Developer Fusty Game and publisher Midgar Studio have released the first trailer for their new project, Hover: Revolt of Gamers. It takes the premise of Mirror’s Edge and gives it a Borderlands-style cel shaded look with dazzling techno-bubblegum colours. Also, the freerunning and grinding is reminiscent of Jet Set Radio or InFamous, but in a first person style.
The action takes place in a futuristic city filled with flying cars, bright neon lights and pumping electronica… just how the future should be! Players score points by jumping, grinding, running and bending their way through the city’s space-age architecture. The characters form part of Gamer Team, using their stunts and tricks to upset the dictatorship currently grasping the city in its iron grip, destroying its propaganda along the way.
Hover: Revolt of Gamers is still in an alpha build at the moment, so while no release date has been set, it is currently planned for a PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U release. Excitingly, the game will also support Oculus Rift, and hopefully Sony’s much rumoured PS4 headset peripheral too.
