I SECOND THAT.

Random movement: I feel that this would really benefit the game in the sense of having no control over the situation and making the facility seem more "alive". Giving SCP 173 random paths to follow would be good such as to allow things like hearing him actually move down an adjacent hallway or have him open nearby doors(not important doors such as 914 or heavy blast doors). having the entity lose interest or go away from the players position if locked out of a room (example:914's chamber), Allowing random actions or moving to random locations until the entity detects the player. I.E. SCP 173 is on the opposite end of the light containment zone so the entity activates a random path that runs near the player's position. The entity moves regardless of the players line of sight until SCP 173 goes into it's "hostile" state. If the entity is trapped by a lockroom it has a chance to either go in the lock room or move to the adjacent room and continue it's path. Tell me what you think.

Note: As of right now the current SCP 173 A.I. is creepy enough with it being spawned in random locations on the grid-map. But it would be nice if these changes were implemented. It would increase both immersion and fear factor.

Just a random suggestion here, based on the scp containment breach information, and the information on the foundation website, I'd assume the main character would have a little knowledge of 173, and some training to work with it. My idea here is that when 173 is right behind a door and jump-scares you, if you're at low for the blink meter, like 1-5 bars, would it be possible to add a slow-motion reaction ability so you can close the door really quickly so he doesn't get you? I think it would be a pretty neat mechanic, and would make the game more intense for those few seconds. Just a thought.

I think that mechanic would more confuse some players rather than help them. Aside from that, good idea.

I like it, but we already have a basic "tutorial" of a sort when the SCP escapes. The sequence basically shows what it does.
