I have to state that I am not what you would call a superstar Twitch streamer. As a result, much of the appeal and genius that Marbles on Stream offers I will admit is lost on me. However, for those of you that do like to stream on Twitch, you will have a ton of fun with this and a great way to interact with your viewers.

The Game Review
The point of this game is very hard to describe. Basically, there are a ton of marbles, and they race and play against each other on Twitch and your viewers make up the marbles. That is the basic idea of what this is offering to you.
For example, if you are running a stream and have a handful of people watching, you can have each one of those people be one of the marbles. I guess this is a fun way for viewers to feel more involved and connected to the stream that they are watching. It also makes it something that the person streaming does not have to focus all their attention on too.
For a game that is free and rather low on detain, Marbles on Stream does have a lot of charm to the visuals. I liked how different the marbles were ranging from a pumpkin, a panda, and one that I am sure is an ice cream wearing a thong! Although, that could just be the way I am seeing it which says something about me doesn’t it!
There are many different maps that the races can take place on and there is a fair bit of variety and imagination here. I am not saying these maps look amazing, but they certainly have more than enough personality and they fit in with the cute cartoon style of the marbles very well.
So, you have a nice number of viewers in your Twitch stream so what can they do? Well, Marbles on Stream has a nice amount of game modes. You can select race mode which is pretty self-explanatory. There is also a Royale Mode where the marbles battle it out until one is left.
There is a mode called Tilted where the idea is that the map gets tilted as you try to get marbles to the finish of the course. You can also create your own maps which you can then share with the community so that they can use them on their own stream. I think this is a great idea and there are already some very clever maps out there thanks to the community.
As I am not someone who is into Twitch streaming, Marbles on Stream is not a game for me. Yet, I can see why there is an appeal here. It is a free to play game and something fun for Twitch streamers to play so that their viewers can also be part of the show and have some extra fun.
