As we have previously reported, the legendary Doom game was suddenly destroyed by mice when a Youtuber and neuroscientist named Viktor Tóth created a complex machine that can help mice play the game. Doom 2.
Accordingly, the mouse will be hung on a polystyrene ball, wear a tiny sweater and run on the ball to activate sensors that help move the character in Doom 2. In addition, there is another machine right there. in front of the mouse to help him shoot guns in Doom 2 as well as reward the mouse with food and water while playing. Finally, a giant curved screen for the mouse to recognize and play Doom 2.
After the article was published and shared in many gaming newspapers around the world, Viktor Tóth and his mice suddenly became famous because everyone was curious about the rodent animal. How will you play the game Doom? In a recent interview with news site Futurism, Tóth was asked if he considers the current livestreaming platform as a way to cash in on the sudden popularity of his mice.
“Yes, I think so. I think it’s a very valid way to monetize a project like this,” replied Tóth. “The only problem is how long the mouse can play.”
Humans can livestream continuously because we find the games extremely attractive, but that is completely different for mice and they are not quite up to human standards. One of the mice, named Romero, can play Doom for 15 minutes straight at a time, but that’s clearly a short amount of time when livestreaming.
“If you’re interested and the rats are really going to play for 10 or 20 minutes, then yes. A Twitch live stream would be a very affordable way to showcase this in front of people,” added Tóth.
Tóth also said he plans to expand beyond Doom by training his mice to play VR games. “One of my favorite games is 3D Pac-Man. The rats don’t really like to attack things. They run away from things in the wild. That will be their motivation to play 3D Pac-Man.”
