Mariam, Just When You Thought You’ve Seen All

You may have thought that you’ve seen it all in life and that it can’t get any weirder, well surprise!

Mariam, a Saudi horror app on the app store, because we don’t have enough shit on the internet already. For those who still don’t know what Mariam is, it’s a horror game about a lost girl, she’ll keep asking you some questions and you have to answer her without skipping any questions but it doesn’t end here.

Rumor has it that as soon as you download the app your phone starts going crazy. You’ll find people calling you in the middle of the night and you won’t find any trace of them on your phone’s log. You’ll find your phone playing music on itself, making weird noises and operating on itself as it has a mind of its own or as if someone else is controlling it.

Some people claimed that the game contains actual black magic while others just went with the simple idea of hackers having control over your phone. Whatever it is, the game has gone too far that the UAE police asked people to stop playing this game after finding out it asks some odd questions like “Where do you live?” and “What’s your Facebook account?” as well as giving only two options to one question which either connects to your Whatsapp or to your Mail.

Developer of Mariam, Salman al-Harbi, spoke to Khaleeji Times about the game saying that it’s no more than a game for entertainment which doesn’t save answers and therefore there’s no abuse to one’s privacy.
