The production team over at The Attack is on a quest to create the “hardest game of Dark Souls ever,” so they made a controller by wiring conductive chairs to a computer. Each chair is assigned to one of eight players, who holds onto a ground wire and then sits down to complete a circuit. Basically, you can cover metal chairs in foil and then sit on them to “push a button.”
Their concerning mountain of tinfoil and wires complete, the team got to work facing off against Dark Souls III’s first boss. One button for each butt, with a ninth player controlling the camera and giving direction. The results are about what you’d expect — a mess of squatting fury:
They never do beat the boss, though eventually manage to get the enemy down to one third of its health, one sit at a time. You can check out more of The Attack live on Twitch every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 4pm PT.
