As a preface, I'd like to say that I hate to submit this among so many fantastic entries in this subforum. However, this is something that I personally find sincerely creepy and thus, I'd like to share it with all of you.
Roughly two weeks ago, I was cruising through my Downloads folder doing my routine sorting (generally just deleting old .exe files, set-up files, etc) when I noticed something that I didn't really recognize. It was a file named "sonic_didn't_go_fast_enough.rape". There was some initial amusement at the concept that the file had the extension ".rape", but the amusement fizzled to curiosity. I checked my Chrome downloading history (which I barely ever clear) and there is no history of me knowingly downloading any file that was remotely related to Sonic, let alone with a .rape extension.
So, naturally, I started diddling with it to see what this file actually is. First, I changed it to a .txt file, and Wordpad just responded with a bunch of jumbled nonsense. I tried an MP3 file followed by a WAV file and still nothing. Finally, I tested it with a .jpg extension and voila! It turns out, it was actually an animated gif file. It depicts a 3D, animated Sonic taking one step forward, then just disintegrating into tons of bloody, fizzling bits. It loops over and over again. Now I thought this was pretty silly at first, it looked so absurd from the standpoint of "Hey, I found this weird file and Sonic just disintegrates in it".
Now, the strange part is that the file, as far as I know, will only open correctly on my computer. I've sent it to friends, I've tried uploading it to image hosters and file hosters alike and every time someone downloads it or tries to open it, whatever program they're using will tell them it's a corrupt file. If you all would like, I can attempt to upload the file (yet again) to prove to you that I'm not trying to trick you or anything. I know, for the sake of a cheap scare, people will intentionally corrupt their purported "cursed files". Now, this is neither a "cursed file" or a cheap scare, this is a genuine curiosity of mine. I've tried searching Google for "sonic didn't go fast enough", "sonic disintegrating", "sonic dissolving", and there are no traces of any file like the one I have on my computer.
Anybody have any ideas?
