Danish independent studio
Logic Artists emerged from the shadows today to reveal “Clandestine”, a
globetrotting spy thriller set in the mid-1990’s. From the creators of popular
turn based strategy game Expeditions: Conquistador, Clandestine offers stealth
and spy game enthusiasts asymmetrical cooperative play mechanics within a deep
dark story-driven spy fantasy that will debut on PC in 2014.
“After our success with our debut release Expeditions: Conquistador, we wanted
to create a new kind of play experience based on our love for tactical stealth
games”, said Ali Emek, Producer from Logic Artists. “With the addition of
asymmetrical co-op gameplay between the field agent and hacker, Clandestine
gives a unique spin to this genre. Set during the ‘90s, we have worked hard to
recreate the feel and atmosphere of the decade in the game, and we are excited
to see how players react to this iconic time in technological development”.
The year is 1996, five years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a string
of accidents and murders have gone unnoticed by the public, but have put the
world of espionage on high alert. Former Cold War operatives, believing their
cover intact, are being assassinated around the globe. Soviet and NATO spies are
being targeted indiscriminately, causing turmoil and suspicion on all sides.
Featuring asymmetrical cooperative gameplay (hacker and field agent team),
Clandestine transports players to locations around the globe from the
underground tunnels of Vienna to secret NSA bunkers in Washington, where they
must use tactics and stealth to infiltrate corporate headquarters, hideouts and
safe houses to determine who is behind the string of murders and lift the
curtain of conspiracy.
