Think fast and lie faster! When you go undercover to retrieve a deadly new bio-weapon, can you pull off the mission and escape with your life?
Undercover Agent is an interactive novel by Naomi Laeuchli. It's entirely text-based--135,000 words, without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
You are the top operative at the DTU (Domestic Terrorist Unit), a covert agency that specializes in investigating terrorist groups on US soil. As Silas Bishop's administrative assistant, you are in a prime position to spy on his business and search for the deadly weapon his scientists have engineered. But word has leaked there’s a mole, and you’re running out of time.
Can you depend on your computer hacking skills to get you out of a tight spot or will you count on your brawn? Would you rather sneak where you shouldn’t be found or bluff your way in with pure charisma and charm? And what about those friends you’ve made while undercover? Can they be trusted, or would you rather just use them? Cover your tracks, delay the mole hunt, and plot your escape.
• Rescue your best friend or leave him to his fate
• Avoid detection or kill those who suspect you
• Find love with your handler or even your enemy’s son
• Frame your coworkers or protect them
• Plant bugs, hack computers, crawl through vents, and use your charms
• Bribe, torture, or threaten information from targets
• Go on the run or earn a promotion
• Expose the mole in your own agency or join forces
• Retrieve the weapon, destroy it, or sell it

Ratings and Reviews
Had a lot of promise
The game was interesting, but unfortunately felt like it had been pressed for time, the plot accelerated so quickly, and there were a lot of things that happened in the story that were just on the verge of being incredibly interesting but fell a little short, and the ending was abrupt and characters/storylines seemed like they had been dropped completely. Specifically, any romance was just not mentioned, and if you *spoiler alert* tried to deal with the biological weapon instead of rescuing the person who
Was kidnapped, even if you romanced that person, their fate was never addressed. And even if you were just PRETENDING to work with Silas in the end you just let him go? And I’m not sure if this was an error, but I showed the director evidence of the real betrayal, and it said it was enough to clear my friend’s name and remove this other person from power, but on the next page that person was promoted and my friend had to stay in hiding.
To be clear, it wasn’t a bad game at all! But it could have been great.
Short, shallow, and unrealistic
The relationships in this game aren’t given any time to be developed. It feels very choppy and unrealistic. For example, you have a coworker who tells you - in your first interaction with him - that he’s embezzled half a million dollars from the company. (I’m not giving much away here, it happens early in the game.). He asks you to do him a favor and keep quiet about it to protect him, and to tell lies which could implicate you. To convince you, he shows you a picture of a kid (which you’ve never seen or heard of before), and claims he’s sick and needed medical treatment. The game is unclear on whether you have any background with the character, but you’ve only started working there recently, so you probably don’t. Can you imagine if a coworker you barely know embezzled and asked you to cover for them??? If you say no, he’s really chilly to you as though he had actually asked something reasonable of another person.
The whole game has people acting in irrational ways. You can get away with things which would be immediately caught in the real world.
The game is also shorter than most CoG.
I gave the game 2 stars instead of 1 because I did really like the concept behind the game. The author thought of great plot elements (your relationships with your team and your undercover life) and the stats/background personalization were appropriate and worked with the game.
A lot of fun and cool story
I pretty much have played all the COG’s
This one was the perfect blend of reading and choices. The repeat value was also pretty good
Wish it was a little longer, but it was decent length and well written.
