Hi, everyone! Can you name 3 factors or gameplay / features / mechanics, that make the game more interesting for the streamers / YouTubers to cover? Examples: last moment save, scare jump, sudden death etc.

My interest lies mostly in roguelikes area and their kinds so roguelikes-related examples will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Any mechanic and situation that would make them (or let them) have a strong reaction and create some tension for them and their viewers would do the job.

If you manage to create comedy or fear within your game the work is already half done. There is no specific mechanics and features that achieve this, but how you construct your game experience.

I believe it's all about pacing, like a good horror movie. you need moments of stillness to contrast with the tense action of the game. give the player a chance to catch their breathe before they make a choice that can end a run. Wizard
