Bored Millionaire Funds RealLife Private Island Battle Royale

first_img I say this a lot these days but some people are just begging to have their wealth redistributed. It’s true! Some rich people are clearly so bored and wasteful with their incalculable amount of money that they are practically asking for it to be snatched away and given to those less fortunate. How else would you explain the fact that right now someone with too much cash is currently trying to fund an actual battle royale tournament?On a site called Hush Hush, with the exceptionally sinister tagline of “the world’s leading luxury shopping marketplace,” an anonymous user is currently seeking designers for a full-on battle royale event on a private island, and is willing to pay £45,000 to make it happen. Presumably, the designer would spend six weeks adding fun sets and props and arenas to the natural environment in order to make the game feel like the more whimsical Fortnite or the paintball-esque PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.But make no mistake, a battle royale in the real world reveals the bloodsport nature inherent in the genre’s premise that no amount of loot boxes or flossing emotes can gloss over. Go back and watch Battle Royale (the movie) and see what I mean.With battle royale games being so popular though we doubt this project, if it’s even real and ever actually comes to fruition, will have that much trouble finding help as well as contestants. It promises a three-day gauntlet (with food and camping gear) where entrants shoot each other with Airsoft guns while wearing touch-sensitive body armor. Sounds like you won’t be jumping out of a plane though. The sole winner will earn £100,000.If that sounds good to you, head over to Hush Hush to help make it happen. In the meantime, I’m going to go read “The Most Dangerous Game” again.
