What's more fun than playing as a monster bent on eating humanity? Well, not much, but today Austin is going to try to top it! The monster you play in Carrion is often assumed to be an alien brought into this facility. Yet, there are many gruesome hints throughout the game that may prove we have all been too quick with our guesses. That's right, the origins of this monster are much more Earthly... and much more horrible. Take it away, Austin!

    It’s carnage all the powers and abilities, the constant hunger for blood, the color, the original story of it being alien, I mean even the name carrion is a synonym for carnage, just saying.

    Read pretty far down and saw a lot of comments comparing it to monsters from other games and movies but none comparing it the "The Thing". A few comments mentioned it appears to be multiple organisms with a sort of hive mind, that combined with the biomimicry capabilities is very similar to The Thing.

  66. Slothures

    OK so if this theory stands and it doesn't want to consume to many humans so that it doesn't "kill itself" then why do we mainly just consume flesh of humans. If maybe it had full control over its own biological "mechanisms" so it can choose what to adopt and what to turn then that would make some sort of sense.

    It was created from humans taking dna and putting it into that cylinder and humans, being as dumb as they are, didn’t make a good containment cell and underestimated the monsters power and it broke out. That’s my theory.
