IRL Shooter is a world first, team based, horror survival, combat simulation experience.
Born from our love of horror genre videogames, movies & graphic novels, we have set out to recreate the best this genre has to offer, in a real life, fully immersive game experience. Imagine yourself and your friends as paid mercenaries in an environment that combines film industry quality sets and production values, with interactive theatre performers, a deep and engaging narrative and a videogame gameplay. With guns. Lot’s of guns. That is IRL Shooter.
You don’t just play our games, you live them.
Our first game, Patient 0, ran in Melbourne in late 2012, early 2013 & entertained over 6200 players. We listened to the player feedback and have taken the time since then to improve every aspect of our game, to finally be ready to bring you our new title – Lazarus.

- Survived the zombie apocalypse!! Thanks to the team at@IRLShooter for an amazing day! Scary but heaps of fun! Take along a group who work well as a team and who will take it seriously for maximum good times! It was definitely the talking point of my holidays and now in the GG office as well

- It's like playing the best video game ever, but you are actually carrying around a bigass gun and having ten types of crap scared out of you every dark corner you turn around

- This is as real as being inside a videogame or zombie movie most of us will get. Think of the most scared you've ever been and double it

- I know it's just a game but my disbelief was suspended the instant my staff sergeant barked ''Are you ready to kill?'' inches from my face.
