How does Blue Whale Online Suicide Game Work?
The Blue Whale game is a series of challenges given to teenagers by unknown strangers. The group asks for photographic proof from the teenagers who have accepted this challenge for each task given to them. It is thought that these tasks are carried out for 50 days and on the 50th day the masterminds ask the child to commit suicide.
The previous tasks are carefully plotted throughout, they start with something small like cutting a Blue Whale on your arm, watching torture and horror movies, waking up in the middle of the night at random hours to make the child sleep deprive. Slowly and gradually these tasks become more violent and brutal tasks which then manipulate the child who is the victim of their plan.
