Fear Effect is returning with Square Enix's permission

And it looks like Invisible, Inc.?

Over two years ago, Square Enix announced its pitching-and-publishing platform called The Collective, where it encouraged other developers to take a swing at IPs such as Gex, Anachronox, and Fear Effect. Today, French studio Sushee has announced that it's going to be making Fear Effect Sedna, a new game in the series that looks to retain the same aesthetic while switching to an isometric perspective.

Sedna will have its own Kickstarter page soon, but Sushee's website has a small description of what we should expect:

A new adventure starring Hana, Rain, Glas, and Deke. A brand new adventure, from the streets of Hong Kong to the cold world of Greenland. Lead them in isometric landscapes, combine their abilities to fight your way through futuristic underground stations, underwater research facilities, icy caves and Inuit spiritual realms.A new adventure starring Hana, Rain, Glas, and Deke. A brand new adventure, from the streets of Hong Kong to the cold world of Greenland.

Five characters will be controlled at the same time in strategic combat, which isn't incredibly similar to the fixed-camera survival-horror/action that Fear Effect is known for. The change in perspective brings to mind Invisible, Inc., but that is by no means a bad thing. I'm curious to learn more when the Kickstarter page comes online. I remember being terrified by the first game, but it's been sixteen dang years since then. Hopefully this means we'll see that new Gex game that Jordan wants so much.
