Origin: [From Carry.]
Carrier is a survival horror video game for the Dreamcast, notable in part for being fully 3D - then still a rarity for survival horror games, which mostly displayed 3D characters over pre-rendered backgrounds. In Carrier, players assume the separate roles of an investigation team that was split up from a surprise attack. A cancelled sequel for the PlayStation 2 titled Carrier: The Next Mutation was once planned for release.
