Faster than Light
« on: September 19, 2012, 01:20:29 am »
I would like to bring your attention to a new indie game called Faster than Light, or FTL. Basically, you control a ship that goes hopping around galaxies, pursued by a rebel fleet as you attempt to get urgent information to the last Federation stronghold. It's easily the funnest game I've played in a while, and it's only nine bucks! Watch the trailer, and if you like what you see, give it a shot.

Oh, and you're definitely going to want to play on easy, if only because of the final boss.

way ahead of you... or, at least, half my Steam list is.

Also, the kickstarter for the game? they were asking 10 grand.  They GOT 200,548.  Yeah.  2000% above what they were asking.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

I hate fire in this game.  Always starts in the oxygen room.

This is why you pause and vent atmosphere as soon as you see them pop up...

I will drink to that!

While we're on the subject, fuck the Mantis.  Boarding bastards.

Reinforced doors is almost always my first upgrade. Between fire and boarders that shit's worth 20 scrap.

It's worse when it starts in the door room, particularly when you have the Type B Torus. One crew member and no way to vent the fire as it spreads everywhere is not fun.

I wish they'd make a mode where you just wander through space forever, instead of having to fight the flagship at the end.

Good news everyone! Enterprise 1701-A from Star Trek the ship from Firefly have been modded into the game!

(click to show/hide)

And remember folks, we come in peace (shoot to kill)!

The Turning The Tide v0.9 mod is the closest you can get. Get it now before the rewards for destroying Rebels are nerfed (because they will be!)!


Oh and folks, use Grognak's Mod Manager to install mods.

Despite knowing about indoctrination I thought it was a good idea to put a human Reaper near my office. Now I am a sentient husk :(.

Putting the oxygen generator in a spot where no one can reach it. Just brilliant. Even getting out of the first sector in that thing would be a hell of an achievement.

the crew have access via the connecting struts, It's hard to demo with a screenshot but works fine in-game

The crew litterly space walks to the oxygen generator, it quite funny to watch.
