Invisible, Inc. can be played in Custom mode, which gives options to change some of the game's rules and balance. Custom mode can be used to make the game easier, more difficult as a challenge, or otherwise just a different experience. These options are available on the campaign generation screen by selecting Custom mode explicitly, or using the “show settings” checkbox.
When any of the game's settings are changed this way, the game is in Custom mode, and the word “Custom” appears in the top-right corner of the screen within missions where otherwise the game difficulty would appear. In Custom mode, achievements for specific game difficulties cannot be unlocked, although in-game unlockable content still can be. Changing the number of rewinds or toggling level retries does not cause the game to be in Custom mode; playing with mods also does not cause the game to be in Custom mode, though changing any of the mods' settings typically does.
See Comparison of Game Difficulty Modes for the default values of these options.
