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…

Feature: A near-perfect turn-based sci-fi strategy game

Into The Breach review

Look not to what high-speed, turn-based, sci-fi strategy wonder Into The Breach shares with its timeless predecessor FTL: Faster Than Light, but instead to how aggressively different it is. Though they share a soul of permadeath and moment-to-moment dilemmas, entire limbs have been lopped off and casually thrown aside, teeth and hair uprooted and plugged back in at strange new angles, eyeballs moved to places…

Into The Breach: a diary of doom

With apologies about continued teasing you with something you can't have quite yet, I wanted to follow-up our recent chat about the stressful wonders of FTL follow-up Into The Breach with an after-action report. This takes you through how the game actually works, and demonstrates the kinds of decisions, sacrifices and face-palming involved in every moment of it.

Kaiju & mechs clash in ace FTL follow-up Into the Breach

Any studio with a debut as strong as FTL might well be wary of that Difficult Second Album syndrome. How do you follow up a game so idiosyncratic and widely adored without risking disappointment? The answer, it turns out, is with a kaiju vs giant mech tactical masterclass. We’ve been playing Into the Breach.

Feature: What I Play When I'm Not Well

Comfort Games

Hello there, best keep your distance, for I am ill. Not just 'bit of a sniffle/put a bigger pullover on, you great ninny' ill, but 'noxious substances violently erupting from everywhere' ill. My daughter started going to nursery about three months ago, and has been bringing back a delightful cocktail of viruses and bacteria ever since - it's been a relentless assault on my immune…

FTL: Advanced Edition Out In April, Free To FTL Owners

Are you ready to have even more of your life sucked away by FTL's infinite, endlessly twisting black hole of finely calibrated systems? Then you are in luck, person with an improbable amount of time on your hands, because FTL: Advanced Edition is just around the corner. Or rather, the space equivalent of a corner. There are not a lot of corners in space.

Steel Yourself: FTL Advanced Edition’s Adds Metal Lifeforms

We reported last month about FTL's free, Chris Avellone-penned expansion, but now we know more about exactly what it contains. In a post over on the FTL site, the team introduce a new race of "metallic lifeforms" called The Lanius. Just when I thought I had enough ways to get all my friends killed.

Bye, Life: FTL Getting Free, Avellone-Penned Expansion

I'm beginning to think there's some kind of conspiracy to have Torment/Project Eternity/Wasteland 2/Every Classic RPG You Can Think Of story megamind Chris Avellone write everything. It's only a matter of time until we're all glorified flesh puppets for his dialogue. I'm not even sure what I'm writing right now is my own. Avellone could already be pulling the strings, plucking away at my thoughts…
