Hover: Revolt Of Gamers Rules Over Them On Kickstarter

By Graham Smith on April 23rd, 2014.

It better be good, or I'm going to say its revoltING *to* gamers. Yeah. Critic.

Sure, it’s pegged as a cross between Mirror’s Edge and Jet Set Radio (with the latter’s composer maybe onboard), but it’s one of the items on Hover: Revolt of Gamers‘ feature list that catches my eye. “A dynamical scenarisation without interruptions.” Oh shit!

Leap Of Faith: Mirror’s Edge Meets Jet Set Radio In Hover

By Nathan Grayson on January 24th, 2014.

Hover: Revolt of Gamer is still pretty obviously early, but goodness do I like where it’s headed. The goal? To marry Mirror’s Edge‘s madly precarious first-person parkour to Jet Set Radio Future‘s groovy techno-tronic cityscapes. Oh, and developer Fusty Games is throwing in an open world for good measure. Also rail-grinding, because who didn’t love the ’90s? The trailer below doesn’t quite stick the landing, but it already looks like it’s on the right track.
