TwitchKittens is one of the largest streaming communities there is. You can join up at TwitchKittens and find new streamers to work with. Discord is where it’s at these days and you can easily get in touch with small to mid-sized streamers this way. After you have joined TwitchKittens I suggest you get in touch with the admins in the Discord. They are the best folks to help you to spread awareness of your game.

Noiz.gg comes recommended by one of the guys who can get you in touch with basically anyone in the genre. This dude is like an octopus who has his hands everywhere. I seriously do not know how he seems to be everywhere and in every streaming community. Does he sleep ever? Is still a mystery for us all. The dude I’m talking about is Kyle aka ModestMarill. But let’s talk about Noiz!

Noiz is a service where streamers and game developers can join to. People at Noize will help you to get in touch with streamers. Currently, as I’m writing this post there seems to be 683 streamers online in the discord. So this certainly is one place you should check upon. For you, I would straight up suggest that you would join Noiz discord server and contact the Noiz team. So they can help you get started there to spread awareness of your game for other streamers.

StreamersGuides – Guides for Streamers

Oooh this place is awesome! So many good guides for streamers. Bwahaha sorry, I had to. But for reals. Not that many know that I actually offer spots for new and interesting software. We got a pretty nice list of streamers in the email list that are eager to get and play new games and stream them.

They just don’t have the numbers that high yet that they would even consider asking for game keys. The traffic in here mostly consists of smaller and starting up streamers so if they are your cup-of-tea I could possibly help out. You can easily get in touch with me via Twitter or through the form over here.
