7FRAMED – Mirror’s Edge Meets Murder Mystery


One part murder mystery, one part Mirrors Edge – episodic action-adventure 7FRAMED is a Kickstarter one-to-watch.

Vie Games has taken to Kickstarter to fund its ambitious motion captured episodic action-adventure, which focuses on the ever-present threat of corporation manipulation and the loss of free will.

“7FRAMED puts you in the role of not one but seven citizens targeted by the groups that would control them. Set up for crimes you did not commit, 7FRAMED allows you to play from not only the perspective of all of the victims but other characters in the world. Every shift in point of view brings new insights into the agenda of the enemy and brings you steps closer to solving the mysteries of why you? Why were you targeted? And every character you play brings you closer to the realization that your characters must be pivotal players on the global stage even if they do not know it yet.”, reads the Kickstarter page.

“Released in seven episodes, 7FRAMED is set just five years in the future, eerily touching on the modern issues facing us all–issues such as privacy, terrorism, and the inability to make a difference when opposing entities much larger and powerful than ourselves. And the game immerses you in this terrifying, plausible world in the most believable ways possible.”

The impressive motion capture makes 7Framed one to watch, which make use of VIE’s “revolutionary motion capture, facial animation, and character creation software”. It also promised to deliver a AAA experience that melds both survival shooter and parkour platformers into one experience. So think Mirrors Edge meets murder mystery.

With 25 days still to go on the pledge campaign, 7FRAMED is a new name on the Kickstarter block. It currently has currently raised just over $10,000 (CAD) of the $300,000 goal, which VIE says will be used to ensure the game is delivered with quality and length the brand deserves.

The project is being lead by Dave Massicotte, who has previously worked on titles like Halo 3, Assassin’s Creed II and Thief.

Gameplay elements:

-Single player campaign
-Multi-player online mode in which you frame other players.
-All shooter ingredients plus many challenging puzzles.
-Hiding from the other character system
-Perspective mission (replay the mission from someone else point of view) This is going to be one of the best feature. (Cross path mission)
-Adaptive story line (Player influence of the environment to have impact on other episodes)

Expect to hear a lot more about this game as the Kickstarter campaign progresses.
