Ryan Payton's Camouflaj studio and Logan Games are planning to bring République, an elaborate stealth adventure intended for iOS, to the PC and Mac as well. The game is still in the midst of a Kickstarter funding round, during which backers and fans will determine the viability of Payton's passion: putting a cinematic, story-driven "AAA" game on touch-based devices.
In pledging to support PC and Mac, the designers aim to revisit elements of the République's interface and story, as much of the original concept and fiction hinges on the use of a smartphone. As an outside entity viewing the situation through security cameras, you indirectly guide and communicate with Hope, a girl attempting to escape a heavily monitored installation.
If all goes to plan (the Kickstarter is about a fifth of the way to $500,000, with 14 days left to go), you'll meet her in Summer 2013. The PC and Mac versions should follow "shortly after."
