The May 15 release of video game Diablo III has been met with extreme excitement over the game. But one fan’s obsession turned deadly when he gamed for 40 hours straight.

Only identified as Chuang, the 18-year-old player from Taiwan was found dead after a 40-hour marathon session, reports the Australian Associated Press.

The player reportedly reserved a room at an internet cafe to play the game. A cafe employee found Chuang passed out on a table on Sunday after not sleeping or eating during the entire marathon.

Chuang initially awake, but collapsed after a few steps. He was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

An autopsy is pending, but police believe that the long period of time sitting still could have created fatal blood clots.
