Republique’s Success Demonstrates How a Kickstarter Can Adapt
It may have cut it close, but Camouflaj’s debut title, Republique, managed to reach its Kickstarter goal in the final hours before its deadline today. The project kicked off a month ago seeking $ 500,000 and, after an initial surge of pledges, found itself struggling to attract backers. Rather than accept the fact that there was not half a million dollars out there to fund a hardcore iOS title like this, Camouflaj adapted and now finds itself padding that $ 500,000 with additional pledges ahead of its 3pm Pacific deadline.
Republique was initially pitched as an iOS game combining stealth and survival horror in the style of a game from the PlayStation era. With an estimated budget of over $ 1 million, Camouflaj turned to Kickstarter to come up with $ 500,000 to help ensure it would not have to compromise creative control or hand over ownership of the IP.
