The Challenge: Can we build a turn-based strategy game for Twitch, where both broad­cast­ers and viewers play in a live stream? Can this proof-of-concept give broad­cast­ers a new way to interact with their followers?

The Solution: Schell Games created Waste­landers, where broad­cast­ers take on the role of a Warlord in a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic wasteland, and lead their viewers in battle against another broad­caster-led team. By watching the stream and chatting, viewers can control warriors on the bat­tle­field, set bounties on oppo­si­tion warriors, place land mines, and alter the battle in other fun and sur­pris­ing ways. Broad­cast­ers can then reward their most loyal followers and sub­scribers with more chances to play and gain game experience.

The Results: Schell Games was able to prove that this type of inter­ac­tive game format on Twitch was indeed possible, and broad­cast­ers and their followers could have more engaging inter­ac­tions with this format.
