Hey everyone! Remember that little Streamline update we released last week? The one with loads of shiny new content, like spoopy Halloween customizations, a sweet new game mode, and tons of other improvements for Streamline and Streamote? Well, we are so excited about this huge release that we’re holding a special event this week in celebration—the Streamline Creative event!
We’ve partnered with a group of ultra-talented Twitch Creative artists to create pieces of Streamline fan art in their own unique styles for this event. From digital painting to leatherworking, anime to pin-up, these artists represent a wide variety of styles. We can’t wait to see each artist’s personal twist on Streamline’s art style!

Speaking of Streamline’s art style, have you ever wondered about the inspiration behind its aesthetic? Our Art Director, Damon, had this to say about it:
“Streamline’s world is a bright, colorful, dystopian near-future. The visuals are a blend of reality, and virtual reality rendered with a simplified, playful punk aesthetic. Notable influences for our work on Streamline were films like The Warriors, Fifth Element, Akira, Hackers, Brazil, Tron, Total Recall, and games like Jet Set Radio, Sunset Overdrive, and Mirror’s Edge.”
Participating artists will be streaming the creative process live throughout the week on their respective channels, so be sure to keep an eye out for creative streams with the hashtag #Streamline in their titles! (Some of the artists have already started—check out these VODs from Suchikuchi and DJTechlive!) We’ll also be announcing their streams on our Discord and our Twitter to make sure you don’t miss any of the action. And if you do miss a creative stream, not to worry—we’ll be showing off the final art pieces during a special Streamline live stream on our channel this Friday, October 28, from 3:00-5:00pm Eastern Time, so be sure to tune in!
