Sightings and Sounds[edit | edit source]
The capsules are large, pill-shaped devices that appear to be made of some kind of metal. They are seen sparingly in some areas and numerously in others. Some are half-buried in the ground of an open field and others have smashed into buildings and homes and caused considerable damage in their wake.
The capsules are motionless devices and a large mystery in the beginning. The sound coming from some of the capsules is unknown, though it may be the sound of gas still being released.
Origin and Purpose[edit | edit source]
Partway through the game the player comes across what appears to be a large warehouse that stores the capsules when passing the area where the First Visitation happened.
During gameplay, it is shown that the capsules fell from the sky, seemingly without warning. According to one old character in the game, It was only after the capsules fell that the First Visitation began. The old man describes the gas released from the capsules as affecting everyone differently. But even he doesn't know, what they are, where they come from, or why they were deployed.
There are two kinds of people in the game scene, human and the turned. Watch closely, you can find that normal humans have red eyes, while the turned black beings have white or bright eyes. Continue playing, you will notice that several "human" have white eyes. Apparently they are not turned, so what happened on them?
Late in the game another character reveals the capsules contain some kind of medication. It appears people were selected to be exposed to the 'medicinal' gas in order to see its varying effect on people with varying personalities and aptitudes. The test was successful, despite the fact that most people contact with the capsules or gas were turned to Zombies. Some exceptions seem to have elevated immune systems, intelligence, and strength. The character considers that these capsules were designed to jumpstart some form of advanced human evolution.
When reaching the final stage of the game the player will learn of what actually happened during the Visitations.
