Internet users get to play the world’s first real life first-person shooter game on Chatroulette
It cant get any livelier then this. A British independent film company, Realm Pictures unveiled on Thursday a short video of its elaborate, unique project: a homemade, real-life first-person shooter game.
What is more fascinating is that Realm Pictures has given random Internet users the opportunity to play this game. The players were chosen from Chatroulette, Omegle, and Skype to participate in this real life adventure game. The players could control a real guy with a camera strapped to his head and fight their way through a zombies in a live-action first-person shooter.
The project is quite elaborate, Real Pictures used special cameras to live stream the game’s ornately built zombie set,
“Rather than just prerecording something that looks like a first-person [shooter game], we thought we’d actually include the most important element there—which is the player,” explains creative director David M Reynolds in a behind-the-scenes video. “We thought, maybe we could take that video and stream it live to strangers on the Internet. Whatever we say, we will then do.”
