“We’ve had a lot of interest in
Revolution 60 from the beginning of the project, and we
are excited about the prospect of using the Kickstarter funding to
polish the game and add elements to deepen the rich gameplay and
storyline”, said Brianna Wu, Head of Development at Giant
Spacekat. “Now with a PC and Mac version also on the horizon,

Years in the future, in
Revolution 60 an American orbital weapons platform has
drifted off course, threatening an international incident.
Chessboard, a special ops group led by an artificial intelligence,
has tasked a team to rendezvous with the station and regain
control. In this crucial mission players are cast as Holiday, a
Chessboard assassin who must decide if her loyalty is to her
friends or to the mission. Featuring an all female cast starring
anime legends Amanda Winn-Lee and Marieve Herrington, players
undertake a series of missions, and make difficult moral choices
that have significant effects on the game outcome so that every
ending is different.
Revolution 60 is a story of intense character conflict where the
main character lives or dies based on the player’s choices.
Featuring some of the most complex animation on iOS to date,
including full facial animation using Unreal,
Revolution 60 also features intuitive, fluid combat,
optimized for touch screen. Featuring detailed animations using the
Unreal engine and gameplay that is accessible to the casual iOS
user as well as mechanics suited to hardcore players.
