The Covert Front Episode 4: the Spark of Life is the fourth game of the Covert Front Series. The game is set in Lisbon, Portugal.


It is known that von Toten is currently in Lisbon, and that Kara is just flying there to find him. Manfred continues his plan to go to Lisbon and find Karl von Toten and go the Karl von Toten's house.

Kara gets to Lisbon via an airplane prepared by an unknown field agent working under cover.


Mateusz Skutnik and Karol Konwerski have discussed and they came to the conclusion they really should do a new Covert Front, in mid February 2011.[1] Teaser images and sketches have been published in Facebook on 9th of March 2011.[2]

In summer 2011, Mateusz stated that he was starting to work on this episode.

On 3rd of August 2011, he stated that the Covert Front episode 4 should come out in three to six months.[3] This leaves the release date somewhere between November 2011 and February 2012.

On 8th of August 2011, Mateusz posted a new teaser, with a photo of Kara. In PastelStories, there were also two post in the comment section, where Karl von Toten pleads for help, but Manfred remarks that he will capture Kara and lock her up for good. However, it is unknown if this was set up by the authors or not.[4]

Recently Mateusz confirmed, that Spark of Life shall be the last episode of the series.[5]

Finally, Spark of Life, now renamed to "The Spark of Life", was released on 28th of April 2012.
