Bandai Namco Entertainment and Amazon Games have announced Pac-Man Live Studio, an interactive game played through Twitch.
As detailed in the press release (via email) as part of the 40th anniversary of Pac-Man, Pac-Man Live Studio has been announced. The game is playable for free, directly in the game’s live Twitch channel without download.
Along with being able to set high scores and challenge others in Classic Mode, players have access to three other modes. Studio Mode allows players to create and share their own mazes, with the most popular mazes being “more visible on the global charts.”
Endless Mode has up to four players playing simultaneously with only one life per level. They must work together for a cumulative high score on the leaderboards, and individually for the highest score on the team. Select Mode has players working purely cooperatively for a maximum score on the aforementioned community made mazes.
You can find the full rundown (via the official website) and screenshots (via press release) below.
Coming soon: PAC-MAN live on Twitch
Chomp Together! PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO lets you play co-op multiplayer PAC-MAN with your friends online and publish your own mazes to the community – all in celebration of PAC-MAN’s 40th Anniversary!
No download required. Play and create directly in PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO’s Twitch channel.
Chase monthly co-op high scores in Endless Mode. You only live once per level in PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO’s Endless Mode – that’s why you need teammates! So long as at least one person completes the maze, the entire team gets to move on to the next level.
Carry your team one round, and cheer for surviving teammates the next as you chomp together for higher monthly rankings.
Build your own chomping grounds. Want to put fruit in the community diet? Maybe an extra power pellet or two? Create your own mazes using the PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO Maze Creator. Set your own max scores and craft new mazes for Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde to patrol. The more your maze is played and liked by the community, the higher it rises in the Most Popular menu of Select Mazes.
Pac-Man Live Studio launches June 2020 on Twitch.
