There’s a new game on the way with the name Clandestine, which may have an interesting premise for PC owners. Danish developer Logic Artists announced that this game will work on “asymmetrical cooperative play” and release somewhere in 2014.
Sporting a stealth action theme, the game is transported back to the 90s, which it hopes to portray in its 3D environment.
A storyline uses the disbandment of the Soviet Union as a milestone, with espionage operatives being targeted by unknown assailants. Both the Soviet and NATO forces are under attack, which causes strife amidst the freshly made up parties.
Locations will vary from underground tunnels in Vienna to secret NSA stations. Action herein will take place inside of classical buildings or on rooftops.
It’s possible to use cover to elude guards or take them down from the back, by choking them out. Moreover, agents are equipped with a sidearm, as well as explosives.
Gameplay will switch between two characters, namely the operative on the field and a hacker in the background. By manipulating electronics, one will try to alter the environment the other is in, to overcome obstacles.
Clandestine is the second PC title from Logic Artists. A prior project called Expeditions: Conquistador used the strategy role-playing mechanics known from Might and Magic, to illustrate colonist struggles in the jungle. Its turn-based model is quite different from this new, ambitious project.
At least they’re thinking outside the box. That has to be worth something.
Daav has been playing games since Atari was a thing and still likes games that look old, but also new stuff. There's no allegiance to platforms or genres; anything big and small can make a good game. This gives him a ton of perspectives to write about.
