So what is The Riftbreaker about? Well, as I previously said, this game is a weird hybrid of hack and slash and tower defense, with some survival elements and base-building mixed in. Think of the gameplay as Subnautica crossed over with Diablo and Defense Grid: The Awakening.

Love building me some nice, enormous, and well-defended bases.

As for the story of The Riftbreaker, it seems pretty basic. You play as a scientist-soldier named Ashley who is sent on a one-way trip to a distant planet called Galatea 37 to help prepare it for human colonization. Your task is to gather resources to build a 2-way wormhole back to Earth. The resources aren’t all in one spot, so you’re going to have to travel around the planet to get them. Oh, and you’re riding in a sapient battlemech to help you out with that. Good luck.
