The thing - survival horror with elements of a third person shooter.

The plot of the work is based on the events of the cult horror film "The Thing" and continues the mysterious story of an alien virus. The action takes place at the Norwegian polar station, which was damaged during the events of the film. The main character - Captain John Blake must figure out what is happening and save the surviving employees of the station.

Character abilities are limited - Blake cannot jump or overcome massive obstacles.

Combat mechanics are divided into 2 main categories:

  • "Normal" mode - movement from a third person is available and not too accurate automatic shooting;
  • "Shooting" mode - accurate aiming from the first person.
The frosty environment adds elements of survival to the gameplay - a long stay under the Antarctic winds negatively affects the state of the characters.

An important part of the story is occupied by the squad management function:

  • issuing instructions during a battle or being in cover (repairing mechanisms, supplying electricity, treating victims or conducting a battle);
  • tracking the psychological state of the team and increasing morale with medicines or equipment (various dangers can scare soldiers, forcing them to act rashly - shoot in all directions, throw weapons, run away or commit suicide);
  • increasing the scale of "trust" NPCs, the level of which depends on the degree of their subordination (this is influenced by any actions of the gamer - activity in battle, defeating monsters, issuing powerful equipment to NPCs);
  • tracking and destruction of "infected" soldiers (checking for the presence of a virus with a special medical "test").
In total, The Thing has 3 types of subordinates - "Engineer", "Medic" and "Soldier". Some of them are available from the beginning of the path, some of them must be met and rescued in the process of passing. While exploring locations, a gamer can pick up several types of weapons - an assault rifle, a shotgun, a submachine gun, a flamethrower, a sniper and even a powerful grenade launcher.

The main enemies are mutated people or animals - "Hoduns", "Crawlers", "Jumpers", "Hydras" and alien "Something". Some of them can only be killed by complete burning, because severed arms and legs continue to actively attack the team.

On the way, the user is invariably accompanied by a viscous atmosphere of horror and despair, filled with mysterious steps, rustles and screams.
