The entire world has been left in utter shock after details emerged of an online game that targets teen and pushes them to take their lives
According to reports, when a player signs up for the game, they are assigned an administrator who provides them with a daily task to complete for 50 days. They are required to send photographic proof of each completed task. The game which is said to have originated from Russia is responsible for the suicides of over 100 teens. This is appalling to say the least.
Just last week details emerged of how a 16-year-old boy committed suicide in his Kamukunji house after playing the said game. This left the entire nation in utter shock, with most left wondering what is becoming of the world.
The game starts in the creepiest way possible.
“I want to play the game. Are you sure? There’s no way back.” Then you are in!
That is how the game begins. It has teens completing a number of tasks over a 50-day period, the last one being to kill yourself. This is the newest twist to suicide pacts that are being shared among vulnerable teens online.
We have exclusively gathered details on these tasks that are performed during the course of 50 days. See the list below. Please note that some of the items may disturbing to some.
