This game follows the story of what happens after the John Carpenter 1982 movie adaptation of the John W. Campbell JR Novel "Who Goes There?". The original game borrows heavily on the story from the 2002 video game and the current sequel expands further on the plot after Captain Blake defeats the Thing entity. After the death of Whitley and the destruction of Gen Inc property; Captain J.F.Blake boards a rescue plane and leaves Antarctica. Complications arise and the aircraft malfunctions and crashes. With no report from Blake the Alaska base sends in a new rescue team of which you the player take control. Your task is to find Captain Blake and escort him back to Alaska. However the thing entity did not die with Whitley on that day...
Apologies for the lack of updates and slow release of the Update and/or any news relating to it. So far I have done 3 of 6 things for the update and am currently in the process of testing the 3rd thing.
Anyway this is the 6th revision of the ship deck exterior (its still in its rough designs). This is for the 5th part of the update which is a story set on a frozen ship which I ambitiously aspire to have it run in a way similar to dead rising where there is a time limit (Time until Rescue/Military Arrives), active case files (Story Progress/Mystery), rescuable survivors and a day/night cycle.
The ship story is initially about an arctic research team which are excavating in a remote region when they (shock) uncover something buried in the ice. The ship unfortunately gets trapped in the ice and the frozen block thaws way before rescue has any chance of reaching them. This story was written by Cody Ball who submitted it to me as fan fiction based on a news story at the time. Resident Evil Revelations and Dead Rising are big factors in the influence of this stories arc and design.
You will take the Role of a young research named Natalie and hopefully the limited crew, equipment and time limit should make it a respectable challenge for people who have enjoyed the game so far.
I will post more updates of the ship design as it goes, we need to work on the top section (Comms Tower / Bridge), More External Pieces (Oil Drums etc) and A helipad at the rear of the ship. Once the design is complete there will also be a backdrop created for this. In game view the design looks a lot better. Thanks for your patience and playing the game.
