Published

Theory Interactive have released a target release date for their long-in-development puzzle adventure game, RESET. According to a blog post made by developer Mikko Kallinen the game will release sometime in this coming Fall. Kallinen has also posted a variety of new screenshots from the game and has detailed several new features, with an emphasis on environmental physics.

Information in the blog post and the screenshots posted show a game that will have a high level of detail going into its environment. Kallinen describes the systems that will run their dynamic weather and environment features.

RESET will feature volumetric clouds that will move realistically and will cast long distance shadows; as well as having high and low-pressure areas that will break up cloud coverage. The game will also have local rain systems that will allow players to view rain storms coming in from a distance.

According to the blog post the game will also have volumetric water capabilities, which allows structures on land to cast a shadow in areas under water. This also allows the game to have complex wave mechanics which shows larger waves from out in the ocean smoothly transition and break into smaller waves as they come inland.

One of the more exciting features showcased in the new post describes how RESET’s night sky will have an accurate representation of the Moon’s location in orbit and will render all stars in their correct positioning.

RESET is a sci-noir first-person puzzle game that allows players to travel back in time to solve puzzles; the game has been in development since 2012.

You can check all the screenshots and a new tech demo below. Let us know what you think about how the game is looking in the comments below. Make sure to follow OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for all futures updates on RESET.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
