Forced Showdown, an upcoming deck-building meets twin stick combat game from BetaDwarf, will take an interesting approach to its launch price. Essentially, the price will be dictated by how many people watch pre-launch streams of the game on Twitch.
Spectators will also get additional discounts if they are selected when the streamer performs certain tasks and could be granted instant access to the game.
The starting price is $19.99, but will fall based on minutes viewed. There is a cap in place though; you can see the price's progress on the Forced Showdown site, where it mentions a 460,000 minutes viewed cap.
Forced Showdown presents players with four gladiators to choose from, each with their own fighting style. There is also a deck building element where players can choose cards, which are doled out between rounds, that supplement their abilities.
You can follow the price progress on the Forced Showdown website and keep an eye on Twitch for streams over the next week.
