FTL: Faster Than Light ($1.99) is one of the best video games of the past several years, and it really found a nice home when arrived on the iPad in spring of 2014. So when FTL developer Subset Games announces a new game, it’s worth getting excited for. Today the developer has unveiled Into The Breach, a turn-based strategy game about fighting off an alien invasion using bad ass mechs from the future. Honestly, do you need any other description besides that to want this game? Did we mention it’s from the folks who made FTL? Is there a phrase that’s more instant than “insta-buy?" Check out the awesome trailer for Into The Breach.
Ok, looks great, right? But here’s the catch: Into The Breach has only been announced for Windows, Mac, and Linux at this time. You might also remember that those are the platforms that FTL originally launched on, and that even though it took a little time the game finally did make its way to mobile, and the world was a better place for it. I have a feeling that even though it’s not officially announced, Into The Breach is bound to make its way to mobile at some point. Or maybe I’m just trying to will it to happen. Either way, Into The Breach game is looking amazing no matter the platform, so we’ll keep an eye on its development just for fun and hope that someday we can all play this on our iOS devices too.
UPDATE: Almost missed in this new game anouncement is the fact that FTL: Faster Than Light has dropped to its lowest price ever on iPad, so if you haven’t gotten in on that yet now is the time to do so for the obscene price of $2.99. Link added below!
