Fight The Future: Republique’s Final Episode Released

Episodic dystopian stealth game Republique [official site] has now wrapped up, as developers Camouflaj released the fifth and final episode yesterday. It's been four years since Republique's Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, two years since its debut on pocket telephones, and one since its arrival on PC. What will happen to Hope, the futureteen who's grown up imprisoned in a futurescience facility? Mate, I- look, the whole…

Republique Episode 4 Sneaks Into A Graveyard

When dystopian sneak 'em up Republique [official site] first arrived on PC, it brought with it (fancier, "remastered" versions of) the first three episodes that'd already slipped into pocket telephones. Now we're synchronised, and the fourth of its five planned episodes has arrived. Episode Four: God's Acre looks to be escaping dark underground sci-fi complexes and venturing into... a dark and spooky graveyard. If I…

Hacking It: Republique Remastered On PC This Month

It's been, ooh, nearly three years since we last posted about République. Last time we looked in, the dystopian third-person sneaker had squeezed past its Kickstarter goal. What's happened since then? Well, developers Camouflaj have released the first three episodes on pocket telephones and digital slates, and now they're almost ready for a PC release. République Remastered has upgraded its engine to Unity 5, with…

Photo Finish: Republique Gets Funded

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. In…

Tick-Toque: Republique Rallies For Final Kickstarter Push

Truth be told, I never really liked Republique's chances on Kique, er, Kickstarter. Don't get me wrong: it's pretty much the only Kickstarter I'm personally pulling for, but a mere two weeks ago, it still needed to coax $400,000 out of an army of unwilling wallets. On top of that, we're talking about an unproven concept from a freshly born franchise. And, perhaps most damningly,…

Keep Hope Alive: Camouflaj On Tailoring Republique To PC

The world of PC ports is a dark and treacherous place. DRM, 30 FPS framerate locks, and preset graphical options? Oh goodness, I need to go hide under a warm blanket while clutching my stuffed animal representations of anti-aliasing and V-sync. And yet, within those seedy alleyways, there's corner so pitch-black that most PC gamers dare not even utter its name: iOS ports. They are,…

Not iPhoned In: Republique Getting “Unique” PC Version

Republique is an iOS project on Kickstarter. Wait, don't run! I've surrounded the entire area with landmin-- urgh. Well, I was going to tell you that it's also a very intriguing idea from brilliantly talented folks who worked on Metal Gear Solid, Halo, and FEAR, but then you rudely went and exploded. But, while I gingerly sweep still-smoking bits of you off RPS' world-renowned lawn,…
