Hover: Revolt of Gamers could come to Wii U

Over the weekend a new Kickstarter for a game went live that’s described as a combination between Mirror’s Edge and Jet Set Radio. If you’re not familiar with those titles, they both feature parkour elements in a futuristic setting with a semi-open world feeling. Hover: Revolt of Gamers hopes to capture that feeling by offering a fully open world parkour experience with 100% freedom of movement.

According to the developer, the game will also be designed so that it can be taken from single player to multiplayer sessions with just the click of a button. Here’s a look at everything the game plans to offer:

  • Crazy sensations of freedom and movement
  • In a 100% explorable openworld inside a vast futuristic extra-terrestrial city
  • Colorful cartoon HD graphics
  • Numerous characters to unlock and play
  • An experience system and a skill grid per character
  • join various clans
  • A dynamical scenarisation without interruptions
  • Non linear adventure and missions
  • The game can be switched to multiplayer at any time
  • Ability to create real time multiplayer events
  • First and third person view
  • Compatible and particularly adapted to the Oculus Rift
  • Gameplay technique through a quick and intuitive handling

While the initial $38k goal is just for the PC version of the game, the developers have stated that a Wii U stretch goal will be possible if the Kickstarter reaches $100k. That’s looking to be possible if the game keeps up the momentum it has right now, as it still has 31 days to go and it has already collected $14k of the necessary funds. If you’d be interested in seeing this one making the jump to Wii U, consider backing it.

    Me wants but i have no money. Im goin to have a pc capible of awesomeness here in a couple of months and i also have a wii-u. screw xbone!! Ps4 can still live :)

  • Lusunup

    Wow first kickstarter I’ll support! this kinda reminds me of SFX snowboarding xD

  • jjbredesen

    This looks cool, one of the better looking indies, but not sure if its my kind of game.

    • Orto

      I bet the sony ponies would love this on the indiestation 4. But looks like its just for the wii u in terms of consoles :)

      • jjbredesen

        sony ponies and indiestation 4??

        In terms of indie games Wii U and PC have way more indie titles, pretty sure there are more indie titles on Xbox One aswell.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          There’s the fact that PS4 is still new compared to Wii U. Though, his comment makes zero sense. It’s obvious someone didn’t do research. Silly fanboy wars.

          • jjbredesen

            Yup. seen his comments, butthurt fanboy :P

          • Orto

            If ure not a fan of the wii u why comment? Your a butt hurt pony who cant believe his beloved sony is going bankrupt. Nintendo ftw!!!! Ninendo will be around longer than fony hahahaha

          • jjbredesen

            I am a fan of the Wii U, never said i wasn’t :P

          • Rinslowe

            He’s obviously anti- Nintendo or Wii U Daily or both…
            Check the comments… nuff said.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, but i find it funny to “study” them and play with them :P

            This one is more stupid than truthteller :D

          • Rinslowe

            Sheesh, there’s not a Nintendo fan on here, that would talk that amount of “stupid”
            Looking at your comments, you’re yet another one of those anti-Nintendo fanboys trying to make the community look bad.

            A friend of Gonzalez?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Looking at your comments, you’re yet another one of those anti-Nintendo fanboys trying to make the community look bad.”

            Hmmm….I was thinking that same thing about you. If you’re going going to prove that there isn’t a fan of any type on here nor is there any amount of stupid coming from them, then maybe you shouldn’t make those types of comments of your own. You only contradict yourself. For the record, no, he isn’t a friend of mine, as I obviously don’t agree with his comments either. You can try to use my history against me all you like, but I’m certainly not the one who is adding names of people who had nothing to do with the poster you are referring to. I’m pretty sure you know I’m right, though I get the feeling you won’t admit that. I guess we’ll see if I am wrong. ;P

          • Rinslowe

            Settle down Daniel.
            No need to drop an entire twisted philosophy on me for mentioning your name. Haha.

            Psychopath much?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Lol? I expect you don’t like your own medicine so you drop the usual twist that somehow my health is in jeopardy over telling you not to use my name. I take it you took it the wrong way as per usual? It does tell me who has the psychopath issues, but thanks for the psychology lesson Dr. Phil. You showed me a good example. You’re upvote is not needed, but thanks nonetheless. Now settle down, high blood pressure might lead to a number of health issues, but you know that already.

            Lol.

          • Rinslowe

            Hahaha look at you go man…
            o_O

            Really, you might just be in danger of popping a gasket or something…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Hahaha look at you go man….I feel bad for ya. Here’s an upvote.
            O_o

            Really, your ego might just be in danger of poppig a gasket or something….

          • Rinslowe

            Originality is not your forte is it.
            Hmm hmm…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Originality is not your forte, is it?
            Hmm hmm…

          • Rinslowe

            haha…. are you now…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Good that you calmed down, you don’t need to trigger a stroke. I’d love to continue this with ya, but I don’t wanna hurt your pride any further. Should just accept that you were wrong than go on the defense. Must not be your forte. Bye bye now. ;P

          • Rinslowe

            …yawn…
            Daniel, just calm down… lol

          • Orto

            Lol at ure indiestation 3.5. You will be missing out on mk8 and smash bros, ure stuck with no games silly pony ;)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “You will be missing out on mk8 and smash bros, ure stuck with no games silly pony ;)”

            Nice one, but grasping for straws fails yet again. A “pony” sure wouldn’t own other Nintendo products. Good try though. As for MK8 and Smash Bros, I can live without them for a while. PS4 has plenty to offer and I am quite satisfied. I thank you for your subjective discussion. Of course, if you thought that was a fact, then might wanna pop that bubble of yours and come out. I’ll leave the silly fanboy insults to you. I guess we have another David Trail, or perhaps you are him on a new account? Either one doesn’t surprise me. ;P

            P.S. you’re*

        • Rinslowe

          Yup,

          Somebody just wanted to please the crowd. Only…. wrong crowd.

          • jjbredesen

            If i wanted major fanboy upvotes i would not even post stuff as bad as him, this as another level of fanboyism, a exstrmenist/fundamentalist level…

          • Rinslowe

            He’s no Ninty fan of any flavour…
            On this site and rightfully so, being an extremist is a joke. No-ones going to be giving that guy major anything.
            o_O

            Hopefully he offends someone on the way back from AA today and gets a major ass whoop’in

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            OK fellas, might want to take it down a level. We’re all on the same side here.

          • Rinslowe

            Is that what you call it these days? haha…

            http://wiiudaily.com/2014/04/hover-revolt-of-gamers-kickstarter/#comment-1348797276

            I just call that nonsense, fanboy anti…

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            Well, to be fair, Im just expressing an overwhelmingly positive opinion regarding this game, and refuse to accept otherwise. I can appreciate different sentiments when expressed politely, but people just saying “this game looks like pooooop”, is useless and obnoxious and don’t deserve to be here. You guys have different opinions, expressed well. just dont worry about each other.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, feeling like doing the same as i did with Science, but he has not directly harassed anyone yet, so il wait and see, don’t go exstreme unless they actually are trying to harm someone, whats remaining of Nintendscience has retreated to an encrypted comment page, but i have bypassed the encryption and had a nice chat with them, so there no longer in business, as for this new group lets just wait and see.

          • Rinslowe

            You mean Akimoto… Or Nintenscience reborn… lol….

          • jjbredesen

            Nah Akimoto is not Nintenscience, its a webpage where the former members are, they have nothing more to do with Thescienceenthusiest1330, he has moved to: http://thingstreet.weebly.com/401/login.php?redirect=/

            The Akimoto members are not affiliated with Science, and i hope it stays that way, have kept a close eye on that site, and there seems to be no problems. (so far)

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        That would make sense if Wii U didn’t have more indie games than third party or even 1st party of late. That’s a fail comment. ;P

      • greengecko007

        Nope. From the kickstarter page, “The base goal completed, the game is planned for PC/Mac/Linux, XboxOne/PS4. A specific version for the Wii U including asymetric gameplay and local multiplayer modes will be developed if the WiiU stretch goal is completed.”

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Yeeeah. it does look interesting, but certainly not my type of game either.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        It doesnt look interesting at all for a console priced like this. Yes, maybe for a mobile phone or a pad. But this is the only types of games we are getting for Wii U. Not the fault of the game creators, but man did Nintendo fuck us hard. We got an indie only console heavily overpriced. 150$ is what Wii U should have cost.

        • Rinslowe

          “but man did Nintendo fuck us hard”
          Lol…

        • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

          Sorry Magnus, but I must disagree. While the JAR games on Wii U would be amazing, I am sold on this game and will kill anyone who speaks ill of it.

          • Rinslowe

            ill of it?
            I mean aye captain, ye will! arrrgh and me parrot…
            o_0

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            Don’t patronize me.

          • Rinslowe

            Or I’ll have to rent an RV from you in Ontario???
            :)

    • Josiah Parsons

      It looks like a Kirby Air Ride sequel! I’m psyched!

  • Capt. Smoker

    I still want a toast running game

    • Blue Hernandez

      What series is that from?

      • Capt. Smoker

        I haven’t got a clue, in the gif she was hit by a truck lol I just googled “late for anime school” xD

        • Blue Hernandez

          Haha nice I found the gif lol.

        • Daniel Brown

          I believe in an episode of K-On! (probably the first one), Yui is running to school with toast in her mouth. But I’m sure it happens in a lot of animes.

          • Blue Hernandez

            Yes! I knew someone on the internet and gaming website would know! Thanks XP

          • Daniel Brown

            Haha I looked it up, and well over 50 animes does the same thing.

          • Capt. Smoker

            there was one with a guy chugging back noodles lol

          • Capt. Smoker

            You just gave me an anime to watch, hats off to you good sir ^__________insert toast here_________^

    • PrincessKairi

      Failing that, a Powdered Toast Man game?

      • Capt. Smoker

        Ahahaha, that kinda made me feel like Ed and his buttered toast and gravy fetish :D

  • LukeMM95

    The art style of this game just makes me want a next-gen Jet Set Radio game all the more.

  • Xero Azure

    This looks Absolutely Damn Right Godly, My money just vomited out of my wallet.

    • Josiah Parsons

      I really hope that enough players will play this on the Wii U so the clan interaction will work out.

  • Thomas Vienna

    If this doesn’t release for the Wii U, I’m buying a gaming PC, I’ll have to. Not that I have the money to do that >.> This game just looks perfect for the Wii U, how could it not? The Wii U excels in those kind of graphics! Maybe not the online, but still…

    • NintendoFan

      I’ve never had a problem with the online, but many people on the internet seem to have problems. What’s wrong with it?

      • greengecko007

        There’s never anyone online, and there’s not very many online games. The actual online service isn’t bad though, it’s just not as good as PSN or XboxLive.

      • Thomas Vienna

        I’m just commenting on how online functions usually aren’t included for Wii u games.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Looks good for any console.

  • classicgamer20

    This looks cool but i’d rather have a Jet Set Radio sequel/remake but I’ll probably buy this if it comes to the WiiU to satisfy my needs.

  • greengecko007

    It looks really cool to me, and definitely something I’d buy if it makes it to the Wii U. If you have a lot of cash to throw around, donating huge amounts of money to this project apparently results in you being in the game in some way.

  • Donaald

    Seems fun and all but if they want 100k for their core target I don’t even want to imagine how much they would ask for a Wii U stretch.

    • greengecko007

      The Wii U goal is $100K, the goal for PC is $38K. It’s already sitting above $16K.

      • Donaald

        Oh, I misread, I thought 100k was the core target, still 100k seems to far-fetched.

        • greengecko007

          It definitely seems high. I know that the Wii U has different architecture, but I can’t imagine it would take that much more money to develop a version for the Wii U.

          • Drowrin

            Especially if all the assets are already completed.

  • Gameonfool

    This looks cool but the wii u needs real games, Bayonetta and x should have come out yesterday and they need some more unannounced games soon or the wii u will sit in a big pile of fail.

    • Jessey

      What defines a “real” game for you?

      • Gameonfool

        Nintendo games, you know, maybe what I brought a Nintendo wii u for

        • Jessey

          Bayonetta isn’t a Nintendo game, though.

          • Gameonfool

            its an exclusive they made posible that i will enjoy enough

  • Ducked

    Is it wrong that I could careless about these kickstarter/indie titles?

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheMwgly Mwgly

    of course.. “just” 100k and the wii u gets a port.

  • ZeldaFan83

    Oh man there is a guy who is flaming the hell out of the project and Wii U version in the comments. He’s supporting the game but giving the game and the developers negative comments pretty much calling them stupid and giving them bad rep. Why donate money to a project and then talk shit? Just give them your money if you like the project and are willing to support it and either give some suggestions or requests about what you would like to see in the game or shut up!

  • ETeach

    I’d probably play it. I wish it was 3rd person, but that’s just a personal gripe.

    • DoctorWily

      They near the beginning of the video that you can switch back and forth between first and third person – you can play in which ever viewpoint you prefer.

      • ETeach

        That’s awesome. I was watching it muted XP

  • disqus_QNIAqtNpHo

    LOOKS AMAZING please make this game possible i’ve wanted a parkour game for a long time and this is exactly what i’ve been looking for high jumps,wall jumping,wall sliding,very fast speed, and more i really hope this comes out

  • CydeFxt

    Holy shit! The art style, the music!!! I’m all in!

  • Nathan DeFalco

    Anyone know if I can JUST back the Wii U stretch goal? Or at the very least, if this game gets it’s initial goal met can I then kick in for the stretch goal? This will be the first Kickstarter project I ever backed. I want to I’m not wasting my money.

  • brian

    Holy crap. So many articles headlined with “X game COULD be coming to Wii U!”
