Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight we playedGiana Sisters: Twisted Dreams from Black Forest Games. Twisted Dreams is a challenging platformer in which players switch between the two Giana Sisters who are trapped in parallel worlds. We even gave out more than 10 codes for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam!

How to watch Twitch livestreams
What's the best way to experience Twitch? The Twitch website on your PC or Mac web browser. If you don't have or prefer not to use a computer, you can get the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Xbox 360 Twitch apps and watch from the comfort of your couch. Android and iOS both have official and unofficial Twitch apps to choose from as well.
On Windows Phone, you'll have to grab an unofficial app. There are several to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Only one app lets you search directly for our channel, though. If you use the others you'll have to find and follow us from a web browser first. Read the roundup to learn more!
Next stream in two weeks
Want to know what's next for Windows Central's Twitch programming? I'm taking next weekend off from streaming in order to attend Bethesda's gaming convention QuakeCon.
Don't despair! We'll be back on Saturday, August 1st with a super fun stream: Quiplash from Jackbox Games. Like Fibbage and Jackbox Party Pack, Twitch viewers can play along without actually owning the game. Join us August 1st at the usual time: 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, 2am GMT) for some silly multiplayer fun.
We hope you'll tune in as often as you can! Set a recurring alarm on your phone so you'll always know when it's time for the stream to start.
The following people are twisted, but lucky!
Thanks to Black Forest Games for providing tonight's prizes. Thanks also to our Twitch stream moderators for keeping the peace and giving away the prizes!
