SCP-012 or "The Bad Composition" was a euclid class SCP in SCP: Unity. It was added in Version 0.5.5, and was removed in Version 0.5.8.
SCP-012 was retrieved by Archaeologist K.M. Sandoval during the excavation of a northern Italian tomb destroyed in a recent storm. The object, a piece of handwritten musical score entitled "On Mount Golgotha", part of a larger set of sheet music, appears to be incomplete. The red/black ink, first thought to be some form of berry or natural dye ink, was later found to be human blood from multiple subjects. The first personnel to locate the sheet (Site 19 Special Salvage) had two (2) members descend into insanity, attempting to use their own blood to finish the composition, ultimately resulting in massive blood loss and internal trauma.
Following initial investigations, multiple test subjects were allowed access to the score. In every case, the subjects mutilated themselves in order to use their own blood to finish the piece, resulting in subsequent symptoms of psychosis and massive trauma. Those subjects who managed to finish a section of the piece immediately committed suicide, declaring the piece to be "impossible to complete". Attempts to perform the music have resulted in a disagreeable cacophony, with each instrumental part having no correlation or harmony with the other instruments.
In-game (no longer applicable)Edit
SCP-012 is located within it's containment chamber. If the player wanders too close to SCP-012 the player will be locked and forced to walk to SCP-012 and then they will proceed to try and complete SCP-012 with their own blood while the player mumbles insanely. If the player is wearing SCP-714 then SCP-012 will have no effect on them and they will be able to walk around in it's containment chamber.
- In version 0.5.8, SCP-012 was removed due to the devs believing its current implementation to be poor. This feeling was shared by many players.
- Prior to being scrapped, the development team had discussed the idea of having the actual composition play throughout the speakers in the facility causing several effects in a future update. However, this idea was scrapped, and along with it SCP-012.
- While not canon to the original article, the dev team has mentioned (and in the case of SCP-173, already done) rewriting and adding onto SCP articles.
- The door in 012's chamber opening to force the player closer to it was an action performed by SCP-079 in the original game, though SCP-079 itself is not implemented into the game yet.
