Master Reboot Out 3/4: Daring to Be Different on PS3

David Banner's Avatar + Posted by David Banner on Feb 21, 2014 // Managing Director, Wales Interactive

Master Reboot for PS3 launches on PlayStation Store March 4th, and everyone at Wales Interactive is really excited about its imminent release.

With Master Reboot, we have dared to be different and created a beautiful, stylistic world that takes inspiration from games like Day of the Tentacle and Tron. We mix mystery and intrigue through its narrative, and convey it through a minimalist visual aesthetic.

It was a big decision to create this bold, yet simple graphical look for the game — the games industry overall is geared to emulating reality in this particular genre, and we knew this would split opinion. We wanted to create a style that would really stand out and give us, as the developers, an identity. I think we’ve achieved that — Master Reboot has been described as “a gorgeous indie horror adventure,” and “a breath of fresh, creepy air,” and “a freakishly cool game where you invade the memories of dead people.”

Master Reboot takes around five to eight hours to complete, depending on the player and how much you explore. It’s definitely a game you get more out of the longer you play, and to really understand the full story you’ll have to find all the “blue ducks.” Blue ducks are very important in Master Reboot… finding them will help you uncover clues to unravel the story.

The story takes the player on a journey through the mysterious world of the Soul Cloud, where the secrets of its creation and who are you are will be revealed. Using elements of psychological horror, Master Reboot will not only present a new vision of life after death, but also bring fear and disturbing imagery into its digital world.

To sum it up: Master Reboot is an engaging puzzle game play designed for fans of adventure games, and it’s quite unlike anything else on the market.

Color me interested. Any chance of a future port to PS4? Not worried about a graphics bump, just prefer the new controller.

Always interested in this kind of boutique game for interesting people.

looks good but also looks like a couple more months to polish it up and get rid of some of those clunky animations and clipping issues and maybe increase the polygon count would have made it amazing. Hopefully it’ll be good >.>

@11: Hardcore is a myth. The sooner you realize this the better off you (and the industry) will be.

@15…YEAH THATS WHY..GTA5, GOD OF WAR, METAL GEAR AND UNCHARTED GAMES SELL A HELL OF ALOT RIGHT? HARDCORE IS NOT DEAD..INFACT ITS WHAT MAKES THE BIGGEST MONEY..IM SURPRISED ITS TAKING THE DEVS OF SHANK TO MAKE A GAME FOR THE VITA..IT WOULD SERIOUSLY HELP SALES FOR BOTH THE SYSTEM AND THE GAME..

It looks interesting but, not buying it cause it just don’t look that good the graphics and do you kill anybody in this game thats what i’m really worried about. P.S. I’m playing on the ps3 today “ONLINE”!!! Sorry gamers off topic again.

What you’re describing @16 isn’t “hardcore gaming”. It’s actually narrow minded drivel, and it’s choking the life out of gaming. We get the same bullcrap “AAA” titles with VERY little variation. No duh you’re getting bored waiting for the next blockbuster because you’re used to it being force fed to you like a fat greedy pig, every half year, same game, slightly varied title. It doesn’t matter though because you’re just frothing at the mouth, unable to control yourself while you spend someone else’s money on the SUPER DUPER DOUBLE EXPLOSION EDITION with useless plastic crap that you’ll forget about in 2 months. You buy the ultimate GTAV edition? How often do you use that useless security deposit bag?

Hardcore gamer… Don’t make me laugh.

Looks great! Definitely interested.

WolfyHopeless you don’t know what your talking about i’m genius527!!! I am a kind of hardcore gamer at times and you must of never see me “ONLINE” over here on P.S. blog telling me i’m a fat greedy pig, you barking dog that can’t talking and need dog food for every time you bark. So be quiet WolfyHopeless, and when you said hardcore gamer don’t make me laugh, you mean you don’t make me mad talking to me like you are finshing things off.

P.S. You never even seen me play call of duty ghosts “online”
P.S. Again Sorry gamers just had to correct what WolfyHopeless said that I didn’t like at all, ya’ll don’t worry about what I said cause I was talking to WolfyHopeless.

I was about to say “this doesn’t look that scary.” And then the forty second mark happened.

@Dionysus-Jones Interesting, I was just reading a Game Informer article on this subject the other day.

@WolfyHopeless I disagree with your opinion of AAA games being considered “bullcrap”. A lot of those games in fact do sell really well and are highly regarded by many in the gaming community. That said, I do agree however that the comments of a couple people on here are indeed very narrow-minded. I’m not sure where people get it in their heads that a game that doesn’t have some super-large production value or one that tries something new or different can’t be good.

@nYcFrEeWiLL82 and genius527 Just curious, what are you guys’ definition on what it means to be a “hardcore gamer”?

Sorry for the off-topic talk! That said I did check out the trailer and now I’m very interested.
