Let’s Play: The Culling

I’m a Running Man having a Battle Royale! I’ve got no time for Hunger Games!


In my first ever Let’s Play, I take on the closed alpha build of The Culling: a first person survival game where contestants must battle to the death in the style of The Hunger Games. By the time I got the recording going, I only had a mere four hours before the closed alpha disappeared from my Steam Library entirely, so getting the footage I needed was a race against time! Can I figure out the magical crafting system and make a medkit out of two sticks? Can I find my Jennifer Lawrence to help me to victory? Can I beat the odds and survive The Culling? Will I die in a variety of excruciating and hilarious ways? Find out by watching the videos below!


Part One: Training

Part Two: Dying Horribly

Part Three: Final Battle


Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
