Being Under the Influence

Hey guys,

You know that feeling you get when you’re in a party and everyone around you is doing things they shouldn’t be doing, and that are not good for them. Yet, you’re so tempted to try? Then trial becomes a journey, more specifically that would apply to drugs. Unfortunately most of the young generation today have this problem, the peer pressure from the people around them makes people try new things everyday, that they might like or not. Whatever their case is in the future, there is a possibility that an addiction would be the case to that person. We started our game at about 7:00 PM on a night of a party, where you and your friends gather up in the house, plan to pre-drink and spend time together before hitting the floor with some hot moves. If you’d choose a couple of choices in the game, they actually take you to situations where you’ll go to yourself, heck yeah this could happen. Of course for the older folks out there, try to imagine it when you were a couple of years younger. The younger generation can easily imagine such a situation.

It’s not easy to control the drug trafficking thats happening in Egypt, nor the dealing to the kids. What we can do is aware our close ones, and the friends that you see might be doing something suspicious. Trust me, you’d never want to be put in a position to see someone so dear to you become something so destroyed, in pain and maybe even not with us anymore. I’ve seen so many people throughout my life lose everything with one stupid decision that they couldn’t get out of. No matter what I’d say or show, they would never go back to the same person they were before. It’s like their whole mind gets wired to these certain actions and isnt convinced that they’re wrong.

A very important aspect as well of the game, and of being under the influence in general is driving under the influence. If you’re going to drink, or do the drug at least try not to kill yourself in the process of doing so. Okay, I understand we all want to have fun, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be careful in order to live 40 or 50 more years of fun and happiness (sorry, i sounded too optimisitic). I’ve started myself implementing this, one of my friends (my roommate lucky me) is that kinda guy that drinks red-bull’s at parties right, he doesnt drink. He’s always going to be my designated driver and he’s pretty funny too AND he buys me food on the way back. Big shout out to Mr. Orz!

Anyways kids, stay safe if you’re going to be dangerous and try new things. Have a person that’s close to you with you, at all times during the process. Whether it’s a drug or you’re going to be drinking for the first time. Guys trust me on this, I know its fun to be stupid, but really just try your best to be safe. Nothing in the world is worth you getting hurt, nothing I tell you. Live your life to the fullest, but remember to be safe while doing so.

Please give it a try folks. It’s a lovely game made by me and my broski & classmate Karim. We’ve been trying to become better students and people in general and elhamdullah are on the right path, and we’ve taken this opportunity to aware people that are around us of the dangers of being under the influence with decisions that may matter to your life, or the life of people around you.

Oh by the way, if you’ve played the game before, you’ll notice it’s a lot more visual now, contains more professional language, has a couple of added scenario’s that spice things up, and finally feels smoother overall. If you guys like it, and can share it with your friends, maybe we can turn it into a real game, that is professionally done and for the only cause of making people more aware.
