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. 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? 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.

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. How far would you go to get your life back? To prove your innocence, how many crimes would you commit?


Vie Games has launched a KickStarter campaign to raise the funding needed to deliver 7FRAMED at the quality level and length of the play the brand deserves. To do this the studio needs to hire more experts. It already has all the infrastructures and the required technology to achieve their goal. The studio’s campaign has a goal of $300 000.00, with $11 171.00 having been raised at press time. This title will be on PC.

President and founder of the successful, pioneering animation studio VIE Workshop, Dave Massicotte is broadening his scope to build a video game studio, VIE Games. He is joined by veteran game industry colleagues to leverage state of the art motion capture technology and their combined decades of experience to create fresh, surprising, and unexpected games. When the road from imagination to playable is limited only by the time it takes to suit up and capture human performances, the studio’s ability to both experiment and deliver innovation is remarkable—on par or exceeding that of the best of AAA production houses.

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)
