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...

Nothing bad ever happens at Gen Inc. Apart from when the power goes out across the base and all the "samples" get loose. Hopefully with this level (OM: Level 07: Gen Inc Viral Research Base) you will struggle for survival against The Thing and Gen Inc Staff trying to contain the outbreak. Also with the environments considering the power is down it will be quite dark in the actual game so you won't have much of a heads up as to what is moving around on the screen ;)
