The story continues in Ben Drowned Part 4. This is a scary creepypasta story about a young man who comes across a bootleg cartridge of the Nintendo 64 game “The Legend of Zelda – Majora’s Mask”. When he plays the game, he begins to suspect it is haunted by the ghost of a boy named Ben who drowned.
Ben Drowned 4 – Jadusable
Let me just clear things up. I know you guys are worried, but “Jadusable” is okay. He finished moving out today and said he’s going back home to take the semester off.
I’m not really sure what happened. I have a vague idea, but you guys probably know more than I do. I’m “Jadusable’s” friend and, obviously, I’ve known something was wrong with him for a few days now.
He stayed in his room all the time, fell out of contact with all of his friends, and I’m pretty sure he hasn’t been eating anything. I tried talking to him several times, but he would cut me off or keep the conversation brief. When I asked him about his strange behavior, it was like he was convinced something was hunting him.
Yesterday I came by to borrow a book and he was looking awful, with horrible bags under his eyes. He handed me a flash drive and gave me specific instructions. He told me he needs me to do one last favor for him.
He finally explained to me what has been going on. He gave me the account info to his Youtube account and instructions to post the rest of his story. He said you guys deserved to see the end of it.
He told me he’s getting away from here, that the game lured him to play again instead of trying to change things and he shouldn’t have done that. He told me to upload the footage and inform people what happened.
I told him he could do it himself and he got this wild look in his eye, saying he is never looking at that game again. That’s the last thing he said to me. He never even said bye when his parents came to pick him up. I was hoping I’d at least get a chance to meet his parents, but they were in and out so quick I never saw them.
I honestly can’t tell you what happened. When he spoke, it was kind of hard to understand him. His messed up appearance distracted me, too.
On the flash drive was footage of the game last night, a text document with his name and a password for Youtube, and a third document called TheTruth.txt that contained what he told me were his “last notes” that he’d taken about this.
He told me it meant everything to him that I follow his instructions exactly. Normally, I wouldn’t be so ‘to the letter’ for a request over a stupid video game, but the way he spoke and looked made me understand that this was really serious.
I’ve had this video since yesterday, but had to have someone help me use Pinnacle (that’s not really my forte). After watching it, I had to go back through and look at the other videos on his Youtube account to figure out what was going on. Even then I’m really confused.
The video is being released tonight, but TheTruth.txt will be released on September 15th just like he requested. I don’t know why he wants to wait for his notes to be published, but after what he’s been through I’ll honor the request.
I haven’t dared peek at it yet, so the first time I see it will be the first time you see it out of respect to my friend. To answer your questions… No, I haven’t tried calling him yet. I think I’ll give him a call tomorrow to see if he’s okay or not. He should have gotten back home by now.
About the video: I cut straight to when he loaded the “BEN” file in the game. Looking back, I realized that “Jadusable” left the save select screen in because it occasionally said different names. My bad for that, but all it said this time was the same at the end of his last video (Link and BEN).
I wasn’t there when he played it, but it looks to me like in the beginning, he’s testing out his equipment or seeing what items he has or something. Apparently, they’ve changed randomly before. The video starts then. He really wanted you guys to see this. After that, I think the game got too personal for him.
