Broken Lines Logo 05 CU logo 1

A squad of soldiers crashlands in the middle of enemy territory. With no leaders alive and no available orders, the group must find a way to deal with their situation and internal conflicts, before a mysterious fog engulfs them and enemy forces hunt them down.

Broken Lines is a game about a group of men with different personalities, ideals, ethical standards and battle plans. Individuals with very different opinions about whether they should carry out their duty - or simply try and survive. You experience their journey from their different perspectives and decide what their goals should be, what they plan, how they carry it out, who will perish and who will survive.

Broken Lines is a simultaneous turn-based tactical game with a rogue-inspired structure. The core-gameplay consists of multiple choice story-events, resource management and missions with pause based planning and real-time execution.

After almost 3 and a half years in development, we are now delighted to announce that Broken Lines has been released on PC Windows and Linux on Steam and Windows on GOG! What's more, a macOS version and a Nintendo Switch port are in the works and we hope to release them soon - keep checking back for more information.

We are also working on adding the Linux version to GOG as well, but that needs a bit more time.

Learn about the Game

If you want to learn more about the game first, be sure to check out our release trailer and our three dev blogs on:

What's more, as Broken Lines is heavily story-driven and focused on 8 squad members, knowing a bit about them, their history, and what their moral standings are, is vital to successfully completing the game.

To help you out, we've created these quick character cards to introduce you to the squad!









Broken Lines was released on Steam and GOG on the 25th of February at 12:00 CET.

It seems a concept different from other strategy games in turns, I have my attention put on this title, keep up the good work. Greetings.

You sold me at :

- turn-based tactics
- non linear
- randomized

Plus , aside we are having a real drought in turn-based tactics games ( nothing like JA2 in miles anywhere ... ) , you took an unique concept for environment where the game will be set - WW1 . I think you probably had some inspiration in older TBT games like Silent Storm , at least a bit .

Definitely keep it more deep ( in long run ) and more non-linear ( like JA2 ) - there are some nice TBT games like Hard West , but they limited the decisions of player with bigger linearity .

Also , the whole GUI is beutiful , gritty and somewhat dark , yet at same time , also showing humane side subtly . I already see this is going to be a great game . Not many contenders , either - only End State is in making .
