Reset is a indie, science fiction, adventure game set in a near future where patients can choose to have an optional and controversial procedure called a “reset surgery.” The operation wipes patients’ memories, so they can forget their past and become a new person with a fresh start in life. However, when the protagonist, Rana, experiences headaches accompanied by flashbacks of her pasts, she becomes obsessed with finding out who she was and why she decided to erase her history. The player must help Rana recover her memories, piece them together to solve the mystery, and make choices that will affect the outcome of the game. This work includes an interactive video game script and demo.
