There might not be a lot for lecturers to do to get their college students from playing throughout class, past accumulating and banning iPhones from their lecture rooms — however at the very least Epic Games is doing its half to assist, even a tiny bit, as seen in Battle Royale’s newest replace.
A loading display screen for the cell model options this textual content proper beneath that colourful llama: “Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class.” Who’s Mr. Hillman? He’s a trainer, Reddit consumer and Fortnite fan, who took to the sport’s discussion board this week to ask the developer for assist.
“First, I really like your sport,” Hillman wrote on the Battle Royale discussion board. (The submit has since been deleted, as customers warned him towards attaching his precise identify to his Reddit account.) “My mates from school and I play just about each evening. One downside, since cell got here out my college students gained’t stop playing in class. Idk if it’s doable, however I instructed them I’d write you and so they didn’t consider me. Could you add this to the loading display screen for a pair days to mess with them? ‘Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class.’”
Well, Epic Games was paying consideration — the studio is tremendous lively in the Fortnite Reddit group — and now the sport says precisely that while you load it up.
Whether or not that’s really going to be efficient in getting youngsters to stop secretly playing beneath their desks … all I can say is that I want Mr. Hillman luck.
