Hey everyone, Rob from Curve here. We’re happy to announce our very first PlayStation 4 title – Stealth Inc: Ultimate Edition – is out on PlayStation Store this week. The Ultimate Edition includes the main Stealth Inc game alongside the DLC expansions, ‘The Lost Clones‘ and ‘The Teleporter Chambers‘. The game will be available for £10.49/€12.99 when PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.
At Curve we’re best known for bringing over the indie games of other developers to the PlayStation platform, but Stealth Inc is our very own creation. Thought up in the mind of our Lead Designer, Jonathan ‘Bidds’ Biddle, the game was originally developed in his lunchtimes while working on other projects.
We originally released Stealth Inc last year for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 and it’s been one of our most popular titles ever since, so it was an obvious choice to bring over to PlayStation 4. With the DLC included, the Ultimate edition includes 120 levels versus the original games 80.
It’s not just about numbers though! A puzzle-platformer, Stealth Inc relies on have really good level design. That means we need to create levels that are fun and challenging, but not so hard you want to stop playing the game. That’s a skill we developed making Stealth Inc, but it’s a skill that really shines on the DLC packs.
The 40 DLC levels in the Ultimate Edition represent some of the most varied and some of the most difficult challenges yet, and explore more of the back story of the facility where Stealth Inc is set. Of course, they also include brand new leaderboards and achievements that will challenge even the few people skilled enough to S-Rank the levels of the original game.
It’s great to be able to join the growing crowd of PlayStation 4 developers. Stealth Inc might have been a PlayStation 3 and PS Vita title, but we’re also very busy working on games like The Swapper to PlayStation 4 this year, as well as continuing to be one of the most active developers for PS Vita.
As always, if you have any questions about Stealth Inc or any of our other upcoming or existing titles, let us know in the comments!
