Hey there, I recently saw a stream of MMORPG Tycoon 2, and one of the viewers there had a really, really interesting idea I thought I’d share here, for a long, long ways down the development line!
The viewer was talking about, in the future, how they’d love a multiplayer mode where streamers could share a link or code or some such in their stream, and viewers who had bought MMORPG Tycoon 2 could use that link or code to connect to the streamer’s session as one of the random player characters. Choosing a name, and picking their starting class, then spawning in like normal.
Tons of work to make the change, and maybe not feasible or practical to do, but I think it’d be a ridiculously cool feature to be able to join your favourite streamer and actually play along in the game they’re building real-time.
What are other people’s thoughts on it? Any ideas for neat features that could come from this or changes to current implementation? I think it’d be a blast though.
