Ok, so I think we’ve established Fallout 76 hasn’t been the most successful from a critical perspective – but one thing that’s kept me absolutely fascinated by the game is its community, who keep coming up with inventive (or illicit) new ways to play the game.
One of the most flamboyant creators is Vault101manguy – a Canadian called Mike who we previously interviewed about his Deathclaw maze, player oven and murder church. This time he’s made something far, far worse: a trap room where players are forced to do maths – or die. It’s all very Fallout.
In order to fool players, Mike first constructed a convincing school complete with lockers, desks, bookshelves, and even small details like “page nine math homework due on Monday” written on a blackboard. On the outside it resembles a traditional American school: but should unfortunate wastelanders step inside the “tutoring room”, they’ll get more than they bargained for.
