It isn’t wholly uncommon for Early Access games to begin ambitiously, only to drastically reduce scope when the finish line eventually gets crossed. Breathedge starts off strongly, albeit with problems telegraphing its mechanics and progression. The Early Access content provided a large, connected sandbox with base building and a lot to upgrade and explore.
The 1.0 version launches this week with the rest of the game’s chapters, unfortunately changing gameplay genres and its focus along the way. There’s still a lot to like, but anyone who was expecting more of what made the game’s previous content so enjoyable will likely be disappointed.
Breathedge is often described as “Subnautica in space,” and that’s not wrong for the first three chapters. One of the main differences is that the story progresses in a more linear fashion and, notably, focuses on comedy instead of horror. You play as Man, whose grandfather has just passed away.
While accompanying the coffin to the funeral service, however, things go screwy. Man’s ship is badly damaged and his grandfather’s coffin is sucked out into the final frontier. He’ll need to not only survive in the vacuum of space, but delve into the mysterious titular company and its army of corpse-powered coffin robots.
The narrative in Breathedge can be a bit confusing, but it is generally funny. A lot of the jokes can fall flat, but many others elicited a fair amount of laughter from me, especially during cutscenes.
Man is joined by an AI known as Spacesuit and, since Man doesn’t talk, most of the game’s dialogue sees Spacesuit quipping at length. I found a lot of Spacesuit’s lines to be less funny than they could have been due to how quickly he speaks. He rattles lines off like Yahtzee but without the personality, or an overly bland auctioneer, which I feel is a missed opportunity.
