Live stream of game development.

Hey, heres another one of my crazy ideas that I wanted to hear what the community thinks about.

I've watched a ton of live streams of video game marathons and was considering doing something similar but only with a "developathon". Basically it would be a live stream of my (or another gs developers) screen and it would be a live broadcast of a game being developed from start to finish. The developer would be commentating over the entire thing and there could even be guest co-commentators. The thing I like most about this is that the audience would be able to provide live feedback to the developer and by the time the game is ready for the app store the game would already have a ton of publicity.

I would be interested in hearing what people think about this and if there are any fellow developers that would want to take part.

    That is a great idea, especially for all of the new developers! I would watch it no question. Livestreams are always fun! Who knows maybe I could learn something new! I think its a great idea.

    This is definately a great idea. I've been doing that during Gamejolt's 48hour game making jam, and it was a lot of fun. All game makers were streaming their progress.

    It would definitely be fun for developers too! Going on a 2 hour or so stream a day while people watch you make your game. But who knows, people might be copying your every move and submit the game before you do!

    I can't get this dang program to work -.- anyone know a good program for live stream, desktop recording on a mac? I was recommended to Dyyno but it only captures my mouse, the rest of the screen is black.

    Try CamTwist.

    I'm pretty sure that LiveStream provided a program that does desktop broadcasting...

    Found this as well. Its a workaround for using a screen recording program and vokle. Vokle is for the live streaming.

    Ok so I finally found something that works. You need to make a livestream account. then download Procaster. I haven't tried going live yet, but it says this is what it is for.

    Not sure you will ever see me broadcasting how frustrated I can get but it might be interesting to see others wigging out over their game development.

    Ustream is free and would give you a channel people can go to like youtube. And that producer allows you to broadcast you screen

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I just tried using it. Whenever you livestream with it, it makes your screen appear blurry to who ever is watching. Hope someone finds a solution
