Devs can now stream as they work to show users how games are made

New Twitch category shines spotlight on games development

Twitch has added a new category that focuses on games development, offering an insight into the game creation process.

The new category – simply titled Game Development – allows studios to stream footage of their developers working on the game, whether its creating artwork, designing levels or tweaking gameplay mechanics.

The category actually launched on October 16th, according to Polygon, and so far has a few devs showing off their work-in-progress.

"We conducted a Twitch Town Hall session at PAX Prime, which is when we let our community share ideas they would like to see implemented on the platform," said Twitch’s director of community and education Marcus Graham, aka djWHEAT.

"The idea of having a section for game developers was suggested and it resonated with the audience, so that inspired us to add it as a category."
