Hard Reset, new, PC-exclusive FPS announced

So far we’ve gotten a handful of screens and the above teaser, but expect to see more before the game’s release in Sep 2011 — in just two months. There are also a couple of drawings on Wild Hog’s website that we expect are concept art.

While Hard Reset may be Wild Hog’s first game, the thirty-five person company is comprised of old hands from developers such as People Can Fly, CD Projekt RED, and City Interactive, which worked Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and Witcher 2 titles. They’ve even managed to create their own “Road Hog” proprietary engine.

And in case you wanted to know: the term “hard reset” comes from pressing and holding the reset button on an electronic device. It’s considered hard because the user has to physically hold the button instead of resetting the device through software.

That means that in the future, software on robots bent on annihilating mankind is still buggy enough that you have to find and hit the power button yourself. And you kill them the same way you kill my MacBook.

    @LTS I do like that formula myself.

    PC Exclusive. European Developers. That's a day 1 purchase for me.

    Because of the pedigree behind this game, I'm immediately interested.

    This actually strikes my interest, even if my computer has no chance in hell of ever running it. Smart to only start releasing details so soon to release though. Can't get over-hyped, but won't be lost in the shadows of other, bigger games if they play their cards right.

    Oh look, a short-haired space marine with an eye patch.

    I agree with Manguy17. Can't believe its nearly out. I think some of the best games are coming out from Eastern Europe now. Witcher 2, Metro 2033 and ermmm.. well this.

    I look forward to reviews.

    good choice for them to unveil it so close to release, if I had to wait a long time for this i would certainly lose intrest. but two months is easy
