If you are a fan of Post Apocalyptic RPG games then After Reset RPG may just be the game for you. After Reset RPG is a Kickstarter project by Black Cloud Studios out of Los Angeles, California, which has been inspired by games such as Fallout 1 & 2, Baldur’s Gate, and Planescape: Torment. The game will be available for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
In a future where governments unite and the golden age of humanity is reached, extraterrestrial artifacts begin to appear all over the world. The artifacts lay dormant until the 12th of May; That is when everything changed. The population is forced to retreat to underground cities as the world they once knew is buried under radioactive ash. After Reset RPG takes place 132 years after these events, in two large areas: The Great Desert, what was once Nevada, and The State of the Eagle, what was once California.
The player will explore more than 50 unique locations of remains of what was once civilization. In their travels they will encounter groups of cannibals, raiders, and caravans of traders. After Reset RPG offers a non linear storyline with several branches and endings. Not only will the player’s choices effect how their story plays out, but also the whole setting of the entire After Reset world. The player will experience unique storyline branches based on their decisions, as well as encounters from the decisions made by other players in the community.
The gameplay mechanics of After Reset RPG are similar to that of Fallout 1 & 2, and Neverwinter Nights, wanting to capture the true feel of an old school RPG. The game will also use the same top-down view style camera angle as the classics in the 90’s RPG genre. Black Cloud Studios also promises an in depth character creation process with several possible combinations.
As it stands right now $5,625 of Black Cloud Studios’ $900,000 goal has been raised with 29 days left to go in the campaign. Backers will receive special rewards and in-game content based on their pledge amount, which they will have until December 11th to contribute. If the goal is successfully reached you can expect to see After Reset RPG by the end of 2015.
