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!

I bet the rotifers often diminish themselves by sticking in a bit of alien DNA at random, image a coder doing this, sometimes it works but often it just breaks stuff. Also viruses have given humans random bits of other organisms DNA before.

He completely glossed over the moss and ruins part, as he was assuming this game takes place in the same time period as us. I feel like the game's world was already overrun and the monster eventually starved out from having eaten like 90% of life. Then like 2000 years later after humanity recovered, the company finds this old ruin and takes all of the tech and samples and say that they made it. Which kind of explains why they are still using helicopter drones and simple mechs as well as much more advanced tech like antigravity attack drones and forcefields, as well as those guards that you can't eat but still spout blood when you kill them which i can only assume are cyborgs. Anyway just my headcannon...

Have you heard of the lava creature. This is weird living black ooze. Also the items that are in your body that pull apart the DNA and distributed. Look at also the fastest developing eggs or insects. Consider how carnivores that eat a lot of animals are able to regrow their teeth for a lizard its tail. But then go into the actual conscious body. There is no such thing that we understand unless you go into the movie Lucy. In it she takes over parts of her body until she has complete 100% conscious control over any faculty of her body capable of reshaping from different forms changing what she metabolizes and eventually warping through time which is weird. She also creates a smart organic computer. If you haven't seen Lucy you better watch it and then and you video based on that understanding. Has control over how fast are Nails grew based on how materials We Gather. If we could consciously control the parts of our body that makes the genetic changing. And really there's nothing to say we cannot develop that ability. This game is not science fiction at all. What happens when you tell your muscles to just simply start pulling in all different ways. Muscle structure of a tongue from a lizard becomes your arm and you have many of them? Also it is possible to be changing your body structure without being warm. Look at jellyfish in the Mariana Trench. Are they warm when they flutter about? Consider that an octopus is smart throughout any part of its limbs. You only scratched the surface

No Genestealers originated from tyranids. Infecting one survivor from a recent attack with a genestealer virus to control their mind and infiltrate a planet. This individual will become a genetealer patriarch who will spread the infection. Overtime the dependents of the infected will take on tyranid features. Some small and passable for human others are born as unholy abominations And the tyranids don't care where u came from they r able to consume and use all DNA. There have been Tau and Eldar genestealers before

I mean, humans could never build on to anything. If they find an ancient alien facility, or decrepit old human facilities, they can't explore it unless it already has levers and metal scaffolding and bulkhead doors. There is no way for scientists or explorers to add new things to old structures. Completely impossible. Also, if something is described as "coming before a flood that wiped a large portion of humanity off the face of the earth" and you say "this couldn't be around at the same time as humans!!!1" you're just ignoring the definition and stating that scientists know the Old Testament was all lies and that none of the events ever happened. This is the opposite of science. Horridly incorrect 'science' is not a good way to start a 'science' video.

I wonder if the imposters from Among Us were like this, that would be so cool and so scary. Maybe whenever you kill another crewmate as the monster imposter thing, you could either gain their DNA and turn into them like the morph mod or maybe you could unlock DNA stuff around the map. That would be so cool! Multiplayer Carrion, make it happen devs!

On the note about genetic incompatibility “Remember, genes are NOT blueprints. This means you can’t, for example, insert “the genes for an elephant’s trunk” into a giraffe and get a giraffe with a trunk. There -are- no genes for trunks. What you CAN do with genes is chemistry, since DNA codes for chemicals. For instance, we can in theory splice the native plants’ talent for nitrogen fixation into a terran plant.” - Academician Prokhor Zakharov, “Nonlinear Genetics”

Austin! If this game is pulling from Apopocryphal Lore than the antedeluvian human technology in that apochrypha is written as being extremely advanced, well past simple agriculture. The Lore includes metalurgy, magnetism based tech, Electric based energy sources, complex mechanisms and machinery. Some even have medical descrptions that infer more advancement. The lore is rich for anyone who wants to come up with a fantasy game like this.

Read pretty far down and saw a lot of comments comparing it to monsters from other games and movies but none comparing it the "The Thing". A few comments mentioned it appears to be multiple organisms with a sort of hive mind, that combined with the biomimicry capabilities is very similar to The Thing.
