YouTube’s First Interactive Original Takes Users on a Choose-Your-Own Adventure Museum Heist

"Heist" is an ambitious action/adventure undertaking with 31 different possible endings involving—you guessed it—a museum heist.

YouTube has released its first interactive original video, starring its popular gaming personality Markiplier.

Inspired by 2017’s “A Date with Markiplier,” an interactive short that allowed users to control what happens while on a first-person POV date, “Heist” is an ambitious action/adventure undertaking with 31 different possible endings involving–you guessed it–a museum heist.

“We wanted that intimate feeling, the feeling like you were right there with me,” Markiplier tells Tubefilter about shooting it in first-person again. “I wanted it to be smooth, like an almost on-the-rails type feel to it. We landed on using a nice cinema camera.”

The production used a RED Gemini mounted on a stabilizing ready rig. Read more here on Tubefilter.
