Twitch Plays Pokemon
Posted 23 February 2014 - 07:27 PM
Stream of pokemon red except all the commands are controlled by what players type in the chat. Been going for around 11 days, started with a small following of like 200 players and has blown up to around 60k people watching at all times. Around day 4 the guy hosting the stream enabled "Democracy" mode which tallies votes for commands every 20 seconds, so the viewers could get past some of the more difficult points in the game, like taking pokemon out of the PC or getting past the Safari Zone. With few exceptions, the entire game has been played in Anarchy, where the commands are almost random because of lag and how many viewers have been inputting commands into the chat.
Strange nicknames, getting stuck trying to walk past ledges, teaching a ratatta bubblebeam, the random releases of pokemon, trying to use a helix fossil for the past 10 days, and the strange religion/cult following the stream have kept me more enthralled than the olympics.
google doc with a bunch of links and some history:
the story up to around day 7, and some explanation to the cult:

I have no doubt they'll finish the game eventually.

It seems like Destiny (some faggot starcraft streamer) is trying to get his viewers to release Bird Jesus through Democracy, so they're trying to use the safe route of depositing a pokemon at the daycare so they can get the Zapdos from the PC.

Bird Jesus is the nickname the viewers of the stream have given the level 60 Pidgeot, since it's carrying the team. In pokemans, if you have more than 6 pokemon, any additional ones are stored in the PC (PCs in every pokemon center, used for storing pokemon and items, and releasing unwanted pokemon). Normally moving pokemon in and out of the PC is just a small chore, but with 60,000 people, it is a huge task, especially since 1 mistake will end up in pokemon getting released and lost forever.
A small workaround is the pokemon daycare: they take a pokemon from your active party of pokemon, and raise it for you: gaining experience everytime you take a step in the pokeman world. Ideally they'd drop off the pokemon they dont need (zubat) and then go into the PC, and then spam A to get the Zapdos out. Zapdos is the first pokemon in the PC box, so they can get it out without having to move about the menus if they just spam A, and don't risk releasing it.
