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

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 :)

In Theory… T-shirts have arrived!

The funder t-shirts are finally here! We will be shipping them out to funders who selected the appropriate perks soon. :)

The awesome Reset funder t-shirt!

In Theory… An audio announcement! And VR!

Hey hey hey!

Development continues steadily on all fronts. From world (level) design to meeting with the GOG guys, from anti-aliasing to audio tech implementation.

Speaking of audio we have an exciting announcement to make. The award winning audio producer/designer Mr. Ari Pulkkinen (Resogun, Best PS4 Sound IGN awards 2013, www.aritunes.com) is joining the team as the audio designer for Reset. We are highly excited to get Ari and his broad expertise and expressiveness on board and Ari is likewise excited for the opportunity to create the audioscape for the world of Reset. Ari will be working closely with us to really capture and deliver the strong emotion and feel that we’re are aiming for. Mikko is of course still composing the musical score.

Mikko, Reset and the Oculus Rift DK1.

In the heart of Theory there is immersion. And these times of rising VR are highly exciting to us (even with the Facebook acquisition :) ) as it is a way to create better immersion. What this means is that we will be putting a lot of effort into the Oculus Rift version of the game. Including binaural audioscape. The new Oculus Rift DK2 kits were ordered immediately as they came available, so hopefully we will be getting them in July when they begin shipping.

Cool stuff happening all around! Coolness!
