While Minecraft collaborative Let’s Play servers have been around since almost the conception of the game, few have so quickly risen to extreme popularity. Drenched in humorous but seriously devoted lore, Mianite is one of those servers (recently attracting 100k viewers to one stream alone, making it the most watched game on Twitch at the time!).
Comprised of three factions, the server has brought together YouTubers and Twitch broadcasters to collaborate and compete to make their faction the strongest. Mianite, the “good” team, is comprised of IIJerichoII and OMGitsfirefoxx, who are constantly wrapped up in battling the “bad” Dianites Nadeshot and Syndicate. Of course, there’s always Ianite and its sole supporter, CaptainSparklez, who attempts to keep the balance between the two, along with a number of guests and special appearances.
Following a brief open beta period, we’re pleased to report that Minecraft 1.7.4 is now available and features integrated Twitch broadcasting baked right into the game itself. As we’ve covered previously, Twitch for Minecraft features one-click streaming to your Twitch channel, with support for a microphone and integrated Twitch chat.
At MINECON 2013, we announced that integrated Twitch broadcasting was coming soon to one of the most popular games in the world, Minecraft. Today, we’re pleased to report that Mojang has released this feature into open beta as part of its experimental snapshots program. All Minecraft owners have access to this open beta, but you’ll need to setup a few things before you can try it out.
Update #2: Currently, Twitch for Minecraft only supports Windows (Vista and later) and Mac OS X (10.8, 10.9). Linux support is currently not planned due to licensing issues surrounding the encoding software. Apologies for not including this information in the original post.
Mojang’s annual fan appreciation event, MINECON, is going down this weekend in Florida and you can tune in to the festivities all weekend long by visiting http://twitch.tv/mojang. We can’t imagine a better place to announce our partnership with Mojang, as Twitch integration is coming soon to the PC and MAC versions of Minecraft.
