Colourful, High-Speed Action on Show in Hover: Revolt of Gamers Launch Trailer

Hover: Revolt of Gamers

Developer Fusty Game and publisher The Sidekicks have revealed the fast-paced launch trailer for parkour-adventure game Hover: Revolt of Gamers.

Backed by one of the original electronica songs from the game’s soundtrack, the video spotlights the fast-paced action and eye-catching environments that make the game stand out among the crowded field of indie games. The trailer also outlines the multitude of activities that players will get to experience while playing through the game’s 90+ missions, including racing, sneaking, and sabotage, as well as the ability to play in both first-person or third-person, depending on the player’s preferences.

Hover: Revolt of Gamers takes place in a colourful, dystopian world where a shady governmental force known as The Authority has banned gaming and a raft of other leisure activities. In response, players take control of the Gamers, a rebel group aiming to overcome the oppressive regime.

The project is the first PC effort from Fusty Game, a small team housed within Edge of Eternity developer Midgar Studio. Taking to Kickstarter back in 2014, the project raised more than $100,000 before later entering the Steam Early Access program, where development has continued openly for the last two years.

Hover: Revolt of Gamers is available today on PC, with console versions expected to follow later this year. OnlySP’s review of the title will be available in the coming days.

Interview

Troy Baker Discusses His Return as Joel in The Last of Us Part II

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—below, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
