Trains in games usually come in specific parts of a game (rarely) or are simulation material (often). Fear Equation brings a unique survival horror twist to the first-person and strategy genre.
Screwfly Studios is a company well-known for their zombie survival strategy game Zafehouse: Diaries, but with Fear Equation they take the resource and people management one step further, into full 3D as well. Trains are a perfect fit for isolation and their speed adds to the suspense, both perfect fits for the story of the game, as it’s about a mysterious fog outside and a destination of salvation on the road.
But the road is paved with strange occurrences and people who believe in different things and have various abilities to help. Staying on top of things, managing both the machinery and the 150 passengers is essential for success. Unlike so many train simulators, one moves about the train in first-person. Sending out people to gather resources and finding clues to what is going on via radio broadcasts creates a tension that is both unique and terrifying. From the first looks of it, the graphics are also quite good, while the sound effects add to the confinement terror.
