Upon the debut trailer for Reset being released, it was clear that the game was going to be gorgeous, even to the extent of being touted as an "art game." The title's developer Theory Interactive, however, believes the opposite.
Co-founder Alpo Oksaharju said their debut title won't just predominately have an emphasis on visuals:
"We’re not making an art game, which could be generally difficult to enjoy, but a game which is thoughtful and atmospheric and fairly challenging. A game that isn’t fun to play isn’t fun, even it has a super high quality story.
“We’re building the game as an immersive experience, and I don’t mean just high quality graphics, but an experience that will hopefully grip players and leave thoughts afterwords. Graphics are just one tool to convey atmosphere and mood. We’re really trying to buid the story so that the player can experience the story and not just spectate it.”
To showcase exactly what they mean, Oksaharju confirmed that a gameplay trailer for the PC exclusive will be unveiled soon. Meanwhile, you can view Reset's debut trailer below.
