The second most-played game in my library is "Into the Breach" by Subset Games. So I had to finally write a review! Here it is:

lib.reviews/into-the-breach

In short, it's a great turn-based strategy game, dark in its overall tone, with very tight mechanics bringing to mind some of the best 16 and 32-bit classics like "Advance Wars". Highly recommended for any fans of the genre.

@eloquence how is it compared to Faster Than Light? i like ftl but it feels too randomly generated where it feels unfair sometimes. i've heard that itb is better balanced, but what's your opinion?

@nytpu

It's definitely much kinder to the player, IMO -- there's the occasional map that feels almost unwinnable, but the game has more built-in buffer before permadeath. It took me ~100 hours to get a full FTL victory at "normal" and only 10 (if that) for ITB.
