Concealed Intent is a turn-based game of tactical space combat. Players control their ships in a completely 3D world - hunting down their enemies, just as they are being hunted themselves! In Concealed Intent you know your enemies are out there, but not exactly where, or even what they are. The fun comes from out-thinking your opponent rather than any test of reaction speed.

Out now on Steam and Humble.

The core gameplay mechanic is stealth. But how can you be stealthy in space? Well, space is big and empty. Finding something can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. On the other hand, there is nowhere for the needle to hide - to stay concealed it needs to fade into the background as much as possible. Nearly anything a ship does will signal its presence and increase the ability of those around to detect it. A big ship may blot out stars as it passes. Heat from engines can be detected against the cold of the void. Lasers can be traced back to their origin. Eventually as detection increases, a firing solution can be calculated so that a beam of coherent light a few millimetres in diameter can cross thousands of kilometres to strike an evasive enemy - hidden no longer!

To defeat your enemies you need to devise a range of strategies to gain enough information to successfully shoot at them. All the while they are trying to do the same to you. Various equipment is available to help both sides, including sensors, countermeasures and drones. There will be a single-player campaign, instant procedural skirmishes and online multiplayer.

Concealed Intent, the turn-based tactical 3D spaceship combat game, now has its 1.1 release available. Arriving 2 months after the initial release, this update improves the game with Linux support, various cosmetic and gameplay improvements, bug fixes, and extra content. To celebrate, the game is currently 40% off at both the Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/374150/) and Humble (https://www.humblebundle.com/store/concealed-intent?partner=dbolical) stores until Monday 24th October.

The 1.1 update includes:

  • Linux support
  • Async Steam turn notifications for online duels
  • A new "Gather" player-vs-compute skirmish objective - quickly identify friend from foe and collect the supply pods
  • Two new skirmish modifiers:
    • Neutral unknowns - ships are marked as neutral until properly identified, thus you are not sure whether that contact is a stealthy enemy or newly arrived ally
    • Tentative contacts - sensors may incorrectly identify new phantom contacts, is that a new enemy or just a shadow? Further investigation is required!
  • Better balance in online duels
  • Cosmetic improvements including a graphical display for shielding components
  • Many bugfixes

The Game:
Concealed Intent is a simultaneous turn-based game of tactical stealth space combat, strongly influenced by games such as Homeworld and Frozen Synapse. Players control their ships in a fully 3D world - hunting down their enemies, just as they are being hunted themselves. In Concealed Intent you know your enemies are out there, but not exactly where, or even what they are. Concealed Intent includes a single-player campaign, an instant skirmish generator and multiplayer options.

The press kit is available at: Jarrahtechnology.com

Please contact me (Charles, the dev) for further details, requests for review copies or interview/Q&As.
