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.
Faster Than Light is reminiscent of Battlestar Galactica in story and how it moves through the galaxy, but it’s small crew is by way of Firefly is this space rogue-like which is immensely enjoyable and infinitely replayable. This indie game is here thanks to the 2000% funding success on Kickstarter. And we are all better for it.
