Yeah, I ended up putting more hours into Slay the Spire than this, but I think that’s just because of the scaling difficulty. I’d say this is the better game, and one I’d happily recommend at its low price.

So, is the game like FTL or not? I've heard conflicting reports about that

Aesthetically kinda similar- very different gameplay-wise.

If they had different design teams, they wouldn’t be mentioned in the same sentence.

Yeah, they are quite literally nothing alike in terms of how they play. I would say the closest analog to Into The Breach is the XCOM games, although there is no RNG and I think that there are probably fewer mechanics to internalize in ItB.

Any of you guys played Fights in Tight Spaces? Definitely the closest thing to Into the Breach I’ve played, as far as the puzzle of positioning and trying to get enemies to hurt each other, but it also has a Slay the Spire-ish deck-building element. Been playing the shit out of it for a year, and it just left EA yesterday.

I've watched someone play it and I agree with the comparison... even the different decks for fight styles had that different team styles vibe in Into the Breach.
