Go boldly into absurdity! Enad Global 7 (EG7) today announced Minimal Affect, a comical sci-fi action RPG packed with heroics and humor developed by Toadman Studios, coming to most major consoles and Windows PC in 2021. Created by an experienced team of longtime sci-fi fanatics, the title is a love letter to a wildly popular entertainment genre, and aims to deliver an authentic, but unexpected, “space epic” with a diverse crew of dubious characters.
