Hover: Revolt of Gamers Will Now Be Twice As Large

Futuristic parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers has reached its third stretch goal at $80,000. This means that the in-game city you’ll be playing in will be twice as large, with the addition of a new district.


In an update on their Kickstarter page, developer Midgar Studio also touched upon the development of a Wii U version of the game—which is the project’s fourth stretch goal at $100,000.


“As developers we want to bring to the Wii U an ambitious game that will use the specifications of the gamepad and its possibilities of asymetric game mode,” the studio wrote. However, they added, “Even if the WiiU is a console with a very decent performance, it’s kind of pale in comparison to the technical ambitions that we have for Hover.”


“That’s why we need to create a unique version for the console with specific optimization. The task is a lot harder because Hover is a huge, dense and dynamic openworld and we don’t want to release a Wii U game that doesn’t have a good local multiplayer mode.”


Hover: Revolt of Gamers is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Should a Wii U version of the game be developed, it will feature both a local multiplayer mode and some sort of asymmetric gameplay using the GamePad. Additionally, the PC version of the game will support the Oculus Rift.

    This game will be glorious

  • This game needs a Taxi Mode! Crazy Taxi with Jet Set Radio music!

    Man, Siliconera is all over this particular indie game. Whatever helps the Wii U version get funded I guess

    • What is your opinion on it?

      • CozyAndWarm

        It looks good! It’s just kinda unusual to see this much coverage for an indie game around here. Didn’t mean it negatively. And if it helps it come to Wii U, all the better.

  • New stretch goals include hoverboards? Sweet, it’ll be like SSX all over again.

  • Morningstar

    I think that a third district should be somewhat inspired by the Novels We and 1984. An even more dystopic hellhole where the building are made of glass and Privacy is not only dead but the mere mention would set of warning bells among the guards. A Penal colony where “Criminals” are dammed to a hell where Human rights go to die.

    Then again, that might be a little too dark for something like this game

    Also, Now that the Naganuma Strech Goals has been reached what are the odds of see thing this song in the game?


    • harmonyworld

      probably low since that song probably already belongs to another game (judging by the pic that says beatmania)
      He’d most likely be making new music for it
