Time traveling robots in Reset are aging well



Reset still looks good. It first popped up in April 2012 with a quietly captivating trailer and premise: It's a first-person, PC puzzle game that involves a lot of co-op – but it's single-player. As a humanoid robot, players travel through time to solve puzzles cooperatively with themselves, in a deserted future city.

Today's video offers the first look at gameplay in Reset. For a game about mechs, the future and time travel, it appears to be a patently somber experience. We can't shake the feeling that something terrible happened here, and something even worse might occur if this robot can't fix it.

Reset comes from Alpo Oksaharju and Mikko Kallinen, two artists that make up indie studio Theory Interactive. The game is on Steam Greenlight Concepts and the team plans to launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign soon. We can't say anything about the game itself yet, but Theory Interactive certainly knows how to craft a nice trailer.
