Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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 2.4: Bitball team mode, Winter items, Steam integration, new languages, and more!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We have a shiny new update for you that features some of the most exciting additions to the game yet, including a new game mode, winter customizations, localization into six new languages, Steam integrations, and much more! Welcome to Streamline 2.4!

Bitball: Streamline’s new TEAM game mode!

It’s time to rally your team and take on your rivals! Bitball is a new mode that finally brings team competition gameplay to the fast-paced world of Streamline. Grab your friends (or jump into a Quick Matched game) and battle it out against other teams to see who will reign supreme!

Two teams compete in Bitball, racking up points by scoring on each other’s goals. Match hosts can make teams and stream viewers can place bets on the winning team (along with the usual Streamote features). Bonus: everyone who plays is rewarded, win or lose!


Don’t forget to check out our full guide to Bitball!

Play without Twitch! (if you want to)
No Twitch? No problem! The players have spoken and we’ve removed the requirement of using a Twitch account as your Streamline login (though you’ll still need a Twitch account to make use of Streamote functionality…for reasons). Players can now simply use their Steam name to play with their friends on Steam, join other matches, and more. Need help figuring out how to use this new integration? Check out the Streamline Steam Integration FAQ!

Deck your halls—Winter Holiday content has arrived!
Just in time for those chilly winter Streamline sessions, we’ve added new Winter Holiday packs! Celebrate the season with new character customizations that are sure to keep you cozy and festive. They’re only available for a limited time, so be sure to collect them while you can! Another bonus: the Winter packs have their own custom look—unwrap your gifts just like they’re real presents (and not just your gym bag)!



Multiple language support!
Bienvenue! Willkommen! Benvenuto! ¡Bienvenido! Bem vinda! Добро пожаловать! The game’s text is now localized into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian languages! There are still a few gaps while we finish the translations but the bulk of the work is available now for your reading pleasure.

More party management options in Streamline!
You’re now able to create your party and manage its settings from within Streamline. Stay in the game and get your next match started more quickly without bouncing to other windows!

Movement and combat changes
We’ve made a number of changes to movement and combat to emphasize the fun and reduce the grief:
  • Stun duration has been reduced from 3 to 2.5 seconds.
  • Increased the dash distance for non-Hunter air attacks.
  • Improved attack aim assist and hit detection.
  • Players who are stunned can no longer be knocked back again during the stun.
  • Punching now cancels the stun invulnerability players gain while stunned.
  • Punching now ends your boost chain.
  • Reduced the duration of the stun invulnerability from 2 seconds to 1 second.
  • Movement speed while sliding has been reduced.
  • Wall running while boosting is now faster!
  • Fixed a bug that could cause extremely fast speeds while wall-running.

Other changes
  • Streamline can be launched directly from URLs, including joining a party and getting in their game.
  • When you’re killed, you’re told why and how so you can hopefully not repeat it.
  • In-game chat will no longer display Streamote messages from Twitch.
  • In-game chat now supports rich text, including color and word-wrap.
  • Point “Orbs” have been renamed “Gems.”
  • Due to the above, the “Multiball” rule has been renamed “Gem Frenzy.”
  • It’s now possible to skip the betting and rule purchasing phases. In the case of multiple broadcasters, everyone must agree to skip.

Fixes
  • A wide variety of obscure crashes have been fixed.
  • Fixed a few different issues people had with hosting matches.
  • The Floor Is Lava no longer injures players on bouncers in Game Con.
  • The Buzzed hair now only has one set of color options instead of two.
  • Dying from Rules no longer results in empty boosts upon respawn.
  • Items and colors that can’t be earned in packs by players don’t appear as locked in the inventory anymore.
  • Inventory no longer shows lock icons on colors that don’t actually exist.
  • Fixed some issues around Slo’ Thuggin’ and Yakety Hill and how they interacted with respawn times and music.
  • Fixed a problem where music did not always play during a match.
  • Fixed a problem with kicking players who have already left from games/parties.

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!

  • Built from the ground up as a Stream First Game for Broadcasters, Players, and Viewers to play together!

  • Customize your character with hundreds of pieces of clothing in a rainbow of colors.
