Into the Breach is the upcoming turn based Robots vs Monsters strategy game by the creators of FTL. Recently PC Gamer has been playing an updated build and shared the gameplay video above. I can't make out much from the game itself except the person playing it was experimenting with it in ways that weren't entirely easy to understand. One thing I did take away from the game is that it looks pretty far along in development and it seems like every choice you make impacts how the battles will turn out. Into the Breach also seems like it's designed for mobile devices in mind as well as PC so it seems we might be able to play it on whichever platform you want. Eventually.

The game also looks very much like it's the next game from the creators of FTL. I like how the interface, graphics and music(same composer as FTL Ben Prunty) all harken back to the tone of FTL.

There is no release date for Into the Breach but when it gets one i'll write more about it. That said from the gameplay footage my guess is it will launch sometime in 2018 but don't mark it on your calendar just yet.

I like the look of it, and it reminds me a bit of advance wars in terms of the unit types and abilities. I'm gonna hafta keep tabs on this one.

Yeah it does, I didn't think of that comparison.
