The terms alien abduction or abduction phenomenon describe "subjectively real memories of being taken secretly against one's will by apparently nonhuman entities and subjected to complex physical and psychological procedures"

For years, people have been hearing mysterious, foreboding, mechanical type noises around the Earth without explanation. The source could never be identified. It was blamed on machinery, electronics and even the Earth’s moving tectonic plates, but not a single scientific mind could locate the cause of this strange phenomenon.

One day the source of The Hum was revealed, and all the conspiracists were wrong.

Check out this chilling trailer

"What you see in the trailer is actual in-game footage, and I already had most of the stuff programmed thanks to The Hum’s big project. Abductions has all the logic elements ready to be used depending on our game design decisions, so we had only to focus in art-side of the trailer." Dev Team

In 2005, the FBI sent homicide detectives to investigate a series of unsolved disappearances and deaths in Nome, Alaska. Most of the victims were Native villagers. This was made into a movie recently, titled up as The Forth Kind.

Between the 1960s and 2004, over 20 people mysteriously died, or vanished. In 2006, the FBI concluded that "excessive alcohol consumption and a harsh winter climate" were to blame for the disappearances. This was not for a second believed by anyone including the reporting FBI agents however, the bureau did not want to cold case these events or cause further fear or hysteria of 'The Unknown'.
