Curve Studios is very happy to announce that Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, will be available on the PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One and PC in early April.
Stealth Inc 2 is the sequel to Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, also fondly known as ‘Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole’ on PC. The series is known for its challenging platforming, clever puzzles, dark sense of humour and wonderful puns. Stealth Inc and Stealth Inc 2 were both created in-house by the indie publisher.
The sequel expands on the action-platforming gameplay of the original in every possible way, introducing a metroidvania style overworld, hidden secrets, customisable clones with a wide range of silly hats and brand new gadgets and equipment to play with.
In addition, the developer has kept everything about the original that players love: robots, lasers, gratuitous blood splatters, sarcastic messages and of course, plenty of challenging test chambers each with their own ranking system and leaderboards.
Curve Managing Director, Jason Perkins, commented: “The best thing about making a sequel is the opportunity to look at the all the reviews and comments about the original game and ask ‘What can we do better this time around?’. With Stealth Inc 2, we’ve not only made a much larger game, we’ve spent a lot of time adding depth to the experience and balancing the difficulty and pacing of the game.”
Stealth Inc 2 was originally released in October on the Nintendo Wii U. To date, the Stealth Inc series has been downloaded over a million times across all major formats.
About the game
Hiding in the shadows has never been so much fun! Stealth Inc 2 is a stealth-focused puzzle platform game from the makers of Fluidity and Hydroventure, designed to test both your brain-box and your reflexes as you explore a high-tech and sinister cloning facility in search of fellow clones to rescue. Stealth Inc 2 rewards exploration and experimentation, with death – and rebirth – never more than a few moments away. There’s no loading screens and no lives to worry about, and no complicated mechanics – if you can be seen, you’re probably already dead.
- Break free from linear levels of the original game with a fully explorable ‘Metroidvania’ style overworld, laying siege to a diabolical cloning facility with varied and detailed environments.
- Use a variety of special equipment to unlock new areas and find new ways to complete old puzzles.
- Beautiful HD graphics running at a full 60-frames-per-second combine with pitch-perfect controls to provide a smooth but challenging platforming experience.
- Explore the game with a friend in a full co-op mode, where one player controls the clone and another uses a variety of tools and skills on the Wii U GamePad to keep the player protected and hidden.
