Indie developer Fusty Games has remained quiet since the completion of a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming Hover: Revolt of Gamers in May 2014. The developer had hoped to raise $38,000 USD to develop the virtual reality (VR) compatible title but ended up making a total of $116,398. Now the team has broken its post-campaign silence with the series of its first ‘Making Of’ video, which can be seen below.
The video takes us through what the developer has been working on since the completion of its crowd funding campaign, giving us an in-depth look at the work on the title. This includes improvements to the title’s character designs and animations and the addition of a new climbing feature that allows players to grab onto the edge of buildings as they scale the city. There’s also a look at the workd done to the title’s expanded envrionment and more.
Hover: Revolt of Gamers is inspired by the likes of the Jet Set Radio series, with players performing tricks and stunts across a futuristic urban environment. The title is set to feature support for the Oculus Rift VR headset on PC, Mac and Linux, with Xbox One, Wii U and PlayStation 4 versions also in development. Support for the Project Morpheus VR headset is yet to be confirmed on the latter. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s development, reporting back with any more updates.
