Lynnea's Twitch streaming (Live reviews)

This year, I’ll be Twitch streaming the IFComp games! And I’ll be actually archiving them, so they’ll stick around for posterity.

I promise for authors, it can be stressful, but fun. I always* love the games, flaws and all. I’ll be tweeting @ people who gave their handles to the IFComp site (like, only 1/5 of you) so pay attention here too to catch when your game is up. Because of the gag rule, feel free to PM me if you have thoughts, hints, notes, w/e.

Next week, I’ll go Monday - Friday from 2 - 4(5?)pm CST. The weeks after, I’ll just be playing on Fridays at the same time (my regular schedule). Anticipate 2-5 games per session.

Here’s my randomized list:

Thanks, Lynnea, for the live playthrough of my game. I’ve never learned more in two hours.

And, of course, thanks for all the live playthroughs! You’re doing an impressive job.

Just wanted to check - but are these enjoyable / useful? Is the time good, or would another time be better?

I feel like these sorts of live-action, hour-long-plus reviews may be coolest for the authors themselves, but that’s tricky to gauge just how cool, because of that gag order.

Thanks!

I usually catch them after the fact, but I personally do find them helpful as feedback for my writing! We usually only get reviews, which reviewers (we hope) have pondered over and thought about, so it’s quite useful to see players’ immediate reactions as well.

Lynnea, your streams are awesome - I don’t get to watch them live because of ‘timezones’, but I always watch them after the fact.
