The video game gives us a pair of glasses with which we can feel immersed in the fun. The game has very simple modes such as attending a cafeteria, to games where you have to walk on narrow places at a great height.
In the game, you have to cross a small board that is 100 stories high. Everything was going well until Eugenio fell off the board and as he commented in an Instagram video “To my brain it didn't match what I was seeing with what was happening”. Which led to an accident that left him with 15 fractures in his right arm.

Causing the actor to fall down the stairs of his house, billing his right shoulder and elbow, leaving him with such a serious injury that he would need 6 months to a year of therapy and might not fully recover his mobility. We can only wait to see how the actor improves and hope for a speedy recovery.
