In Theory… The future was changed! The campaign was a success!

\o/ The campaign is over! The campaign was an unreal success! The future was changed! \o/

Thank you all! From a seemingly impossible situation you were able to drive the campaign to reach its goal just hours before the deadline. The final numbers stand at 71398€. The final statistics are not in yet, but over 20k€ was raised in the last day!

Now we will take a couple of days off for the holidays and gather our strength. Also a full campaign analysis will follow after we’ve gone through the data.

We came pretty close to the first stretch goal. We are so super happy about the support we got from everybody during the last days that we decided to make the Director’s Cut version with the funds we raised. So as a another Christmas present from us, the game will be made with the Director’s Cut specs. 1.5-2 hours of more content. More puzzles and story extension!

Oh I almost forgot! The Reset Referral Competition winners!

1st Prize: The VIP Funder Edition Perk goes to Marin Z (526€)

2nd Prize: The Special Funder Edition Perk goes to brett.caughie (320€)

3rd Prize: The Collector’s Edition Perk goes to Sam Rudge (180€)

The winners will be contacted via email after the holidays. Super big thanks to everybody for pushing the referrals to the max. We wouldn’t have made it with out them! Hooray for everybody!


\o/ !!!Hooray for the winners!!! \o/

Super Merry Christmas to You All and the Very Best New Year!

In Theory… Only 10k€ to go!!! 18 hours! Stretch goal revealed! go go go!!!

This rise is just phenomenal! The light is visible at the end of the tunnel! We are changing the future as we speak!!!

A bit funny to reveal any stretch goals at this stage, but we’ll move according to our initial plan.

1st stretch goal, 75k€: Directors cut.
Although with the initial budget we can hire help on the art assets, with this extra budget we can outsource a bigger batch of assets, which leaves room for us to concentrate more on the puzzles.  More puzzles and story extension, approximately 1,5-2 hours more content!

Huh, It’s been an amazing ride with all of you folks! We’ll be spreading the word to the end and we can only rely on you, our dear friends to keep doing the same. Change is near. Change is coming. Change the future!

In Theory… 34 hours to go and the speed is picking up!

We’re at 45500 €, 70% and the speed has dramatically increased in the last 2 hours!

What more is there to say than, LET’S DO THIS!!! 😀–4


5 days left! Perfect time for a RESET REFERRAL COMPETITION!

We’re just past the 30K€ mark! Yesterday was the best campaign day since the start with over 3,500 € raised and over 100 new contributors!!! Thank you for the incredible support so far, now lets push it to the end.

So how do we do that? If every contributor would bring in one contributor, the goal would be pretty much met. To make it more interesting though the RESET REFERRAL COMPETITION is go with über cool prizes!

In Theory… A new video on its way!

Hey y’all!

Two weeks to go on the campaign and we have still a long way to go. But we’re not done yet. When the going gets tough, the tough release a new video and start spamming the internet like crazy!

Did we mention that besides Reset being a puzzle game, it’s also an open world mystery solving game. 🙂 The upcoming video is about that part of the experience. The new video is coming at the end of the week, so hang tight and spread the word! Now is the time! >:)

***EDIT 11.12.2013***

Sorry folks, but we’ve decided to not release a new video at this stage. It was a hard call considering the campaign and all. We are not satisfied with it and rushing it and compromising the quality would not do us any good in the long run. We’ll of course continue to push the campaign with the current material. 🙂

In Theory… 20000€ milestone reached!–4

A big hand to everyone, high five and thumbs up! Our good pals at Almost Human (makers of Legend of Grimrock) were also super cool to lend their thumbs for a good cause. 🙂  The campaign is doing good, with almost one third of the 65K target already reached with 23 days still to go. Work continues on the campaign and the game of course.

Super big thanks to NVIDIA also, who published a new exclusive screenshot!

In Theory… Crowdfunding starts NOW!

After a two-week rain check we are finally ready to accept your money! We know it has been painfully burning in your socks and wallets and bank accounts but now you can feel the oh so sweet relief of parting with it! And for a good cause, no less!

Note: our campaign type is Fixed Funding, which means the goal must be passed or everyone will be refunded and we won’t get anything.

In Theory… We like bureaucrazy

Ok, so where are we? A quick Sunday update on what’s happening.

First off, thanks all for the enormously great feedback! Yet again energy reserves boosted to continue steadily on this road. And apologies for not replying to your latest comments. I will get to them this coming week. Seems we really need to start setting up a FAQ section or a forum. 😀

But yeah, so what is the campaign holdup? Shortly, bureaucracy. We’ve been set up for a week now, but we’re still waiting for the red tape to clear. We made the noob mistake of thinking that the cogs of yesterday’s world would turn at a swifter pace. Doing something for the first time has its ups and downs. No matter, this is luckily just a minor delay, and there is a saying I like to use sometimes especially when someone is nervous about some trivial time related issue. So I’ll say it to myself: “What’s the rush in a ready world?” Huh, thanks man! Relaxing now. 🙂

Anyhoo our spirits are high as ever! Work continues normally and hopefully we get to launch the campaign next week.

Keep it tight people,


In Theory… Reset Gameplay Teaser is Live!

On this truly grand day it is I, Mikko, taking over our In Theory post!

It’s been a long time coming but we are finally ready to show you what Reset will be all about as a game. We were going to start a crowdfunding campaign along with the release of the teaser today, but unfortunately there will be some delay in launching the campaign. We are so sorry that you still won’t be able to give all your money to us. That will change soon, we promise!

Without further ado, the Reset Gameplay Teaser:
