Game Overview

S.P.Y. tells the story of the dedicated men and women that form the international Intelligence and Counter-Espionage organization or I.C.E.

I.C.E. protects the world from all foreign and domestic threats by the villainous terrorist organization, S.CORP.I.A.N (Sabotage, Corruption, Intelligence, Assassination and Nuclear power).

Set in the Swingin’ Sixties, six undercover agents have recently had their covers blown and have been killed off. The top agents of I.C.E. are sent to rescue a deep cover agent before they’re killed while the remaining agents work to uncover the mole within the agency.

I.C.E. Origins

I.C.E. was created by the British government in December of 1953 before the height of the Cold War took root in the 1960's. It was originally meant to be an international, inter-agency network of operatives sharing intelligence to stop global threats.

However no other countries were interested and the project was nearly shelved. General Caldecott Trappe fought to continue the program and used what connections he had to help persuade various countries to agree and join.

Four years later in 1957 and the United States came on board first and offered the program its base of operations within its borders. Second was Canada, followed by France, then West Germany, Greece, Spain, Belgium and Israel among others, with Russia a tenuous participant at the best of times.

Now six years later and I.C.E. is a full fledged and recognized organization with countless I.C.E. agents working around the globe to protect all foreign and domestic interests all over the world.

The Rise of S.CORP.I.A.N 

S.CORP.I.A.N's history is more than a little muddled. Most believe and agree that it was formed out of communist Russia in 1952 by a special agent that went rogue known only as The Face.

It is generally believed that S.CORP.I.A.N's ultimate goal is world wide domination. They are not above murder, torture and terrorism to further their goals and they actively seek anything they believe can help them reach those goals. S.CORP.I.A.N has high interest in new technology and science breakthroughs and therefore, scientists and tech experts are at constant risk of kidnapping.

Many high ranking officials believe that somehow, through some means The Face is pulling the strings but The Face himself is a mystery, one that seems no one can solve. Russia has disavowed all knowledge of The Face or any connection to him or to S.CORP.I.A.N.

For Women

Fashion was a bit different "across the pond" however, especially for women.
