Streaming service Twitch is now a games retailer.
Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing and Luftrausers developer Vlambeer is allowing gamers to purchase the Steam version of its next title, Nuclear Throne, through Twitch.
“You can now buy access to the Steam build, Vlambeer emoticons and a subscription to our Twitch.tv channel through Twitch.tv itself,” it says. “If you’re interested in learning about game development, this is where you should buy the game. 60 per cent of revenue goes to us.”
That’s compared to 70 per cent of the revenue through Steam and 90 per cent via Humble Bundle.
The developer will be streaming video of the game’s development on Twitch every Tuesday and Thursday.
Nuclear Throne is heading to Steam Early Access and is also in development for PS4 and PS Vita.
