Into the Breach This Month

FTL developer Subset Games announces a February 27th release date for the Windows edition of Into the Breach, a turn-based strategy game that shares FTL's retro feel (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). The announcement trailer from way back offers a look at gameplay, and here are more details on the project:

The remnants of human civilization are threatened by gigantic creatures breeding beneath the earth. You must control powerful mechs from the future to hold off this alien threat. Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game from the makers of FTL.

Key Features:

  • Defend the Cities: Civilian buildings power your mechs. Defend them from the Vek and watch your fire!
  • Perfect Your Strategy: All enemy attacks are telegraphed in minimalistic, turn-based combat. Analyze your opponent's attack and come up with the perfect counter every turn.
  • Build the Ultimate Mech: Find powerful new weapons and unique pilots as you battle the Vek infestation across Corporate-Nation islands.
  • Another Chance: Failure is not an option. When you are defeated, send help back through time to save another timeline!

Big FTL fan here, had a great time exploring space and listening to new music with that game.

The silly dialog and choose-your-own-adventure element gave it a lot of replay, toss in random weapons from shops and super fun gameplay... FTL is a classic!

Into the Breach doesnít have the choose-your-own-adventure, and Iím skeptical of the gameplay has enough depth.

That looks sweet! FTL was so good, I'd almost consider this a blind buy.

Also, some of us had discussed a "Pacific Rim" TBS game a while back, and this fits the bill pretty closely.

The only thing that flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself.
