Twitch chat has done the seemingly impossible and beaten The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Hundreds of viewers controlled the game and restored Hyrule back to order.

The concept of viewers controlling the game being played on stream is not new. In fact, it was popularized in 2014 with “Twitch Plays Pokemon” which saw the 1996 RPG being beaten in 16 days.

A streaming personality’s audience overcame the same feat, except this time they took on the 2017 Nintendo title Breath of the Wild. The wildly successful Zelda game was beaten in 25 hours.

Twitch chat completes Breath of the Wild

The latest title in the long-running Zelda franchise introduced fans to a massively open-world map. A new physics engine allowed players to interact with the environment like never before.

However Twitch streamer ‘PointCrow’ wanted to see if it was possible for his viewers to defeat the game by inputting controls into the chat. And after multiple streams, they finally slayed villain Calamity Ganon and reached the credits.

The personality posted the accomplishment on his YouTube channel on March 10. The video showed a compilation of clips from the many stream sessions that it took reach the end of the RPG.

The streamer set the rule that every five minutes his chat would control the game, as he needed to take over in certain points. Hilariously, in the beginning the predictable happened and his viewers kept throwing Link off a cliff and killing him.

This isn’t the first time that PointCrow has tackled crazy experiments with the Switch title. In fact, in late February he managed to beat the whole game without walking.

“We have beaten Breath of the Wild without walking. Ever! If not turning left was enough, we have now beaten Breath of the Wild without walking!” he exclaimed.

Despite releasing close to three years ago, Breath of the Wild continues to be popular for streamers on Twitch and social media. The release is already considered a classic by critics and players.

Luckily for fans, a sequel for the AAA title is being worked on. At E3 2019, Nintendo shocked everyone with a trailer teasing the continuation of the popular game – although the release date has not yet been revealed.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
