We wanted to help broadcasters engage with their viewers. We decided that a Family Feud style game would be a super fun way for broadcasters to get viewers involved in their stream.
What it does
The extension game is similar to Family Feud. Viewers create Family Feud styled questions with 3 options as answers. Such as: Q: "What is your favorite food?" A) Hotdogs B) Hamburgers C) Chipotle
Other viewers are shown the question and choose 1 of the 3 answers.
Next, the broadcaster chooses their answer.
Finally, the broadcaster's choice is revealed along with the amounts of selections for each answer. Viewers get points for if they were correct.
How we built it
We built it using React as the frontend and we plan on using the Configuration Service and Extension Backend Service for the backend.
Challenges we ran into
The backend was challenging and we ran into problems setting it up on our local environments.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
A few accomplishments we're proud of:
- Turning a concept into a Frontend MVP
- Creating a React frontend for the Streamer Trivia extension
What we learned
We learned a lot about the Twitch extension ecosystem. We also learned how diverse Twitch streamers and viewers are. It was super interesting and we hope to continue building Twitch extensions.
What's next for streamer-trivia
We want to add in a backend that utilizes the Configuration Service and submit the extension for official review.
