Oh, what's that, you've been busy working on a brand new, completely overhauled and really rather fetching 'illustrative' look? Well, alright, I'll let you off this time though.

Fortunately for the SpyParty-oblivious, Indiegames have spotted that Mr Hecker has posted a tutorial video for his early-access beta folk, and that gives us a good impression of the game's systems, as well as an idea of how to…

It's only later that Andy's Delightful Wife is alerted by the frantic yelping of a distressed pussycat. We're about to play SpyParty at my hotel room when the alert comes through, leading to a frantic cross-San Diego dash to try and…
