Death Stranding is, primarily, a game about walking. Sam Porter Bridges puts his body through hell by walking across America and trying to connect us all. Now, thanks to YouTube creator and freelance engineer Allen Pan, you too can physically experience Sam’s hellish trek across the United States. Pan removed the left joystick from the PlayStation 4 controller, hooked up Death Stranding to a defunct treadmill, and made the game as realistic as possible. When he walked, Sam walked. Turns out sojourning across America is a tiring nightmare.
