Republique On PC Will Be A Slightly Different Game Than On iOS

As previously reported, Camouflaj and Logan’s stealth adventure game, Republique, is also coming to PC/MAC. For the PC version, Camouflaj plan to alter the game to fit the platform better, and recently released a video update on their Kickstarter page, detailing some of their ideas for the PC version. You can watch this below:

 

 

One of the more interesting features planned for the PC version is in terms of presentation. While Republique will be a game that fills up the entire screen of your iPhone and iPad, on the PC, it may run in several different windows. Camouflaj suggested that, perhaps each window will contain a different aspect of the game, such as your cam feed with Hope, your map, other UI elements, and so on.

 

Effectively, it would be designed to feel like any other application running on your PC, and you would be able to minimize any of the individual windows and multi-task the game alongside your regular PC use. One of the reasons mentioned for this change is that, in the iOS versions, the iOS device itself is part of the story, since Hope calls you up on your phone, asking for your help. Similarly, the PC version may be altered in the aforementioned manner to make the story fit that platform as well.

 

Other additional features are planned for the PC version, too, which would make it more ambitious in scope than the iOS release. You can listen to some of Camouflaj’s ideas in the video above.

    If this is being done by Ryan Payton, I’ve got some faith in this project.

    This looks like an interesting project but so obviously influenced by another video game called The Experiment (or experience112) done by Lexis Numerique. The only difference so far is that this game has a focus on stealth.

    Hell, even this idea of utilizing the pc as a format (in the sense of multitasking between windows) is identical to what you primarily do in The Experiment.

    The multi-window UI is actually a pretty cool idea, I would try the game out just for that alone.
