Brain Candy and GameTrailers have released the debut teaser film for Brain Candy's upcoming sci-fi strategy title, Fray, The game is a simultaneous turn based strategy game that the developers say will eliminate the waiting involved with most turn-based games by introducing simultaneous play.

The film is directed by and stars the game's technical director Robert Falce. Over 8 months in the making on a shoestring budget, the short film depicts the game's dystopian setting and gives viewers the very first look at one of the most promising independent game productions of 2011.

Fray is a gritty sci-fi game set in 2098, a world where civil society is on the brink of collapse. Three mega-corporations vie for control of the Earth and its remaining resources. In a world where most human interaction is confined to cyberspace, mankind has created a variety of virtual reality modules in which to escape the harsh realities of life and experience the full range of human emotions once known by generations past. Some modules are created for human enjoyment while others have been created to serve more devious purposes. One of the most pivotal virtual environments is the combat module, Fray.

Players will enter Fray with a squad of four characters, each with their own specialties. Outfit your squad with a variety of weapons, items and abilities to prepare them for combat. Once inside, Fray is played in turns, where all players choose their actions simultaneously. When actions are chosen, or the timer has run out, the action then plays out in real time cinematic fashion with dynamic camera angles. By virtue of the simultaneous action selection system, the delay and frustration of most turn-based strategy games has been eliminated.
Fray is scheduled to be released sometime this year. Click on the links below to learn more.
