There is a game named, ” 5 Minutes To Kill (Yourself)” marketed on the Cartoon Network.
The premise behind 5 Minutes To Kill (Yourself) is purely sick and twisted. Your character is an office worker who would rather commit suicide than attend another meeting. Walking around the office, you are tasked with finding various ways to harm yourself and inflict enough trauma to end your life before the time limit is up.
The game begins with a simple tutorial of the various instruments around the office that can be used to inflict self-harm.
Do people really believe this game has no psychological impact on the young minds playing it?
I also made a special note from the promo above about one of the ways you could kill yourself, in the game, called, “This Guy,” who apparently, from what I could gather in the promo, is just a black character that goes around killing you. This, in itself, raises a red flag but at this point, there were so many I lost count.
Adult Swim is the adult-oriented nighttime programming block of the American children’s cable network “Cartoon Network”.
A block of time from 8PM to 6AM is carved out for adult-themed content. My guess is that children are continuously monitored by the parents so that the moment 8PM arrives they quickly whisk them away from the television to ensure they don’t see any adult content.
Shows may have sexual themes, frank sexual discussion, nudity, strong language, and graphic violence; in other words, programs that would be deemed inappropriate if aired during the day on Cartoon Network, when children would be watching.
