Can Twitch work together to play Hearthstone?

Live Show: We've got the full PAX build of Hyper Light Drifter
by Spencer Hayes

If you haven't heard of Hyper Light Drifter then you better pay attention because you're in for a treat. If you have heard of the gorgeous Kickstarter success story you also better sit down -- we're about to blow your mind.

Attendees at PAX East will be treated to one of the first ever public showings of the game, but I'm not going to PAX East. What does that mean to you, Destructoid faithful? Well it means that we've worked a little magic and we're going to be streaming the entirety of the public build. This is the longest that the game has ever been shown on Twitch.tv and that's kind of blowing my mind.

Don't get up yet, because I'm not done yet: We're also having the developers on the show to answer any and all questions you may have. It'll be just like going to PAX but a little lonlier and probably a little more sober. It all goes down today at 2:00PM PDT on Dtoid.tv. This is going to be a show to remember.
