The Associated Press is reporting that eight teen gamers in Singapore joined a suicide pact last month. However, after watching two of their number leap from a ninth floor window, the rest backed out.
The teens were reportedly fans of a video game called Slayers.
Citing a report Singapore's New Paper, the AP writes:
According to a police investigation, 16-year-old Ku Witaya, a self-proclaimed Taoist medium, convinced his younger brother and six other boys that they had to die to become 'slayers' who would kill demons in a World War III.
