    Hard Reset - surprise announcement

    A new game, PC-only, "hard-sci-fi" cyberpunk FPS from Flying Wild Hog games has been announced and it is already on the horizon: september. No big ads, no previews, bam: RELEASE DATE
    But they got a teaser trailer and while the protagonist looks cheesy the blade-runnery scenery and flying cars make up for it. The studio consists of former members from "people can fly", "CDPR" and City Interactive.
    RPS has a summary

    and a the teaser:

    and some screenshots/info:

    and the website:

    Could it be awesome ? The HUD looks bad....

    Flying Wild Hog - the Polish development house made up of people who previously worked on Bulletstorm, Sniper, and The Witcher 2

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior ex-devs? Ewwww. City Interactive is the antithesis of everything that is CD Projekt. A sweatshop publisher of unpolished, cheap, budget range games with short dev-cycles and incredibly poor QA.

    Emphasis yours? (It appears accurate though...)

    If the developer pedigree is anything to go by, I'm not gonna enjoy the gameplay at all - the visuals look pretty enticing, except for that HUD...

    Unpolished and poor QA...doesn`t it sound just like The Witcher, Unenchanced Edition?
    Ok City I is a cheap clone factory (still managed to sell bucketloads of Sniper thou), but CDPR ain`t no saint either.

    So perhaps the folks that quit CI were the talented ones bored of cloning. Plus CDPR & PCF employees - two shops known for hit games. Not so bad for a pedigree, is it now? Cmon`, give them a chance...

    Also - PC ONLY. What was the last time you heard that phrase?

    (Ok, it will probably be crap & the name sucks, I`m just high on Dishonored vibes ;)

    Look, I'm not throwing the game that we seen next to nothing of nor the unproven developer under the bus. Just saying that it's a bad omen.

    Like always, I'll reserve my judgement until I've actually played the thing.

    It sounds like The Witcher 2 as well, actually.

    If that was aimed at me, I didn't mean it in a bad way necessarily... I just don't enjoy games like PCF are known for, however good they may be. Though we'll see if the game actually ends up playing like that.

    I`m also not a fan of PCF shooters...just was saying they are solid enough and also "hits".

    I got a feeling this game (released in September) might be sort of similar...or maybe more akin to old school FPSs - a straighforward romp through some levels. Not necessarily a bad thing, if the price is right.

    I can't think of a game with more Polish than The Witcher.

    It was called They. It's been either put on hold indefinitely or outright cancelled, can't remember.

    So it's a Doom/Painkiller-esque, old school KILL EVERYTHING shooter, in a Blade Runner-ish setting? I'm interested now.
    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011...reset-trailer/

    If done well, it could prove to be a nice break from all the heavily-scripted post-HL FPSes.

    Could be a nice companion game to Serious Sam 3 (since they're being released around roughly the same time).

    I have to admit, I respect their line on multiplayer, and to some extent PC-exclusivity. Though I kind of selfishly wish the PC had more going for it at this point than graphics... it's a sad day indeed if that's the only reason devs can give for not bothering to go cross-platform. But I really do have to ask at this point what they mean by 'player-environment interaction'. And to note that trading 'on-rails' for 'monster arena shooter' isn't exactly my idea of a good time.

    I hope they'll release a demo!

    In the eyes of developers. Refer to:
    If you want to show some amazing graphics, itís better and easier to develop the game for PCs.
    Of course, excluding other benefits doesn't make them moot, but it seems to show where their priorities lie.

    It only has one bar per side rather than the usual three but yes, looks very similar.
