About This Game

Take control of Invisible's agents in the field and infiltrate the world's most dangerous corporations. Stealth, precision, and teamwork are essential in high-stakes, high-profit missions, where every move may cost an agent their life.

Key Features

  • Character selection: Start with any of the 10 unlockable agents in the game, plus 6 agent variants, and 6 starting programs to crack corporate security.
  • Deep customization of builds: each play through is different as you create your own strategy using agents, items, augments and programs, and adapt to your surroundings.
  • Randomly generated world: locations, threats, and loot are randomly generated so each playthrough is vastly different and you’ll never get complacent.
  • Choose your own game mode: with 5 different game modes and extensive custom generation options, each player can play the way they prefer.
  • Fully animated cutscenes and voice over: with hundreds of lines of voice over, great animation, and fully animated cutscenes, we didn’t spare any expense to make an immersive experience.

I know loads of my friends have this on their wishlist, for heaven's sake pull the trigger. You won't find a better turn-based stealth game. Shadowrun wishes it got things this right.

Amazing turn-based stealth game. Are you willing to sacrifice teammates so more important characters survive?

Game's too short, though.

Invisible, Inc. is one of the best-designed games I've ever played. I am thrilled and challenged by its turn-based stealth combat. I don't see myself exhausting its many possibilities for a long time due to its massive replayability.

In the game you control several agents trying to infiltrate a corporate black site. As opposed to many games with stealth elements, you don't usually having the option of just going in and shooting everybody. You are fragile and outnumbered, and your arsenal of weapons (especially lethal weapons) is quite restricted. Instead, your most robust tools are your ability to hide using the generous cover system and your ability to observe the situation and plan ahead. (Not to belittle the variety of equipment and hacking tools you can use to get an edge) You can spend action points to peek around corners and to predict enemy movements, and in the end form plans to get yourself out of extremely dangerous situations.

However, the game is quite challenging because your strong tactical options in the short-term coexist with long-term strategic pressures. In Invisible, Inc. the ticking alarm counter means you can neither act too slowly or too quickly. Ghosting through the level entirely undetected reduces the chance you'll be caught in the short run, but in the long run taking too long means enforcer spawns that home in on your position. Similarly, getting all of the loot scattered across a level takes precious time and thus accrues additional risk. However, missing out on that loot just means you're that much less prepared for the endgame.

The game is procedurally-generated, meaning that no two levels will ever be the same. On the campaign-level, you have some control over your initial starting agents and hacking tools (these get unlocked by finishing campaigns even if you lose). However, most of your team's capabilities rely on assets acquired either in the randomly-generated stores or the mission objectives. This randomness means you have to adapt to the options presented. The only thing that is always fixed is the objectives for the first and last level (I haven't played the DLC level which I think is also fixed), and the plot. The developers have included quite a few options for custom campaign difficulty, so you have quite a bit of freedom to adjust certain gameplay elements to your desires.

I have seen some criticism for the fact that the game's story is short and is the same every time, but I'm happy with the length of a campaign and do not think that a procedurally-generated story would be possible with the same level of polish. At the end of the day, I value the gameplay over other all considerations. I will note that the game looks great while still running well on my aging laptop. Overall, I feel this game was an excellent purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for an engaging (if sometimes stressful) turn-based game.

This is a hard one. I had fun playing this game and I played for quite a long time... It is so GD hard. I played on easy and it felt like what normal should be at least. Playing at the "normal" level? Forget it. I was so frustrated at the game that I was done.

I know the counters for this argument. Yeah, yeah. "Get good", etc. Whatever. I like a game to be challenging, but this one is just unforgiving to the max. I've never played a game where failure was punished this severely. I've never played a turn based game before. Maybe that was my problem. I had to play this because I'm a stealth junkie and such a fan of Mark of the Ninja.

I recommend this game, but I only found it fun on the lowest level.

So I've seen a couple of negative reviews about this game revolving around the low amount of players who have managed to complete it on the extra hard difficulties.

You know you are scraping the bottom of the criticism barrel when your major complaint is about Steam Achievements being hard to get.

Before the Contingency Plan DLC, the highest difficulty setting was Expert and it's still only been completed by 2.5% of people. The higher difficulties than that don't change the story ending, or the actual story in anyway, so the achievement just adds a few millimeters to your e-peen.

The game is superb, pick it up on sale with Contingency Plan, you won't regret it.

Unfortunately, I must go against the masses and say I ended up uninstalling Invisible soon after I bought it. I found the artwork and athmosphere to be too childish and naive. It's not that I dislike cartoonish style as such. But Invisible Inc was just too "Disney" for me. Together with a lack of a good storyline noted by many other reviewers, the game just did not have the backbone to make it worth my time. The strategic mechanics, while fun, failed to make up for complete lack of immersion in the game world. I would pick up something like Frozen Synapse over Invisible Inc any day. It is too bad since I really wanted to like this one... Sorry!

Early Access Review
Posted: August 19, 2014
Invisible, Inc. is a roguelike, turn-based, strategy stealth game. Moving past the buzzwords, it's a game where you move your units through randomized levels by observing the patterns of enemy movement and then avoiding them on your way to the exit point of the level. If you're lucky, you'll find some items or cash along the way. As you go further in the game, you face more and more dangerous enemies. Eventually you get spotted, die, and have to start again from the beginning. You do that last bit a lot, actually.

I've noticed a lot people assuming that the game is similar to Shadowrun Returns or XCom due to the isometric perspective. It really isn't, and if you go in trying to play it that way you will end up being frustrated. Invisible, Inc. is a stealth game and a roguelike. Combat is difficult and usually not an effective way to deal with enemies. Also, it is a roguelike, to the extent that word still means anything, and you will most likely fail a lot as you learn how to play, and sometimes just because the random number generator screwed you over. How much you enjoy it will depend on your tolerance for that sort of thing.

Also, this being early access, there's always the question of whether the creators are going to actually finish the game. Klei is a pretty well established company at this point, and they previously did a public beta similar to early access with their game Don't Starve. Personally, I think they're trustworthy based on that track record. Not that I'm an expert or anything.

It's like XCOM and FTL got drunk and started making out, and then Mark of the Ninja walked in on them, but everyone was cool about it

All right, so I do recommend the game, but I'll say right away that it's easily not for everyone. In short, if you're expecting a well-pieced together story, you won't find it here, but if you're after a rogue-like turn-based dungeon crawler, then this game will be right up your alley.

The presentation is probably the game's biggest strength. It's put together well in shiny visuals, clean UI, and a fun gameplay concept that takes isometric turn-based combat and makes it stealth-oriented, where you're better off avoiding the enemies rather than engaging in fights. The game is fun, if you enjoy turn-based tactics that let you plan your every ally's move.

The gameplay concept is solid, but some of its execution was a fair bit annoying to me personally. A lot of the challenge presented felt simply artificial and unfair. The raising security level each and every turn forces you to rush each mission. Exploration is simply not rewarded under this system, because the longer you stay on your mission, the more security measures will be added after every few turns, which will eventually put you in a tight spot. I never came across any way for me to freeze or reduce the security level. It's just a rush against time, but on turn-based basis.

I was also not fond of the fact that I couldn't buy any equipment for my party in between missions. The only time I could do it was if I happened to find an automated shop during missions, when I had virtually no money to spend. Of 4 agents I had in my missions, 2 were running about without weapons and just being used to sit on the guards. This brings me to another annoyance. If you don't have a weapon, you have no way to deal with the guards. No idea what sort of agents these are who can't even take out a guard from behind unless they have a tazer. Things start to get more complex when you meet enemies in armour, who are invulnerable to most weapons, and your only chance is to play a cat and mouse game where you're constantly running away.

But, I really did like being able to improve my agents in between missions by upgrading their stats, even if stats themselves did feel a bit unbalanced. Speed felt like the most useful stat by far, since it gave you more action points, with hacking being a close second, since everything requires hacking. But strength and anarchy felt next to useless. Strength only lets you carry more items, and anarchy makes you steal slightly more money from the guards.

And lastly the story, well, it was mostly on the background. The most of it you'll see is in the opening and ending cutscenes. But the rest of the game you're just dungeon-crawling really. It was pretty neat to get to pick which mission to do from a wide selection. It's very non-linear and each mission simply increases your assets - either you rescue an extra agent to add to the team, or you find some new shiny gear to use. Though because of that, it also meant that there were no story-related reasons to do any mission. You could expect the same approach in each one and merely doing as many as you can to pass 72 hours in-game before having to do the final one with what you've got.

I was also hoping there'd be some more character development. All the agents in your team were just mute puppets for you to control. They never showed any personality or had anything to say aside from a witty one-liner at the start of each mission.

Having said this, if you are a dungeon-crawl fanatic and like challenge, you should enjoy this game very much. It has higher difficulty modes, as well as an endless mode too where you have to survive for as long as you can. Overall, it's a worthy game to try and I have had my fair share of fun with it, even though the main campaign is rather on the short side.

HOLY CRAP.......this game is awesome! I am one mission from the end and that last one persuaded me to leave a review. I knew I would like this game since I loved what Klei has done before with Don't Starve. This game is half like Klei's Don't Starve and half like XCOM. Both of those games I have sunk MAJOR hours into. Basically anything can happen...and you're punished for it just like Don't Starve. But you learn from it and it makes you want to keep trying (Till you become a PRO secret agent). There really is no checkpoint system unless you use "rewinds" to go back a turn...but even those are limited. But the game requires ALOT of strategy if you're trying to be stealthy. It is not an unforgiving Stealth game though...it gives room for some FUN if you need to blow up some robots / doors / or evil secret agents. Its amazing. Try it out if you liked Don't Starve or XCOM. The turn based strategy & the random FUN/anarchy the game offers is F'ing Brilliant.....buy it / try it!!!

Turn-based tactical stealth with procedurally generated levels, variable item availability, and numerous characters.

Not for everyone, but I liked it a lot.
