Get ready for Twitch Plays Detroit: Become Human! Believe it or not, Quantic Dream has decided that it'd be fun to let Twitch chat make the decisions in a playthrough of this narratively-focused game.

If you're not quite up to date with this game, have a taste of the story by checking out this PC Teaser Trailer:

Detroit: Become Human is a third-person adventure game that explores one of Asimov's classic themes: what happens when androids gain sentience? Players will have to make a bunch of choices throughout the story which could lead to freedom for the androids... or it could result in disaster.

Now, Quantic Dream is essentially creating Twitch Plays Detroit: Become Human, giving Twitch Chat the opportunity to decide the fate of humanity's future. (I predict rioting.)
