For everyone who has been following Joel’s decent into madness this December – prophesying the end times through interviews, tweets and videos – it is probably not surprising to hear that today, after 11:11 UTC has come and gone on December 21st, he is a very happy man. In his third and final ‘End of Days’ video log we follow him into the bunker where he does one or two things that probably warrants a ‘viewer discretion’ advisory, before learning from Funcom’s CEO that the world is still standing and that everything he believed in was all a hoax.
Still, Joel is a very happy man. Despite being a nail-biting month for him, it sure has been an incredibly exciting one as well. The Secret World opened up for a bigger audience by removing the subscription requirement, the fifth major content update for The Secret World was released chock full of amazing content, and tens of thousands of gamers from all over the world has been taking part in Funcom’s unique ‘End of Days’ alternate reality game.
Today he celebrates on Twitch.tv, with an in-game livestream where he will interact with players, answer their questions and simply enjoying the fact that he is still breathing digital air. The stream started at 1pm EST / 10am PST on Funcom’s Twitch.TV channel.
