Facebook Live Plays Pokemon is Now a Thing

Facebook Live is the new kid on the block in terms of streaming and having used it once myself at Zelda Informer to some pretty solid success, it’s definitely a pretty serious contender. Twitch Plays Pokemon became a massive phenomum in the past, allowing commenters on a twitch stream to input commands to play and beat Pokemon. This was successfully done for several games and is still running today.

That being said, what about Facebook Live? Is it possible to do the same thing? Well right now one person is running an extremely experimental attempt at it and is getting some fairly good results. Will it be as big as the original? Probably not, but considering Facebook is a bit more limited, it’s going to be very interesting to see if they can indeed beat the game. You “react” to the video and every 5 seconds, whatever reaction hits at that time is taken as the input. Will you participate?

    Awesome, but can someone tell me which program is useful to make an interactive direct (at least with the reaction counter)?

    but which one brings up the start menu?
