I have never, ever been hacked over Roblox, and neither have any of my friends. Hacking can be scary. One incident, however, was far beyond as scary as any hacking catastrophe could be. It was not hacking... It couldn't be.
An Ordinary Saturday
One fine Saturday, my friends and I got on Roblox. Just like any other Saturday, we also all got on a Skype call so that we could communicate through voice chat.
Vanossfan1109> Hey guys! What we playin'? BTS? Natural Disasters?
(Me) GREATEST1TFG> I was planning on playing that Counterstrike clone, but I just found a weird game. Its title is Fun Land with an underscore between those words, but it doesn't look very fun... It's just a black box as far as I can see.
RandomGuyYellow> That sounds weird, man. Also, kind of... interesting. We should totally check that one out.
Vanossfan1109> We DO have all day, so why not mess around a little bit? LEZDODIZ!
GREATEST1TFG> Ok, why not.
After we all waited for a near instant loading time to pass, we all just jumped and ran around this small black room. Suddenly, a timer started counting down. The timer had a label that said: Game Transport
Doosbox> Game Transport? What the hell? Where is it taking us?
GREATEST1TFG> They are sending us to a different game... Maybe it's one of those super secret games I have been hearing about. That is a pretty weird countdown timer label.
DevintheDev> Whoa... that's not a normal.
GREATEST1TFG> Not a normal what?
DevintheDev> Shut up.
RandomGuyYellow>I guess we will just have to wait and see.
After counting down, we were all sent into a different game. This game featured a city, and a very well made one at that. Everything was rather dark, but there were dim street lights sparsely placed. The soft glow of the street lights had a very strange effect, as the light was an eerie shade of gray.
GREATEST1TFG> Where are you guys? I can't find you.
Doosbox> The real question is WHY DO WE HAVE BAZOOKAS?
GREATEST1TFG> We all have minimaps in the top right corner, let's all meet in the center, and figure out what's going on.
RandomGuyYellow> Or we could leave...
DevintheDev> I tried that. I can't close the game.
Vanossfan1109> Wow, tryina ditch us, ey?
Doosbox> What are we going to do now?
GREATEST1TFG> I guess we have to play. I don't see any reason not to. ARE YOU SCARED?
RandomGuyYellow> Not in the slightest.
GREATEST1TFG> Why did you want to leave then?
RandomGuyYellow> In all my years of playing Roblox, I have never felt so... empty inside while playing it.
Doosbox> True. I am getting that feeling as well, I'm just not scared.
Vanossfan1109> Hahaha! Nice try a**hole!
GREATEST1TFG> What happened this time?
Vanossfan1109> This thing tried to kill me. I have no clue what it was because of the darkness, but it looked really freakin' tall! I blasted it with my bazooka. It ran away. E-Z.
We all found each other in the middle. We still didn't know what was up, but we were not just going to shut down our computers. We had to learn what was going on out of sheer curiosity more than anything.
GREATEST1TFG> Maybe this is a hunting game... If that thing was really tall, I bet it's REALLY strong.
RandomGuyYellow> Well, it DID survive a bazooka shot.
DevintheDev> Whoever kills this thing gets five dollars from every other player!
GREATEST1TFG> Game on!
And thus, we all split up to hunt that thing down.
Doosbox> Hey, I got a flashlight!
GREATEST1TFG> So did I!
DevintheDev> So everyone else got one?
GREATEST1TFG> Vanossfan, you are a little quiet. What happened?
Vanossfan1109> Its face is freaking horrifying. Don't look at it.
GREATEST1TFG> So you are... SCARED?
Vanossfan1109> You don't even know, man. Imma blasting this b****, but it will not turn away. It's acting aggressive as hell. Let me tell you, this thing is like ten feet tall OH FU
Silence filled the room for a few minutes.
GREATEST1TFG> Well... that just happened.
DevintheDev> What even happened?
RandomGuyYellow> Even though I am pretty sure he's pulling a joke on us, I am almost pissing myself right now.
GREATEST1TFG> I found a way onto the roof. Maybe we have to hit its h- WAIT... IT CAN"T BE A JOKE... WE CAN'T LEAVE.
Suddenly, I looked down over the edge of the building only to see it stiffly crawling up the building. That was truly the most terrifying moment of my life. I used a mod to where I could zoom in on stuff better, like Opti Fine in Minecraft. I zoomed in on that thing to take a better look.
After I looked, I was sorry. It is very difficult to describe the way that thing looked, but I will try. Instead of being blocky and silly looking, this thing was thin and had very long thin appendages that were stiff as iron rods. The thing's face was the worst part. Instead of eyes, it had hollow sockets with a little bit of blood trickling out of them. Suddenly, my screen had some condensation on it for some reason. I wiped it off, and I suddenly noticed what it was. That condensation was not water, but blood.
I knew that this could not be just a really good roblox player who created this, but... I didn't want to just let there be no reason for it. It couldn't have been the supernatural... Could it? Regardless, I shot that thing right between the eyes. The thing flew off of the building and started to fall down.
RandomGuyYellow> I found that building you were talking about with the-SHI
Three of us were left. Dev, Doosbox, and Me. That number was quickly lessened.
Doosbox> I bet somebody died in REAL LIFE!
GREATEST1TFG> As scary as that would be, I don't think so.
Doosbox> Why is there condensation on my screen?
GREATEST1TFG> RUN! IT'S GOING TO GET YOU!
Doosbox> WHY IS IT RED?
GREATEST1TFG> Damnit. He never listens! (I hit the table.)
DevintheDev> I can see if I can hack us some really good weapons to kill that, but you HAVE to protect me.
GREATEST1TFG> Sounds like a solid plan. Come to the top of the tower. It will be easier to protect you there.
DevintheDev> Ok, where is that?
GREATEST1TFG> Bottom left corner. Hurry.
Thankfully Dev made it to the top of the tower. That was when we began to fight back.
The Final Battle
After lots of defending, Devin finally managed to finish applying the script for a custom weapon. It looked like a staff with a blue crystal on the end. He also gave me one.
GREATEST1TFG> Still going to give me five dollars?
DevintheDev> If you can kill it first!
Sadly, I was not going to be getting five dollars anytime soon. It's not that Devin killed it...Because I did. That thing dropped from the ceiling of the map, killing him instantly.
I killed that thing and started to cry. It was both that of sorrow and thankfulness. I called my friends to make sure they were okay, but nobody answered. The next day, I found them lying in hospital beds in the ER. Their parents broke the news to us. They all had concussions, cracked ribs, and various injuries. However, one thing was similar for all of them. They described being violently shaken and grabbed to the point of being crushed after touching that thing. For now, I don't know what to call that other than terrifying.
