FTL - first kick starter game to be released

The beta was kind of fun, but the finished game. Wow, one of the funnest little games I've played in quite some time. Sound track is awesome you have your ship and your crew, you tool around space and have randomized events. The combat is really interesting, there are rts and pause elements you control your crew and weapons during the fights

Definitely worth the 10$

I'm watching the video on the game's website. Doesn't look very good. What's so fun about it?

Not even a screenshot or a link? You suck at trying to sell us on this game.

It looks dreadfully boring:

I think it's a great game. Not particularly deep, but I've played it for hours.

I've been playing it a lot over the last few days. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Seriously though it's a good game at any price. Very different than other offerings.

Yeah and it's not a major time sink. Because you due so fast you can just play a couple of games and back to the rear of your day lol (or die dozens of times over several hours heh)
