A theme has emerged on Joystiq Streams. Revisiting our recent tours through Secret Ponchos, Gods Will Be Watching, and Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept, it would appear that the Joystiq crew plays video games wherein we die a lot. Rather than try to sit back, reassess our skills, and try to not die so much, we have made the extra bold decision to lean into the death.

Nicalis' 1001 Spikes is our destination, a veritable pit of doom, demise, and destruction perfect for our willfully mad approach to playing games live for your entertainment. Old-style pixelized punishment in the grand tradition of La Mulana, Super Meat Boy, and VVVVVV, 1001 Spikes is primed to tear us apart.

Starting at 4PM EST, we'll be streaming 1001 Spikes on Joystiq.com/Twitch. If you've ever wondered what it sounds like when a South African man struggles desperately to not curse like a sailor, you're in for a treat, because Ludwig Kietzmann will be playing. Anthony John Agnello will be hanging out in the chat, whispering your words of encouragement to Ludwig even as we silently laugh at his failures.

Joystiq Streams broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST at Joystiq.com/Twitch, but we often stream other times, so make sure to click that follow button on Twitch to get an alert when we go live.
