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...
A video preview of the game engine before I start building the story mode. Almost everything works but a few things still need tweaking. Chances of party members being infected by Thing creatures is set low but seems to happen often regardless :\

Almost everything works but a few things still need tweaking. Chances of party members being infected by Thing creatures is set low but seems to happen often regardless :\ I found a few bugs while doing the recording and I will get around to fixing them. I start building story mode on Sunday. I estimate October for this release but I think I will get it finished sooner ;)
The video is a bit slow at times but that is due to the lag I suffer while playing, I hope people with more powerful computers than mine will not suffer this lag. I have tried my best to stop it but alas I fail. It is somewhat improved than what it originally was though :)
There is sound in the game, its just I failed to record it so enjoy the free you tube audio for now ^^ A lot of the sounds in the game are either from the Movie, ripped from the 2002 video game or are Midi background files from old ps1 games like Resident Evil 1. I felt that they fitted best.
