Video: Designing procedural stealth for Invisible, Inc.

Klei designer James Lantz showcases how to tackle new mechanics and breaks down the design of Invisible, Inc.'s procedural stealth, from its conception to its conclusion.

Developing genuinely novel game mechanics means you often end up navigating more problems than you'd ever anticipated.

During the GDC 2015 Independent Games Summit, Klei designer James Lantz showcased how you might overcome those challenges while discussing the design of Invisible, Inc.'s procedural stealth, from its conception to its conclusion.

His talk covers how Klei approaches new mechanics, and presents examples of how you can fall into every single hidden pitfall, climb your way out, and come out on the other side with something fun.

It's a warm, insightful talk that's indie-focused but broadly applicable to all developers, no matter what you're working on. If you missed it, the video recording is now available to watch for free right here on the GDC Vault.
