This week has been hectic, but I still want to Twitch Stream the IFComp games this year. I had a blast, and the authors seemed to mostly like it.

https://www.twitch.tv/lglasser
(I will start Monday at 2pm Central Standard Time, then continue on Mon-Fri, playing at least 2 hrs / day.)

I still want the order to be somewhat randomized, but I want to be a little bit better about that distribution this year. I'd like to:
-have a pattern of 2 small games + 1 large game per stream
-move around the schedule if the game authors can't watch immediately

Please, if you're an author, PM me whether you consider your game shorter (~30mins) or longer (definitely more than 30 mins). I'll randomize the list by Sunday night.

Okay, here's my intended play order (1 short + 1 medium + 1 long /OR/ 1 short + 1 extra long). If you're an author who can't make a day but you want to, PM me and I'll see if I can swap yours out.

I'll add short reviews and divided up clips after I finish the day.

Again, I'll be starting at 2pm CST on Monday!

Nice... spreading the word of this in 3 2 1...

For Tuuli (next week if the schedule goes well), I can't see the show Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so if you could change it to Tuesday or Thursday then I could join the show.

I think I've calculated correctly the change of hours. It is 9 pm for England and 10 pm for Spain.

For reference, unless anything has changed, LGlasser has been very good about saving the streams as videos that are watchable after the fact. Of course watching live is a special thrill, but if you miss it, not all is lost.

The UK is enjoying British Summer Time (a.k.a. Daylight savings time), UTC+1, until October 29th. Therefore the stream will be live at 8 PM in UK time (BST). On October 29th and subsequently, when Greenwich Mean Time (UTC) takes over from British Summer Time, the stream will begin at 7 PM in UK time (GMT).

The stream will begin at 9 PM in Spanish time (UTC+2). Spain also has DST so on October 29th and after, the stream will begin at 8 PM in Spanish Time (UTC+1).

Monday's games:

(Note: I had an issue with sound that caused a bad echo starting towards the end of Domestic Elementalism. I know what caused it and I'll have it fixed by tomorrow.)

Hexteria Skaxis Qiameth
This was cute and I loved the feeling of simultaneously playing with words while learning about these cultures that did the same.

Domestic Elementalism Echo starts on this game.
This was a fantastic game! Great concept, great system to serve that concept, great puzzles, great descriptions. I hit a few rough edges, but I was overall delighted by the game. I'm bummed that there was an echo that ruined this recording, because this is probably one of my favorite comp games.

Escape from Terra The echo is really bad on this one.
I had trouble getting the game and the walkthrough to work, which is a shame because it seems clear that a lot of work went into this game. I may revisit it at the bottom of the pile once I've had a chance to try the other games (and once I've figured out how to get a working walkthrough).

I'll switch the the Tuuli cluster to take place on the previous day, then (replacing Rainbow Bridge + Charlie The Robot). Cheers!

Hi! I notice that you're planning on streaming my game, Guttersnipe: St. Hesper's Asylum, on Wednesday. Could I reccommend that you play the downloaded version, if possible? A few people have reported some lag with the online version. Thanks!
