Daylight, the upcoming procedurally generated haunted hospital game from Zombie Studios, will allow people watching streams of the game to dictate scary events through the Twitch chat interface. Viewers can type something like “boo” into chat and the game will create a sound effect or other event to scare the player. Publisher Atlus says that they will leave it to fans to discover all the special chat texts, and that the words will be on timers so viewers can’t spam them. According to the developers, the feature is meant to give a greater sense of interaction between streamers and viewers. I’m going to type “Frankenberry” and “Ke$ha” over and over while I watch a stream.
Daylight launches on PC and PlayStation 4 on April 8th.
