Please note that this game is rated 15 by the BBFC. Universal Interactive’s The Thing, a game inspired by Universal Studios’ and John Carpenter’s classic horror film of the same name, picks up where the movie left off and features an all-new cast of characters.

You are a military squad captain sent into the frozen Antarctic to investigate the mysterious deaths of an American scientific expedition. Are you a trustworthy leader? Are your fellow soldiers really on your side? Are they even human? London-based game developer Computer Artworks, Ltd. has created a revolutionary gameplay mechanic never before implemented in the survival/horror genre: an advanced trust/fear interface enabling you to monitor the psychological states of the non-playing characters (NPC’s) which in turn determine whether these characters co-operate with you. Unlike most survival/horror games, The Thing demands that you work with your increasingly suspicious team-mates, relying on wits and an arsenal of weaponry, including flame-throwers and machine guns, to escape infection and finish the game with your squad.

The ultra-realistic 3D game also features groundbreaking snow and lighting effects, subtle sound cues and some of the most hyper-detailed and truly horrific creatures ever to grace the gaming screen. The Thing is difficult to see, hard to kill and seemingly impossible to evade. Are you ready?

Features

  • Taking place shortly after the events seen in the 1982 film - The Thing takes us back to the Antarctic base and familiar locals from the film for a terrifying, new chapter of isolation and paranoia.
  • Advanced trust/fear interface adds a new dimension to the genre - How you influence non-player characters (NPCs) psychological state determines whether or not these characters will co-operate with you. Amazing lighting, weather and particle effects complemented by subtle sound cues and scripted events create a new level of suspense and terror.
  • Unique combat system that allows weapons to be customised and scratch built in many cases.
  • Puzzle Solving can be accomplished by a multitude of scenarios - there is never just one way to accomplish an objective.
  • Varied pace of gameplay throughout the game, blending action, puzzles, horror and human interaction.
