Australian Twitch streamer ‘Empirrre’ found out the hard way that horror games have interesting ways of making players jump, as evidenced in his July 29 broadcast of Layers of Fear.
Twitch streamers are always being baited into jumpscares in one way or another, whether that’s through playing a video game or their chat trying to troll them.
Australian horror game enthusiast Empirrre fell victim to the former, when he streamed a game of Layers of Fear on July 29 – his reaction was epic.
When horror streams get too spooky
The Aussie streamer was playing through the horror title when he came across an enemy hiding in the ceiling of the room he was in. “Oh, you can fuck off!” he exclaimed upon noticing it.

The monster then appeared to disappear, much to Empirrre’s delight. The streamer innocently continued on with his playthrough, before his screen went dark and he was suddenly fronted by the freakish foe again.
The horror enthusiast got so scared by the sudden appearance of the monster, he accidentally clicked out of the entire game in fright. “UH!” he jumped, as he raised his hands above his head in shock. “Holy SHIT!”
Empirrre’s reaction goes above and beyond the normal jumpscare response, as presumably not many people have actually fully exited out of a game by accident out of shock reflex. His prior “Oh, you can fuck off!” comment made it all the more funnier.
He’s not the only streamer to have an epic jumpscare reaction
The streamer was roaming the halls of a psychiatric hospital after the power went out, trying to find backup generators to restore the light. She was successful in her mission and powered the generator, but got the fright of her life after she turned around.

“AHHHHHHHHH!” she screamed, as an enemy popped in right in front of her. “I’m so sorry! I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean it, I didn’t mean it!”
Horror games have always been popular on Twitch, even in months that aren’t anywhere near October’s Halloween season.
