A portion of SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard Safe-class object locker. No personnel are to look at the front of SCP-XXXX outside of testing conditions. No pictures depicting inherently dangerous environments are to be shown to personnel after viewing SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a piece of paper with a drawing of two stick figures, (designated SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2) sitting on top of a hill pointing upward. SCP-XXXX-1 is drawn with long hair, while SCP-XXXX-2 has no hair. "Shooting star!" is written above SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2, presumably as dialogue. It is currently unclear if the dialogue belongs to SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-2, or is spoken in unison. Below the drawing of the hill are the words "Always have the best view of wherever the hell you are".

After a subject views SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 will appear in the next picture of a landscape the subject sees1. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 will only be visible to the subject, and tend to be situated on the vantage point most optimal for viewing the landscape. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 will remain in the photograph until the viewer looks away, at which point the picture returns to normal. Testing has confirmed that SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties do not transfer to other pictures, and can only be induced by viewing SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX was discovered on the dashboard of an abandoned car on the side of Highway 36 near Lyons, Colorado. The car had previously belonged to a Jonas Piler, who had gone missing three days earlier at the same time as his friend, Natasha Carthin.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-A: Below is the experiment log from SCP-XXXX. During each test, a subject viewed SCP-XXXX, and then viewed a photograph. Below are the subjects' descriptions of each photograph viewed. Responses noted appeared in speech bubbles associated with either SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-2.

Picture First Response Second Response
View from the top of Long's Peak, Colorado overlooking the front range. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are seen sitting, with their feet dangling over the edge of the ridge. SCP-XXXX-2: "Do you think we need to go any higher?" SCP-XXXX-1: "Race you there."
View from a dock on the edge of Lake Superior, Michigan. SCP-XXXX-1 is pushing SCP-XXXX-2 into the water. SCP-XXXX-2: "Hey!" SCP-XXXX-1: "You're already wearing a swim suit."
View from a safari surveying the Serengeti. A group of elephants can be seen behind the tall grass. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are pressed up against the safari jeep window. SCP-XXXX-2: "They're big aren't they?" SCP-XXXX-1: "Just like the rest of the world."
View out the window of an airplane at cruising altitude. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are sitting on the wing of the airplane, holding onto the edge. SCP-XXXX-1: "I'm a freeee biiiird." SCP-XXXX-2: "This is a bad idea."
View of an unidentified, shallow stream, with rocks protruding out of it. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are jumping from rock to rock, attempting to cross the stream. SCP-XXXX-1: "So, what are we doing next?" SCP-XXXX-2: "I don't know really. Depends where our adventure takes us."
View of the sunset from the top of an unidentified hill. SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 sit next to each other. SCP-XXXX-1 is looking away from SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-1: "So, is this all? Just you, me, and the scenery?" SCP-XXXX-2: "Pretty much, you wanted more adventures, right? Nice rhyme by the way."
View of the Rocky Mountains from the Front Range. SCP-XXXX-2 is looking to the left, where SCP-XXXX-1 can be seen leaving the picture. SCP-XXXX-2: "Wait, where are you going?" SCP-XXXX-1: "I… I need to go home. Maybe my parents are there. I don't know. But um… I need to at least see."
View of the front of Natasha Carthin's house. Neither SCP-XXXX-1 nor SCP-XXXX-2 are present.2 N/A N/A

Abandoned Skips

These are my works that I'm proud of, but don't really work on the site. So I'll just put them here. Hopefully I'll get back to them some day.

Loading screen for SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Webcrawler Upsilon-5 (“DLC”) will monitor Steam, Microsoft Store, Apple App Store, and any other digital distribution platforms for SCP-XXXX. Any manifestations of SCP-XXXX are to be removed immediately. Physical video game stores must also be monitored for instances of SCP-XXXX, and manifestations are to be treated in an analogous manner.

Civilians who have acquired copies of SCP-XXXX must be detained, and all evidence of SCP-XXXX confiscated. If they are playing SCP-XXXX upon discovery, they are to be commanded to continue playing SCP-XXXX, as Foundation personnel move the player and their console to a nearby Foundation Site.

MTF Lambda-5 (“White Rabbits”) is to regularly play SCP-XXXX, find all civilians playing SCP-XXXX, and evacuate them. If possible, Lambda-5 should collect personal information of all civilians evacuated to facilitate amnestic administration operations.

If a civilian is safely retrieved from SCP-XXXX, they should be amnestized and returned to society. If not, then their next of kin should be informed of their death using a suitable cover story.

Further attempts by MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") to interact with SCP-XXXX's servers are to be suspended indefinitely. Outside attempts to connect to SCP-XXXX's main servers are to be monitored, and stopped when possible.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the massively multiplayer online role-playing game “Open Horizon”, produced by Something About Online Games. First reports of SCP-XXXX manifesting in physical and online video game stores date back to 8/10/2017. Physical discs of the game work on most modern systems16.

When an individual plays SCP-XXXX, they lapse into a hallucinatory state where their senses are overridden with the sensory input from their in-game character17. Only extreme sensory inputs (such as pain and loud noises) from outside the game will be perceived during this state. Additionally, the in-game character will echo anything said by the player.

Players can still move their own bodies, but generally are disoriented, as movement in the real world does not translate to their character (which is still controlled via the game controller). There is no tutorial for the game, as the controls adapt to what the user believes to be the most intuitive way to control their character.

Players' senses remain altered until they exit the game. The game can only be exited when a player is at a “Save Point”, which are located throughout the game. Attempts to exit the game in other locations result in an error. Attempts to turn off consoles playing SCP-XXXX have failed. Removing the power source from the console does not stop gameplay either.

The following is known about gameplay within SCP-XXXX:

  • Upon starting the game, players all spawn at the same location, which is a town usually inhabited by 500-1000 players at any given time.
  • Players spawn with arbitrary starting equipment.
  • SCP-XXXX has the following options of note in its settings menu:
    • Pain - Set to "None" by the vast majority of interviewed players.
    • Resolution - Set to "Human Eye". The game prevents players from selecting any of the other options.
  • Outside of the original spawn location, the only large player population resides in a city called Smendal.

All attempts to locate an employee of Something About Online Games have failed. IP tracking indicates that the servers are located on a small island in Indonesia, however searches of the location have been fruitless. SCP-XXXX's servers cannot be accessed due to an ectoencrypted firewall.

Attempts to use AICs to interact with SCP-XXXX have failed. These attempts result in the message: “Reality Interaction Error: No CNS Detected".

Incident SCP-XXXX-A: On 09/14/2017, ███ players under Foundation care expired whilst playing SCP-XXXX. These individuals suffered from cerebral death, so the heart and other criticals systems continued operation due signals sent from the brainstem. Six hours after the beginning of the incident, a D-Class was secured, and the environment for an experiment was set up.

Autopsy did elucidate the cause of D-5540's cessation of cerebral function. By the end of the autopsy all of D-5540's organs had become inert.

The cause of SCP-XXXX-1 and the resulting change in behavior of SCP-XXXX is unknown.

MTF Lambda-5 Exploration: One day after incident SCP-XXXX-A, MTF Lambda-5 ("White Rabbits") was briefed on SCP-XXXX, and entered the game. Below is the record of their exploration.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-B: Below are the game materials collected by Lambda-5 during their exploration of SCP-XXXX.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-C: Three days following Lambda-5's exploration of SCP-XXXX, Captain Hart was approached by an individual identifying as Jeremy (PoI-XXXX). Due to the unforeseen nature of the encounter, Hart was not able to conduct a proper interview. However, she did record the conversation:

Below is a transcript of the business card Hart received:

Jeremy, CEO and Founder of Something About Online Games, Champion of Zygothra, Defender of Herculoid, Xanax the Conquerer, and Universal Game Dev.

Interdimensional Phone: Burn two octopods, throw three origami cranes in acid, then dial 52.06-LK4-L@55
Email: lri.semagenilnotuobagnihtemos|namj#lri.semagenilnotuobagnihtemos|namj

Over the course of the two days following the interview, the majority of brain dead players in Foundation custody regained cerebral activity, the others having been either autopsied or disposed of after the morgues had been filled at certain sites. Recovery of PoI-XXXX is now considered a Level Five Priority.
