      Nice to see Republque is coming to VR.
      Will there be support for the Oculus Rift with Touch in the near future?

    2. Nathan Benner on February 10

      So I was going through my Kickstarted projects and realized I never received my physical Journal reward as part of my original pledge. Not sure if this is being monitored still, but I'd like to get that part of the reward if possible. Congratulations on the success thus far!

    3. Christoph Zürcher on October 12, 2017

      Congratulations for the GearVR announcement! Now we finally know what you have been talking about in the podcast ;).

      Guess I'll never try what I supported as I refuse to use Steam as well as to purchase any Apple device. Maybe I one day can have my backer reward as an xBox code — if it gets ported ...

    5. Mike Snyder on December 29, 2016

      And this is just an aside, but I ended up waiting playing the game when it released on PS4, and it was fantastic. An underrated gem, and among the best results of a Kickstarter effort I've seen.

    6. Mike Snyder on December 29, 2016

      @Zeanith -I received mine, so at least I can say they did ship. I somehow thought there would be a disc, not an empty box with a Steam code, but it's a very nice empty box. Or maybe a soundtrack was inside. I forget. But anyway, you might try messaging them on Twitter or Facebook or something?

      I never received my collector's edition. I'm pretty fed up with this company but at this point I just want what I payed for.

      Email-based newsletter? Would be great if you could support news feeds (RSS/Atom).

    9. Camouflaj Creator on December 7, 2016


      Since the Kickstarter campaign has largely ended, we are actually going to transition updates to a regular Camouflaj newsletter to be distributed apart from the Kickstarter site. You won't need to use social media for the newsletter. This change hasn't taken effect yet, but we will announce here when it does!

    10. Martin O
      on December 6, 2016

      Please announce future projects here too!
      I don't use social media.

      Also +1 for new podcasts!

      Thank you for the great words on the Manifesto! As a piece of original fiction set in République's universe as well as a strategy guide, we put a lot of love into its design and content.

      Positive reviews on Metacritic actually help us continue to make similar high quality games and supplementary materials. If you have time, we'd love if you share your opinion online.

      Thank you so much for your support, now and along the way.

    12. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      Since the Manifesto is a strategy guide in addition to an actual book, reading the Manifesto first will spoil some of the game experience. We recommend using the maps while also playing the game for full immersion.

      The actual text, penned by the Overseer, does not spoil anything in the game. It adds flavor and weight to the République universe whether you play the game or read the book first.

      Thank you so much for your support!

    13. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      We're delighted that you like the Collector's Edition, and we understand the desire for a physical copy of the game. We actually came up with the Collector's Edition out of appreciation for games as physical objects.

      While we were only able to offer physical copies for the PS4 version through our publisher, GungHo, we are glad we could make the game tangible through the Manifesto for our PC, iOS, and Android backers.

      Thank you for your support! We couldn't have done it without you.

    14. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      Fangamer did an excellent job with the Collector's Edition's packaging. We're proud to have collaborated with them to ensure the best quality for the long-awaited physical rewards.

      We'll announce our future projects through social media -- @Camouflaj on Twitter and Camouflaj on Facebook. Keep an eye on those accounts for new information!

      Thank you so much for your support. We couldn't have done it without you.

    15. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      It sounds like some backers at the digital tier are interested in physical copies of the Manifesto. You might find interested parties in the comments of the most recent Kickstarter update (as of 12-5-16).

      Thank you for your support!

    16. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      We made sure that the packaging would meet the standards of the Overseer himself. While only the PS4 version has a physical disc, your support made the deluxe package a reality at all. Thank you for your support!

    17. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      From your support to the final game, we're glad that you joined us on the journey. We'll announce future projects on social media -- @Camouflaj on Twitter and Camouflaj on Facebook. Keep an eye on those accounts for news!

    18. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      We're very glad that your rewards arrived unblemished. We put a lot of love and care into the physical rewards, and we packed them securely to ensure that you received them in the same state that they posted in.

      Thank you for your support!

    19. Camouflaj Creator on December 5, 2016


      Thanks for checking with us on the status of your backer rewards. If you didn't receive your copy of the game, please contact us at We'll make sure you get your rewards.

    20. Fares Fayad on November 24, 2016

      That collectors' edition looks superb. Unfortunately, I have ran out of space and thinking of letting it go to someone else. Any takers?

    21. Matthew Smith on October 28, 2016

      It may have taken four years, but damn, that collector's edition was worth the wait! Came absolutely perfect (thanks Fangamer!), and it looks gorgeous to boot! Definitely getting a slot of honor on the wall with some of the other really nice collector's editions. The outer box is both stylish and durable, the guide (although small) has so much detail in it I can't complain. Haven't cracked open the CD/DVD pouch yet, but can't wait to. Can't wait for the next Camoflaj game.

      @Michael Hartmann:
      Yes I know, it's not pretty but sometimes it makes sense, e.g. when you want to release the physical stuff at the same time as the digital version (i.e. the physical can never be a proper final release).
      But in this case the last update on GOG was 2016-03-22, so they could have pressed it on DVD (btw. it fits perfectly on one, which is also much cheaper than a Blu-ray).

      The most optimal solution would have been to include the (fully DRM-free) GOG version on DVD / USB-stick plus a GOG code (well at least in my opinion, I know there are also people preferring Steam).

    23. Michael Hartmann
      on October 27, 2016

      @Martin: Thanks, I must have missed that update. And the reward description is ambiguous enough that this still counts as delivering what they promised because the code for the game is indeed inside the box. It's just silly to release a physical edition of the game without the game being a physical object. It's like releasing a DVD with all the bonus material but without the movie on the DVD.

      @Michael Hartmann
      Update #55 lists and shows the content of the Collector’s Edition:
      - République Digital Deluxe Edition *Steam Code*
      - République Manifesto from Future Press
      - République Complete 5-Disc Soundtrack
      - République Making of Featurette Blu-ray

      -> The game is not included on a storage medium.

    25. Michael Hartmann
      on October 26, 2016

      The Collector's Edition just arrived. It looks beautiful and obviously a lot of thought went into the design of the box. Thanks to great packaging it arrived in perfect condition. It is almost perfect. I am disappointed that the game isn't actually included in the box, though. There's a Steam code, but it's ridiculous that the box is missing a physical copy of the game. (I'm kinda hoping that you guys will tell me that I'm blind and it is included, but I don't see it anywhere in the box.)

    26. Insert Disk 2 on October 25, 2016

      Just received the collector's edition. Very pretty.
      Whoever made that packaging deserves a medal. Thanks !

      I've also received my Collector's Edition! It looks great!
      Also great packaging, nothing should happen to it except when the whole package gets lost.

    28. Jonathan Lumb on October 25, 2016

      Got my Collector's Edition yesterday. Very good looking book. I had to laugh when I saw the date on the Thank You note too, but kudos for seeing this project through to the end.

    29. Terence Bowlby on October 24, 2016

      Does it make more sense to read the book before playing or after playing or at some point during play?

    30. Christoph Zürcher on October 22, 2016

      Got my Collector's Edition today, which concludes one hell of a ride following the project. All the best to the team for their next ventures.

    31. Michael Lerner on October 19, 2016

      Received my journal today. I am impressed by how it was packed. There were four layers in total: bubble-wrap package, cardboard, then another bubble-wrap package, and then the USPS Priority mail box with a few pieces of packing peanuts to make sure it was snug.
      Probably one reason why my package arrived in PERFECT condition. I've received packages from other Kickstarters which have had minor blemishes to major damage en-route. Wasn't very fun getting items replaced as needed. In this case I was extremely happy to receive a "MINT" condition Kickstarter reward. Not to even mention how cool the entire set looks. Kudos!

    32. Mystakill on October 15, 2016

      I received my journal yesterday. Very high quality materials and binding. Still working my way through it, as it's jam-packed with maps, notes, ramiblings & more. There was even an extra Steam key, which I'll give to a gamer friend of mine.

      I do have to say, you guys did an excellent job. This looks pretty very premium and attractive.

    35. Russell Brown on October 11, 2016

      Mine came in today. Look forward to checking it out. Anyone wanna buy my physical goods? I don't really have room for more collectibles in my house, especially ones I have been waiting on for 4 years.

      Much crap that a console version came out before the backers even received their goods.

      Hey Brian,

      We're really sorry for the long wait on your Kickstarter goods. We really appreciate all your support! Republique would not have been possible without your pledge!

      The good news is that we're preparing to start shipping your goods out in the next week or two. Please be on the lookout for a backer update early next week with everything you'll need to know.

      Send out the physical items!!!!!

    43. celicynd on September 24, 2016

      Oh look... The Camouflaj twitter feed is again promising an update "soon" to someone. Of course, that's the same thing Ryan Payton said back in June when I made a comment on twitter about it... then blocked me when I called him out over two months later in September when there was no update.

      This is completely unacceptable. The fact that they shipped an edition of the game to people (for a version that didn't even exist when the kickstarter began), that includes one of the main items that physical backers are supposed to get is a load of crap. Good luck getting any funding for future endeavors after this failed promises campaign.

    44. Eric Kozlowsky on September 8, 2016

      Seriously? What's going on with the physical rewards? I backed the 125 tier and I have received NOTHING!

      The estimated delivery was SEPTEMBER 2012! 2012! That was FOUR YEARS ago!!!!

      best part is...the people that bought the "Contraband Edition" from NISA got everything in the Collectors Edition months ago...

    46. Mike Waters on August 31, 2016

      I got a refund for my unfulfilled collector's edition

      anybody in the UK, you have rights laid out in the Sale of Goods Act 1979. Quote these rights and be prepared to take legal action if Camouflaj don't honour your refund.

      There should be similar litigation for other countries - look it up, talk to legal representation and fight for your rights to not be ripped off.

    47. Jonathan Nguyen on August 27, 2016

      I guess it's nice that we have the "Final print" PDF of the Manifesto (thx JediaKyrol for the heads-up!), I just wish someone from Camouflaj had bothered to be the ones to announce it... let alone tell us whether or not they'll actually be fulfilling the physical rewards...

      So checking my Humble library...noticed I now had République Manifesto CH 1-5 (FINAL PRINT VERSION) I guess "technically" I got what I backed for... ... ...just have to print it myself.
      ... ... ...Actually...I don't ever remember hearing if the $5,000+ backers ever actually got what they backed for.
