Innovation Arctic Base is a sequel toĀ Innovation Research Labs. It is built by Rolijok and programmed by madattak entirely.

The game consists of an underground baseĀ in the Arctic where you do experiments as a scientist or patrol the labs as a security guard, fending off infected individuals with signs of zombification. In the game, there is two GUIs, a shopping icon, and an orange and blue icon. Pressing on the shopping icon the store will pop up consisting of countless items/furniture for player labs/plots, weapons, inventory. You can buy items with the current currency 'funds'. Next to the shopping icon is the orange and blue icon, which you use to change teams.

Teams

Scientists

Scientists are one of the two teams a player can choose, however, players spawn naturally in the scientist team.

A scientist can operate on machines and do experiments plus go into scientist only zones. The disadvantage of scientists is that they canā€™t wield weapons like security other than a basic pistol which can be found at the public armory and a zombie taser for self-defense.

Security

Security are the opposite of scientists and can wield many weapons like a pistol, machine disinfector, and a rifle. They can go in security areas and operate on cameras.

The disadvantage of being a security is that you cannot experiment on machines. Unlike the last game though, where you have to be in the security group, you can join the security team for free without needing to be in the group, however, being in the group does give you a free weapon.

Weaponry

The weapons in the game do not drain on clips, however they must be "reloaded" after a certain number of shots.

Labs / Plots

Labs are plots strewn across the facility that players can personally build in through the use of Lab Upgrades. These upgrades are furnishings that can be purchased from the in-game store menu, and vary from pure aesthetic purposes to fully-fledged functionality.

When players enter an unclaimed lab, a menu will appear that grants the option to claim it. Once claimed, the player's lab will load in, and they will be able to enter "Build Mode" so long as they remain within the lab. Build Mode lets players place Upgrades, change the colors of previously placed Upgrades, as well as return them to the player's inventory for later use.

When the player leaves the server, the lab is cleared and made available once more. It is not possible to unclaim a lab without disconnecting.

Machinery / Laboratories

There are threeĀ main machines in game, the Spatial Manipulation Chamber, the Mutation Lab, and the Form Assimilator.

The Spatial Manipulation Chamber

The Spatial Manipulation Chamber is based in a large area with three doors, and scientists can change the subject's head size, width and heght. Size altering will affect the user's health and speed; the bigger you are, the faster you are and the more health you have, while shrinking the player works inversely.

The Form Assimilator

The form assimilator is a series of tubes, surrounding a central tube that can be accessed from all sides.Ā A control panel is available on the side of the room, with two levers titled "Power" and "Activate", an array of numbered buttons, and a neon blue button. The power button will cause a hollow cylinder to drop around the center of the machine, locking in the test subject. Pulling the activation lever will cause them to hover above the ground and be held in place. The scientist can now select one of the 6 numbered buttons to alter the subjects appearance. Pressing the blue button will execute the form assimilation, and subsequently morph the player. A player can be morphed more than once, but cannot be turned back into their former selves unless through the use of the Mutation Lab's cloning function. In Tube #1, there is a bomb with robotic legs, and robotic eyes. If a player transforms into this form, they will explode soon after transformation, yielding the "Hot Headed" badge, and killing the player. In Tube #2, there is a female human dubbed the "Zombiologist". Tube #3, housesĀ a humanoid dinosaur,Ā tube #4 features a (thankfully non-explosive) robot, whereasĀ tubes #5 and #6 are empty, and upon selecting them at the main control panel, nothing will happen. It can be assumed they will be filled at a later date.

The Mutation Lab

The Mutation Lab is split into several rooms, the collective of which is simply referred to as "Genetics and Mutation." The primary machine is accessed through a wide room, and administered via a control panel in an adjacent room that onlooks the machine through a large glass window. The control panel has several functions; Proteins, Zombifying, and appearance alteration. Proteins alter the players speed, jump height, and health, and are separated through four different colors; red, blue, green, and orange. Red slows the player while raising their health, blue speeds up the player while lowering their health, green increases jump height and lowers health, while orange lowers jump height and increases health. Depending on what proteins were selected, and the intensity of each choice, the player's skin tone will change. ZombificationĀ turns players into a zombie through the use of "Prion ZMB-13." As a zombie, a player cannot use any of their tools, and will have their animations updated. Appearance alteration gives the player the option to either Clone or Hybrid the test subject. This will do nothing unless a player has saved their appearance through an alternate machine located in the same room as the control panel. Cloning will make the subject look exactly like the player who saved their appearance, and Hybrid will mix the two appearances. Similar to the Form Assimilator, this machine has a power button and an activate button. The power button boots up the machine, causing it to emit a loud humming sound. Activating it will shoot a green beam that connects to a player in range of the machine, raising the pitch of the humming noise, moving the playerĀ to the middle of it, hovering them above the ground, and locking them in place. Deactivating the machine frees the player and returns the pitch of the humming to its former state,Ā whereas powering off the machine entirely cancels the humming and disallows players from activating it until the power is turned back on. If a player is not in range, the lever will pull to halfway, then revert to its former state.

Transit System

The train or otherwise known as a 'tram' is a vehicle that travels all through the map via a large tunnel with interlocking doors. It should be noted that these are counted from left to right. No matter the direction it is going, it will stop at each location, opening its two doors and letting passengers out/in.

Each train stop features a sign that counts down the amount of time it will take for the train to arrive, until it eventually says the arrival time is "imminent." It takes one minute for it travel through all locations, which means if you miss it on the first stop you'll be waiting two minutes for it to return. All of them feature a small bridge, some bridges opening in closing to connect the two sides of the room. It is possible to glitch into the train by turning sideways and pressing against the wall, until eventually you will be teleported onto one of the 12 seats.

Security Station

The first station serves the Innovation Security department.

Main Station

The second station serves the Spatial Manipulation chamber, visitors' center,Ā and access to the main surface elevator.

Genetics Station

The third station server theĀ Genetics and Mutation area.

Core Station

Events

Core Meltdown

Currently, the core is non-functional, and therefore cannot be overheated to the point of meltdown, however, it is confirmed that it's being actively worked on, and it should be implemented somewhere around Fall 2018.

Prion 13

Prion 13, otherwise known as ZMB-13 or simply virus is a highly contagious infection that spreads through direct contact among player individuals. The symptoms consist of zombie-like animation, inability to use tools and able to spread the virus among other people. A ZMB-13 outbreak can be created if a scientist infects a subject in the mutation lab and quickly turns off the machine, letting patient-zero escape. However, most infections can be dealt with easily with high-security supervision, but sometimes if the subject is small, fast, and jump high, the chances of an outbreak can be reasonably high.

Main Major Infection Spread Route

The main major infection spread route is when patient-zero escapes and infects everyone in the area of the mutation lab, then making his/hers way to storage a, possibly infecting a couple more people and the train stop near. After that, the patient zero with his/hers infected swarm will make their way to the resize machine through the ice tunnels or by the train. Once at the resize machine or second train stop, more people will be infected.

This is until the infection makes it way near the main security department and plots where countless people are infected. Only a few people in that area may barricade their block with a shelf or hide in the main security department. Meanwhile, one zombie could head to the clothes shop infecting one person or so, before heading to the elevator infecting a common amount of one or three players until infecting the base entrance.


Rarely any zombies are found in the other areas, due to the fact they are less populated with players, however, if it does happen then only a small amount of infected will be seen. Many minutes later the security will fight back the infection with the help of fellow scientists near the main security department and plots. One or two minutes later, the resize area will be cleared, until remaining zombies are cured at the main entrance or mutation lab.

Surviving the Infection

  • A few people would go inside their plot and block the door with a shelf. Inviting more survivors inside will help you defend at zombies at the window if they manage to glitch in. Another way is to hide in security and scientist only areas due to the fact zombies cannot go in.
  • Grab a weapon. It is very recommended to get yourself a gun to defend off the zombies. For security, head to the main security department, and for scientists, there is a public armory next to it.
  • Use cameras. Using cameras will help, and you should also guide security to finding the zombie threat and to eliminate it before it is too late.
    • Cameras will also help you avoid areas with possible zombies.
  • Purchase a taser. A zombie taser will help in case if you are dealing with fast mini zombies.
  • Go to the core area, because there is barely any zombies.
  • Wait for security to wipe out the zombies, then you'll be safe.
  • Guide people to safe areas, because if they are in zombified areas, chances are that they'll become infected.
  • Check surrounding areas for any zombies.
  • Use the curing machine in the genetic lab or a disinfector in a plot.
  • Don't go in highly populated zombie areas, unless you are well equipped with weapons.
  • Do not go risk letting zombies in your plot, even if they say "I won't infect you."
  • If you are getting chased by zombies, don't yell at an AFK person in their plot blocked up about 3x.
  • Don't think about saying "Yay the zombie apocalypse is over, chances are that another stronger infection may appear."
  • If you have a secure door, use it for the door as zombies will be completely unable to get in at the cost of nobody in your lab as it is locked to you.

Trivia

  • Unlike the first game, you can be security regardless of being in the Innovation Security group
  • The Machine Disinfector is the most expensive weapon available to players.
  • The Shotgun deals the highest damage out of any gun, so long as it is shot from close range.
  • The outside of the base is likely based off in the first game where you teleport somewhere in a cold densely place with the same buildings.
  • The game receives hundreds of visits each day and is currently in Beta.
  • In order to enter the main facility, players must go through an elevator, that passes through several floors. The first of which is an ice cave, which features the words "The cake is a lie!" just outside of the players' view. This is a quote in reference to "Portal" a 2007 game created by Valve.
  • On the far outside reaches of the map, there is a lab floating about.
  • Throughout the lab, the player can find messages between the game's two developers; Madattak and Rolijok.Ā 
  • Directly behind the elevator entrance is a snowman wielding two Hyperlaser guns. This was made available as a Lab Upgrade as part of the 2017 Christmas event, but is no longer available.
  • The second tube of the Form Assimilator houses the Zombiologist, a character who exists within Innovation Lab's action figure pack.
  • The Taco Teleporter and Burger Machines have a random chance of creating a stick of dynamite, identical to the ones created by Vending Machines.
