Minimal Affect is a cel-shaded mix of Family Guy and BioWare

Mass delusion. 

Minimal Affect does not attempt to hide its influences.

A comic sci-fi action RPG, it stars a clone of Mass Effect's Shepard (another one!), and an alien who looks like a cross between Wrex and Jabba the Hutt. Another character is a zebra with Darth Maul markings.

Its animation style looks like a Seth McFarlane series. Its combat... well, it looks exactly like Mass Effect 2.

Minimal Affect is being developed by Swedish outfit Toadman Interactive, and is set for launch on PC and consoles in 2021. Well, it's not like BioWare will release a brand new Mass Effect before then.

I'm curious to see how this one pans out, and frankly how BioWare reacts. Here's a trailer:
