The world loves an underdog story, and ambitious iOS project République has been a textbook example. It was days away from its Kickstarter’s expiration with only roughly half of its $500,000 goal donated – as you may remember us discussing – which is usually the kiss of death for one of these projects. But, thanks to an eleventh-hour monetary blitz, developers Camouflaj and Logan now find themselves with a surplus of almost $30,000 with three hours to go.
What’s more, République will no longer be limited to iOS. Thanks to incredible fan reaction, Camouflaj and Logan announced in a press release that they will also develop versions of the game for PC and Mac. More than just ports of the base project, they promise that these iterations of the game will “feature new gameplay, controls, and story elements custom-tailored to the unique strengths of the PC and Mac platforms.”
République‘s Kickstarter page will close for donations today at 10:00 pm GMT.
