Unreal Engine 4 plugin for In-Game Twitch Authentication

  • Supported Target Platforms
  • Supported Engine Versions


This is a Unreal Engine 4 plugin for In-Game Twitch Authentication.

The idea for this plugin came while watching the development stream from a fellow Twitch streamer called Wheeze202. He provides his Twitch subscribers early development builds of his current project Galdur to playtest and give him feedback on. His infrastructure was simple, he simply whispered the link to the build when a subscriber entered a command in the Twitch chat.

I saw some flaws in this approach, because now you had to rely on the subscriber to keep the link a secret. I thought there must be a better way. So, I set out to build this plugin to let any Twitch game developer have the ability to let potential subscriber play testers authenticate in-game. Now only subscribers can play the game.

The source code for this plugin is completely open source and available under the MIT license. Find the code here on GitHub.
