Playing jump scare video games isn't for the faint hearted, but makes for quality entertainment on live stream as Summit1G proves after his step dad set him up for a perfectly timed prank.
Outlast 2 is a first person 'survival-horror' game, which came out early 2017. It is lauded for being incredibly immersive and frightening in equal measure, with the evil creatures that lurk sneaking up on you at every turn.
Upon release, it took over live streaming website Twitch, with many of the most popular streamers broadcasting the game and viewers almost playing along with them.
It is easy to see why these kind of games make for such good entertainment to watch as well as actually play yourself, and so summit1g decided to give it another go on a recent stream.
Summit1g, real name Jaryd Lazar is in the very upper tiers of Twitch streamers, with over three million followers making him the 5th most followed channel.
As a former CS:GO player, he is known for being a skilled player as well as an entertainer, but nothing can prepare you for the trials of Outlast 2 - and certainly not for your step dad creeping up on you in the dark.
With the lights off, Summit1g was going for the most immersive experience possible, making a perfect opportunity for his step dad to catch him with his guard down and in a tense moment of the game.
Maybe in future summit1g might lock his door before jumping back in to the thriller game, which is known to elicit these kind of reactions all by itself.
While he recovered however, his step dad took over and it must be said he wasn't too shabby a gamer himself - and also wasn't convinced by how scare it is either.
You can watch summit1g stream almost daily via his Twitch Channel, although we wouldn't count on too many Outlast 2 streams in the future.
