Here we have yet another cult minimalist indie horror game under the name SCP-087. How this game came to fruition makes as little sense as the product idea - but we know it's meant to scare the heebie-jeebies out of its players. Maybe the fact that it is shrouded in so much mystery adds to the game's atmosphere?

When it was released - it was not obtainable on traditional gaming platforms. It came as a ZIP file that you would unlock and run as an independent application. Honestly, the beginnings of SCP-087 sound like something out of the Creepypasta forums - so now, this has me intrigued. What's this neverending stairwell game all about then?

What the Hell was That?!

SCP-087 was created by a niche of game developers known as the SCP Foundation, specializing in paranormal fiction stories. It's pretty quick to identify that this is a cult game. No doubt it was meant to be played among frequenters of the SCP website. That explains to the unsuspecting user why this game is so nonsensical. The game is literally an endless staircase situated in the dark. The player will continue down an eternal flight of steps in pitch black - with nothing but a flashlight. Your objective - to find the mystery of what lurks at the bottom of the stairs. Throughout your slow journey, you will hear many skin-crawling sounds with a few jumps that will make you turn your shoulder. Even points whether you want to progress any further.

If you don't want any spoilers - don't read any further. If you are just curious about the game - I could save you an investment in time. Absolutely nothing happens. On the surface, this game is pointless. The whole playthrough is procedurally generated, so you never hit an end - you'll just spend a long time being creeped out before you give up. There's no combat, no narrative, or any sort of objectives incorporated into the game. It's as minimalist as they come - and indefinitely something that could be enjoyed if you have the correct information going into it.

Stairs Forever

SCP-087 is just an exchange of ideas from The SCP Foundation forums. The positives come from the concept - and how this game was so shrouded in a guise that it made users very intriguing to play. It also came at the right time where jump scares and minimalism was all the rage. Outside of that original cult, it spawned from - there's nothing for anyone to enjoy.

5

The game is a very stripped down version of Amnesia: The Dark Decent - just without any assets or purpose. Clearly, the developers are trying to make a point and an addition to the SCP fan base. I honestly don't get it and wouldn't encourage anyone to try this out unless they were obsessive about Creepypasta content.

Pros:

  • The mystery that surrounded the game built a playthrough without any development

Cons:

  • It's not actually a game
  • It doesn't take long before you realize its just an endless staircase with creepy noise
  • If you're not informed about The SCP Foundation, it won't make sense
