Fusty Game have revealed that they are currently working on bringing their game “Hover: Revolt of Gamers” to the Wii U eShop.

The new Mayor of Hover City has outlawed video games amongst other kinds of entertainment, anyone who gets caught enjoying themselves is sentenced to hard labour. You’re playing on the side of the gamers, the side of a resistance hoping to get citizens their consoles back, after infiltrating high-security zones, divert cops, disrupt propaganda and more.

There will also be challenges, either against NPCs or other characters in multiplayer mode, you’ll need to prove your skills with regards to speed, tricks, agility, hacking ability and such.

The game clearly shows signs of inspiration from games such as  Jet Set Radio and Mirrors Edge, but any SEGA fans will also be glad to hear the soundtrack is being provided by Jet Set composer Hideki Naganuma. Hover is currently being created in Unity for PS4, Xb1, PC and Wii U and is expected to arrive towards the end of 2014.
