Into The Breach is basically a top-down Advance Wars-style Turn-Based Strategy adaptation of Pacific Rim.
Subset Games, the folks behind the excelent rogue-like space sim FTL: Faster Than Light have just announced their next game: Into The Breach. Essentially, it's a top-down turn-based strategy game, in which you play as the remnants of human civilization, fighting off giant monsters with powered mech suits. Think Advance Wars meets Pacific Rim.
"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," wrote the dev in a blog post.
Here's everything we know about the 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!
The game currently does not have a release date, with the developer stating it will be released "when it's done". It will release on Windows, Mac, and Linux, but not all three simultaneously. We're assuming we'll see a PC release first.
