Programs

Incognita can use programs to assist the agency in various ways. Programs are roughly categorised as PWR generators, firewall breakers, and utility programs.

You begin the game with a choice of one generator and one breaker. Additional programs can be acquired from Server Terminals and Research Databanks. One program, Turing, is acquired only in the OMNI Mainframe mission.

Incognita has slots for up to 5 programs, or up to 6 programs after the OMNI Foundry Lab mission in the extended campaign.

Generators

A generator is a program which generates PWR. Generators are either passive, meaning they generate PWR automatically without the player's intervention, or active, meaning they only generate PWR when the program is used.
