I’m a streamer, is there an optimal place on screen for my camera?

What are the minimum specs?

Why create Drive Buy?
Drive Buy is a new kind of vehicle combat game that builds on the history of the genre.
With combat mechanics layered on top of a primary mechanic of serving customers in
exchange for in-game credits, it offers a fresh take on the genre.
When does Drive Buy come out?
Drive Buy will be available as an early access title on Steam soon.
We are expecting to release the full game later in the year.
Tell me more about Drive Buy?
Drive Buy is a fast-paced online vehicle combat game. The game is set in a Dystopian world.
The people are being brainwashed by the BUY CORP hypnotic signal. You have to race against other players (could be friends) and sell the most products to the brainwashed masses.
You can outrun your rivals, destroy them with power-ups and steal their credits, jostling for a #1 place on the leaderboard.
Imagine the game is like Mario Kart Battle meets Black Mirror.
What modes are available?
There is currently 1 game mode: Sell with variations over how many players are meant to sell. More will be added over time.
How long is a game?
Game sessions last between 3 and 8 minutes
Who is the boss guy?
The boss guy controls the blimp and takes the profit from your activities.
Can you tell me about the story, if there is one?
The story is fairly open, but you all work for BUY CORP and your boss is riding around in a giant blimp above the city that’s dropping out product stock for you to sell. The blimp is also where the hypnotic signal is coming from that makes all the screens change to the pulsing circles. That’s all we’re willing to say at the moment.
What’s the main objective?
The main objective is to sell products to people. The people are hypnotised by giant screens, in that state, they will buy anything.
What is the setting of Drive Buy?
The setting of Drive Buy is in a dystopian future featuring urban city environments. Expect to see large glossy skyscrapers in the financial district to large disused warehouses down in the port. Almost all the buildings in Drive Buy are adorned with screens and littered with anti-hypnotic graffiti.
Is this a multiplayer game?
Yes, this is an online multiplayer game.
How many players are there?
There are up to 4-players in a game.
What do I control?
You control a vehicle that’s capable of serving and shooting. Driving is arcade-like with a focus on highly enjoyable slides and fast steering manoeuvres to dodge bullets and get around tight corners.
