For those who don’t know, Fortnite is a fast-paced arcade shooter type of game. You drop onto an island at different locations and you have to find weapons, collect resources, build defenses and survive. The idea of the game is very similar to the recent Hunger Games movies and is kid-friendly.

Many Ada High students including junior Dakota Truelove have gotten on board the Fortnite craze.

“It’s kind of like Divergent and Hunger Games put together,” said Truelove. “There’s a train that comes by and you have to jump off. It’s really fun.”
