Editor notes (3)
unusual protagonist — the documents later in the game reveal that the protagonist has been infected by the Thing, but for some reason has not been taken over nor does the blood test reveal it. The document states that this may be due to the protagonist's unusually long and frequent exposure to the creatures.
