FTL: Faster Than Light is a lot more rogue-lite in its gameplay approach. Players take control of a spaceship and must find ways to overcome different threats like space pirates, missile attacks and more. It’s not strange to divert your engine power to shields or board an enemy ship in order to survive. With several alien races, numerous decisions to make and permadeath, FTL offers a new experience on every single playthrough.
As for Into The Breach, it focuses on the battle between giant mechs and hostile aliens called the Vek. You’ll have to use superior tactics to beat the Vek but if you fail, it’s possible to send a pilot back into time for an advantage on the next playthrough.
