  • Hard Reset new video released, developer explain why game is "PC exclusive"

    As promised, Flying Wild Hog has released a new gameplay footage for their upcoming PC exclusive first person shooter "Hard Reset". The console gamers may get disappointed but the studio has a valid reason why the game is PC exclusive.

    In an interview to GameSpot, studio’s CEO Michal Szustak said it is easier for a new studio to develop a single platform game.

    "We really wanted to create and use our own tech," said Szustak. "Our engine was built with one thought–to be used in a first-person shooter that uses lots of physics and destruction, with outstanding graphics and also optimized to do the job well. There are many games published on PCs that are just ports from consoles, and we all know that today the power of a current-gen console is similar to a four- to five-year-old PC.

    "If you want to show some amazing graphics, it’s better and easier to develop the game for PCs. Also, in the era of movie-like shooters almost ‘on rails,’ with player-environment interaction as limited as possible, we wanted to create a game for old-school PC players, raised on all those forgotten Dooms, Quakes, and Painkillers."

    Hard Reset will launch in September, exact launch date will be announced soon. Watch the new gameplay video below:
