In 2017, while watching the fast spread of stream lives on YouTube, we developed a platform that adapted Gartic's resources to the streaming universe. Through GarticTube, the streamers choose words and draw them, creating a challenge to their audience to guess the drawings. Also, viewers compete by sending their guesses in real-time via a chat.
Interactivity is stimulated in several ways. At each hit, the viewer's name and photo are displayed on the screen. The round ranking and the accumulated ranking of the match are also displayed. Some comments are selected to be displayed in detail at the end of each turn.
Over 45 weekly editions, divided into two seasons, GarticTube gathered thousands of participants per edition on our official channel. Unfortunately, the project was discontinued when we observed that YouTube could not capture the volume of simultaneous guesses with the growth of accesses. This limitation compromised the project's expansion, and the distribution plans to reach new audiences potentially.
Despite the interruption, the technologies developed for GarticTube were the spark that later contributed to the development of Words On Stream and Gartic On Stream.
