Into The Breach patch fixes false victories, adds initial touchscreen support

While we're all distracted by BattleTech's intricate and ponderous mech warfare, the polar opposite, lightning-quick approach to turn-based giant robo-combat has been busy too. Into The Breach's latest patch quietly fixes a dozen-odd problems I doubt many of us even noticed this ridiculously slick game ever had, including one that meant getting your whole team killed in the final mission didn't always mean a game…

RPS interviews Into The Breach’s developer about hurting our feelings

The folks at Subset Games are responsible for the games FTL and its follow-up Into The Breach, which means that they are also responsible for some of the most frustrating yells I've done alone on an airplane. I'm sorry to those around me, but I thought I was going to finally complete a run and then everyone I loved exploded or died from lack of…

The howling vortex of hypercapitalism that is Christmas may be behind us, but judging from the amount of snow outside my window, it's still the season to be Santa-esque. Not to be one-upped by GOG and Humble, Steam are now offering a free copy of FTL with every purchase of the fantastic Into The Breach, a drum-tight tactical puzzle that has captured the hearts, minds…

Buy Into The Breach, get free FTL

This is perhaps a slightly perverse offer, seeing as so many folks who have been jonesing for Into The Breach have the jitters and the sweats specifically because it's the follow-up to the revered FTL. However, if you've managed to come to this backwards, i.e. got all hot'n'bothered about Into The Breach's ultra-deft, ultra-lean apocalyptic turn-based strategy without ever having played its brutal star-trekking predecessor…

Into The Breach’s launch trailer stomps out a little early

From a conclave of Earth nations comes the order: DESTROY ALL MONSTERS. Such is the way of Into The Breach, the kaiju-fighting turn-based tactical game from FTL studio Subset Games. Everyone at RPS who has played Into The Breach--let's call them 'the jerks', for simplicity's sake--has raved about fighting monsters with warbots through its small, focused battles on little grids in only a handful of…

FTL follow-up Into The Breach is finally out this month

For the past couple of months, we've been bragging shamelessly about how we've already got beta copies of Into The Breach, the XCOM vs Pacific Rim vs Advance Wars-y follow-up to the timeless FTL: Faster Than Light. This ugly crowing has an expiration date, you'll be glad to hear - and that date is the end of this very month.

Getting Over It, Night In The Woods, Baba Is You & Into The Breach lead IGF 2018 finalists

It's that time again already - 2018's Independent Games Festival hands out its best-in-indie gongs on March 21 (as part of the Game Developers Conference), and these are the games in line for a prize. And, more importantly, a big shot at success thanks to the profile, although it should be noted that a fair few of these have done rather well for themselves already.…
