SCP-D38813 is a creepy-pasta narrative game for the Playdate console in which you play an SCP Foundation researcher attempting to unravel the mystery of an anomalous Playdate. The device has enciphered classic articles from the SCP wiki, and you'll have to crank to crack the cryptograms and solve the mystery.

Long time fans of the SCP Foundation as well as new folks looking for a creepy thrill can enjoy dozens of tales on their possessed handheld, as it cosplays a text mode terminal, complete with satisfying retro computer bloops and keyboard clacks.

Just, you know... go outside and touch grass every now and again. Director Prescott is a little worried that you're getting obsessed with this thing, and doc Prasad has been making concerned notes about your mental state. I would say it's not the end of the world but I won't, because everything we do here is actually the end of the world; still, take it easy champ, we need you in one piece to save the universe.
