We’ve written about Flying Wild Hog’s homage to old-school PC shooters before. The whole thing was suddenly revealed less than two months ago and you know what? Hard Reset is getting released in about two weeks.

Dear Videogame Industry

This is how I would like game reveals to be handled from now on, please. Now that I know the standard approach of “let’s reveal the game and then make them wait years before it comes out” is no longer a requirement to drum up a critical mass of hype, I feel you should take a leaf out of Flying Wild Hog’s book. I want a reveal followed swiftly by a release less than two months later.

Lots and lots of love, and big sloppy kisses

Me

XOXO

P.S. Hard Reset arrives on Steam on 13 September and will cost $29.99. If you want to be surprised by how modest the system requirements are, then hit the jump.
