Concealed Intent, a turn-based tactical spaceship combat game, is now available for PC/Mac through Steam with a 34% launch discount. Steam keys are also now available for the first time at the Humble Store.
After 9 months in Steam's Early Access program, and incorporating player feedback on which parts of the game are most important (apparently procedural skirmish), it is time for Concealed Intent to graduate to a full release. This is the first game created by solo-dev, Charles Cordingley, based in Malaysia, taking nearly 4 years from concept to completion. Charles has written about his indiedev experience at Jarrahtechnology.com
Concealed Intent launches with a weeklong 34% discount until August 9th, taking the price to US$9.90 (down from the normal US$14.99 or local equivalent).
Work will now soon start on version 1.1 adding new features and platforms, along with general GUI and gameplay improvements.

The new skirmish modes added on request from Early Access feedback:
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.
