She plummets to the endless depths below.
Can a game force itself to be a streaming sensation by design? #KILLALLZOMBIES aims to find out by taking an otherwise unremarkable dual-stick shooter and allowing Twitch commenters to alter the player’s experience via chat. I'm sure that will end well.

Dateline: Fartsburg. Mayor DoubtingThomas is about to deliver his first State of the City speech.
