Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is a bit unpolished, but very playable! There'll be more levels and gadgets in Early Access. We want to release the game on Virtual Reality platforms as well, so we will stay in Early Access until the VR edition is ready. The VR edition will be free of charge for PC version owners.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that The Spy Who Shrunk Me will come out of Early Access in early 2019 - after a bunch of gadget / mission updates and the VR version.”

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

“We want to add more crazy gadgets to the game and are working on new levels as well for the game - do note that even in EA the game is playable from start to finish!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Spy Who Shrunk Me is playable from start to finish, we're just missing a few neat features like localization, proper polish, probably that one options menu setting you want and the entire VR version of the game. If you want to jump in, we've got a great fully voice-acted story with stealth action ready for you from the get-go! Jump in later, we'll have more levels to play and more gadgets to use.”

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

“Depending on how much content we manage to cram into The Spy Who Shrunk Me, the price might rise up. It'll probably be by the time we go for the VR version of the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want your ideas for gadgets and levels. We want to fine-tune the difficulty and challenge of the game. Most importantly, we want to know what you want us to add to it. Please leave your suggestions at the Steam Community forums where we will respond to it.”

We have updated The Spy Who Shrunk Me to version 0.12.0 with the new "Get Comfy" Update!

You can now visit Audrey Smoothspy's British bungalow home equipped with extremely comfortable furniture and a hidden spybase behind a bookcase!

All your collectibles will be automatically added to the bungalow, so get cracking on finding them!

You can access the bungalow through the "Missions" menu.

We'll keep this area updated with new collectibles, music and more in the updates to come. There's going to be more vinyls to play with and some trophies for the most hardcore of players.

Can you find all ten? We've hidden an amazing assortment of trinkets across all the missions in the game. There's two new achievements for finding one or all the collectibles. Some are in pretty hard spots, so get your thinking caps on.

Here's the full patch notes for your enjoyment.

- Added new hub area, Audrey's spybase and bungalow!
- Added 10 collectibles and some story-based additions (based on your choices)
- Optimized music files to help with loading times
- Two new achievements
- Minor bug fixes and performance improvements

We burned the "Beyond the Books" mission beyond recognition due to a last minute lightmap change - the mission is playable but some walls might look a bit funky. We'll fix it in the new update.

Next up on the roadmap is the VR edition of the game coming March, new obstacles and an all-new mission coming in April to wrap up our Early Access! We would like to thank you for sticking with us for the ride.

Get comfy,
Tomi Toikka

About This Game


THE SPY WHO SHRUNK ME is a stealth game where you are a superspy armed with a shrink ray! It's 1981. Sneak onto a train inbound to Moscow and infiltrate a software company that harbors grave secrets bound to turn the Cold War into a very hot one. Armed with banana peels, airbag mines and the capability to shrink enemies and drop them in toilets and paper shredders, you are the only one standing between the dreaded General Bolscotchkovich and his Soviet army.


  • 🕵 Be agent AUDREY SMOOTHSPY, the only agent aloof enough to fight the Soviet army all by herself. Armed with a stolen Soviet shrink ray, an assorted inventory of spy gadgets and some banana peels, you're the only one affordable enough for the job of saving the free world!
  • 👢 Keep the cold war communist regime under your heels (literally) by (also literally) flushing their cronies down the toilet! Manipulate your enemies size using your trusty shrink ray. And when the going gets tough, zip past enemies as a tiny shrunk spy.
  • 👒 This mission takes you all the way to MOSCOW to find out what a sinister software company office complex is actually hiding within! Sneak aboard a train, defuse a nuke and kidnap a scientist into a purse! Don't get caught or risk getting stomped on!
  • 🎶 A fully voice-acted narrative adventure with multiple endings and music that makes you want to jam Soviets down paper shredders!
  • 🔮 Play your way! Challenge yourself by completing the adventure without killing anyone or without getting detected.
