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 at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, 2am GMT), we'll be playing Stealth Inc 2 from Curve Digital. Stealth Inc 2 is a puzzle platformer in which players must team up with clones of themselves to survive a dangerous test lab.
Update: The stream has ended. Continue reading for impressions, the list of contest winners, and a full YouTube replay of the stream!
Tip: If watching the stream in another window, close this one to avoid audio echoes.
Stealth Inc 2
In Stealth Inc 2, you play as one of many clones who live within a scientific test lab. Your goal is to escape from your creators and perhaps save your fellow clones. To do with, you'll navigate a huge hub world filled with puzzles and complete over 60 distinct levels found within the hub.
Many levels feature cameras that our hero must avoid. If he strays into the camera's cone of vision, a door could shut, the floor could open up into a pit, or a laser might shoot him. So avoiding those camera is important!
Our main clone will also have to work together with other AI-controlled clones. These guys react to things you do, such as running through a door that you open or standing on a switch so that you can reach new areas.
Stealth Inc 2's clone-team and stealth mechanics make this feel unlike any other puzzle platformer series. It also includes a full level editor and online level sharing. Check out my full review for more details.

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!
