Ninja soared to the top in his very first Only Up! run.

Developed by SCKR Games, Only Up! has been a sensation on Twitch since its release, even despite a minor hiccup when it was temporarily pulled from Steam over a copyright dispute. The game quickly returned and has consistently drawn in the crowds, garnering a peak viewership of 163,665 on July 3, per Twitch Tracker.

The game challenges players’ patience to the extreme. With no checkpoints, a single misstep can send the player tumbling back to the starting point. However, the reward is a breathtaking journey through exotic locales and cultural settings. And for those with an eagle eye, there are easter eggs that blend pop culture references into the game.
