App Description

"Special, new, and necessary." - IGN
"A must-play experience in 2014." - Polygon
"Shaping up to be a masterpiece." - Touch Arcade (5/5)
"This is the App Store's next must-have high-end game." - CNET
"Sets a new benchmark for mobile game quality." - The Washington Post

Intense, thrilling, and topical, RÉPUBLIQUE is a stealth-action game that explores the perils of government surveillance in the Internet Age.

You receive a desperate call from Hope, a mysterious woman trapped inside an oppressive totalitarian state. By hacking into the nation's elaborate surveillance network and taking control, you guide Hope through a web of danger and deception across five thrilling episodes. (Purchase future episodes with the discounted Season Pass.)

Challenging puzzles and complex strategy are offset by the simplicity of the game's “One Touch” controls, developed over two years by industry veterans (Metal Gear Solid 4, Halo 4, F.E.A.R., Black & White 2, SOCOM).

With striking visuals, a haunting, atmospheric score, and an all-star cast, RÉPUBLIQUE is one of the most ambitious games ever developed for iOS.
