Project I.G.I.: I’m Going In, simply known as Project I.G.I., was created by Innerloop Studios and published by Eidos Interactive in December 2000. Despite receiving mixed and mediocre reviews, the game’s sound design and visuals were acclaimed, in part due to its usage of a proprietary game engine that was previously used in Innerloop’s Joint Strike Fighter. It was followed by I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike in 2003. Previously, the publisher Toadman Interactive announced in 2019 that the prequel I.G.I. Origins would be released in 2023.
Two months ago, Antimatter Games posted a gameplay reveal trailer for I.G.I. Origins. After receiving an immense amount of traction and positive response, the developer has decided to show their appreciation to fans by sharing more glimpses of the world of I.G.I.
