FTL: Faster Than Light

FTL is now available in 9 languages! English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Simplified Mandarin!

The free expansion, FTL: Advanced Edition, is available now! Content additions include: new alien race, events, weapons, playable ships, drones, and more! Also adds additional musical tracks by Ben Prunty, and events by Tom Jubert and guest writer Chris Avellone.

If you already own FTL it should update the new content automatically. Advanced Edition is included free for anyone who purchases the game from this point forward.

In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It's a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party? This "spaceship simulation roguelike-like" allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.Key Features:
  • Complex Strategic Gameplay - Give orders to your crew, manage ship power distribution and choose weapon targets in the heat of battle.
  • Play at Your Own Speed - Pause the game mid-combat to evaluate your strategy and give orders.
  • Unique Lifeforms and Technology – Upgrade your ship and unlock new ones with the help of six diverse alien races.
  • Be the Captain You Want - Hundreds of text based encounters will force you to make tough decisions.
  • Randomized Galaxy - Each play-through will feature different enemies, events, and results to your decisions. No two play-throughs will be quite the same.
  • No Second Chances! - Permadeath means when you die, there's no coming back. The constant threat of defeat adds importance and tension to every action.

Since the only people reading this are those who haven't played before, this review is for you.
SO SO glad I stuck with this game. You will get your ass kicked over and over on easy mode, and just about the time you're ready to quit, you'll go check out a gamer play-thru on Youtube. And you'll be like Ah, so if I just use a couple burst lasers and a small bomb, I can get to the boss. And then you'll get to the boss, but you'll get whupped. So you'll try again, only this time you'll make sure you got a cloaking device and a defense drone. And it takes a couple of times, but you finally beat the boss and you'll go PHUCK YEAH OMG I DID IT. And then you'll be like let's try a different ship, and you'll realize the devs have created each ship to offer a different unique tactic and challenge. And after playing a hundred times and beating the boss with each ship, maybe just maybe you think to yourself, What will happen if I turn on advanced mode....
And that my friend, is when the real fun begins.
