Twitch is an ideal service when it comes to broadcasting gameplay sessions and other live events that amass a huge following from gamers. For the next six weeks, however, it will also be an online movie house.
Per an announcement on the company’s blog, the streaming service is teaming up with Austin-based game publisher Devolver Digital to host an online movie event, with new films based around the game industry premiering every Friday, for audiences everywhere to see – free of charge.
Starting today and running through February 20th, Twitch will be host to such films as “Stream Dream,” “Pixel Poetry,” “Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie,” “Gaming In Color,” and “Super Game Jam: The Movie,” with a sixth film to be announced before February 20th.
In addition to the film, filmmakers will also be on the channel, live chatting with the hosts and interacting with the audience.
