The correct answer is, “Yes, Maniac, I would, for I have come to love Strawberry Painkiller nearly as much as you do.” Well done!
Yes, I love Strawberry Painkiller, and while the project doesn’t get out as much material for public consumption as one might hope, there are thankfully fans who can help to bridge the gap. In this case, this YouTuber very helpfully (and inexplicably — seriously, how?) shot and uploaded a pair of 360-degree videos from a live about a month back:

I’ll be honest: I think VR, until it’s scaled up to something more akin to the Holodeck, is kind of hokey. I also need less “virtual” and more “awesome” in my reality. For this, though, I’d make an exception.

Well, my mind’s officially fucking blown for the day. How about yours? And how many iterations of that game are there? I’ve still only done it once. Does it always end the same way? Is it possible to find a path that results in your being physically absorbed into the screen and, while now physically dead, you get to live on forever as a digital-only member of YMM? (That’s the paradise part, I think.)
