By connecting with Twitch through the game’s official website, players can purchase access Vlambeer’s upcoming action roguelike Nuclear Throne’s Steam Early Access build, the developer announced.

This makes Nuclear Throne the first game purchasable through the game-centric streaming service.

According to Vlambeer, 60 percent of Twitch-based purchase profits will go directly to them. In addition to access to the Steam build, players who purchase Nuclear Throne through Twitch will also get special Vlambeer emoticons and a subscription to the company’s Twitch channel, which provides a look at the development process every Tuesday and Thursday for subscribers.

Nuclear Throne is slated to launch on Windows PC sometime this year. During PAX East 2014 this past weekend, Vlambeer revealed they had incorporated two-player co-op into the game.
