A new Kickstarter based title which is described as Jet Set Radio mixed with Mirror’s Edge is coming to Wii U, Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The soundtrack behind Hover: Revolt Of Gamers is created by the legendary Hideki Naganuma who composed the Jet Set Radio soundtrack. The game will also be compatible with Oculus Rift. The Kickstarter campaign goes live today.
Between the crazy Jet Set Radio, the interactivity of Mirror’s Edge and inspired by films like “The Fifth Element” or “Star Wars”, Hover let you play as a Gamer Team from another world, appalled at the dictatorship in their city.
Totally free in a large futuristic open world city and wearing a special high-tech suit offering you the ability to move around unlike anyone, you will have to impress all the Gamers of the City doing crazy Triks and “Parkours” in order to recruit an impressive team and enrole in more serious missions to overthrow the tyranny.
You will have to locate and infiltrate in the control centers of the anti-video games propaganda, free the citizens confined by the authorities, get back the consoles confiscated from the population, andfinally dethrone the new Mayor at the origin of this whole mess. Many security drones are patrolling city so be alert to the risk of being chased, and be prepared to shake off them.
Each Gamer you recruit in your team is playable and the experience gained can be used to upgrade their stats.
You will be able to switch into the multipayer mode just by connecting to a server. Cooperate with other players in missions or challenge them in fully configurable events (for example you can create race tracks in real time).
Update: The Kickstarter is now live. The Wii U version won’t happen until they reach 100k.
