Peter Lu: Roulette

WARNING: This game contains graphic images so please don't download if this isn't your cup of tea. Roulette is an experimental and disturbing game created by Peter Lu. I cannot stress enough that if you feel that the game will have a negative effect on you, then steer clear. This is a one button game where you'll find yourself sitting in a table from your opponent playing Russian roulette - you and your opponent take turns firing a gun at your head. The empty room makes the game even creepier than you might expect. Again, only give it a go if you think you have the stomach for it. This is a one button game where you'll find yourself sitting in a table from your opponent playing Russian roulette. Basically, the game is pretty simple, you and your opponent take turns firing a gun at your head. You may sit there thinking, the game is rather empty with just you two, and actually it is. However, that's what makes it creepier. The fact that it's just you and your digitized opponent playing a game of chance. Again, only give it a go if you think you have the stomach for it.
