Fear Effect series
Group DescriptionFear Effect series began with two games for Playstation (the second being the prequel to the first). The games resemble Resident Evil in overall gameplay mechanics, combining shooting action, puzzle-solving, and survival horror elements, though with less emphasis on survival and more action set-pieces. The unique graphical style of the games combines anime aesthetics with 3D.
A sequel entitled Fear Effect: Inferno was announced for Playstation 2 in 2001. It was supposed to continue the story of the first game. However, in 2003 the game was canceled.
On April 12 2016, a Kickstarter campaign for a new instalment in the series: "Fear Effect: Sedna" was launched. By the end of the campaign, over €100,000 were pledged by Kickstarter supporters, fully funding the project and initially setting the game for a mid-2017 release.
