What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Klei was among the first developers to release a game into Early Access with Don't Starve, and the feedback we received helped us to vastly improve the game before launch. We're doing it again with our procedural stealth game, and we know that community feedback is going to be huge to make this game the best it can be. Thanks community!”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have a plan to complete our core set of content in early 2015, and we will be adjusting our plan based on feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have a lot more content, including: more playable agents, more mission locations, a final boss mission, more upgrades, another corporation, and more enemies for you to die by.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes 4 playable agents, a whole host of programs and upgrades, 3 corporations, a Story Mode, and an unlockable Endless Mode. Even in Alpha, many fans have played for hours upon hours, so feel free to jump in and let us know what you think!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is $19.99, but during Early Access it will be $15.99.”

Early Access Review
Invisible, Inc. is a stealth tactical turn based game from Klei Entertainment, notable to me for Don't Starve.

It isn't terribly fleshed out yet, but what is there -- the stealth-focused completely unforgiving rogue gameplay, agent trait management, equipment management, and 'Icognito' mode (the hacking mechanism) -- is really, really fun. Even if they don't add many more features (as I write this, in a week a major 'warez' based update is coming out) it's still a really enjoyable, deep thinking game. It has even taken the place of X-Com for the time being, for those times I want my turn based tactical combat fix.

Another reason it really came to my attention is the hard focus on stealth gameplay -- alot like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell -- but with a charming, cartoony art style. Your agents will end up being found and mercilessly gunned down as your Central Operator expresses her disappointment in your performance. And then you begin again with a fresh new team, in a fresh new environment (did I mention its PROCEDURALLY GENERATED which is something X-Com was never able to master) to raid, pillage and escape from various corporate facilities.

It's also a game that makes you say "Just one more turn" and staying up far later than intended playing it. If any of what I've said above peaks your interest, it get's a solid Recommend from me.

Try picking it up on sale for insane value, but it's totally worth the $15.99 it is now.

"Turn Based" and “Stealth" are not two styles you’d think go together. Then you play Invisible Inc. and feel real tension when you click the END TURN Button.

One of the few Early Access games that I’m playing in anticipation of the full release.

Early Access Review
I have only played this game for a small amount of time, and I do have a few other things to try out for it, but here is my review on the game, Invisible, Inc.

First thoughts, this game is challenging and even sometimes unfair because of how hard and tricky it can be to complete the objectives, not just partially, but completely. It is very punishing for if you make mistakes, such as not looking before entering a room, or for not closing the door behind you as you ran pass it. However, this game is somewhat like a game of chess. You have to think ahead, plan on what to do if certain events occur, and know when to stay down and wait, and when to be aggressive and go for the push. With that said, this game will not do well for those who play without thinking, or jump first, look second.


Gameplay: Invisible, Inc. is a top-down isometric game that is turn-based, meaning that after you do whatever it is you do, the enemy has their turn to do whatever it is they do. Also, this is a rogue-style game, so you will die often, and when you do, you will start from the very beginning. In terms of mechanics, you pick to play with two agents who each have their own little niche in things. One agent has better movement ability, so he can move farther and let others move farther too. Another agent can scan for computers and electronics in a certain radius. Aside from that, the agents all have their own, slightly unique, stats. The stats are broken down to Stealth (affects movement), Inventory (storage space), Anarchy (affects stealing traits), and Hacking (affects hacking skills). You earn money to buy upgrades.

There are also items and weapons that can be used to assist you in the break-in. These range from lethal weapons such as pistols and rifles, to non lethal weapons, such as paralyzers and target marking guns. There are also tools to be used in helping such as an invisible cloaking device, items to instantly hack a computer or camera, or a noise distracter to draw the attention away from you. With storage being limited, you have to think wisely about what to buy/take and what to sell or not take.

Aside from tools and weapons, there are collectables to steal that will fetch a nice sum of money, an even hostages to rescue, who can help reveal more locations for you to break into.


Graphics: Just looking at the pictures on the store page should give you a good enough idea on what to expect. IMO, the good thing about graphics like these, is that they are unique enough to give it its own style and not rely on 'super 4k HD parallax & mega bloom" style of graphics, and thus keeps the focus on the game itself, rather than the looks. And of course, people with weaker performing computers, can easily run this game.

Sound/music: Not many sounds or music things going on but the current sounds that are heard, are good in that they make it easy to tell what it is that is going on when you hear it, like the sound of quick loud footsteps means a target is running, instead of walking. Or the Alert, target spotted, sound played when you get spotted. There is very little variety, if any, music, but that keeps the atmosphere focused. Personally, I wouldn't mind there be more styles of music, or a music style change after the guards have spotted you for the first time (kind of like how payday the heist was)

Other thoughts: This review will be updated sometime after the big big update that is set for sept. 30. Since there are hints for new things coming, I will most likely change this if it adds more stuff to the game. Until then, I would like to point out that this is an EA game, and it is clear that it is not complete. What I mean by this, is that the story mode of this game, is short. After you complete, you unlock Endless Mode. And after playing through it a few times, there is nothing much to do. The levels are randomly generated I believe, and that does give it a nice 'new ffel' to things, but the building tiles used for each 'unique' place, are pretty similar and it can be repetitive. Also, being randomly generated, there are times where the AI or the setup of the guards, is just outright, impossible to counter, and usually ends up being a game where you either all die together, or one person makes a break for it, but make sure to not get spotted, or else you have one action to do before you get shot.



Overall: This is a great turn-based stealth game that has a lot of potential, and in my opinion, is an example of an EA game, done right. Hopefully this next update will add the amount of stuff that it is showing. Til then, I'm just going to try out new things and see how it goes.

Even at this stage of Early Access, Invisible, Inc. is the best Tactical Espionage Action game I've played since Metal Gear Solid. If you're at all fond of turn based squad control games, or at all into stealth, I highly recommend you get this game.

Early Access Review
I'm constantly amazed at how often I'm sucked into this gem of a game. Even as an early access release, the developers have done a fine job crafting the entire stealth experience. I can't count the number of times I've found my heart beating a little faster knowing that I'd just gotten myself into a terrible, terrible position that I could have avoided.

While the game's difficulty is high, that's to be expected from a roguelike where you are expected to die - and die often. Yet getting back into Invisible, Inc.'s various scenarios is always a joy. There's an excellent sense of strategy in choosing your agents, your hacking programs, and then slowly amassing your own collection of gadgets and stat upgrades to help you deal with the various threats in the game. Choose wisely, and the right moves and gadgets may allow you to rescue yourself from utter defeat.

And the best part? With each build update, the game just keeps getting better and better, with more things to do and more toys to play with.

Early Access Review
Invisible Inc is one hell of a strategy game. Every move counts. Every turn counts. Every detail in preparation, be it the equipment you choose, the mission type, security level or travel time matters. One single mistake can mean the difference between a massive reward or a botched op.

The game uses an alert level system which increases at every turn, pushing the player to act before it gets too difficult. It's a little unsettling at first, especially in the beginning when agents don't have a lot of action points. But it's there for a reason: without it, there would be little challenge because of the nature of the game: it's a stealth game. Without it, you could take 300 turns to recon all point of interests and patrol routes and the game would get boring fast.

The game challenges you to remain undetected as much as possible, as killing guards raises the alarm level instantly, while neutralizing them is only temporary, after which they will actively search for you.

Sneaking past patrols and using cover is immensely rewarding. I've seen comments about some situations being unwinnable because of the random level generator, but that's simply not true. Every situation has a solution, but you may lack the proper preparation, strategy or equipment to win it. If that's the case, the game actually encourages you to cut your losses and head to the nearest exit. A failed mission is a lot less painful than losing an agent, since the game only has permadeath.

Invisible Inc is a gem that no other game can really compare to. It's in its own league as a stealth-based turn-based strategy game.

In game tells you the rough idea of when the next build will be, which is great for a early access game. I personally love the game, it's fun sneaking around and complaining about mistakes I make that led to me killing everyone on the floor. Of course you shouldn't, since this is a stealth game. Always good to know when you make a mistake later on you can just slay everyone.

Of course the game will be hard at first, but after you get used to it it's enjoyable. Standing right next to a guard as you steal from him and watch him walk away. This game won't get repeatitive compared to other stealth games because it's randomly generated levels. Of course there's that chance you get a level you can't sneak past, but that's why we get guns and stuns. Thus far most levels I have been able to sneak past, I can only recall three levels I had to murder the whole floor to search it. And that's after 60 hours of gameplay.

In conclusion, if you like stealth and rogue, good idea to consider this game, not expensive either. And after that wonderful early access for Don't starve, I do believe we can trust these guys to handle this one as well. This game is pretty much done honestly in my opinion. I've yet to run into any major issues or bugs, and the one time I have few hours later there's a hotfix for it.

Hard as golem balls, but fair. An interesting mix of tactical turn based strategy, exploration, and stealth.

Recomended for fans of Xcom, Fallout 1 through Tactics, Jagged Alliance, and Xenonauts.

Would highly recommend this game if you're a fan of Shadowrun Returns. Unique art style, mood-setting music, turn-based strategy leaning toward stealth, cyperpunk awesomeness. This game is still in Early Access, but the gameplay is both fun and challenging. I hope they add a running story arc, but the hardest part (making a fun game) they've done in spades.

This game is awesome. I like the setting, i like the style ...

And as simple as it may sound, the best moments are when one of your agents gets caught looting a vault in the third or fourth mission and you're already thinking "Damn, that's it!" just to suddenly see a way to sneak your second agent (and a fully charged taser) right behind the alarmed guard ...

Make it run on Linux/SteamOS (or maybe even Android ... ?) and i'm perfectly happy! ;-)

Keep it up, Klei

It's unforgiving and it's still early, but it's quite fun. Only recommended for people who like a bit of challenge. Sometimes you'll be lucky just to get out of a mission alive. I can't wait for more updates.
