6,000 Video Game Deaths, Visualized As A Christmas Tree

6,000 Video Game Deaths, Visualized as a Christmas Tree

'Tis the season to die horribly in the snow while not wearing any pants.

The developer of The Legend of Equip Pants, a quirky retro-styled episodic adventure game, just released their latest holiday-themed episode, titled Panta Claus. Mind you, this is the first episode to ever feature player death in the game.

The map itself was designed in the shape of a Christmas tree, which, after the developer gathered some player data for an animation, resulted in the creation of perhaps one of the most morbid Christmas trees ever. Observe:

The green lines you see are the paths players took across the level during 2,000 individual playthroughs, while the flashing red orbs represent player deaths -- a total of 6,000, an average of 3 per playthrough. The vibraphone rendition of "O Christmas Tree" in the background gives this one a delightfully creepy... vibe.
