She went on to say the primary schoolgirl would secretly get up in the night and play until dawn. After a series of $67 charges were placed on the family's credit card by the girl for premium in-game items, her father went to confiscate the Xbox and was struck in the face by the out-of-control kid.

According to the WHO's International Classification of Diseases, gaming disorder is "characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences".

While her daughter is in rehab, Carol has declared that Fortnite should be banned. The multiplayer shooter game, which lets players navigate a vast landscape, has racked up a huge following. "She had fallen asleep twice in lessons and her grades were slipping".

After the parents discovered the girl sitting on the urine-soaked cushion, they asked her to tell the truth.


Addictions counsellor Steve Pope, who treated the nine-year-old, said he had been contacted by parents of children as young as eight about possible Fortnite addictions.

The youngster is now working to get her life back on track.

Once the game's announced, fire up your Switch, head to the eShop and you should find a Fortnite on Switch download there. The game's rise in popularity has led to numerous other developers attempting to inject the mode into their own IPs, including Activision with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and EA with Battlefield V.

And professional gamers are making up to £500,000 (NZ$953,000) a month from live-streaming their matches for addicted children to watch. "I've been working in this field for three decades and never seen anything like it, how widespread and potentially damaging this is", he said.
