Modlands is a game where you build a world full of people, Structures, machines and more, that live and interact. It combines building and Crafting gameplay with simulation gameplay. If you stream it on Twitch, your friends in the chat can also join and play as Characters in the world, alongside the computer-controlled characters.
In Modlands you can explore new lands and fill them with a variety of structures, such as Homes, Farms, Factories, Machines and more. Your idyllic cubic lands are populated with colonists that you can manage and try to keep happy, but if you’re playing on Twitch these colonists can actually be the people in your chat! While watching a player stream Modlands, audience members in the chat can type ‘ilovemodlands’ at any time to instantly spawn a character within the game world and can then type various commands in the chat to control their character.
The charming visuals, fun world building and colony management in Modlands looks like great fun, but it’s the Twitch integration that makes it such an enticing prospect. It allows Twitch players much more interaction with their audience than traditional games as they effectively become overlords of their own micro-MMO populated by their audience.
