Throughout this year Wales Interactive has outlined its plans to bring three games to the Wii U, with Gravity Badgers being the first arrival at the end of May. Infinity Runner will be another, which includes 32-player multiplayer, but the next arrival on Nintendo's system will be a title announced at the turn of the year — Master Reboot.
When we interviewed the company's Managing Director, David Banner, he described Master Reboot as follows.
Master Reboot is a haunting first person sci-fi adventure game set inside the Soul Cloud. In the not too distant future they have created the Soul Cloud, a giant server that holds the data of your soul and memories when you die. The Soul Cloud is filled with floating islands; each island looks like a town, village or city filled with rooms, skyscrapers and houses that hold people’s memories. 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.
It's a title that certainly sounds intriguing, and there's not much longer to wait — the studio has announced that it'll arrive in North America and Europe in next week's Download Update, on 24th July, with a price of £9.99 / €11.99 / $14.99.
