Even hunting virtual animals can get you a following online.
Twitch today released the trailer for Ironsights, the company’s first in-house mini-documentary. Twitch is a live-streaming site that attracts more than 100 million users a month. Now, it is creating these documentaries to showcase its community. The full film will debut on Twitch on April 7.
“There are a lot of amazing stories to tell about the Twitch community, which rarely get the attention they deserve,” said Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham, director of Twitch Studios, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “With Twitch Studios, we are looking to shine a light on these stories and celebrate our community. A great example of this is Ironsights, which is how Sara Erlandson, one of our community members, made a name for herself in the highly competitive Big Buck HD scene.”
Big Buck HD is an arcade hunting game. The Big Buck Hunter series started in 2000 and has become a fixture in arcades and bars.
The 22-year-old Erlandson was a bar owner herself in Wisconsin. The 22-minute documentary is about her traveling to the Big Buck World Championship in Austin, Texas.
