LOS ANGELES - Nov. 14, 2017 - PRLog -- Today mobile fiction platform Bound is publishing the final two episodes of "Hard Reset," an adaptation of the original screenplay by former Pixar and Telltale Games creative Stephan Bugaj. Set in a near future where augmented reality and human-like androids are a part of everyday life, "Hard Reset" tells the story of Kay, a no-nonsense android-hating government agent, who must partner with the agency's first android law enforcer to prevent a terrorist from destroying the city with a nuclear weapon. The free Bound app, available for iOS with an Android version coming soon, combines prose, art, and audio with community features in geeky genres ranging from sci-fi and fantasy to thrillers.

"To me, 'Hard Reset' is more than just great sci-fi ideas and thrilling action, it's a story that contemplates the themes of what it means to be human, and how mankind is the greatest threat to ourselves," said Bugaj. "Those are things I always think about, both as an artificial intelligence designer and as a contemporary human faced with this world to come. And the decision Kay has to make in the end—which I won't spoil—is especially poignant to me as a parent.

I partnered with Bound because, as a filmmaker, I am accustomed to working beyond the page, so the art and sourcebook elements allow me to share an expanded view of the story world with the audience in a way that fits my storytelling style."

Bound debuted earlier this year with exclusive content based on the sci-fi time-traveling novel "The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O." by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland. The app also features content from acclaimed creators such as best-selling thriller author Eliot Peper, award-winning game writer Matt Entin, and linguist Nick Farmer, creator of the Belter conlang for SyFy's The Expanse.
