Reroute power to the awesomenator!
FTL: Faster Than Light, the "spaceship simulation real-time roguelike-like" that puts you in the command bridge of an intergalactic spacecraft, is now available for 10% off on GOG.com. That's only $8.99 until Friday, September 21 at 10:59 AM GMT.
Are you a Trekker? Or a Firefly fan? Or maybe you love the intensity of Battlestar Galactica? Cultural diversity of Babylon 5? Goofy badassness of Farscape? Underrated charm of Andromeda? Comedic brilliance of Red Dwarf? If the answer is "yes", we bet that there's a part of you--maybe even quite a large part--that want's nothing more but to sit in the comfortable captain's armchair in a starship's command bridge and tell your crew to "make it so". If space-adventure is your kind of adventure and micro-managing is your kind of managing--FTL is your kind of game.
In every playthrough, FTL: Faster Than Light creates a unique procedurally-generated game world for you to explore. Every location you visit by the means of your FTL drive offers a random text-based event you'll need to react to, and the consequences of your choice will affect the further gameplay. Apart from exploration this game focuses on starship management. You'll need to keep all the systems operational and upgrade them with new technologies. Your crew develops as well, gaining experience as your mission continues. While in combat, you'll need to issue orders, track the enemies, monitor your systems' status, and generally focus on many things at once--just like any true spaceship commander would do. But unlike Kirk, Picard, Adama, Reynolds, and other iconic officers, you'll have the unsurpassed combat advantage of an active pause.
Get ready to boldly go where no PC gamer has gone in quite a while in FTL: Faster Than Light, for the reduced launch-week price of only $8.99!
