Twitch Hackathon Kick-Off Saturday 21 april

THE CHALLENGE

Live video is increasingly popular, especially with gaming, as seen by the rise of live features on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch. Untill now interactions between the streamer and viewer have been limited to chat and comments. But recently there have been some new interactions possible, such as the Smart Click Map Twitch Extensions.

We want to challenge the teams to create a design for new type of interaction which will be used on top of a live game stream provided Bulbagarden. To achieve this, both creative and technical skills are needed. Keep in mind there is a limited number of people that can participate, sign up now!

 

THE TOOLBOX

During the hackathon the team from Bulbagarden will provide a you a list of games that they can play and stream on Twitch. After choosing a game, your team can focus on the main assignment, designing, developing and testing a new way to create interaction between the streamer and their audience.

Whatever the interaction becomes, it will need to be displayed in a design template. This can consist of the game interface, the video of the streamer, and other display elements that can facilitate interaction. Read more

Who we need

The hackathon focuses on creating and prototyping an interactive audiovisual concept. To achieve this, both creative and technical skills are needed. Keep in mind there is a limited number of people that can participate. Register now!
