The Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming Jet Set Radio-inspired videogame Hover: Revolt of Gamers has ended with over triple of its original funding goal raised. The campaign had hoped to raise $38,000 USD to fund the title, but instead ended up making $116,398 with the help of 3,843 backers. Developer Fusty Game will launch the videogame on PC, Mac and Linux with full support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset as well as PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U.
“As you know, Fusty Game is composed of only three people,” the team wrote on Kickstarter shortly before the campaign’s closure. “It’s a very small team for such an ambitious project that is Hover, but when an entire community supports you, everything becomes possible.” The team went on to thank Midgar Studio for its support of the title and the community for offering feedback such as bringing Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma on board.
Hover: Revolt of Gamers is both a third and first-person title in which players perform tricks and stunts around a futuristic city. Players navigate the world on rollerskates but can also freerun around the environment, gathering more characters to join their crew as they pull off bigger missions. The title’s Kickstarter campaign passed 4 of its stretch goals in the end, adding more characters, a larger environment and even the Wii U version.
The title hopes to launch in April 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow Hover: Revolt of Gamers‘ progress and report back with any more updates.
