It’s the start of the bleak, desolate Antarctic winter when a group of NSF researchers manning the claustrophobic, isolated U.S. Outpost 31 come into contact with a hostile, extraterrestrial lifeform. 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 somewhere, out there in the frigid darkness, something horrible is waiting.
In the hidden identity game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, you’ll relive John Carpenter’s thrilling sci-fi cult classic in a race to discover who among the team has been infected by this heinous lifeform. 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!
