The creative director of the original SOCOM games has returned to the tactical, team-based shooter genre with H-Hour: World's Elite for PC.
David Sears, of SOF Studios, was creative director of the SOCOM series on PlayStation 2 while at Zipper Interactive, and he's launched a Kickstarter for H-Hour, which he describes as the spiritual successor to SOCOM.
Sears is after $200,000, and has raised half the target with 12 days to go. If the $200,000 funding target is met Sears will create a playable demo designed to attract venture capital funding to make the entire game, but if $1.5 million is raised through Kickstarter Sears will complete the PC version, and if $2 million is raised a next-gen console version will be made. "PS4 looks like it's going to be popular," Sears said.
