Wasted Youth, Part 1 takes place behind the walls of St. Frosts Academy - a school for slackers, troublemakers and idiots.
At first everything seems normal, but soon, children start to go missing...

Features: 16 main story missions, 13 side missions, 20 lessons to attend, 60 rooms to explore, 50 collectable trading cards to find, 60 achievements to complete, over 30 unlockable extras, and much much more...

Please be patient with the loading, the game file is over 10 megs so it might take a small while depending on your connection.

Instructions:
Arrows / WASD - Movement
Shift - Walk/Run (auto-run now on by default)
Space - Interact / Talk / Advance conversation
P - Pause Menu
Mouse is used for menus, dialogue box & other interfaces
Change auto-run & text speed options in the options menu.
You can also unlock double-speed after earning 10 achievements. (doesn't take long)
This can be toggled on in the Game Mod section of the options menu.

Updates
-----------
For those using Internet Explorer having trouble moving (delayed keyboard reactions / sticky keys), please try the game in Chrome or Firefox. Otherwise, try the following fix:
Click Tools -> Internet Options -> Security tab -> uncheck protected mode.
Or if you don't want decreased security, try the alternative fix posted here: http://www.kongregate.com /forums/7-technical-suppo rt/topics/67250-fix-for-k eys-sticking-in-games-in-
internet-explorer.
This seems to be a specific known issue with Internet Explorer with intensive flash games. You won't lose your progress by switching browsers.
-----------
We are aware that some people are having lag issues.
Please make use of the quality options and we'll be working on improving performance as much as we can.
The game runs better in Chrome and Firefox, so if you have them, try that in the meantime. You won't lose your progress by switching.
-----------
We apologise to those of you who think the translations are bad.
It was never made to be translated into 4 other languages, but it was a requirement from our sponsor.
We did not use Google Translate, we used a company used by our sponsor.
I only speak English, so I could never have known the quality of the translations. Please don't downrate the game because of this.
If you speak good English, I recommend you just stick with English.
Thanks.

This is pretty fun and really nostalgic for me, I remember playing it when it first came out. However, like the review below me, when I get to the part where I need to compare handwriting, it doesn't work. :( The other handwriting pages don't come up; double-clicking, space bar, nothing works. The trophies don't work (for me, at least) either. The in-game achievements do, but the Newgrounds-side trophies don't. I remember that they used to, so it must've been a problem with the flashplayer no longer being supported or something. The parts I got to play were fun anyway!

i love this game but when i get to the part where i check the handwriting, it wont let me click on the papers

It's really cool to find references in this game I didn't know about when I first played this when it came out, such as the album cover art in the upstairs bedroom in the lower right of the dorms (Minutemen's "Buzz or Howl Under The Influence of Heat" greaaat ass album!!!) Also really cool to add a Naughty By Nature beat to it. I knew when I first heard Feel Me Flow that it sounded familiar.
I wonder what else I'll rediscover in this game. Still waiting for Part 2 dammit!!!11!

Cool game

so the game itself is fun once you can get it going, lots to really explore in this game Good effort here and I really look forward to seeing more stuff like this even if you didnt add anything new to the game it would still be solid, The story was nice but kinds of ends short I look forward to seeing much more of your work in the near future after seeing and messing with this game I thought it was great, This was a fun game but could use more story to it

~X~

To those who want to play this flash game again, its completely playable on Flashpoint, it's how I was able to experience it for essentially the first time. (I never got far in this game as a kid.)

But as for the review of this game, it's a lot of great fun! There's a lot to explore, and while the main story is short, it is made up for it with a shit ton of achievements and collectables scattered about the world. Not to mention some decently fun side quests. The only problem I can see people having is that there's not many hints as far as I can tell as to what to do for them.

But to get more in detail about the story, it's decent. Although it ending on a cliffhanger with no part 2 for nearly 12 years at this point is kind of depressing.

Overall though, it's a damn fine flash game.
