Broken Lines weekly digest - the 5th edition



Welcome back everyone, to this week’s Broken Lines news blast. We’ve got a new character to reveal to you, as well as the regular fun reflection on the game’s early development.

Know your Squad
This week we are introducing the Veteran soldier, King.



Veteran King is a big, intimidating man from a family with a strong tradition of military service. King has a talent for manipulating people - with his meaty fists if necessary. For him, morality is a grey zone meant to be challenged.

Gamescom

Broken Lines Beta
Are you interested in helping us in our quest to create Broken Lines? We are looking for beta testers to play through the game, find bugs and tell us what you feel needs improving.

If you think you are up to the task, sign up in here for a chance to get into the beta.

Game Development Fun
When you are adding models to the game, collision detection is vital as it prevents the models from walking into each other. When they are not set properly, this sort of situation becomes common.



So that’s it for this week’s digest, we hope that you’ve enjoyed it!

Broken Lines News Blast - 4th Edition



After a short break, the weekly Broken Lines news blast is back! We’ve got all your favourite segments, from squad members to development snapshots.

But that’s not all, this week we’ve got something new - a way to get access to the Broken Lines beta.

Know your Squad
In our last edition we highlighted the squad Medic, Hailey. If you’re interested in learning more about her, check out the last news blast.

Now to this week's reveal, we've got Recruit Fry, the Stubborn Nerd.



The youngest in the squad and an educated combat medic, Fry has high ideals and the squad often perceives him as self righteous - and they're not far off. On top of that, he has trouble aiming when under pressure, so he prefers to stay out of the line of fire.

Game Development Fun
Finally, we continue with our popular look at some fun snaps from the game's development.

Looking back at some of our early works made us think that we might have had an attraction to dramatic poses, as you can see in this screenshot.



The opponent that has just been shot seems to be practicing kung-fu fighting in his last moments.

So that’s it for this week’s digest, we hope that you’ve enjoyed it!

Reviews

“I was lucky enough to try this original tactical turn-based game set in Eastern Europe during World War II, full of style, roguelike elements and a compelling story inspired by titles like Frozen Synapse, X-Com and Banner Saga.”
Turn Based Lovers

“Between its decision-led story and the clever way of managing tactical decisions, Broken Lines definitely remains one to watch for fans of the squad strategy genre.”

About This Game


The squad has crash-landed behind enemy lines, in the heart of Eastern Europe. With no officers, no leaders, and no intel, they must find an unbreakable resolve if they are to survive.
But with only their training and instincts to guide them, survival becomes a difficult goal. First of all, they need to learn to work together to have any hope of coping with the challenges ahead.
Each survivor has their own views on what to do, and their own principles on what is acceptable. Some want to investigate what caused their crash, others want to stay low and avoid detection by the enemy. There are even whispers of desertion.
It is your task to be the unseeing hand that will guide this ragtag group of soldiers through their struggles. Make your decisions wisely, for they will have real consequences on the fates of the survivors.

  • Tactical RPG with diverse characters. Experience the story through the eyes of each soldier as they fight for survival in an alternative WW2 setting.
  • Turn-based planning with simultaneous execution (WeGo turn-based gameplay)
  • Authentic tactical choices: suppression, destructible cover, realistic ballistics, and camouflage are at your disposal.
  • Rogue-like campaign structured with different narrative paths, resources, and permadeath.
  • A challenge for even the most experienced gamer. A far-reaching moral system means that the soldiers may desert at any moment if you prove to be incompetent.
  • An emotional story, tense atmosphere, and multiple endings based on the decisions that you make.

“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may
be; for without victory, there is no survival.”

― Winston Churchill
