After Reset RPG is based on three pillars of the good old days of RPG - you can expect:
A POSTAPOCALYPTIC ATMOSPHERE, developed with scientific realism and with more places to explore than Fallout 1 and 2 together had;
A NONLINEAR STORY with freedom of choice and a ton of branches and endings, which influence the whole setting even beyond the game you play;
HARDCORE MECHANICS in the best traditions of DnD and SPECIAL, in which even the process of character creation stretches out into prolonged enjoyment.

- A POSTAPOCALYPTIC ATMOSPHERE -

It’s our future. The golden age of humanity, globalized under the aegis of the United Governments. The century of corporations, of unbelievable scientific discoveries and hard overpopulation. A century in which extraterrestrial artifacts appeared. A century of conflict, which ended just as it never began. A century in which our planet was burned by nuclear fire, and a century which buried humanity and almost all life on Earth under radioactive ash.

Despite the scale of the tragedy, several millions from a population of over 17 billion were able to find refuge in specially equipped underground bases and over hundreds of years to expand them into fully fledged underground megalopolises. And so, after more than 100 years of hiding under the earth, the United Governments noticed that the ecological situation on the surface had improved and made the decision to come back outside and begin the reconstruction of the world.

All the same, as suddenly became clear, the burden of this holy mission had already been taken up by a civilization born of the flames and chaos of the apocalypse. A civilization that was markedly behind the United Governments technologically but made up for it in their larger numbers and better-developed survival instincts. Hundreds of isolated descendants of Survivors are beginning to unite under the banner of the New Confederation to stake their claim on the Yellow Zones and drive back the war machine of the old world that’s slowly crawling out onto the surface. For the Survivors, it’s a replay of the American Revolutionary War against the British Empire. For the United Governments it’s the Iraq War all over again, threatening to turn into a new Vietnam.

The action in the game After Reset RPG takes place starting 132 years after the apocalypse, called the Reset in two large areas of the former North America: The Great Desert (what was once Nevada) and The State of Eagle (what was once California).

- A NONLINEAR STORY -

Here is your story. When it begins, you find yourself on the floor of some kind of laboratory, completely naked and surrounded by shards of broken glass and spilled liquids. You don’t know anything or remember anything, neither about yourself, nor about the place where you are. Apart from medical instruments and some kind of installations, there’s no one around, and the only thing in the laboratory other than you is a female voice. It brings you to by saying “Wake up, Commander.” From that moment, everything is in your hands. Where to go, what to do, whether to listen to the voice or not, to try to figure out your story or not – it all depends on you. I don’t want to spoil too much of the game for you, so I’ll only add one more thing – no matter where you go, or who you decide to become in the expanses of the Great Desert, your personal story will find you. Like in Baldur’s Gate 1, you’re totally free to explore the world, but the story will follow you like your shadow.

- HARDCORE MECHANICS -

When making the game mechanics for After Reset RPG, we brang together the very best of the mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons edition 3.5 and SPECIAL. If you’ve played Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights or Fallout 1-2, it’ll all be pretty intuitive for you. Like in the original Fallout, we named our mechanics SACPIC after the first letter of all the main stats of your character. And similarly to Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights, it can promise you a long, thought-out character creation process with a true multitude of combinations and interesting descriptions. And yes, don’t forget that of course, God made everyone different, but Colonel Colt evened the playing field. Good or bad, level three or seven, a lot of strength or a little – in the expanses of the wasteland, what matters is who has a gun.

In our way for the visual part of gameplay, we’re trying to make it all as close to the classics of the genre as possible. The same top-down view, the same shabby interface, and the same global map. A never-ending space to expore, limited only by your water supplies, skills and some feats. In terms of fights, we’re often asked: will the game have a turn-based system or real-time. I can safely say that the game will be rule-based real-time (like Neverwinter Nights, Baldur’s Gate, and Planescape: Torment).

And of course, speaking of game mechanics in After Reset RPG, I want to note again the features like Quanton Synchronization which will require an Internet connection. I’d also like to remind you that the game can be played just fine without being connected, but if you activate it you’ll get the maximum enjoyment from the game. This includes bonuses such as your choices influencing the whole setting of the After Reset world, and unique encounters, and access to other goodies like parts for a cyberdog companion etc.

so far it looks like its a fallout type game but like to know the story mode if any or what all you do. Looks ok so far but need more information about the game

Looks like potential for two things, 1) Something that could surpass Fallout, but that is a long way off and it is a high goal I don't see being to easy to reach. 2) failure and a waste of money that would be played to train people how to play survivalist games similar to fallout

Hmm.. maybe.

I backed it on Kickstarter and I am sad that it failed. I hope the prologue you are going to sell will generate enough interest and funding to do it all. Good luck.

Эта игра и вастланд наверное единственные игры, которые жду с нетерпением и обязательно куплю (а не скачаю с торрента как обычно). Правда деньги есть отлько на стиме, так что держитесь ребята, в суде по упадку РПГ жанра вы последние на ком он держится.
