Asset-ID: A-069

Form-factor: Inanimate

Threat Level: Green

Active Protocols: A-069 is to be contained in a standard holding cell measuring 10m x 4m x 10m at Site-17. Testing on A-069 is open to all personnel with prior clearance. A-069 is to be powered off when testing is not taking place. Prizes produced by A-069 are to be described, photographed, then stored, with documents about prizes stored in filing cabinets organized by their point values.

Description: A-069 is a "Dunk 'N Alien™" model Skee-Ball machine manufactured by Innovative Concepts in Entertainment, Inc. A-069 operates as a standard Skee-Ball machine of its make and model, with the exception of a lack of dispensed tickets. Instead, a prize based on the player's score is dispensed from a large "Prize Port" installed to A-069's side. The source of A-069's prizes is unknown, as the inside of the "Prize Port" is sealed until a prize is dispensed, and no storage area for prizes has been found when A-069 is disassembled.

A-069 is also host to A-069-1, a sapient entity composed of plastic and various metals in the likeness of a mechanical alien. A-069-1 exhibits an often unpleasant personality towards players, and will attempt to convince people to play a game on A-069. Once play is initiated, A-069-1 will cease communication with the player until their prize has been dispensed. Most of A-069-1's speech amounts to insults, but it will congratulate the player if they get a high enough score or manage to dunk A-069-1 by hitting the moving target present in both A-069 and standard "Dunk 'N Alien™" machines.

A game can be activated on A-069 by inserting 50 cents. A-069 takes only US quarters as acceptable payment. A-069 and A-069-1 enter a dormant state when not powered, making containment fairly easy. A-069 is only to be played in testing sanctioned by level 3 personnel or above (see Experiment Log 183).

A-069 was recovered at an arcade inside the ███████ Boardwalk, where numerous complaints were being filed over a "rude" Skee-Ball machine. A-069 was put into Initiative custody under the guise of routine maintenance. A standard model of a "Dunk 'N Alien™" machine was sent in to replace A-069.
