Black Cloud Studios have today launched a KickStarter campaign to reboot their old-school open-world post-apocalyptic RPG for PC, Mac and Linux. Back in November 2013, Black Cloud Studios launched the first Kickstarter campaign for its title. Its initial goal was around $900K and as you may have guessed, it did not meet that goal. Therefore, the company rebooted its campaign with a smaller goal. Not only that, but After Reset RPG will be now released in an episodic form.
“Coming to decision to split the game into chapters with smaller goals in order to release the Prologue this fall, Black Cloud Studios is going to KickStarter with new content, an upgraded build of the game, daily updates and smaller goal of $35,000.“
After Reset RPG is described as a classic open-world RPG set on a future Earth that was ruined by a devastating nuclear cataclysm and nearly ending all life on the planet.
Developed by grown-up fans of classic hardcore RPGs such as Fallout 1 and 2, Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment and born out of the disappointment of the cancellation of Fallout: Van Buren a decade ago, After Reset RPG has been created by Black Cloud Studios to fill the void for a classic old-school RPG that hardcore fans of the genre have been clamoring for.
Developed with scientific realism and hence aiming to be the first hardcore science fiction video game in history, After Reset RPG features include:
• A post-apocalyptic atmosphere, with more places to explore than Fallout 1 and 2 together had.
• A nonlinear story with the freedom to choose from a ton of branches and endings, which influence the whole setting even beyond the game you play.
• Hardcore game mechanics in the best traditions of D&D and SPECIAL, in which even the process of character creation stretches out into prolonged enjoyment.
