    What's more fun than playing as a monster bent on eating humanity? Well, not much, but today Austin is going to try to top it! The monster you play in Carrion is often assumed to be an alien brought into this facility. Yet, there are many gruesome hints throughout the game that may prove we have all been too quick with our guesses. That's right, the origins of this monster are much more Earthly... and much more horrible. Take it away, Austin!

      carrion deez nuts

    3. Jack Ellsworth

      Thanks for showing off this game! Just finished it and I've come back to watch the episode :)

    4. zul'goth kremvh

      #thought it is most likely a B.O.W

    5. Sado Mars

      So, it's the monster from Phantoms. Didn't need the whole video.

    6. Myu

      My favorite type of scientist. Who has a existential crisis 1 minute into the video

    7. Daniel Santillanes

      "Creature from unknown origin" Me an intellectual: Italian

    8. Adndgoblin

      Sorry dude would play it but I got nothing to play it on.

    9. Lexiis Alicea

      "OMG im so old and im gonna die soon".... i feel you

    10. Guy Guyson

      You should shout more profanities

    11. Quantum Exia

      Damn I wanted to watch a theory on this game but its from Austin the autistic and its ruined.

      1. DerpEdlerp

        How does he ruin it?


      Bro I wanted to play the game but it's 14$ and I don't have steam money

    13. Jaeson Cochran

      I'm sitting at my desk, and when he said my name I got scared.

    14. Noregian Tobz

      So it is basically like a flood from the halo franchise, but originated from earth?

    15. Wizard ish

      It is not an alien, and in fact came from our very planet HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    16. White Light

      The amusing thing with this is that now that it has assimilated human DNA it will maybe just live a normal life, after all if it was growing on the first place it was because he had only instincts but now he can also think and feel complex emotions thanks to the human DNA so why would he just put himself in danger by revealing that he's a monster when instead he can just eat discretely some humans that no one cares about for money and after that live like a human (a lot like in the anime Parasite)

    17. Anigeek 1246

      If the thing learns, then hopefully it doesn’t get to the R34 people, because it can learn some pretty weird tentacle stuff.

    18. Sam Alma

      It is the wall of flesh but weaker


      Wait if you search up the meaning of carrion it says stands for decaying flesh with harmful bacteria maybe the bacteria in the flesh evolved and thats why is red and everywhere it goes its spreading Blood its decaying flesh WITH A BRAIN

    20. SkyLord Gamin

      "I AM SO OLD" Is it okay if I ask your age? I just wanna know.

    21. Your Resident Ginger

      Loved the video but the editing of the avatar was obnoxious

    22. John Gaming *killerpika8

      Im surprised no one thought of the scp foundation

    23. Gina Cartmill

      cant kirby do that basicly

    24. BlackyPurp

      i was so shook @14:35 when he just said my name xD

    25. Alek Wales

      *slowly takes hand off of cat*

    26. rꪖꪀᦔꪮꪑ ρꫀrsꪮꪀ

      “If I got bird DNA and absorbed it I wouldn’t grow wings.” 7 year old me: *cries.*

    27. babybobo1231

      Well considering this thing is based on... The Thing. And several other Lovecraftian entities. Antediluvian and cyclopean were common descriptors used by lovecraft in his stories.

    28. Konki

      1:42 except human flesh :)

    29. MT Box

      I'm getting some Prototype vibes.

    30. C Ramirez

      Why does this creature remind me of Madcap, the deadpool antagonist?

    31. Georgie Pig

      Plot twist: *Carrion is an SCP story*

    32. BlackQuest

      14:34 This is even more spooky when my name is Jason

    33. Andrew Pham

      The berserk page comparably serve because candle kelly slap given a direful fender. pretty, complete language

    34. Aubree Kennedy

      0:44 - 0: 49 LOL

    35. Luigi Dreemurr

      Sorta impressed it didn't start with "Dear Nintendo" as it threw me off. Nice to see you Austen!

    36. MrCrackers

      “Dna isnt like a gameboy cartridge” Amibas: am i a joke to you

    37. stargazer of the planets

      sorry to any jasons watching this

    38. planet maker 347

      ive got a good one, explain how much energy the slayers crucible outputs(its hotter than planck temperature and none of that heat is irradiated into the environment)in one second.

    39. Casey Miller

      It reminds me of a Leviathan from Supernatural.

    40. xMCKx24games

      Could it be related to the giant squid in Puget Sound???

    41. Not Important (psykosis)

      Wow....the title interested me, and you bored me right the hell out of it in less than 5're boring.

    42. Valeriu cb

      I saw this video on release , stopped around the first minute mark since game seemed interesting and I thought I'd play it before watching the video , exams struck and a few months later with the game finally complete I shall watch the video XD , ty Austin for sharing this wonderful game :3

    43. Kevin Morris

      I saw the footage and immediately thought of The Thing from the John Carpenter movie.

    44. EG Spectre

      I’m playing carrion while watching this

    45. snail man

      i'm drinking a 1905 cola and it's making my teeth clean for some reason :\

    46. Of The Clean

      Theoretically, the monster could exist. Heat release could be more efficient in that monster. Based on what you said with the amazing species of fish, and the zombie fungus, who knows where evolution could take it? One thing to note is that the setting of this game takes place in "Frontier-Wastelands". That signifies a dystopian setting, and is probably taking place in the future. That signifies that human technology AND evolution could have developed many things. So in the future, I think this thing could exist.

    47. Lucas Godinho

      I'm a biologist and I was about to start my experimentations with rotifers but I just whatched your video and gave up

    48. Seb Tube

      Carrion 2: What's The Monster

    49. Ariana Vicente

      I'm surprised he got stuck on the keratin thing - even humans can have conditions that cause them to produce excess keratin. Doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to have a mutation that can produce it on demand.

    50. DarthSquid2

      Wish I could get my hands on a copy of AVP2...

    51. Carson B Dot

      For people named Jason, sorry for the scare around the end

    52. TheZombie61

      I don't like this guy

    53. Святослав Бугров

      could someone drop a link or at least the name of the comic?

    54. Zeldaboy

      No worries. I also remember playing AVP 2 in college with friends. I only ever played as the Xenomorphs.

    55. Speedy Raudúlfell

      Austin: If someone just gave me bird wing DNA, I wouldn't just grow bird wings. James Patterson: Hold my beer.

    56. habib netflix

      The fallacious unit coherently cure because criminal architecturally balance barring a obedient statistic. wakeful, abstracted tuba

    57. Archer Dan

      I’m disappointed...the scientific name wasn’t italicized and has improper capitalization

    58. laurin johnson

      the start of every the science video Austin saying nonsense then having an existential crisis and then calming down and finally talking about the science

    59. Harley England

      Wait so it gains what it eats? Is this the flood?

    60. Harley England

      I always thought it was Carnage or something

    61. Coll

      *anyone mentions tentacles* *anime girl in a mile radius: I better run*

    62. ALexandeer SomeRando

      I actually learned a lot from this about dna and stuff

    63. just some random internet dude

      bacteria: lives on land some random algae: hippity hoppity your DNA is now my property

    64. Martin Ferreira

      20 buck == cheap ?? damn in my country that would cost like 35 bucks

    65. habbomirror 123

      meanwhile i never thought it was an alien in the first place

    66. Midasu Kamui

      Isn't it obviously Carnage?

    67. FriedBrilliant69

      I haven't watch the video yet so my guess it's a mutated tumor... Edit: Looks like I'm wrong...

    68. Jyori Ru

      As someone named Jason, my body went cold.

    69. Rob Schneider

      Carrion is one of the most thoroughly enjoyable games I've played in recent memory; good to see it getting some spotlight here.

    70. Lane Ard

      Let It Be Known, At The End Of Carrion, When You Get The Final Power, The Biomass Bunches Together Into A Human, The Same Looking Human As You Play As In The Flashbacks, I Assume At The Beginning, Your Playing As A Blob Of That Human After An Expirement Gone Wrong.

    71. Jay Hobbs

      Kinda creeped out that's my name

    72. Chaos Machinator

      I feel like it's probably the monster from The Thing, or at least inspired by it.

      1. Chaos Machinator

        Btw, John Carpenter's The Thing freaking rules... I feel like this theorist needs to watch it. :) Thank me later!

    73. ZGuy0fSci

      also... "Grey Goo." Who really can say. It would be interesting to see the next step of things. (or red-goo in this case?)

    74. ZGuy0fSci

      "The Game with everything to love in it........................ except an active or ongoing map."

    75. Gerald Yeager

      Absorbs genetic memory from its prey, desire to escape, military & secret organization. Hmm🤔 that sounds like Prototype. Also it looks like Eric from the SCP containment breach.

    76. TRUEN3SS 9003

      2:17 You're right Austin! If the planet is still intact, you lose in Metroid. It must be blown to bits.

    77. Christopher Columbus MLKJ

      01:09 I would play it but I need to pay for it

    78. Cardinal

      You're not a really smart guy, aren't you?

    79. No One

      I hate hearing this guy's voice

    80. eli klein

      I mean, you could make something that is a swarm of smaller insect like things that hatch in an exponential growth model, the new generations would have the genetic "modules"... then just introduce some sort of central control, and like a half-hive, half-living skin suit... I'm just going to stop.

    81. LBNO

      Beautiful game very glad it got a video

    82. Great content

      monster with an unknown origin trying to escape a lab that looks like nothing on earth, well you dint have to make a video friend because its clearly a secret SCP game

    83. Jesus loves you

      4:36 dang it he got me. i turned around

    84. Mothlean

      Carnage simulator

    85. Annie Chandler

      2:43 I'm going to call deep sea creature , they all look like they're from hell

      1. Annie Chandler

        Orrrr not

    86. Ethan McCallister

      “La-BOR-atory” okay Dexter

    87. Isaiah Bender

      Carrions monster is just Kirby’s insides.

    88. 999sailhatan

      There is blc for the game

      1. William Smith

        I don't think it is canon though, just a holiday special

    89. *.Shooting Star.*

      Ya see i woud love to play it but im pretty damn broke Right nowwww

    90. Moeimeal Drafish

      Why i thinks its a alien If you found something on your planet and you have the ability to travel to other planets you should send it there for research so if it does break loose it takes over that planet not yours and in the sence were they find it it looks like in the middle east of northern Africa so if you believe the fact that the piramids were made by aliens then this could be on

    91. Raven Twilight

      Austin: I am so old I'm going to die soon! Great my existential crisis is back

    92. Jimmy Boxley

      Austin!!! Always loved you, and this doesn't change! I played the game, I found that softlock!!! I didn't know of anything else about it, then happened upon this video. Thanks for making this vid, such a wonderfully small world!

    93. deet fer

      has anyone seen a videogame called prototype? prototype is a game where a viral disease escapes, infests Manhattan, etc. etc.. the interesting thing though is that the protagonist, who basically the virus taken a human form, can consume and copy different abilities from enemies, similar to this, as well as memories, and transforms in a very similar way. it is also created by a science lab, and experimented on, which leads the the viral breakout. look it up, and yall will see how similar they are

    94. Lawrence Calablaster

      I invented a monster like this, but I haven’t figured out the “growth & heat” problem yet.

    95. Lawrence Calablaster

      I like Austin’s mispronunciations of scientific names.

    96. Monke High Command TF2

      Can give comic link?

    97. Temlate

      Whats the Carrion Comic name?

    98. Tiny Cacodemon

      I like to think carrion is a species and there are multiple Creatures and there are many in facilities under ground

    99. viktor garaj

      it aint not a alien its a BIO mass of some type of tissue maybe humans but i tryed making a thing like that well it turned out that it was alive i made it from human DNA and other animal DNA making a creepy mass that kept on growing until i went to prison because of it ive waited in prison 20 years
