UNDETECTED - classic stealth action sneaking its way to PC and consoles

Demo available from today on Steam, full game steps out of the shadows later this year on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

Indie publisher Digerati is happy to announce it's bringing UNDETECTED, a top-down stealth action game with a classic feel, to PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S later this year (Q4 2022).

A demo will be available from today as part of the Steam Next Fest, and can be downloaded from the game's Steam page

Created by Mexican developer Merlino Games, UNDETECTED is the studio's second stealth-focused project, following its 2021 debut, The Chameleon. UNDETECTED offers classic, top-down stealth action against the backdrop of corporate conspiracy in a turbulent near-future divided by social and political unrest.

Players take the role of Tenoch Kaan, an expert in non-lethal infiltration and agent for the revolutionary group, Los Desplazados. Players must use stealth tactics to sneak past guards and avoid detection. Kaan's cybernetic eye enhancement allows players to survey their surroundings, while a selection of non-lethal bullet types and explosives can be used to help Kaan stay one step ahead of the enemy.

Retro textures and models give an authentic, old-school visual style to complement the classic gameplay, while a dynamic 'sneak camera' perspective ensures moments of wall-hugging sneakery feel extra tense and dramatic.

About the game
Yucatan, Mexico - June 07, 2063. A cell of the revolutionary group ‘Los Desplazados’, including their leader Gloria, has gone missing while on operations around the site of the Chicxulub Perpetual Energy Station.

Tenoch Kaan, a Desplazados rebel and reformed agent of the shadowy CIMACORP group, is deployed to find Gloria and her team. Fitted with the latest in biotechnological enhancements, Kaan’s mission is to find the missing Desplazados without alerting CIMACORP to his presence.

UNDETECTED is a top-down stealth game with a non-lethal-only approach.

Key Features

  • Stay hidden: Avoid detection by hiding in the shadows and staying out of sight. Turn off lights and create dark areas to sneak through. Be careful not to leave footprints.

  • Use sound wisely: Every footstep, surface, weapon and item can make a noise that will attract enemy attention. Stay as silent as possible, or use sound tactically to gain an advantage.

  • Scout mode: Slow the action and assess the lay out of an area with an augmented top-down view of your surroundings. Observe enemy positions and plan your next move.

  • Non-lethal action: Deadly force is not permitted. Instead, use stealth to avoid enemies, or melee attacks and an array of weapons to incapacitate and immobilize them.

  • Tactical tools: Use a variety of non-lethal bullets and explosives. Includes rubber bullets that can be fired at light switches, and a slime explosive used to mute the sound of footsteps.

  • Rescue captives: Find Desplazados members captured by CIMACORP to increase your max health, max batteries (used for armor and to restore health), and to gain key cards (used to access more areas).

  • Difficulty modes: Choose from four scaling levels of challenge. From a forgiving and relaxed stealth experience, all the way to ‘Mexican Extreme’, which wipes your save if an alert is triggered!
