When someone says Chatroulette I’m sure other things might come to mind other than a first person shooter. If anyone has ever been to the website you will know it’s mostly filled with some very strange people and lots of dicks. Well recently these Chatroulette users came across something a little different, an amazing real life, live-streaming, first person shooter.
This Doom-style FPS featured zombies, a creepy graveyard, and different types of weapons you could find along the way. In order to play the user had to talk the hero character through different scenes, giving different commands like “run away, throw a grenade, check what’s in that pot!”.
The game was replete with some awesome sound effects, nicely made guns, and blood! Some of the Chatroulette users caught on very quickly and had some pretty funny responses to being put in this situation. We can only imagine how many dicks they had sift through before they found some people to actually play along though, and we comend Realm Pictures for their efforts.
Shortly after the video was released, Realm Pictures released a behind the scenes video, which to my surprise, it only took them around £900 (roughly $1,450) to make the video. The main actor who you play as in the game is really wearing a motorcycle helmet with a GoPro camera attached with a light and Teradek HDMI transmitter to make this all happen.
This was such a unique and creative idea, and it was executed perfectly by their team. After seeing it last night on Reddit shortly after it’s release it had 15k views. Once I woke up this morning and checked it again it’s already at 1.4 million views in less than 24 hours!!
