future.

I'll include a screenshot of some friends who logged on to try it out.

I scripted some minor input commands to hook up to OpenTwitchPlays and also made the UI scalable, which I hadn't had time for during the actual weekend jam period.

Here's the game on the Global Game Jam site if you wanted to take a look at it:

We're still finding areas to polish up, so hopefully I'll have more on this project to add to the streak!
