Description [fr]

Un jeu d'aventures en plusieurs volets, mêlant plusieurs styles de gameplay, par le studio Magrathean Technologies.
Il utilise le moteur NeoAxis (pas de version native Linux).

Ce second opus revient sur le moment où Nick le renifleur est sur le point d'abattre John (le joueur).

Si John choisi d'aider HEIDI, elle l'informe qu'elle se cache dans le sillage d'un trou noir afin d'éviter que plusieurs de ses ennemis ne la détecte. Ceci requiert l'accès à un élément rare, mais lorsque John part à sa recherche sur une planète, il s'aperçoit que toutes les planètes en sont pourvu.
C'est alors qu'il reçoit un message d'un homme dénommé Drequexius.

Dreque lui indique qu'il ne sont peut-être pas du bon côté. Il lui dit qu'HEIDI ne cherche que la guerre.
Dreque lui propose alors une confrontation à bord de son propre vaisseau en lui fournissant les coordonnées nécessaires.
HEIDI répond instantanément avec un point de vue radicalement opposé, ajoutant que Dreque est un menteur, un lâche et un traître.
S'ils veulent connaître la vérité, ils doivent infiltrer la banque de données de l'Alliance du secteur 42 ...

Incognito: Episode 2 est une nouvelle campagne avec un nouveau scénario et de nouveaux personnages.
Plus important, cette campagne se décline en plusieurs scénarios possibles, offrant le choix du type de mission et produisant différentes fins.

Description [en]

At the beginning of Episode Two, we recap up to the point where Nick the Nose is about to shoot John (the player). The turrets quickly dispatch the artificial life from of Nick the Nose. If John decides to help HEIDI, she informs him that she’s hiding in the wake of a black hole to avoid detection from her several enemies. This requires access to a rare element, but when John gets to a planet carrying it, EVERY planet carrying it, he gets an automatic e-mail message from a man called Drequexius.

Dreque proposes to the player (John) that maybe, they are not on the right side. He tells them that HEIDI is a living war; she’s all four horsemen in one. Dreque then offers a face to face conversation aboard his private warship, giving the needed coordinates. HEIDI instantly replies and tells the player the direct opposite and that Dreque is a betrayer, a liar, and a coward. If they want to see the real truth of her history, go to and infiltrate the Sector 42 Alliance Data Record Banks.

So, at this point, John can visit Dreque, try to kill him or join him, go to get the historical data and the SuperTank blueprints, or try to muscle his way passed Dreque’s defenses without the SuperTanks, through sheer numbers or by superior strategy. If John believes HEIDI, he has to go to the Sector 42 Alliance records building; he can either fight his way inside, or sneak in.

• If John agrees to join him, he’ll tell John to pretend to continue helping her, so that he can plant another EMP inside HEIDI, as it is her only true weakness.
• This requires access to a rare element, but when John gets to a planet carrying it, EVERY planet carrying it, he gets an automatic e-mail message from a man called Drequexius.
• The most well-developed political alliance at the time, the Sector 42 Alliance, fought her on the grounds that she was breaking Prime Directive non-interference laws.

John Smith (generic name, you can choose your own) is a man in trouble. He’s lost everything he has in the Stock Market, his house is in danger of being washed away due to erosion. All he has is a life insurance policy. Depressed and despondent, he decides to end it all. Climbing to the top of his office building. A split second before he hits the ground, a wormhole opens up, and he vanishes! John awakens in a strange place. It’s clearly a high-tech world, but he can’t read any of the writing or understand the language he’s hearing. What’s going on; is he dead and in Hell?

Incognito is meant to deliver simplified versions of gameplay from different genres and bring them together into a game that’s epic in scale and requires different genre skills but is easy for the average hardcore gamer to jump into and play from beginning to end.

These genres change at each “zoom level” of the game:

• When you’re on foot, it’s a First-Person Shooter with RPG elements
• When you’re in your ship, it’s a Space Trading/Combat Simulation
• When you’re in low orbit of a planet, it’s a Simple Real-Time Strategy Game
• When you’re in your hovertank, it’s a Tank Combat Game

In order to progess through each Episode, you’ll have to conquer challenges at each level, gathering information on foot, exploring in your ship, landing on uninhabited planets and establishing bases, and on hostile planets, invading a planet’s surface defenses in the hovertank.
