After Reset Aims to be Next Big Post-Apocalyptic RPG

Recently funded indie game After Reset is now in development after funding their prequel graphic novel. This is to be a game that spans multiple chapters per game, and is set after the events of a thermonuclear apocalypse that essentially ended civilization.

Aside from the obvious inspiration drawn from the Fallout series and Planescape: Torment, After Reset is to develop its own unique atmosphere through a different style wasteland, predominately by the presence of less dilapidated cities and advanced technology that was carried forward into this reality 132 years after the apocalypse.

Black Cloud Studios plans to release a prologue sometime this Fall and there’s plenty of content on their page to get you acquainted with this world before you get your feet wet.

Very addicting free-to-play browser game, a bit reminiscent of the old DOOM. We’ve been bombarding you with kickstarters lately so here’s a game that should get a bit more attention. Perfect if you’re bored at work or school!

Hive Jump

Graphite Lab Games has a kickstarter up that’s about half way funded for their current project Hive Jump.

This highly stylistic sidescroller features per-pixel dynamic lighting using Sprite Lamp and a Gunstar Heroes-like gameplay (remember the old school radial shooters?). This isn’t just a chaotic slaughterfest insecticide however, there’s an actual goal. You’re going for the queen, the heart of this little bug problem.

The game has been Greenlit on Steam, and the kickstarter has 16 days left!
