There are only two kinds of people of that you normally find on Chatroulette – bored randoms or half naked dudes doing things that might well affect their vision in the future. It’s very rare you actually stumble across anything cool. And there’s not much cooler than the chance to help fight a zombie apocalypse!
But that’s exactly what the Chatrouletters and Omeglers in this video were given. British-based studio Realm Pictures mocked up an end of the world scenario, giving them control over the first person shooter on their screen. An actor with a videocamera on his head was navigating a scary graveyard infested with the undead and the shocked players had to help him defeat them and stay alive!
It’s a crazy idea but it was just crazy enough to work! And it looks like a whole lot of fun. We’d love a chance to play a game like this. Instead of watching sweaty men without their pants on…
If you thought that was cool, check out the ‘behind the scenes’ documentary that the studio also made:
