A job posting recently appeared on HushHush.com, which describes itself as the world’s leading luxury shopping marketplace, looking for a “talented gamemaker” that can help design a real-life battle royale game inspired from games like Fortnite and Apex Legends.
The description on the post says
We’re looking for someone who can help design the arena for a 100-person battle royale inspired event. With a £1,500 day rate and an expected six-week project duration, we’re expecting the competition to be fierce for the £45,000 contract!
This real-life game is taking inspiration from various Battle Royale games such as Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends that have been massively successful. One can argue that they have affected the entire videogame industry as a whole. The website also mentions that the person trying to turn this idea into a reality is an unnamed millionaire who is a huge fan of battle royale games. The idea of real-life Battle Royale-themed last man standing tournament definitely sounds good from a business standpoint.
HushHush also says:
Battle royale games have become incredibly popular over the last few years ago and our customer is a huge fan who wants to make the game a reality in the safest way possible. If the championship is a success this year, it’s something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting!
Of course, similar tournaments like Fear Factor have existed for decades now. The website emphasizes safety. It is possible that the game could last 12-hour chunks with airsoft rifles and touch-sensitive body armor. Things like looting, camping, and using survival tactics could also be a major focus of the game.
If you’re a fan of last-person-standing movies and games, it’ll be a great opportunity to have a once in a lifetime experience and earn a significant amount of money. However, to get there, our concierge team needs some help to make it a reality. The first thing we need is a talented gamemaker to help us make the event as realistic as possible.
The project pays £1,500 daily and is estimated to last about six weeks with a total payout of £45,000.
This could open a gateway for a new style of entertainment in the future and even be turned into a TV show. It definitely sounds interesting for Battle Royale fans who want to take it to the next level but if you’d rather play your Battle Royal games in the digital world, check out the latest Apex Legends 1.1 Update or Fortnite, which apparently Prince Harry says should be banned.
