No Plan B is the second title from French independent game developer GFX47, whose past work at other companies includes Might & Magic Heroes: Kingdoms and Dungeon of the Endless.

The game's title comes from the player's inability to effect change once a mission has begun. All the work is done in the pre-planning phase - equipment, positioning, breached entrances, and more. A successful run will take account of all the possible factors that could impede the squad, but one misstep can cost you valuable resources or even your entire playthrough.

The nature of No Plan B's gameplay loop makes the prospect of a level editor a no-brainer - one of the main features of the game is the community made levels that, now, thanks to, are easily accessible.

Having only gone live on December 1st, No Plan B has already met positive reception from players, with some mentioning the tutorials being surprisingly effective at introducing players into its brutal concept.

No Plan B is currently 10% off on Steam, and as it's in Early Access, more features are planned for down the line. More campaigns, weapons, perks, and characters will all filter in over time, though content is hardly at a premium in No Plan B thanks to a considerable offering right out the gate, as well as a random mission generator that, whilst not quite as curated as developer or player made levels, is sure to create the occasional lucky gem.
