A Kickstarter for "hardcore" iOS fans | GoozerNation

Republique is an iOS gaming asking for your sweet dolla dolla bills via KickStarter. If you really want to see a high quality game on the iOS app store, here's a chance to support such a game. Republique is being made by former 343 Industries staffer Ryan Payton. (343 Industries, Culture, Dev, Industry, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, République, Ryan Payton)

kickstarter sounded awesome for games, now it seems like everyone is using it to cash in on cheap quick iOS games. go away.

Yep the creative director that left Halo 4 for not liking its direction used his life savings and sold other possessions to make this. It's obviously a cheap cash in but whatever this site is just full of a bunch of narrow minded people who hate anything that is iOS because it's associated with a phone.

AAA iOS title is laughable. Not sure what it is that he didn't like with halo 4, but this gives me greater confidence that it wasn't because the game had any fundamental flaws.

This game has a 1 million dollar budget, $500,000 from Kickstarter and $500,000 from their own funding sources and isn't supposed to come out until 2013, so I don't consider it either cheap or quick.

"Hardcore iOS fans"

XD LMAO! iOS kickstarter for 500k......yeah have fun with that. Kind of unfortunate because the game itself looks awesome. Fail business decision is fail.

I support Developers doing this, given that they are also to provide something for users to look at and determine if they should donate money.

The thing is I figured after seeing all the news about Project Takedown using Kickstarter that we'd see more of this, and thats fine, except, i didn't donate to Takedown because there wasn't anything but a "promise" of a tactical shooter. Thats all fine and dandy for some people, but I'm not giving my money to developers without seeing something to base my opinion on.

This is a good thing for gamers tho imo because a lot of these devs really want to make a great game, I have no doubt about that, and many want to stay true to a particular genre or idea. Big publishers often end up chasing, for lack of a better example, the 'CoD' train and make developers change their game slightly to cash in on that.

Through Kickstarter type campaigns developers can truley reach their target audience and its the real customers supporting the project which in theory should get a better product in terms of what they really wanted.

Atleast I think anyway.

Is it just me or does that logo look a hell of a lot like the Agent logo?
