What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Quite frankly, because we’re trying something that’s never really been done before. While there have been a few games with Twitch-interactivity built in, Streamline was built from the ground-up with Broadcasters and their audiences in mind. We’re trying to make real-time interaction between the Broadcaster, their players, and their communities and, well, it’s hard to put that through its paces on our own.

On top of that very real need, we’ve valued open development and tight interaction loops with our community since the company was founded. Early Access allows us to hear what you think, what’s working, and what’s not, all out in the open for everyone to see.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Streamline will be in Early Access for approximately 6 to 9 months and we hope to release in the Spring or Summer of 2017. This should give us the time we need to gather and respond to feedback, ensure large-scale stability, and add the remaining features both Proletariat and the community want.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Through Early Access, we’ll be refining the game, fixing performance issues, and bugs, but most importantly, for the full version, we want to add some major features, possibly including:
  • Additional game modes, such as Team Elimination and Stream vs. Stream
  • New maps, Rules, Bonuses, Clothing, and more additional content
  • More interactivity via Streamote, such as Sponsorship, new mini-games, or even the Twitch equivalent of passing the controller while playing with a friend on the couch
  • A structure for persistent player rankings and game-wide leaderboards
  • New gameplay and progression systems, including more advancement movement options
We also want to explore bringing Streamline to other streaming platforms, such as YouTube, Beam, and Facebook Live.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Streamline is stable and fully playable. It’s already been played by hundreds of Broadcasters with thousands of players, in front of hundreds of thousands of interacting viewers on Twitch. Each game can host up to 16 players on one of five different maps, with dozens of Rules, Bonuses, and Accolades, along with hundreds of pieces of clothing.

Viewers can also use Streamote, a fully responsive website across their desktop, mobile, and tablet web browsers, to play along with the Streamline players.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Streamline is priced lower during Early Access as both a token of our appreciation to you, our early users, helping us to refine and improve the game, but also as a reflection of the work-in-progress nature of Streamline at this time. It is likely that this price will increase when we release the full game to reflect the many additions and improvements we’re making during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’ve always been a very community-focused company and with Streamline, we’re going even further. We have a Discord server that’s open to the public for real-time interaction and chat with and between the community and the developers. Members can use our Discord server to promote their own games of Streamline, organize with other players, give feedback, or just hang out.

We also have twice-weekly playtests of Streamline (at least!), streamed live on Twitch, and open to the community where players can join up with us, check out the current work-in-progress version of the game, and let us know what they think.

On top of that, we’ve stayed open and active on the Steam forums, Reddit, Twitter, and other community sites, both as a company and individual employees.”

Streamline 2.7: New Tutorial and Challenge Maps!



Learn how to play with the new Tutorial mode!
N00bz rejoice…Streamline now has a tutorial! Our master level designers have lovingly handcrafted a set of artisanal Streamline experiences that will guide new players through learning the game’s basic controls. Until now, these techniques have only been passed down by the game’s wise, old sages. Now you, too, can become a true Streamline pro! (Or at least become a competent player a lot more quickly!)

Challenge yourself!
Already an adept Streamline player? Head to the Challenge map to test your skills! We set up an obstacle course that will push your parkour mastery to the limits. Try to make it to the end before time runs out while achieving your highest score! Don’t forget to brag about it to your fellow players. ;)

Other stuff
  • Spawn points have been improved in a variety of scenarios. Situations where Runners spawn near Hunters, Hunters and Runners spawn in locations meant for each other, and Runners spawn directly next to each other should mostly be a thing of the past.
  • Made yet more changes that may fix the now classic Streamline bug where you can’t see non-green gems. Cross your fingers! If it doesn’t work, we’re just going to start calling it a feature. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • The above changes should also resolve the issue where the Bitball goal doesn’t rotate like it should.
  • We put the game’s characters through an extensive agility training program, so there shouldn’t be any more issues with player movement when changing directions while strafing.
  • Ever fall through the floor in Overpass? We patched up that hole.
  • Players can no longer get the Assist and Alley Oop bonuses in Bitball if they score and then score again when the ball respawns. Nice trick, but would have been cooler if you did it on one possession.
  • In some cases, when players respawned as ghosts, they’d be stuck bent at the waist, facing down. It’s sad being a ghost, but we don’t want you to sulk, so you should be able to stand tall if you want to now.
  • It’s a pain when a Hunter leaves during a Tag match, so we made it less painful by automatically assigning a new one when that happens.
  • Throw it back! While it shouldn’t generally happen, if the Bitball manages to leave the Yard, it should now respawn. Play on!
  • More backend tools for our support team so they can help you out even better than before.
  • More localization improvements for our very much appreciated non-English speaking players!

Welcome to Streamline, Humble Bundle purchasers!

It's been so great to see so many new faces jumping into Streamline matches since the Humble Freedom Bundle went on sale! I just want to take a few moments to welcome you all to the community and give you a few tips for finding your way around.

  • If you haven't said hi on our Discord server yet, that's a great first stop. That's where the core community tends to hang out and it's a great place to find a group of people to play with, to ask questions, get support and tips, announce your live streams, and just get to know everyone. The development team is also available there from around 10am-6pm EST every weekday!
  • One of the unique features of Streamline is its integration with Streamote, the web interface we developed to give viewers a chance to directly interact with the games they're watching on Twitch. If you're a broadcaster, it adds a great new layer of fun for your audience. If you're a viewer, you get to directly impact the game through bets and rule changes that affect the game's physics/maps/players in addition to playing a bingo-style mini game that can net you Streamline packs and additional coins for betting/rule changes!
  • There are currently three game modes: Tag, which is great for smaller parties; Elimination, which shines with larger groups; and Bitball, which is a team competition mode.
  • There's a great FAQ over on our support site if you have any questions about Streamline or Streamote. If your questions aren't answered there, you can send our team a message through that site or, of course, you can ask in the support channel on Discord. You can also…
  • Follow us on Twitter! The Streamline account is @PlayStreamline and the Proletariat Inc. account is @Proletariat_inc. We chat with the community there and also make regular announcements about live streams (and will RT your Streamline streams!).
  • There's an official Bitball guide! If you're not quite sure about the rules of our competitive ball game, the guide should help get you up to speed. And, of course, ask on Discord and the community will be more than happy to help.
  • In addition to the community live streams, the development team hosts games live on our Twitch channel three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3-5pm EST. The matches are usually open to the public, so stop by and play with the devs! You can also join our Discord voice chat while you're playing :)

That's all for now! We're all excited to play a bunch with you as we continue early access development. Thanks so much for supporting the Humble Freedom Bundle and welcome to our community!

About This Game

Welcome to Streamline, a fast-paced, third person game built for and around streaming. Take on the role of Broadcaster, Player, or Viewer and change the way the game itself is played!

Stream First

Streamline has been designed and built from the ground up to be perfect for streaming. Broadcasters can easily make parties to play with their communities while stream viewers can bet on players, change the rules of the game in real-time, compete in mini-games, and more to become (in)famous on the stream, all by using Streamote.tv, a unique website integrated on desktop, mobile, or tablet. Streamline is the perfect game for Sub Sundays, Follower Fridays , or just playing together with your friends.

Elimination Mode

Throughout Early Access, Proletariat is developing multiple game modes for Streamline, each featuring one or more broadcasters, up to 16 Players, and tens, or even hundreds of, thousands of Viewers. In the first mode, ‘Elimination’, players free-run around the maps, gather points, and avoid the competition. The Hunter tracks down the Runners and eliminates them from play while streaming to the Viewers. Viewers can bet on the best Runner to win big, change the rules of the game in real-time, and play mini-games like Bingo. Give your Runner an edge by turning the floor into lava or bringing them back from the dead or help the Hunter by restricting the Runners’ movements or making them explode if they touch each other!

The Story So Far

Set in the near future, Streamline pits Runners vs. Hunters in a new sport enhanced by augmented reality and physical skills. After growing tired of mainstream sports with their limited mechanics, overblown sponsorships, and corporate greed, the Streamline Pro League was formed. Taking advantage of their dilapidated surroundings, players in the SPL run, jump, and fly through abandoned shipyards, vacant schoolyards, and crumbling skyscrapers while live streaming all of it to their adoring fans. Runners want to gather up as many points as they can while avoiding the Hunter. If they’re eliminated, they become Ghosts who stay in the game to haunt or help other players.

Streamline brings Stream First gaming to the masses!
