Photo Finish: Republique Gets Funded

By Nathan Grayson on May 12th, 2012.

Hooray! Maybe this means there will finally be more than one screenshot of the game.
With a mere five hours left before cruel fate snuffed out Hope’s chances of a bright (read: horrific, downcast, and hopelessly dystopian) future, Kickstarter finally kicked into high gear. Republique has officially met its funding goal – and then some, in fact. The final tally stands at $555,662, which is pretty damn astounding, given that nearly $300,000 of it came surging in this week.

Disembodied┬ásurveillance camera protagonists will speak of this photo finish for years to come. Well, if it succeeds anyway. But honestly, why should you care?
