First look at Klei's turn-based tactical game Incognita


2:45 PM on 07.26.2013



So this is what "turn-based tactical espionage" looks like when it's coming from the studio behind Mark of the Ninja and Don't Starve. Klei Entertainment has kindly given us a first look at Incognita with a livestream that I totally missed out on earlier today. Thank goodness for archives!

Even as an early build, this shows well. You'll bring agents into a secure complex with the hope of reaching the top floor while looking for intelligence documents and gear along the way. Thanks to alarms, procedural generation, and permadeath, that's easier said than done.

The mainframe view, which strips out elements of the environment and highlights the important stuff -- items, characters, etc. -- in particular looks really neat. A beta for Incognita is coming out in the next couple months with a final release targeting 2014.

Klei's Incognita offers 'turn-based tactical espionage'

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both. more

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
