[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Imagine a world where death is no longer final, where precious memories are saved to enjoy forever, where your soul is immortal, welcome to the Soul Cloud.

Upload your soul to our dedicated servers and relax knowing that a part of you will live on, for eternity. That favourite holiday, happy moments from your childhood, meeting that special someone for the first time. All these memories saved for your digital soul and your family to revisit again and again.

The Soul Cloud - saving your past to secure your future.

Master Reboot is a psychological puzzle adventure game set inside the Soul Cloud. The Soul Cloud is a giant server that holds the data of your Soul 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. Since in this time Virtual Reality has been perfected, family members can visit the departed from time to time and they can visit old memories. When the person dies they are kept “asleep” for 6-8 weeks so the server can check the Soul and memories over and install a program into them so the deceased will understand where they are. If they are were woken before this they won't remember that they died and can panic which can cause the server to crash and have to reboot the system which can take 10 weeks to return to normal. This means no new souls can be added and no one from the living can visit the deceased.

Account being created…....initiating memories upload.......warning.......system malfunction.......warning.......fatal system errorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! ……attempting system recovery……..rebooting……… “Where am I? Who am I? ”. It’s time to piece your life......and death back together.

Master Reboot is due for release at the end of Spring 2013. Our original plan was to self-publish on PC, Mac, iOS and Android via a variety of online direct download portals. However we have had significant interest in this title from a major publisher who cannot be named, and we are currently talks of exclusive console publishing deal.
