After an incredible outpour of requests from the community, videogame development studio Camouflaj, LLC and world-renowned production company Logan are committing to a special edition of their debut game, République, for the PC and Mac platforms.
More than just a simple port of the in-development iOS version, République for desktop computers will feature new gameplay, controls and story elements custom-tailored to the unique strengths of the PC and Mac platforms.
“Kickstarter is great because it gives us a direct connection to those interested in our game and allows us to have a dialogue with them,” says Camouflaj’s Ryan Payton. “The community told us they want République for PC and Mac, and we’ve listened. This is a big win for everybody.”
The Kickstarter campaign for République has entered its third week and just surpassed the $95,000 funding mark.
“We’ve still got a ways to go,” says Billy Berghammer, who recently joined Camouflaj to help the team with their Kickstarter campaign. “I’m bullish on our chances to reach our lofty goal, especially when I realized the community was clamoring for a PC version, not a PC ENGINE version...”
The development teams behind République are comprised of industry veterans that worked on such AAA franchises as Metal Gear Solid, Halo, Brothers in Arms, F.E.A.R., as well as the Skyrim television spot and iconic iPod “silhouette” ads.
République is scheduled for a summer 2013 release on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and on PC and Mac shortly after.
