Invisible, Inc. is one of those games I've been meaning to play ever since it came out. Everyone I know who's played it through is a committed enthusiast (hello Oli Welsh) and yet I never got round to booting it up.
Thank goodness for Chris Bratt, then (there's a sentence I never thought I'd write), for sitting me down and finally getting me to see what all the fuss is about. Turns out everybody was right - Invisible, Inc. is a terrific turn based strategy game, even if it's the kind of game that seems specifically tailored to make me nervous.
In this week's Late to the Party, then, expect a lot of hacking, a lot of sneaking and a brief discussion of whether Chris could pull off a spy coat like Decker's.
Chris told me off camera that Invisible, Inc. was very nearly called Incognita, after the helpful A.I. I think I speak for all of us when I say I am very, very glad that didn't happen.
