The Fabulous Fear Machine
is a narrative-driven strategy game with a pulp horror style, from the creators of Do Not Feed the Monkeys
. You play as a newly minted Master of the Machine, having been called to greatness by its mysterious keeper. To pursue your goals, you must generate and spread fear through the careful cultivation of various Legends—those scary stories, urban myths, and conspiracy theories that lurk in the dark corners of the mind.
What are your deepest desires? If wealth is what you seek, nothing empties store shelves faster than a panic. Power? A fearful man is a loyal one, it’s true. Glory? Well… now you’ve got our attention. Everything you’ve ever dreamed of is within your reach, with The Fabulous Fear Machine
Plant the seeds of fear in fertile ground. Watch and listen to how the media reacts to your Legends. Feed them, then see them grow more powerful and effective.
The job done right.
Your strength is in strategizing; leave the dirty work to your Agents. Send them to explore new locations and infiltrate your enemies, making interesting choices along the way.
An equal and opposite reaction.
Rivals and the forces of good alike seek to undo the Machine’s influence for their own ends. Plan accordingly, or you may find your own Legends twisted into inspirational stories, mascots, or other sugary-sweet clichés.
Think globally, scare locally.
Many Legends are drawn from the unique cultural history of specific countries. Travel the world, and learn what terrors each populace delights in.
A tale as old as time.
You’ll direct the stories of several Masters operating in different regions of the world. Along the way, explore the history of the Machine, its enemies, and the Agents who aid you.
