  • Hey MatPat, play SCP CB (MANY MUCH HORROR WARNING: You will die a lot unless you use cheats) and then do a Theory on it. The game has an Intro, which; Spoilers!; has D-9341 (You) get taken by 2 Guards (wearing White suits and Bulletproof vests with yellow visors and they wield P90s [an SMG made in Belgium]) to SCP-173's Chamber. In a Laconic Description, 173 is a Statue that can move, but only when you Blink. It is made of Concrete and Rebar, and it's face and Butt have Spraypaint on them. Unsurprisingly, 2 Class-Ds die (Class-D or D-Class, what ever.) and, if you're Lucky, you escape. Can't say the same for ONE guard though, as he shoots 173 and DIES, of a Necc snap (Same as the D bois that die). The game is spooky, essentially. I want YOU; Matpat; to Decode how the game is Randomly Generated.

  • Ship in a bottle, they don't will themselves into physical form, the crew tricks them into thinking that they did just that, and instead trap them in a simulation of the real world, from which the can't escape. (the sentient characters took over the computer and were threatening to kill the crew if they didn't let them out of the holodeck)

  • Hey Matt I know this is kinda late but, episode 21 syncs up with ‘The sign’ by Ace of base. The exact same time and everything. If you sync up the video with the song the guardian is moving in beat with the song and when the lyrics say ‘I saw the sign’ the guardian moves behind the sign. Like said this is kinda late and you probably have heard it but I though I’d let you know if you haven’t. Edit: ‘The sign’ was created in 1992 and released in the us in December of 1993

    Ariel Rocks5Ariel Rocks56 gün önce
  • Even though most people (including me at first) saw the line "Your butt leaves a cavity in the chair." as a harmless and insignificant joke, this could actually imply something. What if Rainer is talking about Paul? What I mean about this is that Paul is being drawn and captivated to solve this game that he spends all his time on the chair, not doing anything other than playing this game, trying to unravel the story behind him. And his reborn sister, Carrie, or better known as Lina. Remember, the part in the video where the recording of the "Ghost room" shows, who we are assuming is Paul, sitting in front of the TV and as MatPat says, he sits in front of the TV playing the game itself, Petscop. Notice, this room is also called the "Testing Room" implying that Paul, is one of the AI's Rainer is still testing. There are most likely more testers or AI's Rainer is training or possibly creating. If Rainer already makes games, what's to say he can't make a AI's too? Belle could've been one of the testers, although, it's hard to see if she "Passed" the "test" since she was taken into the game but was released and set free later on, now, you might think she did good if she was released and was set free but, what if that means she failed and she died in the real world and the game?? It is a certain possibility but we need more videos from Paul to confirm this theory. But that's just a theory... **A GAME THEORY** Thanks for reading :3 Also, watch this end up having no final theory like fnaf, place your bets now peoplllleeee.

I know that some of the events actually happened, but really, is it really possible to cross the digital world to the real world? I'm very confused about this being fictional or true?
