  1. oof.. just realized i have an uncomfortable silence followed some audio overlap on the part where I'm painting my robo bat… sorry!!! this video was a toughie to make.

  2. This so inspiring!!! I'm building a game with a team of folks and your tutorials have helped a lot. I am starting our twitch channel today and you pushed me. I'm shedding a fucking tear right now. Thank you

  3. If I'm developing a turn-based 2D "intellectual" game (like chess – but not chess, if you see what I mean), would Twitchbe of any use? It can be played at an advanced level (like chess) and it challenges the grey-matter of players and kibitzers alike. But would the kind of audience that Twitch has be interested in that sort of game?

  4. Great video and I can recommend it as well. Started streaming on Twitch for the Brackeys 2020.2 GameJam (about a month ago) and been continuing to do so for my game "Who Dunnit?". It's a lot of fun to have friend (and newcomers) join in chat and give feedback. Managed to unlock affiliate 2 weeks ago, so maybe it might yield some revenue as well in the future πŸ™‚ I have not been able to stream long sessions (usually 1,5-3 hours for me), I wonder if streaming longer would help, especially with getting discovered. I have a steady group of people from Discord and Twitter that keep my company, but it's slow to expand to new people; I think streaming for longer sessions might help with that as it exposes you to more people that might browse the 'Science and Technology' section.

  5. Thanks for the tips and perspective! It's definitely something I've been considering alot nowadays as a fun way to start building a community and joining the hustle economy.

    Best of luck with your development and streaming!

  6. Oh God, I really really REALLY loved your videos and the way how do you create game!! It's just fantastic! You're a very good painter and game creator, congrats!

  7. Awesome video! I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately if people like your game too much then you start getting more distracted than productive. Lol. But that's a good problem to have. When do you stream? I'd love to catch you live sometime. Your artstyle blows me away.

  8. You may have missed a chance here to plug the stream πŸ™‚ Went to your channel and couldn't find a link to it. Had to google your name + "twitch".

  9. Tip ….move to Twitch when you know what the hell you're doing like she does….nobody wants to see you fumbling around trying to find the right tool or technique or googling for answers or copy pasting or…you get what im saying…right?

  10. Great video. Funny you mention the β€œRubber duck” thing. Because I literally yesterday had that experience.
    I recently started streaming more and yesterday I realized that I solved a lot more things and the solution were better code wise end I guess it would have if I just did it with out streaming.
    I even streamed for 0 viewers, but I spoke out my thoughts and kind of discussed with myself why I did like I did and how to do it better.

    So really funny see you mentioning it here because for me that’s the biggest advantage right now.

    Keep the videos coming I just subbed πŸ™‚

  11. Thank you for the inspiration, I've been always trying to stream on twitch but I always been so scared. But this video helped me build confidence and I'll try to stream again thank you 😊

  12. It’s really intriguing, but I guess if this helps or not depends a bit on your personality. I think I would be distraced by the fact that someone is watching, but I’m sure when someone is watching, you won’t flip back and forth between mail/twitter etc, as you also don’t want to show personal stuff. Also I’m curious on what kind of people would sit and watch hours of someone else making a game, isn’t that just procrastinating when they instead could make their own game? πŸ™‚ I’m glad to hear your Twitch is going well though! πŸ˜€

  13. That motivated me to start my Twitch page now..! Thank you very much.. Big fan of your art style.. Please do share how to become a Twitch affiliate..That'd be super helpful.. πŸ˜€

  14. I tried streaming some of my game dev on Twitch a while ago but found I couldn't really stick to a schedule (I tend to dev when the mood takes me). I decided it wouldn't be very fair on viewers if I was just streaming at random times. Maybe one day I'll give it another go. Incidentally, did I spot you adding some neat noise effects to the sprite outline shader from my tutorial at about 2:40? Looks nifty. I'm glad you're making good use of it and adding more features. I might nick that idea πŸ˜‰

  15. By the way, I haven't been able to stream lately as I'm travelling, but I'll hop on again soon as soon as I'm settled! Looking forward to connecting with y'all πŸ™‚

  16. I would love to try out Twitch streaming, mostly just to keep me on a game dev schedule (and keep me focused). Definitely make more videos about Twitch! How to start, things you learned, all that good stuff πŸ˜€

  17. so much extra………………………………………………………………………..

  18. Good stuff. I need to get back into doing twitch again. On average how many days a week would be a good amount (used to do 3 days out of the week)? I would be interested in other videos on the subject.

  19. I really like this video. I thought about streaming game development for a while but didn’t start yet. This Video encouraged me so I probably will do it πŸ˜€
