Sega and Yoko Taro’s Error Game ‘Reset’ Ends Abruptly After Less Than a Year
Sega and Yoko Taro’s highly-anticipated game, Reset, has been abruptly discontinued after less than a year. The game, which was released in March 2020, was set in a post-apocalyptic future and was praised for its unique art style and narrative.
Reset garnered a considerable amount of attention among fans due to its strong story and art direction. The game was set in a future world where humans have survived the catastrophic event known as “The Great Reset” and fought to escape the oppressive systems that followed in its wake. In the game, players could explore detailed worlds, face off against powerful bosses, and experience an impactful story that left many players wanting more.
Unfortunately, the game’s life was short-lived. Sega announced the game’s discontinuation in December 2020, much to the surprise of fans. In a statement released by Sega, the company explained that the game’s development had “proved more difficult than expected” and that the game’s premature end was unavoidable. This news left many disappointed and confused; it seemed that Sega and Yoko Taro’s ambitious project of creating an error game had already ended in failure.
Despite its short lifespan, Reset will go down in history as one of Sega’s most creative titles. Its unique art direction, deep narrative, and ambitious project of creating an error-based game will be remembered and admired for years to come. The game’s legacy will live on in the many dedicated fans who were able to experience it.
Reset’s sudden discontinuation serves as a reminder that nothing in life is guaranteed. We must appreciate the moments we have, no matter how short-lived they may be.
