Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones Launches Today on PS4, PS3, PS Vita

We’re a big fan of stealth games here at Curve Digital. Metal Gear Solid, Thief, Splinter Cell, the Hitman series… all hold places in our hearts.

We’re also big fans of platforming, from classic puzzle platformers like Abe’s Oddysee all the way up to the best of twitch-based action platformers like Super Meat Boy and exploration focused titles like Cave Story.

Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones

You’ll find a little bit of all of those games in Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones, our newest entry into the Stealth Inc. series that started oh-so-very-long-ago as the lunchtime project of our designer Jonathan Biddle. Fusing disparate genres isn’t easy, but our first attempt seemed to go pretty well and feedback from press and players was almost universally positive.

In Stealth Inc. 2 you play a clone trying to escape a sinister testing facility controlled during the night by a more than slightly obsessed Snr. Quality Assurance Manager, Malcom Alderman. In the previous game we put you through a series of ever more complicated test chambers, but in this game you’ve broken into the facility at large. Your mission is to rescue your fellow clones from their test chambers and ultimately escape the facility.

Stealth Inc. 2 is the result of hours spent dissecting everything people loved (and loathed) about the original in order to bring you something that’s maintains all of the humor and instant gratification from the original game, but with more depth and variety, a fuller, more involved story, and a better paced difficulty curve. We’ve had a team working on a Stealth Inc. game here at Curve towers every day for the last 4 years, so it’s truly something close to our hearts.

So what’s new? Well, for a start, Stealth Inc. 2 is a bigger game, in scope as well as length. The original was a series of test chambers — they’re still present, but this time linked by a huge Metroidvania world full of challenges and surprises. The gadgets used by our beloved clone were a huge hit in the original game but existed outside the main parts of the game. In Stealth Inc. 2, gadgets are front and center across 60 new test chambers and many of them have multiple uses. We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure our gadgets are all completely unique, and bring something to each set of levels you use them in. We’re certain you’ll have lots of fun with our outlandish toys.

Of course, if our levels aren’t enough – feel free to design and share your own with our inbuilt level editor. The fun — and pain (for our clone) — is literally endless. We’re excited to see what you come up with — maybe even pay our team back for being so cruel, huh?

Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones is a labor of love from our team here in London. It’s a game we’ve had a blast making — and one we can’t wait to see you playing. It’s available today. Buy the game on one PlayStation platform and you’ll have access to it across any others you own. Cross buy is a brilliant initiative that we continue to support wherever possible.

See you in the chambers!

  • Im not supporting you anymore since you ditched us playstation gamers and released this as a wii u exclusive thinking it was gonna sell.you trying to come back and release it here since this is where you started.not getting my money this time.

  • PainOfSarrow

    Feel free to design and share your own with our inbuilt level editor.. So we can now play other user created content ? thats what the first one was missing is a share content feature. still loved the original.

  • I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to ‘Stealth 2’.

    To say that I loved the first one would be a VAST understatement. (Big. HUGE.)

    I will be impatiently waiting for the Store to update this week and my cats (and others) will have to fend for themselves for however long it takes for me to finish the game. :-)

    THANK YOU!!!

  • Loved the original and will definitely be getting the sequel, though probably not today.

  • Hooked on the first one, having cold sweats since I heard about this one. HAHA! Not really, but I AM looking forward to this, first one kicked butt!

  • Awesome! Loved the first one on Vita and since this is coming out day one on vita you will have my money.

    What’s the price btw?

  • PlayStation TV needs more love… not even a single mention in this post or title.

    Either it isn’t compatible, which would be a shame… or it is compatible and was left out from the blog post.

    So wait. You can’t play other people custom levels like in the 1st game?

    @ Xoombie503: Check yourself before you wreck yourself. The first game was originally released on PC as Stealth Bast*rd, before getting a name change and coming to Playstation. This isn’t where they started. Though I agree, trying to go Wii U exclusive was a bad idea, and I doubt whatever money Nintendo paid them (if any) made it even close to worthwhile.

  • Didn’t know about this game and I was surprised when I saw the trophies listed in a site yesterday.I was looking forward to it but…

    @ 1 Xoombie503 – I didn’t know about this,so thats why I never heard about this game…I’m with you buddy.

  • Can’t wait to play! Love everything by Curve. Thanks for supporting cross buy.

  • I absolutely loved the first game. Happy that I finally get to play the sequel, and that it still landed on Vita. Still #BestOn imo

  • @1 Xoombie503 Ditched Playstation gamers? How about PC gamers? You know the ones that ORIGINALLY supported the game by the better name; Stealth Bastard. Where is Stealth Bastard 2?

    I’m passing also.

  • A game of clones? Hopefully it’s not just a clone of the first game.

  • CommanderClif

    You hurt me Curve. You cut me deep, like an motion activated laser…or a pressure sensitive spiky…crushing…thing when you went exclusive to Wii. BUT what’s in the past is in the past and I’m looking forward to even MORE agony from you now that I can PS4 and Vita this game. I love you…I hate you.

    Curve: don’t listen to Xoombie503 . You guys are awesome for continuing to support Vita. Thomas Was Alone, Titan Attacks and Stealth Inc are my favorite so far. Can’t wait to see what you guys bring to Vita later in 2015.

    It works on PS TV.

  • You know I got the first game and though it looked fine on a console, though I don’t really want to play it on a console. I want it to be on a mobile device. Of course you got it on the vita also, but the thing about console games that are also on a vita, it makes no changes to be playable on a mobile device. Developers these days think that by making it available on the vita is all they have to do. But thing is, I can barely make out anything on a small screen. It’s unplayable for me. Shame that no one seem to care to make games specifically for the vita anymore when it’s a perfectly good device for gaming. It seems to me that some of these developers make games on the big screen and never once picked up the device that they make their games available for. If they did that, they would know that something on the big screen isn’t the same on a smaller one. You aren’t the only developers who don’t give a damn about the vita…so I shouldn’t be picking on you, but it’s also true so I’m not guilty of lying.
