Hover: Revolt of Gamers is a free runner in a futuristic 3D open world and was developed by 3 young independent developers. They have released a gameplay trailer that shows off all of the whacky visuals and mechanics that this game brings, and it looks insane.
A snippet of the description for the game on Steam says the following:
Between the crazy Jet Set Radio, the interactivity of Mirror’s Edge and inspired by films like “The Fifth Element” or “Star Wars”, Hover let you play as a Gamer Team from another world, appalled at the dictatorship in their city.
Totally free in a large futuristic open world city and wearing a special high-tech suit offering you the ability to move around unlike anyone, you will have to impress all the Gamers of the City doing crazy Triks and “Parkours” in order to recruit an impressive team and enrole in more serious missions to overthrow the tyranny.
You will have to locate and infiltrate in the control centers of the anti-video games propaganda, free the citizens confined by the authorities, get back the consoles confiscated from the population, andfinally dethrone the new Mayor at the origin of this whole mess. Many security drones are patrolling city so be alert to the risk of being chased, and be prepared to shake off them.

Condemn (OR) Condone:
This game looks crazy in all of the right ways. I love the mixture of Mirror’s Edge and jet Grind Radio, as it looks like it has resulted in something that is pretty unique. The gaming industry needs more stuff like this.
The judgments are the following:
Condemn – Hate it | (O)r – Dislike it | (OR) – Indifferent | o(R) – Like it | Condone – Love it
