This Post Will Self-Destruct in Ten Minutes: Invisible, Inc.

By Adam Smith on March 14th, 2014 at 8:00 am.

Due to the explosive nature of this post’s contents, we’re working to a tight schedule here. I’m going to cut straight to the chase and I suggest you read as fast as you possibly can. The mighty Klei Entertainment sent an encrypted message to my neural inbox to let me know that their turn-based tactical espionage game, Invisible, Inc., is now available in alpha form. You can pre-purchase from the official website, which will give you immediate access to the game’s current build by means of a redeemable Steam key. The game will be available to buy directly through Steam Early Access in the near(ish) future. A new trailer, below, shows a spot of isometric infiltration and contains music that would fit happily in a new No One Lives Forever game.

Looks good but not quite good enough to distract me from the fact that I’m not currently playing a new No One Lives Forever game.

TICK TICK TICK

Oh yeah. The exploding post.

Finding that montage has made me the internet just a little more than I did yesterday.

    Hate ? Love ? Abuse ?

    Looks cool. I’m not buying early access games, but I’ll keep an eye on this.

    hmmm, No One Lives Forever, mmmhm those games were great.

        Ok, that’s it!
        When I get home from work I’ll dig out my old NOLF2 CDs and reinstall it.

    A new No One Lives Forever? Now that’s a Kickstarter I’d support.

    In terms of art style and setting, this game sort of reminds me of Team Fortress 2 back when Team Fortress 2 wasn’t completely lolrandom. But sadly, turn-based tactical combat is not really my genre. If it’s priced in the area of ten bucks, though, I might be picking it up anyway just for the art.

      I’d say it’s more Evil Genius.

      • Kollega says:

        Actually, it’s at about the midpoint between those two. The shading and setting is Team Fortress 2, and the perspective and angular faces are Evil Genius.

        But either way, both of those were good, so who cares which one it resembles more?

    been keeping an eye on this i’ll skip early access but i cant imagine a scenario were i don’t buy this game when it releases.

    Weren’t people saying before that they didn’t like the new name for this?
    That is madness. Madness, I tell you!

    Descriptions of this game piqued my interest, but I hadn’t seen any footage of it before this video. It looks absolutely delightful! Sign me up for some beautifully visualised turn-based sleuthing.

    Can’t help it. It looks like that man has a massive streak of snot hanging off his jaw

    Assuming everything goes the way it seems to be, I will eventually buy this game, one way or another. Careful use of movement distances and timing to do stealth or use line of sight to get extreme one sided advantage is what I like to do in turn based games anyway, and a game directly tied to that idea sounds brilliant.
