'Ice cream so good...yes, yes, yes...oooo, gang, gang.' The latest non-playable characters (NPCs) livestreaming trend is seeing some TikTokers speaking behaving robotically. Why are they acting this way?

Singapore News, Singapore Headlines

Known as ‘NPC streaming’, TikTok creators are pretending to be non-playable characters (NPCs) as seen in video games.

The bizarre trend involves TikTokers livestreaming themselves while repeating certain catchphrases or movements in a robotic and animated manner, imitating NPCs. For instance, sending a tip and leaving an ice cream cone icon would prompt 27-year-old content creator Pinkydoll or Ms Fedha Sinon to say “ice cream so good” or pretend to lick the ice cream on command.

Users can spend money on virtual coins which can then be used to buy various icons during the livestreams. When users buy an icon, the symbols appear on screen as a visual acknowledgment of the tip to which the creators typically react to.
