Ampheta Time! is a recreational drug sold in the underwater city of Rapture.

HistoryEdit

Being a city where the moral and ethical constraints found on the surface were not an issue, the entrepreneurs starting up businesses in Rapture could profit of anything they liked and could sell. One of these products were Ampheta Time!, a blue pill containing an undisclosed amount of the stimulant amphetamine. The pill would increase the attention and activity of the user, which the workingmen of Rapture would likely enjoy.
