The Jet Set Radio inspired, free-runner Hover: Revolt of Gamers has finally launched its Kickstarter campaign. Developer Midgar Studio is looking to raise $38,000 to fund the development of the game, which is planned for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux.
The game obviously is heavily inspired by Mirror’s Edge, with it’s first-person perspective and parkour-style, free-running gameplay. Here’s how the game’s Kickstarter page describes it:
Halfway between the crazy universe from Jet Set Radio, the interactivity of a Mirror’s Edge and inspired by movies like the 5th Element or Star Wars, “Hover: Revolt of Gamers” places itself on another world and puts you in charge of a band of Gamers revolted against oppression and the anti-video games laws that rules the city.
If Hover reaches a stretch goal of $60,000, Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma will lend his talents to the game’s soundtrack. Additionally, if the game reaches $100,000, a Wii U version will be created, which will also add asymetic gameplay and local multiplayer modes.
By contributing $15, you’ll receive a digital copy of the game, and a $30 contribution will gain you access to the early alpha version of the game.
