Just to be upfront about this I am posting this now because I have been following the game Repubique and the teams kickstarter campaign with much interest. I said to myself that if they got beyond $300,000 out of their $500,000 goal that I would pledge towards the game. they are now at 350,671 but only have 43 hours to go.
So I thought I would post on here to see who has heard of the game, the team and their Kickstarter campaign. If you haven't heard of it check it out... I think its a really cool concept. Their kickstater page will do a better job of explaining the game concept and their aims for the project.
Also David Hayter (Solid Snake) and Jennifer Hale (Fem Shep) have signed on to lend their talents to the game.
Camoflaj+Logan Headed by Ryan Payton (who has worked on the Metal Gear games among many others) is the team behind the game which initially started out as just an ios focused project but now has been expanded to both Mac and PC. They are trying to make a unique AAA ios game where you guide a Character called Hope through the game world as she attempts to escape a totalitarian big brother 1984-esce state by hacking computers and cctv cameras and the like. The team claim and have shown in videos that the ios version of the game will be designed specifically to take advantage of the devices features, similar in intent to how Superbrothers designed and developed Sword and Sworcery for the ios devices. The Pc and Mac versions will also be designed specifically for mouse and keyboard control.
I really like the idea the team has for the game and would love to play more fully fledged smartly designed games for my iphone.
