Pulp Strategy Game The Fabulous Fear Machine Announced

A narrative-driven strategy game that challenges players to conquer the world through fear, Fictiorama Studios, Shudder, and AMC Games will release The Fabulous Fear Machine for the PC in Spring 2022.

This title is set up as a single-player, real-time strategy game that features a retro horror comic style. Players take the role of a newly minted “Master of the Machine,” generating and spreading fear through the cultivation of various Legends. These Legends are scary stories, urban myths, and conspiracy theories that have made themselves home in the dark corners of the mind.

According to Vice President of Games for AMC Clayton Neuman:

“AMC Games’ next title brings us back to our horror roots. The Fabulous Fear Machine is the ultimate manifestation of why we tell scary stories. It explores the tales we all grew up hearing as kids, and the thrill we get from sharing them with others. We’re so excited to be partnering with the award-winning developers at Fictiorama and our colleagues and Shudder to deliver for players the power of urban legends… that they may spread and continue to scare the bejeezus out of us all.”

Fictiorama added:

“With this game we’re not just exploring the subject of urban legends as an essential element of culture and folklore all around the world, but also reflecting on the huge power these tales can hold over a population. Working with the horror experts at Shudder and AMC on this process has been a blast. Just how deeply are we all influenced by these fables? In The Fabulous Fear Machine, we answer that question by turning scary stories into strategic tools… and then we place them in the hands of players.”
