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...

Posted by on

We're finally here now Captain! The long overdue v2 expansion of the game is ready; free for you all to enjoy. I've attached some system spec guidelines and some other key notes I think people should read before downloading the game.

Disclaimer

This 'Traditional Style' Sci-Fi RPG is a "Non-Profit" Fan Made game based on the events after the 1982 movie "The Thing" created by John Carpenter. It is in no way endorsed by John Carpenter or Universal Studios and shares likeness only in name. In my eyes it is the same as drawing a picture of a popular character and posting it online for all to see. I funded this game with my own money and I do not generate any revenue from ModDB or the ads displayed on my website (which I also pay for). If there are grounds for an issue with copyright then I am willing to take responsibility for that and make the appropriate changes where needed to resolve the issue. The Majority of the content (music, artwork, code) in the game is either licensed for use, originally created or credit is given where due for work used in 'Free' projects.

Now that's out of the way I just want to say that I hope you enjoy the game and any constructive feedback or general comments you can give me would be great. I think that this tested my mettle at times but I'm happy with the final product. YouTube user Sadonrii who did a let's play of my game before has kindly agreed to play more of the game; you can see that below if you are unsure of what to expect. (Spoiler Warnings)

System Specs

Since the v1 there have been massive improvements to overall performance. I believe the game will run on a wide range of Windows Computers now and the v2 tanks far less in comparison to the v1. Below are the recommended specs based on those provided by the RPG Maker Team. (Official Specs)

OS: Windows XP or later
CPU: Intel® Pentium® 4 2.0 GHz equivalent or faster processor
RAM: 512MB RAM
Storage: 400mb

You can delete your old v1 copies as the v2.4 is treated as a new game. Please note that previous saves will not work with the v2.4.

There was a longer campaign planned but I kept it simple this time around, maybe in the future but Beat Normal Difficulty Thing Mode and play a NewGame+ Story with that Data. Subject #21 may appear and you can decide if the creature will fulfill it's revenge motives.
