afterreset1It’s not uncommon for Kickstarters to fail, and when a Kickstarter fails, a passionate developer will, naturally, give it another go. Well, after two Kickstarters – a successful one for a prequel comic and an unsuccessful one for an RPG – After Reset, a Black Cloud Studios project, is giving the RPG concept another go, although not much has changed since the last failed campaign. Inspirations cited for this project are the original, isometric Fallout Games and a few isometric Dungeons and Dragons games like Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment. A ton of work has evidently been put into this project’s Kickstarter page, and now that Black Cloud is asking for $35,000 instead of the $900,000 goal set by the last attempt to Kickstart this one, this title might have a chance.

after reset1An incredibly deep backstory is the meat of why this game is remarkable, in addition to an apparent hybrid blend of third-person and isometric exploration. Weapons and settings in-game will portray a realistic sci-fi apocalypse, brought to life by gorgeous visuals, great music, and that story I mentioned. After Resets campaign info constantly sites intentional parallels with the first two Fallout games, touting the same atmosphere, gameplay, and aesthetic (albeit highly modernized). All in-game screenshots place you in a desert, and evidently you can explore as far as you want (provided your supplies will keep you alive that long). You’ll encounter differently aligned factions of various advancement, all with their own unique locations, and explore freely and non-linearly.

If you’d like to check out the absolute plethora of information available on this game, you can visit Kickstarter for screenshots, videos, music, artwork, and a well-illustrated outline of the game’s story, characters, and universe. You can even play a demo of After Reset along with a couple other projects developed by Black Cloud.
