Enad Global 7 (EG7), Sold Out, and developer Toadman Studios have announced sci-fi space epic comedy parody action RPG Minimal Affect.
As stated in the press release, the game’s creative director Rasmus Dadisson explains how the game “is our homage to some of the greatest sci-fi RPGs, movies, and shows that we absolutely love.”
It sees the maiden voyage of the Star Alliance’s Balding Eagle ship, manned by a rag-tag crew lead by a traumatized captain (Captain Creed, according to the official website).
Other crew members include bug-like alien Larry (the ship’s longest serving crew member and engineer), 200-year old psychic K’iara, and Wesley (or Redshirt as everyone calls him).
While the game’s visual style may remind many of Rick and Morty or simillar adult comedy shows, Dadisson states “While the story is ridiculous, the gameplay certainly is not – this is a fully fledged action-RPG created in the art-style of adult animation you know and love. It’s a super galactic tale of space adventure, comedy, and questionable morality.”

Warp speed into the absurd on a one of a kind journey across the Milky Way in Minimal Affect! What happens when the rag-tag crew aboard the Star Alliance Balding Eagle blasts off on their maiden journey? Well, things get scary real quick. And the team turns to… their “fearless” leader?
Minimal Affect is a story-driven space adventure with a colorful cast of characters on a quest to save the galaxy once again and get into a LOT of space alien combat.
