Into the Breach released this morning - the followup from the devs of FTL. 

http://store.steampowered.com/app/590380/Into_the_Breach/

Impressions: https://www.polygon.com/2018/2/26/17053646/into-the-breach-preview-impressions-difficulty-ftl-roguelike-pc

I'll snag it and play later today, just letting everyone know it's out. $14.99 and console/mobile are ďnot a priority at this time,Ē, per that above article.

Mechs plus the pedigree of FTL?  Colour me interested.

Got this earlier, it's fantastic. A descendent of FTL in spirit onl, very different gameplay, though the presentation is very similar. Has a puzzle element in which you have to protect landmarks (or destroy them) knowing your enemies moves in advance. Makes it one of the more interesting turn based systems I've encountered.

I'm going to escape, come back, wipe this place off the face of the Earth, obliterate it and you with it.

Hmm, I got this. I've found it pretty shallow compared to FTL. Not enjoying it that much on the second play through, feels like the first game again.

Yeh seems that way, first few hours were great though.

Iíve played enough of this to know that itís not for me. Itís no FTL for sure.

 Itís too much like chess and I donít particularly like chess either. Individual runs also take too long so this is not a Ąjust another runď sort of game.I donít particularly like that you unlock stuff through achievements either because that means I wonít ever own all of the teams or upgrades.

Itís all mechanics but unlike chess its randomness makes it so you can absolutely lose a map and a perfect island on the first turn. Lastly I donít really get why a game that is built around a very small map and clear move sets of the pieces needs so many mobs that restrict your movement. Webbing your mechs feels very cheap when the game does it so often.

The chess comparison is spot on, that's probably why it appeals to me and won't to others.

Bad, simple chess. With randomness.

It was diverting, but not worth $15.

Yeh $15 is probably a bit much for a title with such little depth, but I actually like the game mechanics. About 14 hours played and I still haven't beat it, maybe I'm bad at it?

If you're playing normal. Yeah. I didn't beat it first time, but got about one round off. Second time through I beat it.
