Fear Effect Sedna has roughly five days left of it’s Kickstarter campaign to raise $22,426 more dollars (as of the time I’m writing this). If you’re at all excited about the possibility of the Fear Effect series to make a comeback be sure to check out the page! If you like what you see be sure to throw developers Sushee some love. It’s getting down to the wire, whether Sushee can pull through and fund the project is in the hands of the fans. I myself am too stoked for words at the possibility that we’ll see another Fear Effect game as the original PSX games are some of my all-time favorites on the console. In order to reinvigorate some hype for the Kickstarter Sushee is offering new Kickstarter rewards.
New rewards include:
- one unique artwork for each tier starting at €35
- awesome papercrafts statuette of Hana
- exclusive access to the beta demo, available this year for each tier starting at €60
The Kickstarter is set to launch on April 12th and Sushee is looking for $100,000 euros, which is equal to $114,120 dollars. Fear Effect Sedna will have the original cast of characters, Hana, Decke, Glas, and Rain return, in a new story that will continue from the second story and the unreleased third game in the franchise. Sushee is changing the gameplay of Fear Effect from the old school Resident Evil style adventure, to a more nuanced version of Harebrained Scheme’s Shadowrun Returns. So in layman’s terms, Fear Effect Sedna will be an isometric adventure title. Sushee founder Benjamin Anseaume said in Eurogamer’s press release of the news that “Fear Effect fans should expect a very different game than the Kronos-developed, Eidos-published original. So players have to expect major changes both in terms of the gameplay and the visuals. – We are a small team of 10 people. We are not Kronos. We are an indie team. We want to make something that respects the series, but it’s not going to be Fear Effect 3. It’s going to be a new Fear Effect with new gameplay. – We want to respect the story and the characters. It was difficult for us to create something based on something we didn’t create ourselves. So we realized we needed help from the former team.”
