Game developer funds iPad title through Kickstarter

Giant Spacekat now hopes to fund PC and Mac versions of Revolution 60.

By Joe Curtis

A game developer has successfully funded an iPad title through Kickstarter.

Giant Spacekat raised the capital to support production of scifi title Revolution 60 in less than a week through the online crowdfunding platform.

The mobile development studio raised the $5,000 so quickly it is able to pursue further funding goals on the website, including reaching $10,000 to create a Mac version of the game, with a PC game already slated for production.

The game follows a female lead character, Holiday, an assassin who must decide between her friends and the mission when she is tasked with regaining control of Revolution 60, an American orbital weapons platform which has drifted off course, threatening an international incident.

The animation is based on the Unreal game engine, and the gameplay is based on the player’s choices to determine what happens.

Brianna Wu, head of development at Giant Spacekat, said: "We’re pleased and very grateful to the players for helping us reach our first funding goal to complete development on Revolution 60 for iPad.

"Now with our stretch goals unlocked, we are looking forward to bringing Revolution 60 to PC and Mac. If our stretch goals are reached every backer will receive a copy of the PC and Mac versions of the game at launch."
