Daylight lets you scare players via Twitch stream

People have been doing some insane stuff with Twitch as of late--like collectively play Pokemon. While many know the streaming service as a way of watching games, it's increasingly becoming a platform to interact with games.

Zombie Studios has integrated a neat feature into the PS4 version of Daylight. Yes, you'll be able to hit the "Share" button to stream your gameplay, but you can also invite Twitch players to affect your game through the chat interface.

For example, when someone watching a stream types the word "Meow" into the chat, it could cause the game to make a corresponding sound of a cat. (This example may not actually make it into the final game, Atlus notes.) Given that Daylight has players walking around scary, lonely environments, these surprise interactions could be quite creepy. Of course, to prevent spamming, there will be a built-in timer. Finally, Atlus doesn't plan on releasing the list of words that can trigger in-game effects. "You're going to have to find them through experimentation."

Players will be able to start experimenting and injecting creepy meows on April 8th--the game's official new release date. The game will cost $14.99 on PC and PS4.
