It's easy to get excited about a Kickstarter game, see it backed then forget all about it. Understandable, too, since few of the really "big" Kickstarter games (Star Citizen, Broken Age) have been released. RĂ©publique, however, is just about done, and is looking pretty cool.

Due out on December 19 on iOS (a PC port is coming next year), the high-profile Kickstarter - helmed by former Metal Gear and Halo devs, and starring a stellar voice cast - you're playing the role of an overseer of sorts, helping a girl escape a totalitarian surveillance state by unlocking doors and hacking computers.

It's stealth-meets-survival-horror, though not as you'll know it; the more passive nature of controlling the environment, and not the character, should be interesting.
