Midgar Studios have released another update about their Kickstarter project, Hover: Revolt of Gamers. In this update they confirm that they were close to reaching the second stretch goal but have since smashed it. This stretch goal was $60,000 and unlocked Graffiti Mode as well as a soundtrack created by Jet Set Radio’s Hideki Naganuma, which you can find detailed below. It’s worth noting that the campaign has now crossed the $70,000 mark, which 22 days remaining making it look very likely the studio will reach the $100,000 Wii U stretch goal.
Midgar have confirmed previously that should they reach the $100,000 Wii U stretch goal, a bespoke version of the game will be made for the console making use of all of the unique features the console has to offer.
Thanks everyone ! We’ve nearly reached the second stretch goal !
To celebrate the collaboration with the composer of “Jet Set Radio” we’ll add a “Graffiti Mode” ! We’ll use the Graffiti system on two different occasions. First, there will be a classic mode, it’s a tribute to “Jet Set Radio” and you’ll have to spray graffitis on some elements of the background during special anti-propaganda missions. We also want to create some “special graffiti tricks”, when realizing a “graffiti trick” on the ground or during a wall slide you’ll leave a graffiti on that surface and gain a speed or jump boost for you and the allies behind you when they’ll step on it.
