FTL is easily one of the best indie games I have ever played, bar none. It’s better than most non-indie games I have played. It’s now making a come back with a free update, adding more weapons, more subsystems, more drones, more danger, more music and good times. For those of you whom have not played FTL it is a Sci-fi Roguelike, that means you have one life to finish the game and if you die it’s back to start. Unlockable ships and ship layouts tailor the game to your playstyle, but you’ll have to earn them first. There’s a world of decisions to make in this game and they all have an affect on you and your crew. I have 5 steam keys that I’m willing to shell out to anyone who wants to experience FTL. First 5 people to post and ask for one will get one.
For anyone who already is a fan of FTL check out the awesome lego sets that are currently in the review phase at this site.
The lego sets represent every ship available to you in the game and look pretty sweet.
This game was once upon a time a Kickstarter game that was put up by two guys, Justin Ma and Mathew Davis not unlike Stonehearth. They received overwhelming support earning 200k out of a goal of 10k and their game has obviously been release and is critically acclaimed as well as just being freakin’ awesome. I personally own this game on 3 different mediums (humble store, GOG, Steam) because I honestly can’t throw enough money at these guys as this is one of the few Kickstarters I have missed and deeply regret. I hope that come September of 2014 Stonehearth will be able to have a similar awesome release with much praise, but for now FTL can tie some of you over until alpha/beta.
As a side, does anyone want to see anything in particular in this update?
