We’ve been hearing a lot about the Blue Whale game, 50 tasks, and its victims. We’ve heard how the game originated from Russia where the main aim of its inventor was to make depressed people get rid of their misery. Some of the tasks include waking up in middle of the night and watching a scary movie, standing on the edge of the cliff or rooftops, play frequently with blades such as cutting yourself, writing letters on your body and updating statuses on Social Media platforms stating ‘#I_am_whale’.
Once you go deep into the game, the cyberbullying, blackmailing becomes stronger by the game moderator. During this game, the player gets a death date and by task 50, the player is prepped for suicide and game says ‘End’ on the 50th day.
To tackle this nuisance, a Pakistani teenager Waseem Gul has taken the matter into his own hands and launched an Anti-Bluewhale game. This game instead of being a bully or suicidal, encourages positive action. The appearance of this game is very similar to Bluewhale yet this game has easy, positive, fun and unharmful tasks. Few of these tasks include waking up at 6 am, doing 10 pushups, helping parents in housework, feeding a poor person or helping a sibling in their work. Some silly tasks also include having a whole spoon bite of ketchup or slicing an onion and trying not to cry.
Anti-Bluewhale is uploaded on Media Fire by Waseem Gul & can be accessed by anyone in the world for free.
At the 50th task, you get a positive message saying ‘Congratulations you have become a Smart BlueWhale. Remember your life is a precious gift don’t waste it on strange challenges you find on the internet. The world is full of strange people, some of them will try to scare you in order to make you do odd things, if something like this happens to you, inform your parents or adults that you trust. Stay healthy and happy blue whale grandmaster’.
His basic motive was to motivate people to bring positivity in their lives & be productive rather than using an application to waste their precious life!
