TWITCH STREAMER ENDS BROADCAST AFTER VR ACCIDENT: “I BROKE MY MOUTH”

WHAT HAPPENED?

In the game, Mekise was placed in a sort of escape room, where he had to find a key to get away from a robot nemesis.

In trying to find the key, Mekise bent down to pick it up — and ended up smashing his mouth on his fireplace mantel.

The streamer left his office to tend to his wounds before coming back on camera, making sure to let viewers know that he was okay, but that he’d definitely taken a beating.

“”

It’s crazy! I destroyed myself! I’m good, I’m just bleeding. Oh my god! It hurts. It’s because I’m an idiot. I should have just taken it a little slower, but I wanted to get out of there!

This is far from the first time that VR games have had real-world consequences — in 2019, one streamer ran head-first into a brick wall.
