The final frontier is 40% closer today!

FTL: Faster Than Light, the starship managerial roguelike-like sim that will make you feel like a Starfleet captain, is available for only $5.99 on GOG.com. That's 40% off for the next 24 hours.

FTL: Faster Than Light is a tough game. Some would say that at times it's unfair. To that any spacecraft captain would promptly reply: "life isn't fair, crewman! Suck it up. Now zip-up that red uniform of yours and go check the contamination levels in the second airlock". They would be quite right. Life in the depths of space has no place for such concepts of fairness. You need to be prepared for solar winds blowing in your face. You need to expect to be suddenly boarded by alien pirates. You need to have a backup backup backup reactor core. That's just every day's reality for a starship commander. Although, hard as it may seem, you get to reroute power to the shields and launch photon torpedoes at stuff, so in the end it's way more satisfying than all other careers you could have.

FTL: Faster Than Light is a meticulous simulation of a spaceship commander's duties. The fate of the ship and its crew lies in your hands, so your performance has to be flawless. You have to track many of the craft's systems at once, issue orders to your men, and plan at least five steps ahead. The galaxy you'll be traversing is procedurally generated and full of danger, so the game provides infinite replayability and challenge. If you are a sci-fi fan and you enjoy difficult games, FTL: Faster Than Light will mesmerize you with its setting and unforgiving mechanics.

Boldly go, where several men have gone before and got their butts kicked by aliens! Grab FTL: Faster Than Light, for only $5.99!

LOL, me too.

Have been wanting this for a while but after a major outlay on my websites yesterday there's no spare cash left this month. Will definitely grab it in the next sale though (and hopefully by then my backlog will be less :)
Neat promo but I'll just save my cash for the upcoming Christmas promo here on GOG
It doesn't look bad at all but I'm not a big fan of sci-fi and with Primordia and BoUT: the Critter Chronicles being downloaded I will pass...
Everyone needs to play this.
This was one of the first kickstarter games to be released, right?
I don't have time to play all these!!! help!!!

Yup. Was the first Kickstarter game I received after starting pledging.

Also, I guess we now also know what game will be in the next HIB ;-).

Yes sir..agreed. It's a nice little time killer, challenging and fun. And for those wondering...you really don't have to be a sci-fi fan to like, or enjoy it, at least IMHO.

And therein lies the great dilemma. I guess I will buy this now, support the devs and gog a little bit, especially because its multi platform.

lol, just fyi, there are some people who find/found it frurstrating, partly due to the Rogue-like nature of the game, so just be aware of that. I initially felt that also. But once you play a bit, and "get" how to play the game, you will find yourself getting to the Boss at the end, nearly every play through. Unlocking new ships, and learning their strenghts (and weaknesses), to get to the Boss, makes for more extended fun as well. Ohh, sorry, am I inadvertly tempting folks again? ;)

It is a really, really, really nice game. Truly unique and fun. It's not PS:T or some grand adventure. But it is highly addictive in short bursts. Also, the modding community is growing fast.
Sold. I've been curious about this since it first came out. Almost everyone who's played it seems to speak highly of it, so I'm happy to drop $6 to try it for myself.
