We’ve learned via the inimitable Rock, Paper, Shotgun that the FTL devs (Subset Games) are working on something new. Into the Breach announced today is a 3/4 view turn-based strategy game that’s very much like turn-based Pacific Rim in 16-bit graphics, Into the Breach is looking like a slick little indie.
What’s more? Music will be created by Ben Prunty, and the world and story will be penned by Chris Avellone. The official site is over yonder, and well… it all sounds pretty great to us. Take a look at the official synopsis below. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but we do know it’ll be coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs.
What is Into the Breach?
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.
- 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!
