Sometimes things just don’t go as planned. The folks behind Super Lucky’s Tale found this out the hard way when they recently tried a lifestream of the game but it failed miserably.
We figured it out. You have to disable "game mode" in Windows 10 Game DVR.

Playful was apparently trying to stream the game as part of a promotion but forgot to disable game mode in the Windows 10 Game DVR. This resulted in a lot of lag, basically making the game look unplayable to those watching on Mixer. A fan even suggested for the team to input their graphics card into settings, but that apparently was not the problem.
To say the least, Playful was… playful… with the failure. The developer Tweeted out apologies to everyone who may have watched
Our deepest apologies to everyone who tuned in today. We've brought shame upon ourselves and upon all carbon-based life forms.

It’s just one small technical problem that otherwise overshadowed a perfectly adorable and fun game (which this writer just so happened to really enjoy playing.)Further reading: Game DVR, Game Mode, Microsoft, Super Lucky's Tale, Windows 10, Xbox One
