FTL is a spaceship simulation roguelike-like. Its aim is to recreate the atmosphere of running a spaceship exploring the galaxy (like Firefly/Star Trek/BSG etc.) In any given episode of those classic shows, the captain is always yelling “Reroute power to shields!” or giving commands to the engineer now that their Warp Core is on fire. We wanted that experience, as opposed to the “dog fighti... See moreng in space” that most videogames focus on. We wanted a game where we had to manage the crew, fix the engines, reroute power to shields, target the enemy life support, and then figure out how to repel the boarders that just transported over!
Member Play Times
66 hrs to finish the game once on normal difficult and get at least one layout of each ship, but can be less if you are very good at it. On 123th playtrhogh I manage to beat the game on normal difficult.
Oh, you cannot put in more than 1000 hours (1423 :).
10 times simpler than Nethack but extremely playable. Probably 30-100h to beat it on Easy. Normal adds 200-500h (and normal is a lot more difficult). Doing every ship on hard and only done 3/13 so far, hence the additional 500+ hours.
Play times per ship varies between 2h and 8h. 13 ships. Times 3. Replayability 99%.
