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...

The Thing v2.6

News

Hi all, it’s been just over 2 years since I last posted an update on here and I have a bunch of news to share today and some info on where you can find me these days.


From 2017 to Now

So, the last update (v2.5.3) which came out around May 2017 was intended to be the last update for the game as I wanted to move on to something else. I have worked on other stuff over the last few years but due to financial and general life constraints I’ve had to abandon stuff for the time being.

Sometime in late 2017 while working on other stuff we kept coming up with ways to expand upon and improve the thing RPG based on what we had learned working with RPG Maker MV. In 2018 we began preparing the v2.5.4 update for it and due to its size, it became the v2.6 update. This update was intended to release in 2018 but due to the amount of content and how busy we all were it still hasn’t released yet.

The game has received new content, several mechanical improvements, a lot of balance changes/bugfixes and a large graphical overhaul over the last few years and the v2.6 update is still currently in development. It is intended to be the final update for the game.


Where to Find Me

I’ve been making monthly posts on my website with updates about the game and little tidbits about my life for the past year or so and I’ve also been maintaining a discord server for the website with a section dedicated to the Thing 2 RPG. So, if you are still interested in the game you can check out my website for what’s new and members of my discord server can even access a private test build of the game to play (see details on my site).

I don’t really visit this ModDB page anymore but I will leave it up for historical purposes and I will leave the old v2.5 builds of the game here for download.


Thanks for reading.

-Richard

I have a big idea:
Add a new game mode: Freemode
-Freemode: You can walk around all the bases, camps, facilities and caves to explore, hunting 'things' and find some supplies, you can also find some batteries to charge/recharge your radio to call for supply crates and friendlies or maybe airstrike(in battle), and the main characters are fearless, unlimited REPs(you can carry how many supplies as you can)

*Update*
The latest version (the v2.5.4 update) is still being worked on and will include a bunch of changes/fixes to the game as well as some new minor features. The Game Icons should also be getting an overhaul but I don't know when we can do this by.
In addition I am working on a Chinese Translation for the game, its my first Translation so I hope it comes out alright.

Nice work, I'll leave you a more detailed reply later but for now this sounds great.. I mean not just the way you explain the Thing as a RPG, but how its progressed in patch notes.
