FTL: Faster Than Light is an addictive indie roguelike developed by Subset Games. Following its incredibly successful Kickstarter origins – in which over 1000% of the original $10,000 goal was pledged by over 4,000 backers – the game is now available directly from the game’s website or via Steam. FTL focuses on intergalactic exploration, space ship combat, diplomacy and the difficult roguelike experience. For the uninitiated, roguelikes are games defined by the aforementioned tricky gameplay, randomly generated universes and dreaded permanent death.
