It looks like GTFO, the highly anticipated creepy action/horror game unveiled at the Game Awards, will be set in the Chicxulub Crater.

GTFO will have players exploring the ancient asteroid impact in Yucatán.

The evidence was found in the gameplay trailer from the Game Awards. At 24 seconds, the words “Demon Tick” flash, and at 42 seconds, a set of coordinates (21°08’57″N 89°29’32″W) appear.

Those coordinates indicate an area just outside the town of Chicxulub, which in Maya roughly translates as “Demon Tick.”

Credit for the discovery goes to Steam user VEF215.

The Chicxulub Crater was formed 66 million years ago by the asteroid that is thought to have killed off the world’s dinosaurs. A team of scientists recently drilled for rock samples there.

GTFO’s Steam page shows a four-player party tussling with gross, tentacled monsters in a series of gloomy subterranean locations.

The game due out some time this year, and is being developed by some of the people behind the Payday games.
