This game is a first person adventure game, a true adventure game where your focus is on wandering environments and solving puzzles along a storyline, not like the ‘adventure’ classification some games like the Legend of Zelda are sometimes given.

The game is set in a cyberworld/server where people that die have their memories preserved so that their loved ones can ‘visit’ them when they are gone. During the game you get the idea that things like the cyberworld weren’t common, so the memories you visit are relatively normal, like current 21st century experiences people might have as opposed to experiences in the transitioning cyberpunkesque world that the cyberworld exists in. However, the visuals in the game are just what you would expect from a game in the cyberpunk genre when not in the isolated memories. The visuals are relatively simple looking as far as being like crysis, but the style is appropriate for it and works well with the game. The sound in the game is pretty decent, but one of the added things that some may love or hate is that you constantly hear soft shouting or other horror tropes to give off a horror game atmosphere, even when you aren’t being chased by enemies or dangers that should actually give such a feeling.

In the beginning you are stuck in a town of 'memories' in the cyberworld where you must experience groupings of memories ranging from school to childhood, although you start at childhood, so it reminded me like it was a reversal of the initial memories you go through in To the Moon, although you can choose to complete the memories in each grouped set out of order. As I said before, in each of these memories you must experience, you must find hidden objects and use them, solve puzzles, and avoid possible death as there are sometimes enemies that will confront you. Hidden in each of these memories are blue ducks that will give you some memorable info that adds to the game such as pictures of people the main character knew. I usually don’t collect unnecessary objects, but collecting these really adds to the story and narrative of the game, so gotta catchem all. Every time you complete a memory, you go to a post memory sequence which is usually somewhat unrelated to the memory where you have to solve a puzzle and/or do something under a time limit. Most of the puzzles aren’t too hard, but sometimes it won’t be obvious what to do.

Overall, I found Master Reboot to be a fun game, and if nothing else, its probably one of the few games on steam with the Welsh language option.

This game delivers on story and atmosphere. The levels are unique and interesting and the puzzles are mostly enjoyable. The game runs in triple monitor surround once you change the config files but sadly all the in game notes and scraps of paper you find are not scaled correctly for triple wide surround. I had to change to single monitor to read them as they are essential to understanding the story, which is quite good. I will be keeping an eye out for more from this developer. Infinity Runner is another decent product from this group which also runs ok in triple wide surround.

Master Reboot is an immersive, story-centric indie game by Wales Interactive. I highly recommend this game for anyone who enjoys a game with a good story, a bit of mystery, problem/puzzle solving, and a dash of horror elements.

You play Madison Jones. A gifted mathematician, programmer, CEO of Mysteri Corporation, and archtitect of the "Soul Cloud". The Soul Cloud is a digital repository of human memories that is ostensibly set up for people to be able to interact with a digital replica of their loved ones. However, something is amiss and you must figure out what is wrong with the Soul Cloud while uncovering the backstory and motivation of your character.

  • Spectacular Use of Lighting
  • Creepy Soundtrack
  • Good Story
  • Good Writing
  • Memorable

  • The 2D "memory" cutscenes look pretty cheesy
  • Weird models for the player character's hands, axe, and air-rifle (floating guns like its 1999 again)
  • Relatively short (8-12 hours)

I enjoyed and I recommend this game. Some people will undoubtedly be put off by the graphics, but I would consider this game a testiment to the power of storytelling over eye-candy. There were a few startling elements that elicited involuntary vocal expletives of surprise; so take that into consideration. This isn't going to be a Game of the Year, but I put it in the same category as Gone Home--a must-play, cerebral, story-driven game that will stick with you.

Fabulous game... just beat it. Even though the graphics aren't the latest and greatest, I still enjoyed the visual experience quite a bit. There was a nice variety in the levels. Some levels are about exploring, some are more about puzzle solving, and yet others are more action-oriented. To be honest, I figured out the plot early on. But that didn't matter much, as each level was kind of a mini-game in-itself.

It's definitely not the scarriest game. But, I see it as more horror-style than survival horror if that makes sense. I think if you like the visual aspects of horror and cyberpunk, this is one worth checking out. I got it on a Steam Cyberpunk game sale, but I think it's worth $15. Ran OK on my 2011 iMac. Some of the cutscenes popped and crackled a bit. The gameplay itself was adequately smooth, but not terrific.

To sum up, I'm looking forward to Soul Axiom.

I rarely write reviews, but this game deserves it.
Master Reboot is a hybrid masterpiece combining elements of adventure, horror and mystery games.
Considering it's an indie game i'd say the devs put alot of effort in this game and makes me think what they could develop with more budget.
Oh, wait! I can see that on their new game "Soul Axiom" which sets the surreal environment and awesomeness of the game on a whole new level. Also the graphics match those of an AAA game. But enough with that, this is a review about Master Reboot!

This game has an immense storyline which you have lots of things to explore if you like giving attention to details.
You might be confused or feeling lost at first but giving attention to the cutscenes and clues found, you will feel like you're reading a very well written book. If you're looking for a casual game and not like paying attention this game is probably not for you, you will not understand anything about the story.
Everything makes sense eventually and oh, its goooood.

The environment of this game is awesome, most sceneries are surreal and the ambient sounds make the mystery atmosphere even better.
Most of the puzzles are great, actually I believe it's the way puzzles in games are supposed to be these days. Some of them are too easy, but most of them are clever and you can complete them pretty fast once you get them.
This game is about exploring, solving puzzles,finding items and how to use the and avoiding dangers. You won't be finding yourself shooting at stuff
Well, unless some fake ducks with a fake gun
Also, this game has several scenes that might make your heart beat quite faster, so i wouldn't suggest this to the weak hearted.

If you like indie and/or horror/mystery/atmospheric games , this is one of the best games I could suggest.
Actually it's the best, because the devs are awesome. They always pay attention to the community and care about what we want. Also from personal experience I had a problem with my steam key and they helped me almost instantly after I mailed them, with a very polite and friendly way. Cheers to the devs.

Last but certainly not least,
The ending song is awesome! Seriously, if you re a bit emotional it could give you tears.

So.. synopis:

✔ Mystery/horror atmosphere
✔ Immense, well written storyline (that however requires for you to explore, you wont get it only from cutscenes)
✔ Great graphics for an indie game
✔ Very well optimised
✔ Awesome devs
AWESOME ending song!
