Republique hits $500,000 Kickstarter goal  photo



Republique, the promising stealth game that has been seeking funds on Kickstarter, finally hit its $500,000 funding goal with less than seven hours to spare. Talk about an impressive photo finish. 

The game was only past the halfway mark this week, and while many remained hopeful, it seemed quite likely that the project would see an unceremonious end at the starting gate. However, a last minute push for coverage and donations saw an astounding burst toward the goal, and with just hours left on the clock, Camoflaj has what it asked for. 

I'm pretty damn thrilled about the news, personally. Good stuff!

Review: Republique: Exordium

Republique was quite the ambitious Kickstarter project. With big names like Jennifer Hale and David Hayter attached, not to mention the million dollar budget, to say this stealth adventure promised quite a bit is an understatement. Having played the first of five episodes, I can safely say that most of the lofty goals have been met, but there is a bit more that's yet to be seen.more

Ryan Payton's Republique needs your help

I'm a bit tired of all these Kickstarter things (seriously, we get swamped with them!), but I feel like a dick for not taking notice of Republique -- mostly because I know the guy who's making it, and he's a stand-up guy! He'...more
