At first glance, Hot Lava seems little more than YouTube reaction fodder, a tricky platformer with plenty of things to make entertainers mug and scream for their audience. But playing reveals a movement-based game as fun as Mirror’s Edge or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. It’s silly. but the thrill of completing a level…
Chances are you’ve already played Hot Lava, the first 3D game from Klei Entertainment of Don’t Starve and Invisible, Inc. fame. It’s the video game version of the perennial children’s imagination game with only one rule: don’t touch the floor.
Invisible, Inc. is a game that is all about secrecy and hacking. Fitting, then, that one of its achievements can only be nabbed if players mess around with the game’s files.
Let’s get straight to it: for some of you, Invisible, Inc. will be close to the perfect video game.
Turn-based games are supposed to be about time. Patience. Giving the player the luxury - and comfort - of taking as long as they want to make sure they get their moves just right. Invisible Inc is a turn-based game, but it takes that decades-old assumption and just throws it out the window.

Remember Incognita? (I do!) It's no longer known by that name. Klei Entertainment has renamed it Invisible, Inc., saying that title resonated more with focus groups.
Klei made 2012's best stealth game in Mark of the Ninja, so the fact their next game Incognita is also about sneaking - only this time with the squad mechanics of a game like XCOM - is exciting.
Klei Entertainment hasn't argued the comparison. To the contrary, they were the first to make it, saying their upcoming game, Incognita, is in effect espionage done in the mode of XCOM. But you find out how quickly the game is not like XCOM when you unholster your weapon.

Most people might take their stealth tips from Solid Snake or Sam Fisher. Me, I'm more in tune with, uh, the Kool-Aid man. Seriously.
