STREAMING IN RUNESCAPE
RuneScape is a game that game lends itself well to streaming. There is high skill gameplay for those interested in watching skilled players do content and lax content that allows for high stream interaction. However, the Runescape streamers’ community is small, and we wanted to find a way to encourage new streamers who may never have streamed before. We decided on creating a Streamer Package explicitly branded for the RuneScape community, which included overlays, alerts, transitions and social links, all available from the StreamLabs website for easy download.
EASY TO USE
We designed the Streamer Package around two ideals; easy to use and high-quality visuals. We created the package to work out of the box with minimal user setup. Some customisation options, such as camera size and placement and social links, had to be updated by the user. Still, the core package of overlays, transitions, and alerts was set up for immediate use. We also included helpful instructions for anyone unsure of how each part functioned.
Along with all the visual assets, we also provided guidelines on various aspects applicable to streamers, such as tech recommendations for audio and video, what music to play and where to get royalty-free music, as well as advice on setting up your background for a good stream environment. The aim was to take as much of the extra work off the streamers, which allowed them to focus on what they do best; entertaining their audience.
The stream package is available for download on Streamlabs if you want to check it out or even start streaming!
