Demo for Indie PC Shooter Hard Reset Now Availableby Craig Getting on September 9, 2011 1:10 PM EST
Hard Reset comes from Flying Wild Hog, a Polish developer made up of talent from People Can Fly (Painkiller), CD Projekt Red (The Witcher) and City Interactive (Sniper: Ghost Warrior). You play an Army veteran tasked with defending humanity from a growing robotic threat.
In an effort to best serve their audience, Flying Wild Hog chose to make the title PC-exclusive and it shows. Their proprietary engine is capable of some truly stunning visuals, and the combat – full of circle-strafing and back-pedaling – harkens back to older id Software shooters. It also includes more modern weapon customization to keep things fresh.
Hard Reset releases at $30 next Tuesday, but if the brief demo wins you over, you can save a little cash by pre-ordering for $27.
