If you love playing first person shooter (FPS) games, you’re going to love this concept: a studio has set up its very own live-action first person shooter – WITH ZOMBIES! – which they let random strangers on the internet take control of via Skype, Chatroulette and other internet chat programs.

All people have to do is tell the actor, who has a camera attached to his head, what to do. Their task? Guide him out of a shed and through a zombie-infested garden, collecting weapons and supplies and fighting his way through to a boss creature by simply giving him instructions.

The result is a fun nine-minute video, which you can see below:

Right after the video is a behind-the-scenes look at how it was made, in which you’ll meet the folks over at RealmPictures.

This is a very rare beast: a clever idea that’s well executed and a true pleasure to watch. Well done, everyone involved!

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
