This Happens When You Mix Real Life With FPS Games and Take It to Chatroulette

We all love our video games, whatever type they might be. They are fun to play while they relax or challenge us. But what happens if you take that game into real life? The UK-based production team RealmPictures must have asked themselves the same question as that is just what they did.

The team created a live action first-person shooter in their garden and invited unsuspecting people online to take control. The best platform to do so is Chatroulette and the result is amazing. The team works by the slogan: “We make all sorts of things, but our passion is for narrative fiction and cinematic storytelling. They took that and created one of the most awesome things I’ve seen in recent times.

Whether this is a clever marketing gag to get the company name out thanks to a viral video or they just thought it was an amazing idea to do this. The result is amazing and I highly recommend to watch as unsuspecting video chatters get to control the character in this Zombie invasion game. They have to find weapons and hidden objects in order to make it through the first level.

I really don’t want to spoil too much of the video by telling you what happens, it is something that just has to be seen yourself. So enjoy these 9 minutes of real-life first person shooter video.

Ubisoft Developers Real Live Watch Goat Sacrifice for Far Cry 4 Research

It looks like the Far Cry 4 title aims to be fitted with as much real-life experience as possible. Two Ubisoft developers are said to have journeyed to Nepal in order to get inspiration for Kyrat, the fictional Himalayan setting for the game.

Mark Thompson, the game’s narrative director, and Phil Fournier, the associate producer, made the journey with Vice Media’s Krishna Andavolu to Kathmadu. Once there, they apparently heard a rumor that there was an animal sacrifice about to happen and went to find the ‘event’. The sacrifice is said to have been made by a man who was performing it on behalf of his family to Kali, the Hindu goddess of change and destruction.

The video is said to be the first of a three-part series aimed at gathering source material and inspiration for Far Cry 4. Alex Hutchinson, the creative director, said that another Vice documentary entitled “The Vice Guide to Liberia” acted as another inspiration, this one for the game’s deranged villain, Pagan Min. In it, “General Butt Naked”‘s (Liberia’s Joshua Milton Blahyi) name was constantly present in the African nation torn apart by civil war in the ’90s. The name given to Blahyi came from making his army fight nude.

“It was this idea that there were these extreme characters who, in their universe, they seem sane,” Hutchinson said, “but if you take them out of context, and put them in our world, they seem very insane.”
