Battle royale in real life funded by millionaire backer

Lucky for everyone, the Battle Royale weaponry will be compiled of Airsoft guns and ammo, with touch-sensitive body armor. Apparently, an unnamed millionaire wants to have a real-life battle royale play out on a private island, and is ready to put in the money that may be required to make it happen. That's exactly what one mysterious millionaire is doing, and they need a gaming fan to help realise their vision. The last man standing will walk away with £100,000 prize and bragging rights. Most likely this is going to finish up with 100 individuals left on an island for three days with no sustenance and only a huge amount of Airsoft weapons for organization?

A luxury product marketplace dubbed the "Amazon for millionaires" is helping to recruit a gaming fanatic to create a battle royale-inspired arena event, after a customer enquired about buying an island for a championship through the site. They'll get food and camping equipment, and will presumably be allowed to move about freely during the 12-hour detente.

I'm seriously hoping we've stumbled upon the early planning stages of a charity event, because otherwise this just seems kind of pointless and self-indulgent.

'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!' Harpin adds, "If the championship is a success this year, it's something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting".

Would-be gamemakers, who should have experience in large-scale event and set design, will need to apply by 22 April, with successful applicants notified by 10 May.

'However, to get there, our concierge team needs some help to make it a reality. I've seen this compared to the Hunger Games, but hell, at least the Hunger Games had a objective - demoralizing a massive labor class, yes, but that's still a goal. They are looking for a talented gamemaker who can help organize the three-day event.
