While it could only manage 999 players at once, the chaotic gameplay probably wouldn’t be effected much by the addition of a one more player.
You say it looks like madness, but if you really think about it, shouldn’t shooter games look like this? Imagine being in World War I or any full-on war; you’re up against a whole bunch of other people and there’s no order whatsoever.

Of course, you have the abilities to re-spawn and battle some tricked-out robots, but that just adds to the fun.
PikkoServer, the creators of the wicked technology behind this singular experiment, says, “Our goal now is to make this technology available to developers worldwide.”
Would you play with 999 other people?
