Playing video games might seem like the perfect thing to do for any Twitch streamer looking to build up a fanbase on the platform, but this didn’t exactly go to plan. 

Those who have been playing online for quite some time might remember some of the most popular flash mini-games to have spread like wildfire, including the World’s Hardest Game, 8 Ball Pool, and The Impossible Quiz. 

However, not everything that you will find online will be quite as fun as those three. In fact, many PC users will also remember one of the most terrifying experiences they might have had in their youths – when a scary figure pops up on the screen. 

Scary MazeThe Scary Maze game went viral long ago and has finally returned.

You guessed it, the Scary Maze game is back and it’s back with a bang, petrifying another poor soul in the former of streamer ‘flyingtuna’ when he least expected it. Thanks to Reddit user MooshPMC, we can see its return in style with a perfect reaction to boot.

For those who have never seen this game before, players are given the chance to complete a number of different maze puzzles. It’s a strategy game by nature, but with a ticking time bomb running in the background that the user just cannot control.

A scary lady, who looks as if she would fit perfectly in the cast of The Walking Dead TV series, appeared and the streamer who fell victim to the prank this time couldn’t believe his eyes. In fact, he didn’t have time to think.

The player screamed right back at the scary graphic, rubbing their hands through their hair, and fled away from the view of the camera. 

While he might have felt somewhat embarrassed by what unfolded during his broadcast, the chat would be lying if they suggested they wouldn’t react in a similar way if they never knew what was coming. It happens to the best of us.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”


After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
