Funny you should say that! I suppose it is in many ways, but at the same time, it's not as if the story is too difficult to come up with. In The Incredibles 2, Screenslaver hypnotises the audience through their TV screens. That is exactly the main storyline for The Frequency Effect.
If you liked that story arc, then you'll love The Frequency Effect as it takes it to a whole new level. The whole process is scientifically researched and brought to life in a multimedia way. You will become hypnotised through the multimedia experiences along the way as you go beyond the screen.
The storyline was never meant to be unique. Instead, it was meant to simply be a dramatisation of reality, so it is no surprise that since it's first inception thousands of articles have been written on the themes it covers. Screen addiction is now one of the biggest challenges we face as a society.
