SCP-255 is an anomalous infectious phenomenon of extraterrestrial origin, manifesting in most living subjects as a neurological disorder with varying symptoms. Eligible carriers of SCP-255 have thus far been observed to be organisms possessing a cerebral cortex with approximately ≥5.4 billion neurons. Experimentation has determined that species capable of contracting SCP-255 include humans, chimpanzees, African elephants, bottlenose dolphins, false killer whales, and others.
Inspired by XCOM and a legion of brilliant authors this game puts you in the shoes of the newly appointed Overseer of the SCP Foundation, an extraterritoral organization charged to secure anomalous artifacts around the world, contain public knowledge, and protect the world’s existence from the hazards these items possess.
You must Secure. Find anomalous events and SCP entities. Customize your armed forces and research powerful new technologies. Dispatch task forces to lock down and retrieve it. Fight off others interested in the same prize.
You must Contain. Suppress public knowledge of the events. Recruit governments, agents, and organizations to fund and support your goals.
You must Protect. Build bases and secure areas to store anomalous items. Stop the spread of anomalous effects. Beware of dangerous containment breaches.
As time passes the beginning hastens the end. Something nearly destroyed the Foundation once. It won’t make the same mistake again.
GLOBAL CONTROL: Build a secret extra-territorial organization that spans the globe. Interact and negotiate with rival organizations and governments to contain anomalous threats.
TACTICAL SQUAD COMBAT: Control squads of soldiers to contain or destroy anomalous entities.
BASE DEFENSE: Contain hazardous anomalies for study in custom built containment facilities. Your base becomes the battle map. Design defenses to keep your collections in and rival organizations out.
OPEN ENDED UNIVERSE: Over 2000 different anomalies can appear in game. Connections to the SCP Wiki, a peer reviewed collection, allows for access to new and improved anomalies as they are added to the wiki.
MODDING: Designed for modding from the ground up. Plain text content allows non-technical players to still change the game as they wish.

What she means:Yesterday, I watched three men die because one man sneezed in a room full of blood and shit and light. Today, three more men go in, cheap mops and each other's lives in their hands.Yesterday ,I watched a man I admired gunned down for leaving a rose for a girl whose life was tattered by trauma she never deserved. Today, she doesn't remember, and three halls down I can hear her screaming. Yesterday, I watched a group of soldiers go down fighting against the corpses of comrades who'd died before them. Today, we test another sample, this time on children. Yesterday, I watched five men and women gunned down in an abandoned factory no one cares about. Today, it happens again and again. Every eleven seconds. Forever. Yesterday, I watched a man sit comfortably in a nice armchair, sipping scotch and laughing as he ordered a woman to simply stop breathing. Today, he gets the day off of work detail for good behavior. Yesterday, I watched hundreds of men and women in orange jumpsuits herded like animals into empty rooms that filled with gas and fire. Today, hundreds more are told they have a chance for a lighter sentence, and a chance to serve their country. Yesterday, I watched the world nearly die in a thousand thousand terrible ways. Sometimes we would have had time to scream.Today,I'm alive to write about it. You want happy endings? Fuck you. You're alive to read it. God help us all. Secure. Contain. Protect.
