Dubbed ‘Game Development’, this category lets you watch people developing games live.

The new category has been live for a few days. For instance if you go check it right now, you will find people streaming asset modeling, getting work done in Unity, and doing some modding as well.

“We conducted a Twitch Town Hall session at PAX Prime which is when we let our community share ideas they would like to see implemented on the platform,” said Marcus ‘djWHEAT’ Graham, director of community and education at Twitch.

“The idea of having a section for game developers was suggested and it resonated with the audience, so that inspired us to add it as a category.”

This might just be the best thing on Twitch since Salty Bet.
