Hard Reset is a first-person shooter aiming to be a throwback to the "oldskool" times, with spectacular explosions, hordes of monsters and a variety of weapons. The game relies heavily on environmental hazards, such as high voltage boxes and exploding barrels, which the player must utilize to defeat large groups of foes.

In this sci-fi setting, the player assumes the rule of Maj. Fletcher, a soldier of a private military contractor, responsible for the security of Bezoar City, the last human-populated city of Earth, after humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by sentient machines. After a breach occurs, Fletcher must fight his way to defend The Sanctuary, a network that holds billions of digitized human minds.
