SCP Containment Breach is a horror game about fleeing a loosed aberration in a special lab.
In SCP Containment Breach, you play as a prison inmate undergoing tests in an "SCP lab" in some undisclosed location. The researchers and personnel in these labs do everything they can to stop and contain a huge variety of deadly creatures, which are given numerical designations as well as nicknames. Your character is a "Class-D test subject", who agreed to undergo SCP-related tests in exchange for their freedom.
The main SCP featured in this game is "SCP-173", a hostile fast-acting statue that only moves when it isn't being seen. Several other SCPs are featured in other roles, some as stray dangers and others as helpers, with one in particular providing the bulk of the game's plot, but SCP-173 is the main antagonist and the main danger.
In fact, the game's mechanics are centred around blinking, where the player must choose when and where to blink (or else involuntarily blink) in order to avoid being caught with their eyes closed in range of SCP-173. There are other dangers that use this mechanic, such as decontamination gas that irritates the eyes in many areas. Although the player cannot find any useful weapons, they can find several useful items – up to and including eyedrops, which cause the player to blink less often.
The SCPs originate from a wiki (similar to Wikipedia) where people collaborated on the creation of these SCPs and the stories around them. Therefore, every SCP found in the game can be read about on the Internet, and their stories contributed to, if the player so wishes; the depth of SCP Containment Breach extends quite a bit beyond the game itself.
Without giving too much away, the game features multiple endings, some of which result in the player's death and some of which result in their successful escape. Because of this, as well as the fact that the SCP facility's layout is randomly generated in each game, there is value in playing the game several times – even if you don't die the first time! SCP Containment Breach is well worth a look.
