Klei Entertainment, developers of Mark of the Ninja, have announced their next gameIncognita. While Klei themselves haven’t announced further details, IGN reports that Incognita is a “turn-based tactical espionage” game.


Incognita is heavily inspired by XCOM, which is a game that designer Jason Dreger “adores”. The focus of the game is breaking into and stealing from heavily-guarded and secure locales.


Says studio co-founder Jamie Cheng, “In the majority of turn-based games, positioning is your number one priority… From our standpoint, we wanted to make a game where information is one of the key things that you want.”


Incognita is in development for PC, with Mac and Linux versions to follow.

    If it’s anywhere NEAR as good as Mark of the Ninja, this will be amazing. Totally looking forward to it! They have a great grasp on stealth games with Mark of the Ninja, better than anyone else in the field I’d say.

    Man, what is up with this resurgence of tactical strategy games? Not saying it’s a bad thing (I love turn-based RPGs), I’m just finding it amusing.

    But devs like Double Fine and Klei Entertainment haven’t made anything bad, so I’m kinda hyped for this while knowing nothing about it.
