Version 1.3 Released

The Concealed Intent 1.3 release is out now! It is a few months late, but finally here.

Tell me about the 1.3 Update

The main change in this release is the most requested feature from the discussion boards: it is now possible to rewatch old online games and to always see the last turn of an online game.

If an online game finishes while you are not actively playing, then it will still be in your list of online games when you next start Concealed Intent. If selected it will display the end screen with the game's outcome. If you want to see the last turn just click the "Replay Last" button and it will be displayed. On the second time you start Concealed Intent after the game has finished it will be moved to the Old Games list - but you can still rewatch the whole game, read on!

At the end of an online game there is now a "Rewatch" button. Click this and the entire game will be loaded and you can watch it from the start either continuously (with the "Play All" button on the turn control part of the GUI) or turn-by-turn ("Play Turn" button").

It is also possible to rewatch any of your online games that have finished in the last 90 days. Just go to the Old Games screen (available via the Online screen) and click the "Rewatch" link next to the game you wish to rewatch.

I had hoped to add rewatch to campaign and skirmish scenarios as well, but that caused problems. 90% would play just fine, but some would badly break due to the scripting system used to play out the turns. Fixing it for all scenarios would require rewriting the scripting system and that would take too long - so sadly you can only rewatch online games (which do not have any complex scripting in them).

There are a few other minor changes and bugfixes - the details are below.

What is next?

If there is a bad bug I will work to fix it. I can't imagine not doing that. Otherwise there are no plans to add more features.

About This Game

Concealed Intent is a simultaneous turn-based game of tactical space combat. Players control their ships in a fully 3D world - hunting down their enemies, just as they are being hunted themselves. In Concealed Intent you know your enemies are out there, but not exactly where, or even what they are.

To defeat your enemies you need to devise a range of strategies to gain enough information to successfully shoot at them. All the while they are trying to do the same to you.



Space is big and empty. Finding something can be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but there is nowhere for the needle to hide. To stay concealed a ship needs to fade into the background as much as possible. Everything a ship does will signal its presence and increase the ability of those nearby to detect it. A big ship may blot out stars as it passes. Heat from engines can be detected against the cold of the void. Lasers can be traced back to their origin. Eventually as detection increases, a firing solution can be calculated so that a beam of coherent light a few millimeters in diameter can cross thousands of kilometers to strike an evasive enemy - hidden no longer!

Key Features

  • Turn-based - play at your own pace
  • Single player campaign
  • Instant procedural PvE skirmishes, with various objectives:
    • Duel - Head to head duel, only one team can survive!
    • Bases - Destroy the enemy base for victory.
    • Waves - Endless waves of enemies assaulting your base, how long can you hold them off?
    • Savior - A number of civilian shuttles are trying to reach a base while under attack, can you identify friend or foe quickly enough to save them all?
  • Challenge your friends to online PvP duels & play at your own pace - over minutes, days or weeks.
  • Numerous playable ship types with configurable offensive and defensive ship components
  • Rewatch turns
  • User editable colors - colour-blind friendly
  • Non-cheating AI - all the AI enemies have no more information than the Player would have in the same situation, and the same equipment
  • Further skirmish options - set the number of player and enemy ships, apply modifiers (like "Harder AI" or "Loot Drops"), or even change the loadout of your opponent.
