Only your own imagination sets the limit when starting a live-stream on Twitch these days. Successful streams such as the early-2014 phenomenon “Twitch Plays Pokemon”, and still-streaming “Fish Plays Pokemon” proves that Twitch streams can easily keep several thousand viewers glued to the screen at once. And in an age where Steam Early Access games fly off the shelves as consumers are eager to get in on the fun as early as possible, why not stream the entire development phase of your new game on Twitch?
That is exactly what TYPO Interactive, a Danish company consisting of 4 students from Grenaa currently enrolled in the game incubator “The Ranch“, has decided to do. From August 11th till September 5th, they will be streaming the entire development phase of their newest game from a point-of-view angle on Twitch.

The finished game will be a fast-paced memory puzzler for mobile, consisting of 3 different minigames, each of which the team has dedicated 1 week to develop. The last week will be spent finishing up the game, and the team invites everyone to come by and share a comment on their Twitch-stream:
The stream will be a place where you can interact directly with us and watch live development, we are not streaming for the sake of trying to be entertaining but simply to let you into our studio and be a part of the team!
The idea of giving potential future customers as well as everyone who’s curious about game development, a sneak-peak into what it takes to actually develop and finish up a game project, is great. And here at NordicGameBits we hope that the live-streaming of this game project will inspire people interested in game development, to pursue a career within the Nordic gaming industry.
