See what happens when you die in 'Master Reboot'


Wales Interactive offers an answer to one of the oldest questions to ever boggle mankind's mind: What happens when we die? In the futuristic, simplistic, sci-fi world of Master Reboot, a person buys an island in the Soul Cloud, and when he dies the data of his consciousness and memories are transported to the cloud.

"The game starts with you being uploaded to the Soul Cloud, but something has gone wrong and you wake up on a beach not knowing who or where you are," Wales Interactive Assistant Community Manager David Banner writes. "It's up to you to explore, solve puzzles and try to piece together your life and death. With Master Reboot, we wanted to invoke an uneasiness for the player, a haunting quality as you journeyed through the game. There are certain levels where you catch glimpses of things: shadows, movement out of the corner of your eye, and there are always undertones of something not quite being right."

Master Reboot is heading to PS3 in February, after launching on Steam in October. It's horror in a freaky neon world, with simple 3D graphics and ... a Weeping Angel? Seriously, watch that video closely. And don't blink.
