Warsaw (September 13): Flying Wild Hog's debut game, Hard Reset, is finally available on Steam! This old-school first-person shooter doesn't bother with modern niceties like taking cover, regenerating health or constantly reloading weapons – this is run-and-gun action in a stunningly-realized cyberpunk setting, as you try to stop an army of robots from overrunning humanity's last city.
In a world where artificial intelligence research has gone awry, robots rise up against their masters and become the killing machines we all knew they were destined to be. Only your hero stands between a metallic hell and the safety of all humankind.
In response to reviewer and demo feedback, the release version includes an option to change the game's field of view, more checkpoints, and a fast menu option has been included, among other changes.
