According to a request on luxury marketplace Hush Hush, the user is looking for a games maker to help turn this pop-cultural phenomenon into a reality. Before you start freaking out, this Battle Royale game would not involve actual killing. Contestants will compete using Airsoft guns, which will then be detected by a touch-sensitive armor. The anonymous millionaire is planning to hold the competition for 12 hours a day set over three days until one person remains. Food, camping gear, and all other necessary equipment for the Battle Royale event would be provided.

So far, planning for the event is still underway, but according to the listing, the winner could walk away with nearly USD 130,650, while the chosen games maker will take in $1,960 per day for six weeks to create the event.

Battle Royale games have become incredibly popular over the last few years ago, and our customer is a huge fan who wants to make the game a reality in the safest way possible,” says Hush Hush’s founder Aaron Harpin on the request page. “If the championship is a success this year, it’s something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting!”
