Daylight: Stream Viewers Control The Terror

Zombie Studios has included the ability to scare your friends further with Stream chat commands in Daylight.

Developer Zombie Studios upcoming, procedurally generated survival horror title Daylight is going to include some intense features for those looking for more scares. The PlayStation 4’s Share option is growing larger by the day and the development team intends to make use of this aspect of the new console in Daylight.

The biggest feature, the one that excited me more than anything else, is the ability for stream viewers to scare the player. I may not be able to personally stream any gameplay at this time, but that doesn’t mean I won’t watch, happily ensuring the person I am viewing is scared to death a little extra.

PS4 Multimedia Integration –

This is a very cool feature that we’re super stoked about. It’s no secret that Daylight is extremely friendly for the PS4′s “Share” button (ditto, PC streaming). The tinkerers at Zombie Studios found a way to use Twitch chat to cue in-game events. The example we’ve been tossing around (and is in no way final) is that someone watching a stream types the word “Meow” into the chat, which causes the game to make a corresponding sound of a cat. So yes. You can literally scare your friends now by watching them stream. There are two caveats to this:

1. They’re all on timers, so you can’t spam them. That would be ridiculous.
2. We’re not going to tell you the full list of words. You’re going to have to find them through experimentation.

It may take quite some time to figure out all the hidden word commands to give people the creeps. No doubt once they’re all discovered we can find them on either Reddit or NeoGAF, that’s where everything goes.

What do you think of the ability to scare your friends in-game while watching a stream?

Daylight will be released on PC and PlayStation 4 on April 8th at a price of $14.99/€14.99/£11.99
