After waiting quite a while, Subset Games finally gave us the Linux port of Into the Breach and it's been working well for us but they just put out a fresh update to fix some issues.
Yesterday May 15 a small patch v1.23 went up, and it's good to see Subset Games give plenty of attention to the Linux version as they continue to ensure it works nicely. There's always going to be a few rough edges on a new version on any platform of course, as nothing is ever perfect.
Here's the quick highlights:
- Crash Fix: Game would crash if you beat the game w/o any living pilots in your mechs
- Linux Fix: Hardware cursor was causing crashes for some users
- Linux Fix: Audo driver selection improved
- Stats Fix: "Most Destructive" was no longer tracking properly
- Fixed: Laser Snow Bots would inappropriately cancel their attacks
- Varous minor graphical glitches fixed
- ACID will no longer apply to shielded units
- On-Screen keyboard bug fixes (for Gamepad play)
- Various minor UI fixes to fit localization
- Reputation value correctly resets when you leave an island
Previously they did also fix some Linux library issues, and adjusted the saving location. So if you did try it and had issues, it seems like now is a really good time to jump in. Additionally, this is a good excuse to let you know that the Linux version was also released on GOG around a week or so after. So now you have a good choice on where to pick it up.
Buy Into the Breach from Humble Store (50% off until May 21), GOG and Steam.
Have you been playing it recently? Let us know what you think to it.
I did not get all achievements yet, but I'm glad I will be able to now. Now I just need to remember which store I bought it from...
A masterclass in design, so simple and elegant, yet rich and layered. Finding clever solutions that snatch victory from the jaws of defeat is VERY rewarding.
It's great that we have it on Linux now, as well.
Quoting: jensI hope this game will also be released for Ipad's. I have both FTL and this one in my Steam library, but actually I've played FTL much more on my IPad. I guess I would do the same with Into the Breach.OK, so I'm not the only one that is not really into playing Gameboy-looking games on my nice desktop with big monitors and keyboard and mouse. A game like this should be on a handheld IMO. *quick Internet search* Ah, it's on the Nintendo Switch, but digital format only. Hmm, I don't know. I think I'll stick with Fort Triumph for now. In the handheld world, I still haven't beaten Fire Emblem: Fates Conquest.
