Hard Reset: Lots of Polish

So I love The Witcher 2 so much I can’t actually express it coherently yet. It’s great! Well, a new studio called Flying Wild Hog, staffed by veterans from CD Projekt Red (The Witcher), People Can Fly (Painkiller, Bulletstorm) and City Interactive (Sniper: Ghost Warrior) is creating a pretty bog-standard but fun looking near-future shooty game called Hard Reset.

Thus far we know little except that it is, to quote PC Gamer:

“Blade Runner, The Matrix, and Painkiller rolled into a single-player-only flour tortilla.”

Also I guess it takes place in the near future after a robot takeover of the city/planet? I’m pretty hopeful about it actually. Eastern European stuff with a budget has actually been pretty great in a lot of instances. If this is anything like say, Metro 2033, it will be well worth a look. In the meantime, look at these screenshots!

Man, what a jerk-bot!

Glowing = Deadly.

Don't worry, the columns aren't load-bearing!
