Developers are asking fans to vote and interact in the style of Twitch Plays through chat as the company unveils new content for their games for the coming year

Seattle, March 22nd, 2021 – Creators of Rivals of Aether will be hosting their annual company direct on April 1st, but unlike previous years, this time they are asking viewers to participate on Twitch. Much like other Twitch chat interactions, viewers will be able to vote on choices and direction the direct takes as well as play games collectively when revealing the new content coming this year.

“April 1st has somehow become the Rivals of Aether update day. What started as joke blog posts a few years ago grew into our first Rivals Direct in 2018, then the release of an entirely free dating sim game called Lovers of Aether in 2019, then Rivals Direct 2 in 2020. Now we’re back for 2021 and we have to go even bigger and even better because I don’t value my sanity.”

– Dan Fornace, Creator of Rivals of Aether
