It’s been a long road for the release of Hover: Revolt of Gamers. It all started in 2014 when the game went to Kickstarter and was successfully funded. With these funds in hands, Fusty Game, Midgar Studio, and The Sidekicks went to work to make something fun, flashy, crazy, and enjoyable. Taking notes from games like Mirror’s Edge and Jet Set Radio they set off on their development journey. Eventually, they went to Steam Early Access to let gamers help influence the title even more, and now, it has officially been released on Steam.
The game takes place on a distant planet in a city called Hover City. This technological city was thriving under the watchful eye of the Galactic Union until a being known as the Great Admin severed communication with them, and now he rules the city as a mighty dictator that believes that fun should be outlawed and all forms of entertainment, banished.
Within the city, a group of rebels has banded together to take down this corrupt leader the only way they know how–by having fun and sabotaging his control.
You are a member of the group known as The Gamers. Using your incredible technology you’ll be able to parkour all over Hover City in order to do races, help citizens, graffiti propaganda from the Great Admin, and sabotage his works so that you can find a way to contact the Galactic Union for help.
There are 9 different characters you can play as in Hover: Revolt of Gamers and each one has their own unique set of skills. Play alone or with friends since the game offers both options. But above all else, have fun and look good doing so.
