Not that Reboot
Don’t have a next-gen console yet? Pish posh. Who needs ’em? Especially when the current/previous gen is still getting cool new games. Next month, the psychological sci-fi horror game Master Reboot is coming to PS3. Here’s an explanation from Managing Director David Banner:
To house your Soul, a family member (or yourself before you die) purchases an island on the Soul Cloud where the server will generate rooms, houses or skyscrapers that hold each and every memory from the deceased’s past, or of memories of their choosing. The game starts with you being uploaded to the Soul Cloud but something has gone wrong and you wake up on a beach not knowing who or where you are. It’s up to you to explore, solve puzzles and try to piece together your life and death.
If you check out the PlayStation Blog post you’ll find more haunting, colorful scenes. The sense of something being not quite right Master Reboot is attempting to instill is a nice alternative to the shock and gore horror sect. Very Lovecraftian in its gaps. The scariest things are the unknown, after all.
