At a Glance: Klei Entertainment

Klei Entertainment was built because they want to build games that they care about.
When talented, creative people can work toward that goal, amazing things happen. They can create anendearing off-the-wall puzzle game. They can redefine what an oldschool beat-em-up is. They can create products that live up to your childhood memories of your coolest games.

Klei is located in Vancouver, British Columbia and has developed and published games for a bunch of different platforms.

Invisible Inc. is a turn-based tactical espionage game where you control a group of elite spies to break into the world's most secure complexes. If you're a fan of XCOM and FTL, then this is likely a game for you. The world is procedurally generated, your agents perma-die, and information is both scarce and important.

Invisible, Inc. is in PC public beta currently and will continue to be developed with regular updates, similar to how Klei created (and updated) Don't Starve. They have plans for other platforms, but are focusing on the PC during the beta.


Play on: Beta is PC

Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic.

You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.

The Reign of Giants DLC adds new content throughout the entire upper world of Don't Starve including new seasons, creatures, characters, items, craftables, and biomes, providing new challenges to overcome and new ways to adapt and survive in the uncompromising world.

Play on: Buy Don't Starve for All Platforms!

It’s official! Don't Starve: Reign of Giants Expansion is launching on PS4 on July 22 in North America and July, 23 in Europe! It will be available for $4.99 on PSN, and PS+ members will get a 10% launch discount!


Mini Q&A
Answers by Jamie Cheng, Founder

Why do you make games?
Games are a young medium with a ridiculous amount of territory left to explore. It tickles both sides of my brain, and I think that intersection of tech and art is fascinating. 

Why should people play Don't Starve and Invisible, Inc.?
Why indeed! As a whole we push pretty hard on breaking genre boundaries in our games. 

In Invisible, Inc., we created a procedurally-generated turn-based stealth game. It's probably the only game where you can feel like you're controlling an elite team of spies, taking on missions, planning your moves and executing them like a pro. 

Don't Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game. If that premise sounds great to you, then it's totally your kind of game. It has a ridiculous number of ways to die, too.

What element of game design do you hold above all others?
While making a game, we often ask a question "is this game worth making?" That is, is this game intrinsically worth something to players, or is it just leading the player from one extrinsic reward to the next?

We ultimately strive to build games that are interesting in and of themselves, and to create an experience that enriches the player, usually by creating an experience they've never had before.

I've wanted Don't Starve for a while now, just haven't picked it up yet. Hope I get lucky!!
randomass171  +   574d ago
You and me both! I see it everywhere, think about trying it but never actually do it. Fingers crossed for us both, eh? :P
Emilio_Estevez  +   574d ago
It's pretty addicting, get on PC if capable.

Own it 2x and do not regret.

Klei is by far my favourite indie working these days. I suck at Don't Starve, but it's an absolute gem. My Mum is better than me at Don't Starve, but she still hasn't survived a winter, let alone some of the extra challenges. There is a TON of content in that game if you look hard enough.

One awesome game not even mentioned here is Mark of the Ninja. It's absolutely fantastic. It reminded me of playing Metal Gear Solid back in the day, but it really is a different game. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Every thing they do is vastly different, and I cannot wait to see their take on the turn-based genre.

Turn-based strategy games are my favorite genre of games, really looking forward to this.
Dazjazz  +   575d ago
I definitely want to get don't starve. Love the art style and the gamplay seems interesting. Just always worried games like it are gonna be free on PS plus sooner rather than later :/
Either way these guys are great devs!
uth11  +   574d ago
it's already been free on PSN. I'm not sure if they do repeats.
dictionary  +   575d ago
Mmm... duly noted!
Monster_Tard  +   575d ago
Looks like it will be another great indie game.
XtraTrstrL  +   575d ago
These guys are really into the procedurally generated stuff, I love it. Replay value goes through the roof with games like Don't Starve because of it. I'm just wondering, is PS4 gonna get that free multiplayer expansion that is going to PC?
W4rT  +   575d ago
I wish i had this game
MightyNoX  +   574d ago
Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.

That's news to me, I always assumed you were meant to die in Don't Starve no matter what you do...

Reign of Giants on PS4 is official, hell yes!
Ma1nframe  +   574d ago
Don't starve is super fun and addicting on PS4. Never heard of it until I got it for free with PS+ and sunk a good coupled hundred hours into it. Highly Recommended.

Derekvinyard13  +   574d ago
Don't starve is pretty hard at first, it shows no mercy
ailailou  +   574d ago
My admiration for Klei Entertainment is beyond Godlike, and this because of Don't Starve, one of the games which managed to make me stay in front of a computer display for hours and hours just like I did during my teenhood.
