In advance of its release next week, a Hard Reset demo hit the Net to offer a taste of its cyberpunk styled robot-blasting action. The veteran PC developers at Flying Wild Hog have put together a good looking game that definitely taps that old-school PC shooter vibe. But don't take my word for it, give the demo a try. It offers around 20 to 30 minutes worth of action, giving you time to play around with the game's weapon customization system, and search around for hidden areas. You can grab the standalone demo from our link above or from Steam.
But what's Hard Reset about? Here's what the developers have to say:
The world as we know it ceased to exist. Humanity is at the verge of extinction, living in the last closed city of Bezoar. Mankind wages war against the machines controlling vast areas of what became the 'Barrens'. Machines want to control and assimilate 'The Sanctuary' a network that holds billions of digitalized human minds. Our hero, Maj. Fletcher, is a soldier of CLN - a corporation combat unit, established to protect the city. Machines are constantly assaulting the walls of Bezoar. Fletcher moves in when Bezoar's protective barrier is breached.
