IndieObscura is returning to Twitch
The end of the year is fast approaching and everyone’s busy prepping for the holidays, myself included. I’ll admit I’ve been swamped at work (and at home), unable to complete a written feature for IndieObscura this week.
Agonizing over the lack of content, I found myself sitting on the couch thinking about what else I could do for IO when all of a sudden it clicked… stream on Twitch!
Specifically, stream several of my favorite “indie games of the decade” like Journey and Chivalry Medieval Warfare. It’s been several years since I’ve streamed anything on Twitch, and the thought of reviving IO’s channel genuinely excites me. After all, it’s a great way to connect with an audience outside of written features.
Getting cozy under a warm blanket with a long, written feature can certainly be relaxing, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little more interactive, and that’s where streaming comes in. It’s been wild to watch streaming grow in popularity over the last decade, and I’m eager to see it evolve in 2020.
I also think streaming can be a great opportunity to help grow the indie game community and interest in indie titles.
Outside of streaming my favorite indies of the decade, I want to take this opportunity to confirm that IO will stream new indies on a regular basis in 2020. On the fence about purchasing a game like Maneater? IO will be streaming it! Want to hang out and talk indies? Drop by the IndieObscura Twitch channel and let’s hang!
To make the whole process easier, I’m embedding the latest stream down below. Through this embed, you can navigate directly to the IO page on Twitch and subscribe to stay up-to-date on all the latest streams. With all that said, thank you for being a part of the IndieObscura family in 2019. I look forward to getting to know all of you even better in 2020.
