Announcing the “Twitch Plays” Game Category

Jan 13 2016

Calling all game devs! The Twitch Plays game category is officially open for business. Ever since the infamous TPP event shook the world back in February 2014, we’ve had tons of fascinating adaptations of the Twitch Plays concept, and we’re now excited to [finally] feature them all in one place.

What’s more, we have some incredible new projects launching today that we’re excited to share with you.

Other active releases featured in the directory include:

So head over to the Twitch Plays directory, and play nice!

What qualifies as a Twitch Plays game?

  1. Autonomously running games that utilize Twitch live streams as the primary mode of content delivery.

  2. Interactive experiences that gives the Twitch audience control over “player” actions in the game.

  3. Uncapped number of potential participants. No picking and choosing.

What is not allowed?

Of course, because we’re still learning what’s possible in this brave new world of interactive live video content, expect these rules to update over time.

If you have more questions about the Twitch Plays game category or whether your project would qualify, please email our team at twitchplays@twitch.tv.
