Twitch star Chance 'Sodapoppin' Morris was taken by surprise when a low budget horror game startled him so much that he jumped out of his chair.
Horror games have long been a staple of Twitch, as viewers enjoy watching their favorite personalities get scared out of their minds. However, sometimes jumpscares can get the best of them.
This is what happened to popular streamer Sodapoppin during his March 18 broadcast. Playing a seemingly harmless title quickly turned into a startling experience that had his headphones flying off.
Sodapoppin trolled by jumpscare
The streamer was trying to decide what to play for his audience when he decided to open up his list of games to tackle. He then came across a horror game called 'Tikyo Loves You.' At first, he was hesitant to try out the low budget-looking game, but then said "f**k it, let's take the plunge, I'll play it."
After reading notes and running around for about seven minutes, Soda started to think it was just an endless hallway as the level began to repeat itself. "So I'm reading notes from another dude. Sounds to me like he died. Or got tickled or something," he laughed.
"It's a really scary game," he said sarcastically. He then turned the corner and from out of nowhere a massive monster rushed him. Soda screamed and knocked his headphones off as he jumped from out of his seat, instantly regretting his sarcastic words.
Shaking off the jumpscare, he stretched his arms before sitting back down and talking to his chat. "Phew! I had to stretch. That was crazy!" he said, jokingly playing it off.
It appeared the entire purpose of the game was to get to that moment, as the ending credits popped up for the streamer afterwards. "And I beat it!" he said, quitting out.
The Twitch star didn't seem too thrilled with the horror title, as he told his viewers " That f**king blew a*s. I didn't like that at all." Although seeing a silver lining to the experience, he exclaimed "But at least I got to stretch my legs!"
While the streamer was clearly startled enough to jump out of his seat, it could have happened to the best of them. If nothing else, this is a good example of how even a lower budget horror game can still bring the scares.
