An online dictionary based game by shockwave. Each room has 8 players. The idea is not to play the game (guessing the other persons draw) but to fulfil your empty life with drama. This is managed by the whisper facility.
The whisper button is a miracle! This little green button is the passage whereby extremely isolated deranged individuals connect to the outside world. This is achieved by purging every last detail of your private life onto the recipient at the other end of the whisper. This type of behaviour is usually found in the adult rooms and often involves individuals who normally would only be conversing with their psychiatrist once a month to discuss the recommended dosage.
Any way as a result of this little green button gossip is spread around the rooms about everyone like wild fire. Extreme paranoia sets in, and the gamer is left with the delusion that they actually have a rich life with plenty going on. This delusion is similar to what a hardcore drug user experiences. It’s a cheap high (usually followed by a huge come down) fills a vacuous state of mind but unfortunately for the gamer their life is being ruined and wasted in a world which isn’t really there.
Typical received whisper in inklink: “Mrs F spoke with Mr U and said that you were avoiding them because of what Ms C told Mr K and apparently Mrs Y is spreading gossip about something you said with Mr O and now Mr U is avoiding me …..”
Typical reply: “waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???? Wasn’t me!!!!!! Wtf!!! I’ve had enough of this chit!!!!”
