Battle Royale in Real-Life: Anonymous millionaire organizes real tournament on a private island

FortniteFans and PUBG- Pros watch out: An anonymous millionaire invites 100 people to a real Battle Royale tournament on a private island. The "Last Man Standing" does not get a chicken dinner, but 100,000 pounds. What sounds like the beginning of a horror film is an actually planned event.

The participants should live on the private island for three days and participate in the tournament for 12 hours a day. There should be enough food and camping equipment on site so that everyone can camp comfortably at night.

Don't worry: there won't be any injuries at the end of the event - at least that's the plan. Nobody has to get their hands dirty as the participants are only armed with airsoft pistols and wear suitable clothes.

Who came up with this idea and who is implementing it?

Find a game developer on the website for the luxury rich to help plan the event. Aaron Harpin, founder of HushHush.com, reveals more details in his statement:

"Battle Royale games have become incredibly popular over the past few years and our customer is a huge fan who wants to make the game a reality as safely as possible. If the tournament is a success this year, he wants to make it an annual event. That would be very exciting!

If you're a fan of last person standing movies and video games, this will be a great way to get around to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and earn a lot of money. But to do that, our concierge team needs a game developer to help us make the event as realistic as possible. "

The idea itself may be strange, but the question of a game developer in particular sounds abstract. After all, the battle royale concept existed long before video games took over the genre. How a developer could contribute to the realization of the event remains a mystery for now.
