Camouflaj and Logan Games have passed their $500,000 Kickstarter target for iOS stealth survival game Republique.

The current total stands at $501,294 with just six hours to go before funding stops. Fundraising ends at 11pm tonight BST, but Camouflaj can now go into full development knowing the target’s been met.

The Kickstarting began early last month from the studio, founded by ex-Kojima Productions and 343 alumni Ryan Payton, but funding began slowly enough.

It wasn’t until the announcements of a PC and Mac version, as well as the involvement of Metal Gear Solid cast David Hayter and Jennifer Hale, that business began to pick up.

The studio intends to livestream the end of funding online tonight.
