Hey folks. Does anybody know if there's a Discord or a website or a forum where folks discuss Fixed Cam 3D games in detail? I'm really not into Facebook, so ideally I'm not looking for a FB page, etc.

Resident Evil's obviously a key reference, but I'm also looking to talk about stuff like Alone in the Dark, Obscure, Life is Strange, Telltale's Walking Dead, White Night, Tormented Souls, Heavy Rain, Fear the Dark Unknown, City of Lost Children, Summerford, Simulacrum, some of the Puppetcombo games etc...?

I'm just really curious to know if there's somewhere people discuss or debate those games - they're not exactly common and they're often made in the survival horror genre, but I think they offer some interesting challenges in both cinematography and interaction design, while also offering a particular visual language for creators.

Ehh - just think they're cool. =) Any thoughts?

Why not here?

Also games like Resident Evil are a different thing than games like Life is Strange or the Walking Dead.
In Resident Evil or Alone in the Dark the point of the fixed perspectives is more of a technical thing (to save polygons). Both were initially intended to be fully 3d. When it comes to games like the Walking Dead, it's about the presentation, as they try to be interactive stories with 3d graphics. Fixed cam 3d games is not really a category of games, or at least not one that I ever heard of before.
