In 2012, developer Subset Games released FTL (Faster Than Light). It was one of the early games in the roguelike renaissance of the 2010s, and since its release on iOS devices, has maintained a devoted fanbase.
Today, we’re playing Into the Breach, the long-awaited follow-up to FTL. As opposed to its predecessor, Into the Breach requires more careful planning than real-time reaction. However, many of the procedural aspects of FTL survive, resulting in varying experiences each time you boot up this new turn-based strategy title.
For more on Into the Breach, read Edmond Tran’s review, in which he lauds the game’s tactical systems for making you feel “completely in control.”
