Independent studio Camouflaj has launched a Kickstarter funding campaign for the "AAA iOS Experience" République, a story-driven title focused on stealth and survival.

Partnering with production house Logan (the studio responsible for the memorable iPod "silhouette" ads), Camouflaj hopes to build an action game that centers around a believable, non-sexualized female lead and does not emphasize killing as part of its core mechanics. Themes such as government surveillance and voyeurism are tackled throughout the proposed 4-6 hour campaign.

République's funding goal is $500,000. The team is offering a variety of pledge rewards, including companion books, iPhone cases, posters, and in-game appearances. A downloadable copy of the game will be given to backers who pledge $10 or more.
