Update: The Twitch archive for this is no longer available. A highlights reel is now available on YouTube.
Recently, Feral Interactive (my current employers, all thoughts my own etc. etc. etc. etc.) have taken to hosting #BeatFeral events, where we play our games online against our very keen and supportive Mac/Linux community. This is the first time we've dipped our toes into this kind of audience engagement, and the feedback we've had on so far has been fantastic. Prompted by this enthusiasm for multiplayer content, our Social Media Manager got thinking about how we could best utilise our single player games in this manner.
So here's the first result; last Friday I sat down in a darkened meeting room with Dom and Cass from QA, and we played the Crew Expendable DLC for Alien: Isolation, one of our recent releases. Until Friday I'd only clocked a couple of hours with this incredibly tense survival horror game, and it shows. If you're willing to keep count of the deaths, then please drop me a line so I can put a numerical value on how bad I was. I had an absolute blast though; streaming games is something I've wanted to try for a while, and having had a taste it's got me champing at the bit for more, so I'll definitely be doing some streaming from home in the near future.
The Twitch broadcast below will only be up for another fortnight. A highlights reel is being cut together as we speak, and that'll go on YouTube shortly; once that's up, I'll come back and amend this post accordingly. For now though, enjoy the stream, and be sure to follow @feralgames on Twitter (FeralInteractive on Twitch) to keep in the loop for future #BeatFeral events!
