The lights are on
Update: In a stunning late surge, République has reached its $500,000 funding goal. Of course, you can still visit the game's Kickstarter page to donate even more before the drive closes later today.
After countless requests from gamers supporting the
Kickstarter-backed iOS project République, the developers have announced they
will also be working on PC and Mac versions of the game.
In a press release, developers Camouflaj and Logan stated
that the newly-announced versions will not be simple ports of the iOS game, but
will "feature new gameplay, controls, and story
elements custom-tailored to the unique strengths of the PC and Mac platforms."
République promises to blend stealth, action, and storytelling
into one compelling package. The Kickstarter currently stands at $97,000 of its
$500,000 goal, with 14 days left in the drive.
Hopefully the newly announced
platforms will attract more donators to the project. To learn more about République,

Story elements? I didn't think platform mattered when it came to story O_o
Pretty interesting then!
Hope they make it!!!!
Backed! Thanks for the notice, GI. Rad looking title.
I'm pretty interested in this game. I really hope they can get the rest of what they need in time. I think I can spare $50 if it'll help get this game made.
It's like PBS, but with games. I think I need a better preview for this before buying their hours and then buying their game. Maybe I would donate to a series I know more about, like Persona (5, please!)
Close but not quite there yet. I will be getting this on Ipad though but the more people who get to play the better.
i hope the mac version takes advantage of the trackpad since its so close to an iPhone's touch screen
Why do these places use Kickstarter? If you use IndieGoGo you get to keep all your money even if you don't meet your goal...
Wish I had a credit card now, then I would fund this game.
Donate now and be unsure if you can play it! Sounds like a money grab, they were best off saying "Hey Xbox and PS3 players its coming to you!"
Why start with the iOS, with limited in interface scope and space, then port to PC and Mac?
