Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 225 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

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.

Я плохо знаю английский, извините. Я играла в эту игру давно, и решила повторить на этом сайте. Я горжусь, что родилась тогда в то же время, что и игра. Она моя любимая. Я думаю, что лучше этой игры может быть только вторая часть. Спасибо вам огромное за этот шедевр!!!

(Reposting this comment that I put earlier in your blog onto here since you appear to be more active here than in your other media :0 !!)

Hello, Tom! I have been a fan of your game ever since it has come out! I played it when I was about 8 and barely understood anything due to how small I was but I recently re-discovered the game on NotDoppler and I'm currently playing through it all over again with a giant sense of nostalgia :)
There is a chance you might not see this comment because you seem to be inactive here, but if you do, I hope you have lots of success and good luck with your future project :D

I really want to draw fan-art for this game but I'm asking for permission before I do in case you don't allow it, because I know some creators don't like fan-work
Also my favorite characters are Xerxes, Michael, Chris and Joey!! I've loved them ever since I first played and if you're okay with the fan-work question I'll be more than glad to draw them! (I just need to know how to send them to you (via e-mail, on this platform, or somewhere else of your choice) afterwards)

Thank you so much for your hard work and the amazing fun little game that has been making others happy for years!
It's literally the best school-based simulator game I've played in my life and no other simulator game that currently exists can beat it :) !!! (And trust me, I probably played more games than the character Harold lol)

I'm in the First Night, I did everything but I can't reach the marked bed i'm, stuck in the corridor beside the room, can't open the door! HEEEEELLLLLPPPP! I'm claustrophobic!

ill be waiting for Wasted Youth 2 anytime , hope the author is alright and dont push himself too much , wish to see it before i die :V my first fav RPG flash game

omg i just found this game after serching for years, so happy
