'After Reset' Kickstarter Campaign A Success

by Rainier on Aug. 21, 2014 @ 10:15 a.m. PDT

After Reset is a classic role playing open word game with old school top view, which action takes place in the future on Earth dying slowly after nuclear cataclysm that buried nearly all life on the planet.

Planet Earth. 132 years after the ‘Reset’, the thermonuclear apocalypse that ended human civilization. Around one third of the globe is covered by ‘Yellow Zones’ where the ruins of cities are covered with radioactive dust. In these areas, anarchist survivor groups have taken control where uncontaminated food and drinking water are valued on a par with human life. Another third of the earth is in the agony of the ‘Red Zones’, the epicenters of the deadly anomalies that arose as a result of a nuclear chain reaction in the atmosphere and the morphing of the planet. The majority of life is not capable of surviving in the Red Zones that makes them a perfect home for mutants. The planet is unrecognizable.

Developed with scientific realism and offering a larger playing area than Fallout 1 and 2 combined, After Reset features a non-linear story offering complete freedom of choice, branching story paths and multiple endings. With that freedom of choice the player can totally explore the world at their disposal, the Great Desert (formerly known as Nevada) and the State of Eagle (previously California). But wherever they go the ultimate story will follow them like their shadow!

After last year's kickstarter campaign failed, Black Cloud Studios was not detered and launched a new round of funding last month, which has now successfully concluded raising nearly three times the amount of its $35,000 goal
