The highly-anticipated new installment in the Life is Strange series, True Colors, will support streaming platform Twitch’s Crowd Choice function, through which viewers can vote on and influence choices made in gameplay that will affect the narrative’s outcome., live, as the streamers play the game. The Life Is Strange series is notable for its narrative focus and extreme dependence on player choices, so streamers who use the crowd choice function will definitely feel the ramifications of their viewers’ decisions.

What is Crowd Choice?

With Crowd Choice, streamers will be able to incorporate audiences into decision making in two modes: Full Democracy, through which audience votes make the decisions, or Suggestion, in which streamers can see how their audience votes and take it into consideration, but ultimately make the decisions themselves.

Streamers can install the tool quickly and easily through twitch by looking up the Square Enix Crowd Choice extension.

Given how vividly the stories and narrative choices of the Life Is Strange series have stuck in the minds of players and fans, turning decision making into a more active experience for twitch audiences is a smart way to make True Colors’ narrative feel even more tense and immediate. For streamers, the tension of watching your audience vote for a bad decision might be maddening. Similarly, a split decision in the crowd vote, or a streamer who ignores the crowd’s advice with disastrous results would likely make for memorable streaming moments.
