Audience Level: All

Whether it's classical Greek plays with food thrown at actors, or the modern-day esports tournament, getting the audience involved is critical to the experience of entertainment. More people watch esports championship on Twitch than the Super Bowl. Imagine giving millions of Twitch viewers agency over any type of game they are watching, transforming their role from passive observers to active participants. This transformation will revolutionize the way people experience games, and bring us back to the early days of the Greek theatre. Join veteran game designer Denis Dyack in an exploration of this new type of experience through Deadhaus Sonata and the Genvid SDK.

Takeaway

Integrating agency for millions of viewers on social media will change the way people will experience games. Social media platforms like twitch should be utilized for more than marketing and can add the meta-universe of your game and is an avenue all developers should explore.

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in growing their gaming audience, emergent gameplay, marketing, and creating the best experience possible for gamers.
