It is the start of the bleak, desolate, Antarctic winter when a group of NSF researchers manning the claustrophobic, isolated U.S. Outpost 31 comes into contact with a hostile extraterrestrial life form. Bent on assimilating Earth’s native species, this being infiltrates the facility, creating a perfect imitation of one of the Outpost 31 crew. The staff frantically begins a sweep of the base, desperate to purge this alien infection before escaping to warn McMurdo Station that something horrible is waiting somewhere out there in the frigid darkness.
In The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, relive John Carpenter’s sci-fi cult classic as a hidden-identity game designed to push you to the edge. Play as one of a dozen characters like helicopter pilot MacReady, mechanic Childs, or station manager Garry. Face sabotage and infection as you investigate the facility, gather gear, battle The Thing, expose any imitations among you, and escape Outpost 31!
Tension mounts and paranoia ensues as you question whom you can trust in the ultimate race to save humanity.
