What are Stream Raiders?
Developed by the studio Captain.TVStream Raiders has been designed primarily as a 'pastime' between two activities, or as a 'sideline' during a live session. Content creators can launch Stream Raiders alongside their main content, or play a few games before moving on to the rest.
When he takes off on Stream Raiders, he becomes Captain and takes the helm ofa veritable small armyprovided there are enough spectators. The leader and his henchmen must team up to defeat hordes of opponents of all kinds. And to take on the diabolical robots, ice giants and armoured goblins, you'll need a bit of discipline and strategy!
The Captain selects a campaignThe game consists of levels of varying difficulty, culminating in a fearsome boss. During a game, the streamer places his hero on the map and then prepares the action plan. Thanks to the game's management tools, they can offer viewers locations for their units and explain their strategy for going on the offensive.
Everyone can choose from a multitude of different units - Note that you have to unlock them - some very classic, like archers, paladins or thieves, but also others that are stranger and more fun, like a blob, bomber or warbeast. The idea is for the army to include enough units of different classes to stand up to the creatures coming at it.
In the event of victory, the Captain receives a chest containing several awardsSome of these are his own, while others are offered to participants. Thanks to the battle rankings, you can choose to reward the most valiant warriors or leave it to chance! What's more, he can share some of the gold acquired with viewers, so that they can develop their character and become stronger for future battles.
