Today marks the anniversary of a journey I embarked on, 2 years ago. Inspired by PAPA I cobbled together some crappy webcams and ran them through defunct mac software.
Streaming on a mac at the time was not a thing and turned out to be quite a hurdle. The first game we streamed was a donated Tron from our good friend Gavin Miller.
Month to month we upgraded and tweaked the stream to get it to where it is today, and we’re still working on it.
Our first big break was at the Chicago Pinball Expo where The Walking Dead was being revealed. Jody saw me sitting in the lobby with all my duck taped and cobbled together gear and asked if I wanted to stream the launch party.
Since then, I’ve been invited out to show off new machines before release from many manufacturers, asked to host tournaments and parties, and now asked to run a whole pinball area at a major convention for twitch.
Pinball was not a recognized category on Twitch until I worked with them on adding it to the database and designing a look for it. Now there are close to a hundred pinball streamers on Twitch (people that have streamed it at least once) and I couldn’t be more excited!
This has all been an amazing trip and I can’t thank you folks enough for all your love and support. Here’s to many more years to come!
Huge thanks to all my supporters and @Twitch for changing my life. ️
