Screwfly Studios are working on a new title – FearEquation.The world has been consumed by fog that brings nightmares to life and you’ve been awarded a leadership role on a train trapped in the evil murk, what do you do?
Fear Equation traps you in a carriage full of rusted cranks and old instruments. It’s a weird train, but captures some of the submarine claustrophobia that worked so well in Deadnaut. It’s full chunky analogue machinery that I want to tap and crank. Hopefully, like Soma and Alien: Isolation, Fear Equation can capture the tactile pleasure of operating big old machines.]
Like its predecessors, Fear Equation simulates group behaviour in high-pressure scenarios. You send passengers out into the fog to acquire supplies, plot routes for the train and resolve arguments between faction leaders that can “swing the balance of power”.
