So CREEPY >< SCP- Containment Breach

hahaha!

My friend at college was playing this free game on his laptop. IT WAS SO WEIRD XD
It surprised me how much it freaked him out, he's the kind of 'macho' person and is going n to join the marines, so his reaction was even more hilarious.

This is the game:

Basically, you are a 'classified personnel' in this containment centre and your initial job is to part of three people to keep and eye on a euclid:
SCP-173 in containment

who acts like the Angels from Dr Who. It can only move when you are not looking at it,
(more info: http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-173 ) and you have a blink meter at the bottom left of the page showing you when you HAVE to blink.

Basically, at the beginning, something goes wrong and the power cuts out, the Creature kills the other two people in the room and you panic to leave through the door at the end of the room. I do panic by this stage because it seems as though i am easily scared by video games. oh well, it adds to the fun.

There are random Items you can pick up as you go that may help you get around, but for the most part i just run and close all the doors behind me. Otherwise i am afraid the creature might chase me XD. Here are some game features as shown on the site:

Game features:
  • Randomly generated map – every playthrough is different
  • Main focus on SCP-173 and puzzles built around it
  • Blink-meter that forces you to blink after a while
  • Items that you must use to get out of the facility…
  • …or to find out what is happening
  • Random appearances of SCP-[REDACTED] and SCP-[REDACTED]
  • Surveillance cameras and monitors that may help or harm you
  • Keter-difficulty with permadeath – if you die, your save is deleted
  • Euclid-difficulty with normal saving

It really is randomly generated, so every time you play the game the map will change, so you can't memorize it and it's always a surprise... great :P

I have only played it a little so, although there are probably many more monsters to witness, i have only encountered one other one:
SCP-106, mid emergence
This one is creepy, it has different rules surrounding it as well. You can blink, you just can't touch. Or, surprise surprise, you'll die. Sounds simple but it's not. He's so hard to get away from , i assume that's why you have a running bar as well, so quicker escape but also impaired bu your characters fitness. Damn :P
Here's more info on him too: http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-106

He does look creepy.

There are a few really annoying bits, like the area after you run away from the first Euclid there's a corridor that spurts black gas at you that you can't see through. Yeah, that's fantastic when your afraid of blinking in case the SCP finds you. Then you manage to get through the smoke (with help of the gas mask otherwise i think it hurts your eyes) it might be on the other side. Scream. Panic. Run backwards hoping you don't have to blink.

It seems as though this game doesn't actually have a purpose yet, apart from to survive, so it is potentially endless. This doesn't matter though because the game itself is so much fun to play. Your Adrenaline is high while you constantly scan the screen for a monster that threatens your life. Open a door and it might be there, look at a computer screen and it's there on the other side of the camera.
I love this game i really do and, if it ever happens, if it becomes a proper game i would SO buy it. Then waste ALL of the hours i need to revise for my exams. So worth it.

Here's a little video.

Enjoy :D
