Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter Neutralized


Title Screen of SCP-XXXX upon initial recovery

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-XXXX is currently held in a standard containment chamber at Site 15. ROM flashes of all known SCP-XXXX versions are available upon request.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a coin operated arcade cabinet entitled Zodiac. Upon initial recovery, SCP-XXXX's gameplay revolved around climbing a tower of moving platforms while avoiding enemies. The game would be completed once the player arrived at the top of the tower.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects occur whenever a person audibly provides critique on SCP-XXXX's gameplay during or immediately after completion of the game. Within two-hours of receiving feedback, SCP-XXXX's gameplay will be anomalously modified according to the feedback provided.

SCP-XXXX has repeatedly disappeared from its containment chamber and re-manifested in arcades and entertainment centers in and around Portland, OR. Research into more effective containment procedures is ongoing.

Discovery: In late 1992, several threads posted on ████████.com by the user zodokcoke that described SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects were discovered by primitive Foundation webcrawlers. Presence of an anomaly was confirmed, and Foundation agents were able to safely recover SCP-XXXX. Archived selections from these threads are available below.

Update (04/22/1999): Following investigation into Incident-XXXX-PK, SCP-XXXX has been reclassified as Neutralized.
