Moonbreaker miniature tactics game from Subnautica studio

[Update #2]: With its very first major update, Moonbreaker has removed all of its monetization!

[Update]: Moonbreaker has now arrived alongside mostly positive reviews on Steam.

After experimenting with both a multiplayer shooter (Natural Selection 2) and a nearly combat-free exploration game (Subnautica), Unknown Worlds Entertainment are looking to try something a little bit different with the upcoming Moonbreaker. As such, Moonbreaker is going to be a turn-based strategy game heavily influenced by tabletop tactics games.

The most obvious comparison here is the simple fact that all of your units in Moonbreaker will be adorable little miniatures in action poses. And in true tabletop fashion, you'll also be able to paint literally every single part of your miniatures in order to have them look exactly as awesome (or as garish) as you like!

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted gameplay reveal trailer as that should answer any questions you might have about what Moonbreaker is really going for. Have a look:

If this sounds like the type of strategy game you'd love to dive into, you'll be happy to hear that Moonbreaker will be heading into Early Access this September 29th. The initial version will bring with it both online multiplayer and two singleplayer game modes, along with a total of 39 miniatures to collect. Future updates will, unsurprisingly, add more miniatures, maps, major and currently unannounced features, as well as a variety of cosmetics to spruce up your little army.

Once Moonbreaker actually arrives I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a little bit more about it and its Early Access plans over at Steam. Enjoy!
