Description of The Thing

Read Full Description

The key to John Carpenter's 1982 scare flick, The Thing, was its incredibly effective build up of paranoia. Sure, it had the goop and gore scattered throughout, especially once "The Thing" really started to spread its, er, substance around. But it was Kurt Russell's performance when he was dictating a message into a tape recorder -- one he hoped would be found by a rescue party if no one survived -- that really conveyed the pure fear. You can never go to sleep. You can never ease that grip on your weapon. You can't stand close to the people who only hours before had been your comrades. And there is absolutely no end in sight.

Just 20 short years after the film was released, Universal Interactive has seen fit to bestow us with a game tie-in. This sort of thing usually sets off alarm bells with gamers early given the track record of titles based on movie licenses. However, unlike some movies, The Thing is perfectly suited to a creepy, action-adventure game. Set in an isolated Antarctic outpost, this game has the potential to scare you not with what you see, but when you don't see anything and yet you know the real danger could be standing right next to you with a gun in his hand.

The good news is that The Thing for PC lives up to a good amount of that promise. Its first smart decision is beginning the story soon after where the film left off instead of doing a predictable remake of the same plot. You play Blake, commander of a military team that has been sent in to investigate the disappearance of the scientific expedition - sounds a bit like another infamous sequel about a nameless "Alien", doesn't it? The Thing, for those who don't know, is an alien creature that has the ability to transform into a replica of whatever it touches, but it does so in a process a whole lot more gooey than the T-1000 Terminator.

The Thing's interface is actually not quite as self-explanatory as you'd first imagine for a third-person action-adventure. To help you out, rather lengthy tutorial tips pop up throughout the game whenever you need to be taught about a new device or action; jarring at first, these become infrequent soon enough, and you'll be thankful once you've learned the interface.

Movement is the standard keyboard/mouse configuration, although for no apparent reason (other than it being developed simultaneously for console platforms), your free-look is limited to the horizontal axis. That is, unless you toggle first person mode, which in turn prevents you from moving. Strange, but at least the game's design has taken into account that you won't be looking up or down too often, so it doesn't put much of interest anywhere but on eye level. PC gamers will feel this title screams to be first-person by default, for immersion purposes if nothing else.

The thing that sets The Thing -- sorry! -- apart from other games in this genre is having the ability to command up to four members of your squad, or as is usually the case, any persons you happen across that are willing to go with you. The same trust/fear mechanic that was prominent in the film plays a relatively large role in the game, too. Everyone has a trust meter that needs to be at least halfway filled for them to follow you around; gaining trust from someone is often a simple matter of giving them a gun, although some secondary missions require you to prove you're human by killing a certain number of Things. Later in the game, you can also perform a blood test on yourself to gain trust - The Thing is made up of millions of individual living cells, so Thing blood reacts violently to just about any aggravating chemical you could throw on it.

The gameplay itself is a compelling mix of survival horror games like Resident Evil, with simple adventure elements and puzzles and your bog standard fast paced shooter. The pacing has been tuned well, starting slowly, keeping all the aliens out of sight, then slowly revealing the carnage as you explore further, until you eventually come under attack on a regular basis. The Thing itself comes in two basic forms; little spider-like crawlers that are dispatched with one quick shotgun blast, and bloody humanoid monstrosities with varying amounts of misshapen heads and claws and tentacles. The latter kind takes multiple hits, and as in the movie, need to be burned to kill off permanently.

Team members also have various uses other than just being another target for evisceration. Some have the ability to heal you and other team-mates, and others are engineer class and can fix various power boxes and override door locks. You're required to interact with the environment often, accessing logs and codes on computer terminals, picking up notes and even controlling CCTV cams hunting for clues.

Visually, The Thing excels. The attention to detail in all the environments is extremely high, textures are sharp and the people are hugely realistic, with fluid animation and lip-synced voices. They also react to things around them - point a gun at their head and they'll retort with a lewd hand gesture. If they see something particularly grotesque, they'll even lose whatever meal they last ingested. You know how far we've come in bringing games into the cultural mainstream when non-essential characters start puking without any contribution to advancing the plot. Hey, it spelled success for every gross-out comedy since There's Something About Mary. Audio also matches the high visual production values, creeping you out with all sorts of ambient effects.

The Thing falls short of greatness in two areas. One, it's seriously short. Even taking into account the scattered save points and consequent replay times -- another console annoyance, which can actually be fixed with a registry edit -- you should still be done with this in under eight hours, and there's no multiplayer mode to prolong its life.

Second, while the whole fear/trust element was an admirably innovative attempt at recreating the film's tension, it falls short because it's both quirky and ultimately pointless. There are times where a team member can come up clear in a blood test but only moments later transform into a Thing due to some trigger in the game's script. Generally, everyone ends up becoming a Thing or dying beforehand, so you feel no real loss and the only time it matters is when you can't complete a level because you needed that one engineer alive. There's also no real tension because even if someone is a Thing, once they reveal themselves, you can take 'em down in a matter of seconds.

The game also suffers from a rather nasty bug that remained unfixed in a recent patch. On some machines, including ours, all voice audio was muted during cutscenes, and the only way to fix it was by unarchiving a .pak file in the game's data directory, adding about 300mb to the install size - ouch!

The Thing on its own stands as a slightly flawed, yet atmospheric and alluring action-adventure. Hardcore fans of the film, however, will have fewer complaints and appreciate the touches added by the developer who obviously cared greatly about making a worthy follow-up to Carpenter's thriller. Coming across the actual tape recorded by MacReady and finding out where Childs ended up was a simple, yet brilliant idea to connect the two stories. For an alien that's 100,000 years old, The Thing can definitely hold its own against any other scary creature -- from a game or movie -- that you can throw at it.

How to play The Thing Windows

Read Full Description

The game v1.2 with NoCD has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10, it works fine. You may experience some small troubles when you play the game on modern systems, check our Guide and Notes for details

Before installation - if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - make sure that you enabled DirectPlay if you didn't make it before, read this or this guide how to do it (if you're using Windows 7 or older - just install DirectX from the disc)

Install & play guide:

  • Mount the disc image. You will need the utility for mounting disc image files, like WinCDEmu, UltraISO, Alcohol 52%/Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools Lite
  • Install the game (if autorun doesn't work - simply launch the installation from Setup.exe inside the disc)
  • It is recommended to install the game not in default path, but in some other, non-system folder, like C:/Games/The Thing, so you won't have troubles with fixes
  • After you installed the game - patch to v1.2. All European releases of the game already pre-patched to v1.1, so you need to install only patch v1.2 (please note that German version has separate installer for patch v1.2). If you installed US release - install both patches v1.1 and v1.2
  • Then use NoCD, simply copy TheThing.exe from the archive and put it into The Thing/bin directory, agree to replace original file
  • Open The Thing/bin directory and find TheThing.exe. Right click on TheThing.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows XP SP2" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work in compatibility mode with Windows XP SP2 - try to launch it in compatibility mode with other version of Windows (Win98, Windows ME, Win2000, etc.)

How to play the game in widescreen:

  • The game with patch v1.2 has support for wide screen resolutions, however the HUD will be strecthed, and the game doesn't have support for ultra-high (like 4K) or ultra-wide resolutions. If the game doesn't have support for screen resolution you want or you want to play with correct HUD - use Sui's wrapper, simply copy dinput8.dll & dinput8.ini OR d3d8.dll & d3d8.ini from the archive and put in The Thing/bin directory, next to TheThing.exe. Then open ini-file in any text editor like WordPad or Notepad, and and change Width and Height to your desired resolution. The wrapper requires the game v1.2
  • Also, Sui's wrapper comes with a lot of options, such as an option to enable Anti-aliasing, texture filtering, bump maps (download here), change FOV, etc. Full list of features can be found on project's page, all options can enabled or disabled through ini-file
  • Optionally, if you don't want to use Sui's wrapper or it doesn't work for you - you can enable any resolution by HeX-editing of executable files and changing values in Windows Registry. For full instructions check WSGF page. In addition, you can enable Anti-aliasing and texture filtering for the game in control panel of your video card, for better graphics

Notes:

  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (98, 2000 or XP)
  • It is recommended to install all versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable and NET Framework for the correct work of the game. Also it is recommended to install K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game works on DirectX 8, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • The patch v1.2 adds mouse look in the game, so you can play more comfortable by using the mouse to look around. However, if you enable mouse look in game options - it will automatically disable colored crosshair. And in colored crosshair mode, the crosshair changes the color to red to show when to use the flamethrower, which can be very useful in boss fights. So decide for yourself how you want to play, if you have troubles on boss fights - you can temporarily disable mouse look
  • If you don't see the intro videos or any other videos in game - try to run the game in compatibility mode with Windows 98/ME. Also make sure that you have installed K-Lite Codec Pack, because the game was using Bink Video format by RAD Video Tools
  • You may have problem with sounds on third level of the game, especially if you play on Windows XP or newer OS. If you get that problem - use Sound Fix, also you can try to use it if you have any other sound troubles on English version of the game
  • If you see only the white or black screen when you run the game, the intro movies doesn't work or you have broken menu graphics - that usually happens because of incorrect Windows Registry paths. To fix it reinstall the game or edit Registry paths to the correct ones, read this guide (you can also download Registry Fix from our website, instruction is inside the archive)
  • Sometimes the game doesn't run at all, even if you patched it and all Windows Registry paths are correct. The reason might be in compatibility issues with your hardware. However, putting dgVoodoo files in The Thing/bin directory should solve the problem. If you have that problem - download dgVoodoo files from our website (available in Downloads in this page). That files are compatible with Sui's Wrapper, so you can use them together
  • Some users have a problem when the characters doesn't finish their sentences during cutscenes on game engine. That happens because the game cannot properly read the sound files inside the English.pak in The Thing/data directory. If you get that problem - rename English.pak to English.zip and extract all the files from it, then put extracted folders Animations and Sound in The Thing/data directory. Delete English.pak file and run the game, now cutscenes should work correctly. It is the bug of game engine and cannot be fixed in any other way
  • If you have problems getting through some difficult parts of the game - use savegame files for every level (also mirrored on our website)
  • Or you can enable cheat codes in Windows Registry, in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Computer Artworks/The Thing/1.0 path, cheats can be enabled by changing the 0 values to 1 accordingly, here's the guide how to do that. Also cheat codes can be enabled in d3d8.ini of Sui's Wrapper. To disable cheats change value from 1 back to 0
  • Sometimes the game has cheats enabled by default, and player character is invulnerable. If you have that problem - simply disabled all cheats in Windows Registry
  • Editor Tool for the game is based on Evolva Editor, both games use the same engine. Installation instructions are inside the archive, plus you can read this article for more details
  • The game has some gameplay and graphical mods, you can find and download them on ModDB, also you can download pack of AI-upscaled textures from PCGamingWiki
  • Russian version of the game is based on "pirated" Russian release and includes some graphical mods and fixes (can be selected during the installation). If you have troubles with Russian version - check this thread
  • Here's also similar guide by PlayOldPCGames, you can check it if you have troubles
  • Don't forget to check PCGamingWiki if you have troubles, it's very useful!

Grab this now, before the site took it down, so it can be replace with the remasters.

Don't get me wrong, the upcoming remasters may be good and accessible, but removing the original for archival purpose is a dick move.

Old version is still consider an abandonware.

There's a magipack version available.

Such an epic game, they nailed the atmosphere with this one. Played a lot during my childhood, the defense mission still terrifies me.

Kydavi 2024-01-13 2 points

One of the best survival horror games and one of the only legitimately good movie tie-in games ever made. Picks up directly after the events of the OG movie and delivers a solid tale of paranoia in a harsh landscape. Highly recommended.

TeleFan76 2023-09-30 4 points

I remember 'Borrowing' a copy of this and it crashed close to the end of the game. Decided to buy it thinking there was more and it was just a video ending. Well worth the money anyways. A really good game.

Jurdz 2023-07-07 2 points

Has anyone managed to get this to work on a windows 11 machine?
I have tried every tutorial I can find and all I get when I try to run the game is a black screen with a spinning cursor for about 3 to 4 seconds, then back to desktop.
Installation works fine and game runs on my old XP machine so I know the install files and patches are not corrupted.

Many thanks in advance

How I installed this on Windows 10:

2. Use the No-CD fix

3. Use the patch. Bingo! The game should work now

4. If you want, you can use the sound fix, you can do that

Ok I got it! On windows 11 so for me I downloaded the ISO then unzipped it but before running the wizard download "1.1-1.2 Euro" patch and stick the application inside in the same folder as "The Thing" install wizard. As stated in an early comment make sure you rename the file that ends with "ex_" as "exe" and rename the whole folder as "TheThing_UK".

Mike 2021-10-28 0 point

Is there a way to lock on to targets on the PC version? On the console version you can lock on to enemies, and the important thing is that the lock on indicator changes colors to reflect the enemies' health so you know when they're ready to be hit with the flame-thrower. But on the PC version I can't figure out how to get that target lock so I just have to guess when the enemy is low enough.

Enabling bump mapping

Download and extract Sui's Wrapper to \bin\ directory.
Edit d3d8.ini with a text editor and make sure BumpMapping is set to 1.
Download bump maps and extract them to \data\textures.

PS Sorry! Forgot second link.

RIP Version is nonsense with incomplete directions. Comes with a "The.Thing" file, which isn't explained if it's an archive, an ISO, or whatever. It has filed in it according to my indexer, but nothing to execute a installer, or open the game.

well I love the movie (best horror of all time imo) but this game never encouraged me to play it as there was too many shooting to little non scary monsters, didnt find it as immersive as it could be with a more survial fpp horror instead of a shooter.

Red Hood 2020-10-12 2 points

I never got to play this game as a kid. I love the original movie and the prequel. They are some of the best psychological horror movies in existence. The game I am told does a helluva job capturing that atmosphere. I can't wait to play it. Thank you so much for putting it up here.

SOLIDG 2020-09-01 0 point

This is one of those games I have always heard people say good things about in my PS2 days but for some reason I ended up skipping it back then. I didn't know it had a PC version until know, so I guess I'll give it a try.

What a load of boring bullshit.
Constantly repeating, overwhelming number of opponents, fiddly micromanagement of teammates who are constantly walking in the players fire. And in addition to the shitty micromanagement you are confronted with a shitty UI. The game survived about an hour on my harddrive. Even for free - it's not worth my time.

I need some help. I got the game in a state where I could run it, but every time I try to start it, it tells me I can't because it's not detecting a CD-rom drive. my issue is that my computer doesn't have a CD-rom, it dosne't have any hardware for running CD's or DVD's. is there some work around I could install or can I just not play this?

LoydMongo 2020-04-05 2 points

Seems the file ikernel.exe is named wrong as ikernel.ex_ and thus the install wizard won't work. So what I did was copy all the files from the .ISO to new folder I named TheThing_UK and then renamed the copied ikernel.ex_ to ikernel.exe , after that the installation worked from my new folder. I hope it helps you too!

@BENJAMINGRIMM Because games were usually compressed to fit on CD or DVD, they would unpack as they installed making the installation (or 'rip') larger than the disc contents.
