Streamline released this Fall into #EarlyAccess on Windows; blending a colorful, full-tilt version of grounders together with heavy #Twitch #integration and community focus in this sporty action game.
Proletariat Inc. built Streamline from its inception to bring streaming communities together and promote extra revenue to broadcasters in a completely new way. Twitch Bounty lets viewers purchase directly from a stream (see below) with streamers getting a 30% revenue kickback from the purchase. Streamers can also create custom links for viewers to purchase the game post-stream. With this, viewers can support streamers AND Streamline by purchasing the game!
Streamline pits Runners (competing for the most points) against Hunters, whose sole goal is to eliminate every runner from the game. Streamote.tv adds desktop, mobile, and tablet Twitch integration as viewers can bet on the best Runner to win big, change the rules of the game in real-time, and play mini-games to become notorious on stream.
Give your Runner an edge by turning the floor into lava or by bringing them back from the dead. On the other side? Help the Hunter by restricting the Runners’ movements or making them explode if they touch each other!
This all sounds great, right? I know there are a few Linux streamers out there who would probably appreciate these features.
So we reached out to Proletariat over Twitter, having received some key information. Both the in-house engineer is has sights on Linux and of course Streamline is build using Unreal Engine 4, making the the potential for a native build very real indeed.
Do keep in mind, this does not set anything in stone, but it is very likely that Proletariat will bring Streamline to Linux. And as quite a few Early Access games, Windows get the initial followed by further platforms.
