FTL devs announce tactical kaiju battler Into The Breach

Turn-based tactical monster killer

The creators of FTL have announced their next game, Into the Breach [official site], and it looks a bit like the isometric, tactical version of EDF I've always wanted. Tasked with defending the last remnants of humanity from giant monsters, you'll protect cities and fight monsters in randomly generated turn-based scenarios. It looks gorgeous, as you can see in the trailer below, and will have a new soundtrack by Ben Prunty, FTL's composer, as well as writing and world-building from the keyboard of Chris Avellone.

I'd quite like to be playing this immediately but I can wait until...well, there's no release date yet. Here's everything we know:

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!

I want it I want it I want it I want it.
