Indie developer Fusty Game’s Kickstarter campaign for its upcoming Hover: Revolt of Gamers continues to be a rousing success. The Jet Set Radio-inspired project has just passed its first stretch goal of $50,000 USD, having smashed its initial $38,000 base goal just days after the project launched. The campaign for the virtual reality (VR) compatible title still has over 3 weeks left on the clock, with it due to close on 22nd May 2014.
The first stretch goal adds more playable characters to the experience, which sees players free-running around a futuristic city, performing stunts and tricks to revolt against anti-videogame authorities. Extra characters are unlocked by completing their own personal set of missions and each comes with a unique skill tree.
The title’s next stretch goal, set at $60,000 adds two new features. The first is a soundtrack from Hideki Naganuma, the Japanese composer famous for his worth on the Jet Set Radio franchise. There’s also a new game mode entitled Graffiti Mode, though the team is yet to detail just what this mode entails. After that there are just two stretch goals left; an $80,000 to add a new district and double the setting’s size and a $100,000 one for local multiplayer modes and a Wii U version.
Hover: Revolt of Gamers is hoping to launch in April 2015 and will come to PC with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with all the details.
