Indie Game 7Framed Launches On Kickstarter

mini-orbyCreated by Montreal’s VIE Games, 7Framed is an episodic shooter where ordinary people are framed and forced to do actions against their 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.

Why were you targeted? 7FRAMED utilizes revolutionary motion capture, facial animation, and character creation technologies to deliver a AAA game experience that feels like both a contemporary survival shooter and a parkour platformer.
