Reviews

“Without that sense of tension and dread there wouldn’t be the satisfaction at the end of jobs well done. And Broken Lines is able to deliver both of those feelings.”
KOTAKU

“If you’ve silently stormed, kicked doors, frozen synapses, or formed jagged alliances in the past and enjoyed it, expect to break lines with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“If you’re looking for a gruelling test of tactics and ethics, then pat down your helmet, break in your boots, and descend into this all-too-human kind of hell.”
PC Gamer

About This Game



Your squad has crash-landed behind enemy lines, in the heart of an alternate history Eastern Europe. With no intel or leadership to support them, these soldiers must fight their way back home before the horrors of war break them. Teamwork and strategy are paramount…

‘The Dead and the Drunk’ - The expansion for the tactical action game, Broken Lines.


Dead are returning from their graves! If crash landing behind enemy lines was already a challenging experience for our squad of vagabonds, they sure as Hell didn’t sign up for this kind of insane, supernatural encounter, a three-sided fight for survival against both the living and the undead. Yet now it is upon them to discover the source of this occult magic in the war-ridden land that they find themselves in, and hopefully eliminate it before hordes of zombies spread all over the world. But how does one retain their sanity when facing enemies that have been spat out of hell?



  • Combat is similar to that of a turn-based tactical RPG, but soldiers move only when action phase starts.
  • Choices you make will shape the story to your liking leading to a different campaign endings.
  • Tactical action

‘The Dead and the Drunk’ - The expansion for the tactical action game, Broken Lines.


  • Scout the battlefield, lure undead hordes to fight your enemies, then once both sides are suitably weakened, charge in and mop up the weakened survivors in one fell swoop - or bring out the biggest guns in your arsenal and simply blast your sorrows away.
  • Occult mysteries.
  • Inhuman bosses
  • Booze and guns. The more your soldiers drink, the more perks and abilities they get.
