Summary

Spoka is an exploratory resource gathering game built to be played on Twitch. Imagine Pikmin except each of your Pikmin is controlled by your Twitch viewers. You will need to the help of your Twitch community in order to explore, collect resources and expand your reach!

My Part

My main responsibility was building the system to pull chat from a Twitch IRC chat system into Unity.

  • Implemented system to spawn a Spoka for each new user that joins the chat
  • Built system to flexibly parse IRC chat for commands that will control that user’s Spoka
  • Game would also display individual Twitch users chat messages above their Spoka in the game world
