A live-streamed game that uses spectator input from its chatroom to affect the game itself.
Vici takes player-versus-player games and expands on them, creating a player-versus-player-versus-everybody experience. Vici is, on its face, a straightforward PvP game that is streamed to the popular videogame-viewing site Twitch.tv. However, the game can read from its own Twitch.tv chatroom. Spectators can type commands into the chatroom, which trigger the creation of weapons, monsters, power-ups, and environmental effects in the game world, creating a constantly-shifting playfield for the players to navigate. By using digital technology to give spectators agency, we hope to blur the line between player, spectator, and developer in a way that gives rise to unique and unusual game interactions.
