A downloadable app for Windows
Hi, people of Itch!
Caffeine is a social broadcasting platform for gaming, entertainment, and the creative arts. Built from scratch, it's simple, powerful, and fun to use. In other words, we did all the hard work for you! All you have to do is play your game and have real conversations with your friends and fans. What makes Caffeine unique?
Caffeine cares deeply about developers. When broadcasters (and Caffeine) make money, developers should too! If you've made a game that is as fun to watch as it is to play, you should be sharing in the platform's revenue. Our monetization system financially rewards developers of every size for sharing the content they've worked so hard to create.
Other platforms have a massive delay between you and your audience—sometimes a full minute! Caffeine is fast: less than a second. It feels like you are in the same room as your friends and fans!
No Partner Program Required
Monetize your content through the use of digital items and without the need of a partnership program. As viewers purchase digital items to participate in and enhance broadcasts, Caffeine will award broadcasters with credits based on this activity. Apply to cash out your credits for real money.
Single Screen Friendly
Reactions appear in your game, so you don't need a second screen for chat windows. Reactions are filtered to show the best comments for you. Now you can play and chat without missing anything.
Zero viewers? Not anymore. Caffeine instantly shares what you watch or broadcast with your followers. You can also share your broadcast on Twitter and Facebook.
Download Caffeine, sign in, and you're done. No need to mess with bit rates, IP addresses, stream keys or any of that nonsense. You are ready to broadcast!
If you use OBS, you can still use it with Caffeine. Just run OBS and Caffeine will automatically detect it - no stream key required!
We’re just getting started and have plenty of surprises on the way.
Extract the zip file to a folder of your choice, and run caffeine-itch.exe.
Before running Caffeine on Windows 7 or 8, please install the latest .Net Framework from Microsoft.
