Klei launches paid alpha build of Incognita


4:30 PM on 09.10.2013



Klei Entertainment has opened pre-orders for its work-in-progress tactical espionage game Incognita. $16.99 gets you immediate access to the current alpha, future alpha and beta builds, and the final game when it releases in 2014. Plus, a copy for a friend. I freakin' love when they do that. The final price will be $19.99, so paying early saves you 15 percent.

"What the game will look like in this state is a single (randomly generated) level, with a few agents and little to no progression," writes the company. "The current Alpha build has most of our core tactical and strategic systems, as well as our engine, UI, procedural generation and so on, but is missing some major progression systems and missing most of our content, which will be developed as we get further along in the process. We do have a timeline for some of these features, so we'll share that with you when we can."

I missed my chance to try Incognita at PAX Prime 2013, and while I do want to give this a shot, it's less up my alley than, say, Don't Starve. I think I can wait it out a bit as Klei adds additional features and tightens up the experience before jumping in. Still looks wonderful, though.

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

Ever since Shank 2, Klei Entertainment has really stepped up in my mind as a studio to watch. If you've played either Don't Starve or Mark of the Ninja -- two games that killed it in their respective genres -- you're probably...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

Hard West: Part cowboy XCOM, part High Plains Drifter nightmare

When I first clicked on the Hard West Kickstarter, there was a twinge of disappointment that this wasn't a game about Kanye. I got over it quick, though. I like Westerns, and I like all the reference points this video w...more
