Investigate and Destroy is a turn-based action game playable in solo and cooperative modes. What is turn-based action, you ask? As in a traditional turn-based strategy game, opposing teams take turns moving and attacking with their characters. But instead of just instructing units to move and fire (or investigate), you take direct control of them yourself like you do in an action game.

In Investigate and Destroy, you will step into the shoes of three brilliant super-scientists as you research and develop strange new weapons and gadgets to destroy the supernatural hordes that have crushed humanity. With the elimination of humanity, the supernatural beings created peace in their time, but all that is about to change. Those poor devils don’t stand a chance against the power of science!

You’ll gain new insights into the science of creepiness as you perform vivisections on the battlefield in your search for the source of the supernatural horde. Along the way, you will visit many spooky castles, deadly deserts, and vile towns filled with ghosts, zombies, vampires, trolls, and who knows what else. Your trusty(?) RadVan will keep you on the right(?) path of destruction, when he’s not preoccupied with one of his many hobbies, that is.

The campaign game is all about liberating creepy fortresses from the clutches of these supernatural slime bags, gradually regaining control of the world. Your strategic choices here will send you on action-packed tactical missions, making each match unique. Earn and collect $science on missions, then spend it on universities, defenses, and more. Customize your play style by researching and developing radical upgrades for each strange weapon and fascinating gadget.

Investigate and Destroy was created with the cooperative at its core. After completing a few introductory missions, you can play the game cooperatively in many different ways: in couch co-op or online with any other player in the Xbox ecosystem (even in the cloud). Any part of the game can be played solo or cooperatively, and players can drop in and out of a friend’s open game at any point in the campaign. Having trouble with a particular mission? Ask a friend to join you for a few minutes and take down some ghosts. Just be very careful where you point your laser when there’s an extra team of scientists on the battlefield – those things can hurt!

We’re a micro-studio releasing our first original game, so you can imagine how excited we are to bring it to Xbox. We’ve had a lot of fun developing a game that has something to say but isn’t too serious about how it says it. We hope you’ll join in the fun!
