Name: Wheel of Noms
Project: Twitch AFK Extensions
Team: AGS Extensions Team
Goal: Create an extension streamers used to entertain viewers while they are away from the stream.
The team decided to focus on two extensions; I was a part of the AFK(Away From Keyboard) extension. The goal of this extension was to give streamers a way to step away from their broadcast and not lose their audience. Viewers could pass the time while the streamer is away by playing various mini apps within the AFK extension.
Wheel of Nom Rules:
Players spin until they either click the “nom out” button and turn in their points or they land on the Stinky Cheese and it resets their score. The multiplier rewards players for continuing to spin even if they have strong score.
Once time is up the score gained by the player is recorded to a leader board. Streamer can choose to congratulate viewers who participated on their scores.
It was refreshing to build something from the ground up, and I learned a lot about designing with streamers’ needs in mind.
