thefalofgyes-coverRemember After Reset? Think back a couple months, it was an RPG set in a post apocalyptic world that felt very Fallout-ish.  When we last spoke of the game we said it had “...everything you could want; cool post apocalyptic setting, non-linear story, tons of character customization, an enormous game world, solid graphics, and some very impressive concept art.”  Unfortunately the rest of that article focused on what was going wrong with the Kickstarter campaign as it had only been able to raise a bit over $40,000 of its $900,000 goal.  As promising as the idea of the game was, there were just too many questions as to the state and quality of the game itself at the time.  We closed the piece by stating “Hopefully this isn’t the last we’ve seen of After Reset, but its crowd funding days may be numbered.”

And now here we are with another After Reset Kickstarter, but things are different.  The campaign for After Reset: The Fall of Gyes isn’t for a game at all, it’s for a graphic novel set in the same universe as the game.  While we don’t normally cover anything other than games on Cliqist we’re known to make exceptions from time to time provided they’re game related.  This newest After Reset campaign looks to be taking all of the best parts of the original campaign;  an interesting world, fantastic art that’s gotten even better, an intriguing storyline, and did I mention the fantastic artwork?

thefalofgyes-art04From the looks of things the team at Black Cloud are still working on the After Reset RPG, it’s even worked into the reward structure,  but it looks like they’re letting it cook for a bit longer before putting it out to the world again.  In the meantime the Kickstarter campaign for the After Reset: The Fall of Gyse graphic novel looks to be coming along nicely. Look below for some of the artwork that Black Cloud was kind enough to send us.

If you’re looking to back something other than a game, something we’ve done 3 times out of 81 counting Fall of Gyse, then check out the new campaign.  The funding goal this time around is a comparatively modest $12,000 so that the book can be published this summer.  You have until March 21st decide whether or not to be a backer.
