The Angry Octopus Bureau of Paranormal Research, aka Angry Octopus, was founded in 1645 by Administrator 001, a benevolent interdimensional entity dedicated to the investigation and documentation of paranormal, supernatural, and other inexplicable phenomena. Since its inception the Administrator’s teams have built the AOBPR into a formidable investigation documentation bureau that captures both the horror and beauty in the anomalous.
Presently Angry Octopus has been contracted by the SCP Foundation to design a “plausible deniability” campaign to further conceal the activities of the Foundation and the existence of SCPs ( anomalies ).
An ambitious proposal has been drafted for this endeavour, incorporating the development of competing fictional pop cultural narratives & tropes that dilute the “authentic” eyewitness accounts of The Foundation and SCPs. Code named Operation “Whiskey Sour”, the Bureau is coordinating logistics to become operational in late 2023. “Whiskey Sour” will be actualized in two stages:
Stage I SCP: Compendia Anomaliae, the authoring of a collection of “concept art” depicting SCP anomalies as characters in a video game.
Stage II SCP: Annihilation, a narrative video game based on the Bureau’s investigation of an anomalous event predicted to take place in 2025 in the British Southwest.
Angry Octopus has negotiated terms to implement Stages I & II on the condition that it be provided unfettered access to Foundation resources and personnel. Additionally, only Angry Octopus will be tasked to documenting The 2025 Event. The proposal calls for Angry Octopus to operate covertly as an indie game developer / art house based in Cornwall, United Kingdom. The Foundation will be providing extensive support for the Bureau’s legend.
