République is a stealth survival horror video game, developed by Camouflaj LLC and Logan Games. The game was originally announced for iOS devices but has since expanded to PC and Mac computers. A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign was completed successfully on May 11, 2012, raising over $500,000. The first episode, Exordium, was released on iOS on December 19, 2013, with a release for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X scheduled for 2014.


République combines elements of stealth action with survival horror. Players communicate with the main character, Hope, through their phone or computer, in order to help her escape.[1][2] The player controls surveillance cameras in the fictional totalitarian state of République in order to monitor Hope's actions, as well as hack into various electronic devices.[3] The interface that the player must use is the "OMNI View" software, which allows them to lock and unlock doors, distract patrolling enemies, and obtain information. In some situations, the player must upgrade their OMNI View to higher versions, enabling them to access areas and nodes with stronger security. In the PC and Mac versions, players will be able to access multiple cameras at once.[4]


Setting and charactersEdit

République takes place in an unnamed totalitarian state (similar to George Orwell's 1984[5]), within a facility called "Metamorphosis".[6] Here, the Prizrak, the people of the totalitarian state, perform mysterious experiments on "Pre-Cals", people who were born and raised in the facility.[7] One Pre-Cal woman, Hope (voiced by Rena Strober), manages to contact the player through their phones, and requests them to help her escape from Metamorphosis.[8] She and the player receive assistance from Cooper , an American operative who is working undercover in Metamorphosis. Other characters include Daniel Zager (voiced by David Hayter), a rebel who leaves audio logs behind for Hope and the player;[9][7] and Mireille Prideaux (voiced by Jennifer Hale), who serves as Hope's caretaker.[8][10][11]


In Episode 1: Exordium , the player accepts a call from an unknown person, and discovers a live video feed of Hope, who pleads them for help.[12] Hacking the room's security camera, the player watches on as Mireille enters the room and confronts Hope with a "defaced" book containing Zager's words.[13] After Mireille sends her to a confinement cell, Cooper discovers Hope's phone, and manages to slip it (and the player) back to her.[14] After the player hacks the cell door open, Hope leaves the cell, with the player watching her through the security cameras. Cooper contacts the player through text-to-speech, claiming that he wants to help Hope escape from Metamorphosis, and gives the player tips and useful information as they progress through the facility.[15]
