Evan is a friend first and foremost, but last year we became co-workers at our day jobs too. Which, is just the coolest thing. It pleases me greatly he’s now a father (to one h*ckin’ cute kid, I might add). I think it’s safe to say 2018’s been good to him, and to games. And after a hiatus of making a list for 2017, he’s back with a surprising amount of games played this year for a new dad.
In everything from trailers to the Steam page itself, you’ll be reminded that Into the Breach is the next game from Subset Games, “the makers of FTL“. This, if nothing else is a reminder that FTL is great, but know that Into the Breach is even better. This is a game of tactics that’s chess-like where you must think in moves ahead and care about positioning of units, despite there being randomness that can upset these plans. While Into the Breach is not FTL, it evokes similar feelings of dread to losing it all with one poor decision that’s backed by excellent and smart gameplay that will have you playing to the point where you’ve lost track of the time.
