Spectator-Player: What Games Have This?

Discuss new games or share memories of old

I recall at least one or two games that have come out in the past year or so that have the spectator-player, or what I fondly call the Non-Player Player (NPP). The basic idea is the spectator can passively or actively influence the game being currently played by a single or multiple active players. But for the life of me I can't find any references to these games-- anyone have an idea of what they may be called? There was one that appeared to be a sports-like team-based game. Players spectating would enter a command in the chat and it would add an effect on the playing field. I'm wanting to read up more on these games to see how they implemented their features. Maybe future games could have social media influence-- an active feed on Twitter could directly influence gameplay or a Twitch chat session could affect the playing field.

This wasn't it but I found it to be a very novel concept. I happened upon this one by accident while looking for methods of linking a Twitch IRC stream.
