We are two German engineers with 10 years of experience each. Patrick “Psytek” Korzeniewski is a Bachelor of Science in applied Computer Science and a great web developer and designer. Dennis “Medivhus” Nikrandt is a full stack dev with knowledge in almost all commonly used coding languages.
Together we have yet to find a project or request we couldn’t complete to make our customers happy. In recent years we have focused on the content creation market around Twitch.tv.
Because of this a lot of our projects are linked to streamers on this platform.
This website is also of our own making, it is a dedicated server hosted wordpress page with our own design and custom php/js code to allow functions like our captions system.
As people like to say time is money we would like to give you a summary of all our used skills upfront, if this then piques your interest you can read about the specific projects, their size, and status below.
As briefly mentioned before we have to work with 3rd party API’s a lot, be it Twitter, Twitch, Discord, Stripe, Patreon, Gumroad, PayPal or another known company. Since we have gathered a lot of experience in this area it usually doesn’t take us long to read into new API’s and start using those for our projects.
For some of our not content-related projects, we had to learn and use skills in the area of video editing, picture optimization, search engine optimization and copywriting.
Octane City System
There are a lot of communities that are centered around gaming and Twitch. One of these communities is Octane City, a global group of streamers and gamers who share a passion.
Before we started working with Streamlabs we were working on a standalone all in one Twitch bot, it covered anything from alerts to an “iron man like” client (video above). This project had a java core on a server, a MySQL database for user data and used a PHP focused web end as well as the Twitch API to enable all of these features. The project got stopped and shelved when we joined as 3rd party developers on Streamlabs.
The Hypemeter is one of our tools that was custom designed for a single streamer and later adapted into a standalone C# tool.
The tool allows the streamer to set parameters for a graphic and chat connection, enabling a timed event in which viewers have to write X lines in a certain time to succeed at filling the meter.
The gif shown is from a clip of FrankThePegasus, a partnered Twitch Streamer, you can find a quote from here about our work on this on the homepage.
Driving School Virtual Reality
Fairly early on in our activity as freelancers, we were approached by a local driving school to create a full driving virtual reality mobile app. While the prototype was in working condition and taught us a lot about video editing and VR work, the owner sadly underestimated the costs/time that would go into a project like this and it got stopped because of that.
Much like the Hypemeter the Bitcup is a custom tool created for a single streamer. It turns the only chat based Bit Cheers on Twitch into a visually appealing display which has real physics, animations and sound included in it.
A few years ago a service called Revlo Bot was very widespread on Twitch. It allowed people to set up a point/reward system to enable their viewers to unlock things in their streams. Because this was based on a bad business model and failed to monetize properly we created an alternative. Our service never picked up as already bigger players (like Streamlabs, who we are working with now) also moved into the space.
Overall this was a bot based on a C# core with a PHP/HTML web end which also used the Twitch API to connect to user chats.
