An Epic Sci-Fi Parody from Toadman Studios, Coming to Most Major Gaming Platforms and PC in 2021
STOCKHOLM – April 23, 2020 – Go boldly into absurdity! Enad Global 7 (EG7) today announced Minimal Affect, a comical sci-fi action RPG packed with heroics and humor developed by Toadman Studios, coming to most major consoles and Windows PC in 2021. Created by an experienced team of longtime sci-fi fanatics, the title is a love letter to a wildly popular entertainment genre, and aims to deliver an authentic, but unexpected, “space epic” with a diverse crew of dubious characters.
“Minimal Affect is our homage to some of the greatest sci-fi RPGs, movies, and shows that we absolutely love,” said Rasmus Davidsson, Creative Director on Minimal Affect. “While the story is ridiculous, the gameplay certainly is not – this is a fully fledged action-RPG created in the art-style of adult animation you know and love. It’s a super galactic tale of space adventure, comedy, and questionable morality.” Warp speed into the absurd on a one of a kind journey across the Milky Way in Minimal Affect! What happens when the rag-tag crew aboard the Star Alliance Balding Eagle blasts off on their maiden journey? Well, things get scary real quick. And the team turns to… their “fearless” leader?
Minimal Affect is a story-driven space adventure with a colorful cast of characters on a quest to save the galaxy once again and get into a LOT of space alien combat. Guide your team, meet new characters, learn new skills, explore side quests and generally do everything you’d expect to do in a third-person action RPG, all set in a vibrant, stylish world that feels like playing a cartoon.
Developed by Toadman Studios and published by Sold Out–both companies in the EG7 group, Minimal Affect will launch in North America and Europe in 2021. The title will be available on most major consoles and Windows PC at launch, with more platform details to be revealed at a later date. For more information, please visit www.minimalaffect.com. This title has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
