About SCP: Secret Laboratory

Deep within the SCP Foundation during a containment breach, many of the anomalies have bypassed security and escaped from their chambers – without peaceful intentions. Become site personnel, a re-containment agent, or an anomalous entity and fight to take control of or escape the facility!

SCP: Secret Laboratory is a multiplayer horror game, based on SCP – Containment Breach by Undertow Games (in 2012). To create this game, Unity engine was used to provide higher stability and more details. Still being in the beta phase, the game can contain a number of bugs and errors which are usually spotted by a large team of testers and fixed quickly after.

It is a completely free horror game based on SCP Foundation creepypasta series. The Foundation focuses on protecting the world from any entity, object or phenomenon which exceeds the all-known idea of normal.

The underground facility suffers from multiple breaches from various SCP objects which escape their containment chambers. During this events chain, players are given roles to play:

Class-D Personnel

Prisoners kept for a purpose of being lab rats. Their mission is to escape the facility without getting any attention from others.

Scientist

Breach attendant that tries to escape the facility alive.

Nine-Tailed Fox / Guards

The team designated to neutralize the danger and rescue Scientists.

Chaos Insurgency

Foundation traitors, trying to help Class D to escape in order to obtain helpful information.

SCP Object

Anomaly trying to kill as many people as possible. Currently, only a few SCP objects can be found in-game, but progressively their number will grow in oncoming updates.

The randomly generated facility and role division make every game special and full of sensations! You never know where you are heading or what awaits you behind the next door, no matter what role you are playing. The winner team is one that finished all of its objectives.

There are many ways of fighting against enemies, from using firearms to detonating the whole facility with a hydrogen bomb.
In the game, we can encounter such anomalies like:

SCP-173

Living concrete sculpture that can move only when not observed, killing people by snapping opponents' necks.

SCP-106

Humanoid able to walk past matter, sending its prey to its Pocket Dimension.

SCP-049

Plague doctor trying to ``cure`` everyone he meets.

SCP-096

``Shy Guy`` who screams and goes on a rampage upon looking at him.

SCP-939

A monster, which can only see if you make sound.

SCP-079

Sentient AI, which tries to stay on during the breach.

Parabellum Update — Introducing SCP-173


Hello everyone.

We are proud to announce an important addition to the 11.0 update, now called “Parabellum”. Arguably the most recognized SCP, SCP-173, has been reworked for the upcoming update! You can find the reveal animation here:

SCP-173
The Model
The decision to rework SCP-173 was decided long ago, with the model being completed by mid-2019. This model may not be new to some of you and has been nicknamed “Matthew” by the staff and community. This model steps away from typical 173 variations. We hope this model adds some fear and revulsion to the facility.



Ability Showcase
Below you will find a description of SCP-173’s abilities and the reasoning behind these additions. Please note that specifics are subject to change during the Beta.

(Passive) Reinforced Concrete
With the introduction of the armor system, SCP-173 has been given innate armor against attacks. They have a “Hume Shield” of 1000 which regenerates at a rate of 10/s after avoiding damage for 10 seconds. It can also regenerate an immediate 100 AHP for killing someone with the “Stained” effect. Additionally, they have a 60% armor efficacy against all bullet attacks, which uses the same formulae as actual body armor(penetration, etc).

SCP-173 has always struggled in open engagements with armed human classes and can often get shredded quickly. The Design team decided to turn this idea on its head — instead of being completely discouraged from engagements, participating in them is now a viable option. This doesn’t mean that SCP-173 is invulnerable, but contributes to their theme and puts a unique twist on their vulnerability to gunfire when being observed.

(Passive) Witness
“Witness” is closer to being a core mechanic than an ability. It does, however, interact with all abilities and is responsible for many interactions. As the current SCP-173, a player can move around and kill as usual, when not observed. When observed, the player becomes immobile. The only way to move when immobile is by using “Blink”. The cooldown for this alters depending on the number of people “witnessing” SCP-173. When being observed by a “Witness” you will gain an eye indicator in the center of your screen, this will eventually turn red when your “Blink” ability is fully charged.

Snap
SCP-173’s signature ability (“Snap”) remains almost the same, allowing a player to kill anyone close enough with LMB (default). This can only be used when not observed.

Blink
SCP-173 has received a new system for how they “Blink”. Previously a player would hold their movement keys and “Blink” at intermittent intervals. With the new model, the player can now control when they blink by charging the ability with RMB (default) and releasing to move. This movement ability only works when being watched and has a limit of 15 meters. Any human-class player observing SCP-173 while they “Blink” will notice themselves blinking; allowing SCP-173 to move and kill the closest human within 2 meters of their landing spot.

The default cooldown for the ability is 3 seconds but is increased by 1 second for every human observing them. As an example, if four players are observing SCP-173 the “Blink” cooldown would be 7 seconds. This cooldown changes drastically when other players look at, or look away from, SCP-173 but will never cancel a fully-charged blink.

These changes were made because SCP-173’s blink movement wasn’t obvious, relied on old code, and gave the player little control. These issues made SCP-173 frustrating to use at times. With this rework, the Design team wanted to make SCP-173 both more threatening and give the player more control over their movement and targeting. This is to ease the learning curve while still allowing a player to improve with experience. The myriad of anti-cheat and stability issues plaguing the current version of SCP-173 should also be improved with these new systems.

Breakneck Speeds
This ability doubles SCP-173’s movement speed and blink range but prevents them from killing anyone while it’s active. The ability can be toggled with the sprint key and lasts until it is cancelled or someone observes SCP-173, at which point it ends after a 10-second grace period. The ability can be used while SCP-173 is being observed but the grace period will immediately start ticking down. This ability has a cooldown of 45 seconds, starting the moment it is cancelled.

The ability is intended to be a hybrid between mobility and escaping. SCP-173’s default movement speed is still faster than a human sprinting but is substantially reduced compared to the current version. SCP-173 will no longer gain speed upon taking damage. Keeping the ability active allows a player to move very fast between encounters, but a player runs the risk of being vulnerable in an ambush.

Tantrum
An ability that leaves behind a pool of which has a radius of 2.75 meters. While SCPs are unaffected by the pool, any human classes that pass through this gains the “Stained” effect. This will reduce their movement speed by 20% and prevent them from sprinting. A pool lasts 180 seconds with a 30-second cooldown between placing them. The “Stained” effect lingers for 3 seconds upon leaving the pool. If SCP-173 kills someone with the effect they immediately regain 100 AHP.

This ability is intended for support, as it allows a creative SCP-173 player to prevent targets from escaping but also makes life difficult for humans if placed in doors or choke points. The pool has an obvious appearance and sound effect allowing humans to react to its presence which can lead them to change their tactics or run away.

Patreon Beta Update
With this announcement the currently ongoing Patreon beta has been updated to include SCP-173 and the access tier has been lowered to $10. Please note that if you aren’t already a supporter, and you consider doing it now, Patreon will charge you for the second time at the beginning of the next month, hence the price cut.

To learn more about accessing the beta you can visit this page of our website: https://scpslgame.com/beta-access/

Community Translators
We would like to mention that if you are a community translator you can now receive access to a dedicated role and channel in the Official Discord. This allows for direct communication between community translators and the official Translation team.

To be eligible for the rank you need to have contributed to our Official GitHub repository. If you believe yourself to be eligible, please contact a current member of the official Translation team on Discord.

On the topic of translations, we also want to mention that Non-ASCII languages should now work properly within the game.

Last Words
As we are getting closer to the release, we look forward to sharing the Parabellum update with you all. We thank you for your continued support of Northwood Studios and SCP: Secret Laboratory.
