About this project

 "Congratulations Agent,

Due to your exemplary work in the field, you're being promoted to Chief Officer of the Kazitaire City Safe House. The communist plague has infected this nation, and it will be up to you to liberate it with the swift kick from the boot of American freedom. It's time to get to work.""

 

Safe House is an independent strategy/simulation game coming to PC in the fall of 2017.

One part tycoon game, one part puzzler, and another part espionage simulator, Safe House is if "Papers, Please", "Sim Tower", and "James Bond" had a baby.

  • Deep simulation of running, constructing, and managing a top secret spy headquarters.
  • Variety of rooms and activities, from decoding intercepted messages to providing medical support to wounded agents.
  • Story-based campaign that pits the player in the midst of a shadowy spy war.
  • Test your skills at building, upgrading, and running a successful safe house, providing support to spies, agents, and saboteurs.  

 The best way to understand the game is by breaking down it's core loop:

  • You perform daily activities, such as decoding messages, interrogating enemies, aiding wounded spies.
  • Performing the activities earns you cash and agent XP.
  • Use this cash and XP to upgrade your Safe House further (unlocking new activities for greater cash yields) and levelling up your agents.
  • With your newly upgraded agents, you can send them out into the field, completing story missions and activities.

Rinse and repeat!

Help us out on Greenlight!

 

Even if you don't want to back the campaign at this time, you can show your support by backing us on Steam Greenlight!

As the administrator of the safe house, you are tasked with expanding, building, and upgrading your spy headquarters.

Occupying a dilapidated building out of the fictional African nation of Kazitaire, the CIA has set up a clandestine safe house for spies, soldiers and saboteurs. 

Construct various rooms to generate income, provide support, or train agents. Throughout the campaign, you will encounter missions and events that will require the support of your safe house. Construct it and manage it in order to help win the war!

ROOMS

Some of the rooms the player can construct include:

 

 

 

 Not only must you construct the safe house, but you must also run its day-to-day operations. Perform the safe house's daily tasks to generate income and further the cause. Accept spies looking for shelter, receive supply drops, decode secret messages. Success will result in further success towards your mission, while failure may cost you your life...

 

 

 Complete Safe House's rich main story by training and managing spies, soldiers, and saboteurs. Send them on missions and train them to be efficient masters of spycraft. But be warned, your decisions will have long lasting consequences, not just on your agents, but on the very political landscape in which you operate.

 Assign your spies and soldiers to a variety of missions and assignments. Be sure to pair each unit's unique skills to match the appropriate mission in order to achieve optimal results.

 

 

 

 

 We've got three special stretch goals planed, allowing the project to scale based on the funding. Help unlock them all!

 Labs Games is a one man studio located out of Canada! Working under the pseudonym of "LABS", this developer is an anonymous industry member who creates fun, experimental titles like Safe House single-handenly.   

As you can imagine, developing a game is a long, intense process, which is why I've come to Kickstarter for extra aid. This game will get created no matter what, but the support of backers will ensure the highest quality and efficiency of the developmental process. 

Funds will go 100% to various developmental costs, such as overhead, licenses, and any products (art, audio) needed for the game.

Risks and challenges

Visibility Risks

While development is tricky and difficult, LABS Games has experience in shipping indie titles. What is truly the most difficult task is gaining visibility and awareness in such a saturated market of other titles.

Contents Subject to Change

As with any game in development, the contents and features are subject to change. While Safe House's core design and systems are already built and well underway, there is always the risk that the final product may vary differently from original builds.
