Reset’s beautiful trailer lets nature run its course

If you witnessed civilization’s end, how would you do it? If you answered "reclining robot suit," you’ve got something in common with the time-worn survivor of Reset, an upcoming first-person puzzle game developed by the two-man Finnish indie studio Theory Interactive. Set to a piano’s haunting tone, the game’s debut trailer — crafted entirely from Reset’s graphics engine — introduces a post-apocalyptic city ruin slowly being reclaimed by nature. A solitary mech walker endures the decades before zapping its pilot’s heart back to life, presumably when reaching the "puzzle time" mark on its internal schedule. Reset doesn’t have a release date yet, but as the trailer’s impressive composition reveals, it’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
