Join Key-Glyph on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and sometimes Sundays on her Twitch channel for three different flavors of gaming goodness!

Apple IIsdays
Tuesdays, 6 PM Pacific: Extremely casual meanderings through my Apple IIe software. Captured from genuine hardware, i.e. my actual childhood computer.

Retro Thursdays
Thursdays, 6 PM Pacific: Pre-7th generation gaming. Mostly 8-bit and 16-bit, mostly emulated. Always chill. Stick around for the afterparty at 7:30 PM for casual chat and play-by-request chiptunes!

Sunday Supplementals
Sunday, 4 PM Pacific: Occasional streams of ongoing playthroughs, non-retro, and repeat games. These are bonuses that don't happen every week, so please keep an eye on notifications if you're interested.

If you want to watch the archived streams, please check out the different playlists on my YouTube page. Thanks all, and hope to see you in the chat. <3

Original Post, for posterity:
Hey guys! I'm trying out something new this month: weekly retro gaming streams on Twitch!

The thought process behind this was twofold. First, I love playing video games already, and often do so to chill out at night. Two, I love gaming as a social thing, either by watching loved ones play or playing in a room filled with loved ones. So then I thought... why not try recreating this atmosphere on the internet?!

So if you guys want to sit around in a laid-back, positive retro situation and shoot the breeze with fellow enthusiasts while I muck about on the Genesis, NES, and other such consoles, please drop on in. The stream is clean and the games probably won't be anything edgier than Contra: Hard Corps, so unless the chat goes off the rails, your kids are welcome too! Rated E for Everyone.

Streams are Thursday nights from about 8:30 PM to 10:00 PM eastern. Hope to see some of you Racketfolks in there!

I can attest that the stream is grade A quality with some super cool people in the chat. Just a lot of VGM and retro game enthusiasts having a jolly time.

My work schedule means I'll probably not make the actual streams, but I at least followed so I can check out some archives. :)

Hey guys, thanks for the interest!

Bogus isn't kidding when he says the chat is full of super cool people. The majority of them were listeners of my podcast, and that show was entirely focused on community sharing and positivity, so it's a crowd that basically self-selected for kindness and enthusiasm. They also mostly know each other, so there's a lot of vibrant inter-chat instead of just isolated comments directed solely at me -- which is awesome, and exactly the vibe I was hoping for.

I know you all have games to play yourselves and other streams to watch, so I'll do my best to keep the original post in this thread updated with what I'll be streaming on a particular week. That way you can tune in if I'm doing something that particularly interests you.

This Thursday (August 9th) is Sonic Spinball. READY TO FRY?

I honestly don't watch many streams, but I do plan to subscribe for those rare occasions.
