#theorythursday

Yoyoyo! Trying to find time to keep you guys informed is a bit of a task for our two man team, so let’s simplify things! As of today, we are launching a lighter and more frequent communication method called ‪#‎theorythursday‬. Every Thursday we’ll be posting a pic and a blurb somehow related to the development. Here is the first one \o/

In Theory… Progress.

Posted by

Hey’all!

Quick sitrep: Good progress has been made since the beta demo. We are launching our proper (the one where you can actually vote) Greenlight campaign at the end of this month accompanied by new footage and an optimized version of the demo. Game launch schedule will also be revealed at that time. Thanks again to all for the feedback and your patience regarding the technical issues.

We’ve entered a competition at a brand new game discovery site called playfield.io/reset to participate this years Gamescom. Want to help us showcase Reset at Gamescom? Then sign up at Playfield and give your tumbs up for Reset :) The competition rules can be found here.

Oh and here are a couple of wip shots of the lonely  F(o)under Monument commemorating all the brave souls who sacrificed themselves for the sake of the island. :D

Funders ahoy! Check your emails. Everyone else, there is nothing to see here. Please step back, there is nothing to see here. ;)

A small break in deving is in order to bring you this, our very first piece of fan art. Yesterday we received this unreal amigurumi 02. There is so much win in this, totally bad ass and adorable at the same time! It’s so full of awesomeness that we can’t even. Huge big thanks to Liisa Ollikka for this totally amazing present!!!!

In Theory… Einstein was right

Posted by

Heyyyyy guys and gals!

Phew! Sorrryyy for being quiet again. Einstein’s Theory of Interactivity (see what we did there) predicts that time slows down as you move closer to a deadline. We can confirm that this does indeed happen. Hold on to your hats just a little longer. Beta demo is on its way.

In Theory… Funder beta demo is on its way

Posted by

Hi folks!

As the meme goes: “No time to explain!” The funder exclusive beta demo is only a few weeks out, so if you were a part the IndieGoGo campaign you will be contacted with the download information after Christmas, yay \o/

In the meantime, here’s a screenshot of a gameplay element featured in the demo. :)

In Theory… Release update and DK2

Posted by

Yoyoyo what’s happening dudes/dudettes!

A quick update is in order. It’s been a tight couple of months here at Atelier de Théorie (the latest nickname for our newish office space). About the release of Reset: Although we haven’t given an exact release date we’ve been talking about a Christmas release. Despite our best efforts we must overshoot Christmas for the release. The main reason is that we want to create a great game for you and we don’t want to cut important corners just to make the Christmas deadline. We think that it is better to delay the release a bit than release an unfinished game. We haven’t set a new release window yet.

The Oculus Rift DK2 kits finally arrived and oh boy the improvement over the DK1. We’ve implemented support for the DK2 and are working on improving performance. As you know rendering high quality stuff for one monitor is a hassle so you might imagine rendering high quality stuff for both eyes being a non-trivial thing. New tech, so it’s a learning process for us as well.

So despite the delay, the game is progressing nicely. And meanwhile waiting for Reset to get done our boys at Almost Human are just coming out with Legend of Grimrock 2! Releasing October 15th! Get it now at www.grimrock.net (Unabashed advertising :) )

Keep on truckin’, we’ll do that too ;)

In Theory… You are only human

Posted by

Hey there, it’s been a while since our last real game progress report. So now is the perfect time. :)

We’ve been doing some stuff and then some more stuff. And then even more stuff. This time we’re going over a little bit of the UI and cockpit interface.

Cockpit you say? You might or might not have picked up from our debut trailer that you are playing actually as the human inside the G.E.O mech suit. The cockpit has a twin role in the game. It serves as both a menu platform and as a gameplay element.

As we’re really focusing on taking you to another place we didn’t want to have a separate menu lobby. Once you launch the game from your desktop you are in the game world. You are inside the mech. All the game’s menus are accessible through the monitors in the cockpit. You select by looking at the desired choice. A small cursor appears on the monitors when looked at to help choose the right menu item. We are still working to find the right sizes for the menu items to ensure ease of use. You switch from internal view (cockpit) to external view (mech) by pressing Esc. Note that the cockpit is a work in progress and showing the same work in progress content as a place holder on all the monitors.

In Theory… New office

Posted by

Hello all!

Writing just to let you know that we are alive. So… we’re alive. We’re keeping our heads down and concentrating on the development thus the slight radio silence. We’ve moved to a new office space dubbed the “Theory Lair” and it’s marvelous. Some work needs to be done to it as well. :)

In Theory… Reset is the “Sensation of the Year”!

Posted by

Hoooooolyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

Reset won the “The Sensation of the Year”  award at the Finnish Game Awards last night! We really really didn’t see this coming and we are truly mind blown but we are super proud to receive this acknowledgment. This is truly bigger than us as it really shows that the Finnish gaming community is a forward thinking entity. Super big thanks to IGDA Finland and Neogames for arranging and hosting the event!

I’ll just leave this here :)
