The Fabulous Fear Machine is a darkly humorous pulp horror strategy game where you attempt to spread myths and conspiracy theories to fill countries with panic and fear.
Currently in development by Fictorama Studios (creators of Do Not Feed The Monkeys), The Fabulous Fear Machine is a pulp horror comic book styled strategy game where you help a mysterious organisation spread fear, and in return they will grant you your wildest dreams. You spread fear by planting seeds of legends, myths and conspiracy stories that grow and spread throughout the land. You send agents out on missions to help feed and evolve these stories and you also have to deal with rivals who may be spreading their own lies that are counterproductive to yours.
It takes a little while to wrap your head around the intricacies of The Fabulous Fear Machine, but it’s a lot of fun when you get the hang of it and it’s a very timely concept. The pulp horror comic book style works well and there is an odd satisfaction in watching your fear-mongering stories spread through the land. The stories that you spread are pretty wild too, although nothing as far-fetched as 5G towers spreading viruses!
