Hey everyone, Rob from Curve here. We’re happy to announce our very first PlayStation 4 title – Stealth Inc: Ultimate Edition – is out in stores this week. The Ultimate Edition includes the main Stealth Inc game alongside the DLC expansions, “The Lost Clones” and “The Teleporter Chambers.” The game is available for $14.99.
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 a the obvious choice to bring over to PlayStation 4. With the DLC included, the Ultimate Edition includes 120 levels versus the original game’s 80.
It’s not just about numbers though! A puzzle-platformer, Stealth Inc relies on 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 in the DLC packs.
The 40 DLC levels in the Ultimate Edition represent some of the most varied and 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 leader boards 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 Vita title, but we’re also very busy working on games like The Swapper to bring to PlayStation 4 this year, as well as continuing to be one of the most active developers for the PlayStation Vita.
As always, if you have any questions about Stealth Inc or any other of our upcoming or existing titles, let us know in the comments!
