Klei Entertainment announces spy game, Incognita

Don’t Starve and Mark of the Ninja developer working on XCOM-inspired espionage game; launching late summer for the PC.

by

Klei Entertainment, the studio responsible for survival game Don't Starve and 2D stealth game Mark of the Ninja is working on a spy-themed game, the developer has announced.

The company’s next project, Incognita, is a turn-based, procedurally generated espionage game that takes cues from the XCOM series. The game will rely heavily on player positioning to succeed.

“Well, we’re still keeping a lot under wraps right now, but I can say a little. Here’s the idea: if you play the new XCOM--which is a f****** amazing game--it’s 90 percent positioning. Ten percent information gathering and 90 percent positioning,” Klei co-founder Jamie Cheng told Rock, Paper, Shotgun in an interview.

The team is currently aiming for a late summer early launch while the game is still in development, and is targeting an initial PC release, followed by Mac, and, the developer hopes, a Linux version at a later stage.

Klei Entertainment never fails to entertain me....First, Anger driven revenge (Shank), then a true stealth (Mark of the ninja) after that, a real-time survivor simulator (Don't starve)......Now, conspiracy theory (Incognita). You people do know well about how to keep me entertained.

Hated Eets, but after Mark of the Ninja, I'll give this a chance. The comparison to X-COM just ensured that.

Sounds good. Heard good thinks about Mark of the Ninja and I was just playin Don't Starve yesterday.

Plus I love Spy-games and XCOM. The only thing I don't like about this game is how it isn't out yet :L

I don't know anything about Don't Starve, but Mark of the Ninja was fucking fantastic.  I'll be keeping an eye out for this game and see how it turns out.

Incognita?

Sounds like something that a hipster mom would name her daughter.

The top down Sim-style picture intrigues me. And I love turn based strategy games.

Hope it turns out well. Mark of the Ninja is easily one of the best games of the generation, didn't care as much for their other games but they were fun.

If you are a stealth fan. Then you owe it to yourself to play Mark Of The Ninja.

@evil-zodiark No it didn't. Only ignorant people think that's the case. Or to put it in other terms "Bro do you even PC?"

@evil-zodiark 

very true even if in most cases the games are just sad clones of X-com with a different skin, I guess that's the price of success though..

@xeoneex66 Turn based crap? What kind of games you like? Dress up games?

@xeoneex66 Could you please point me in the direction where I can find, to use your words, all this turn based crap? I wouldn't mind.

@IndySandbagTrik @xeoneex66 First off... Baldur's gate is NOT turn based.  You can set it to pause under certain conditions.  This by no means defines it as turn based.  Second Baldur's gate is fucking awesome.  I can play it any day vs the shit that is out nowadays.

@Skhuff @xeoneex66 Actually no, Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, the Elder Scrolls games.  Games like this that ARN"T turned based piles of dung.

@debryson @xeoneex66 I'm not refering to RTS's.  I like games that dont have turn based it makes things alot interesting and smoother gameplay vs stop and go stop and go.  Boring blech.
