FTL Makers To Release Into the Breach on February 27th; Writing by Chris Avellone
Subset Games of FTL fame (consisting of two developers, Justin Ma and Matthew Davis) announced that their new game, Into the Breach, will be available for Windows PC via Steam on February 27th. It’s also expected to be available for Mac and Linux PCs, although at a later date; consoles and mobile devices will be considered for porting but are not a priority, according to Subset Games.
Into the Breach’s premise is very reminiscent of Pacific Rim, in case you’re familiar with the movie whose sequel will hit theaters next month. Into the Breach features writing by Chris Avellone and music by Ben Prunty. Below you can find a brief description of its main features.
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.
- 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!
