Solve Puzzles With Your Past Self In Reset
We’re hearing a lot about independent “Kickstarter” funds starting up nearly everyday now, with aspiring developers all trying to get funding to make their dream games become a reality. Reset is not one of these games. In reality, Reset is the work of two individuals. Two people that look like they’re working their asses on something special.
Right now though, there’s really not much information about their debut puzzle title, Reset. However, what little bits of information there are point in the direction on something son quite unique, but still highly interesting.
If you head over to Theory Interactive, the developer’s website, you should be able to pick up on a few things that Reset is about. Reset’s official website gives hints about “a strong emphasis on story and atmosphere.” It also starts mixing words that really don’t make sense together, such as “single-player co-op.” Sorry, what?
Apparently, this points at Reset’s main puzzle mechanic, where players are able to rewind time and them co-operatively solve puzzles…with themselves. Yes, I’m sure you’ve seen this before, and anyone who played Blinx on the original Xbox will immediately remember how this mechanic could be used in various interesting ways. This is what makes Reset so intriguing.
The game’s debut trailer does little to try and showcase this mechanic, but it does a fantastic job of setting the scene for where all of this will take place. Note that all the footage comes directly from the game’s unique engine, just showing how hard these two developers have worked on this project. Consider me interested.
