Broken Lines is a tactical RPG taking place during an alternate-history World War II. You play as a squad of soldiers deep behind enemy lines after a plane crash. The squad must confront the horror of the war, mysterious military enemies, and their own hopes and fears in order to get back to safety.
The gameplay combines tactical RPG play with pause-and-play combat. Using a mixture of tactical nous and good reflexes, you'll need to make your way through each battle scenario, keeping your squad alive along the way. Will they make it home, or will the horrors of war engulf them?
Each soldier has their own personality and ideas on what needs to happen next. Some want to investigate what caused the crash that left them in hostile territory, while others want to lay low and wait for rescue. There are even whispers of desertion.
You are the “unseen hand” that guides this ragtag group of soldiers to safety and possible rescue. Whether it’s as simple a choice as to which way to go next, or something as serious as how to engage their mysterious foes, every decision you make is serious and significant.
