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!

JudasIscariot: I wouldn't play it on one. You lose a lot of important information such as how much scrap you have, can't reroute power, etc. due to the fact that the game doesn't scale to fit the native resolution. And the loading times are horrible on my netbook :D.
It's supposed to scale in the latest version and as long as you select the right full screen mode... Unless you're running into the same problem as mpartel.

Just for the record, my experiences were based on the 1.02.6 version of the game and believe me, I messed around with the resolutions as best as I could aaaaaand nope. Perhaps there's an update that I don't know about where it makes the game detect the native resolution and adjust the view to fit without any hacks :D.

According to this post it's now scaling to fit on his 1024x768 screen, so it's at least horizontally scaled if not vertically too.
