If you have seen the movie “Nerve” then you probably know how dangerous and horrible truth-or-dare games are.
A new game, “Momo” alarmed parents and authorities of the danger it may cause on teenagers.
Suicide game Momo encourages teens to do horrible challenges.
The challenge usually starts when a person adds or sends a message to a contact on their social media accounts. These include Faceboo, YouTube, and WhatsApp messenger. Soon after, a horrifying photo of a woman with a huge pair of eyes and chicken feet will be sent.
Reports say that Japanese special effects company Link Factory made this terrifying figure. The disturbing photo being spread was reportedly taken from an Instagram account after it became viral.
According to reports, once contacted, Momo will then threaten users that will not respond to their repeated messages. The game challenges its users to communicate with an unknown number.
In addition, users are threatened with their personal information or disturbing photos that will force the challenger to do what Momo says.
According to reports, the game was associated with the death of a 12-year-old girl who committed suicide in Argentina.
Investigation regarding the suicide of the young girl as well as the 18-year old teenager who shared the game with the victim are still on going.
This is not the first time that a suicide game has been linked to a death of a teenager. An application called Blue Whale, has been associated with the death of 130 teens according to news website The Sun.
