Faster Than Light
Have your say

Faster Than Light packshot image
You manage the Kestrel and its crew as you explore the galaxy. Strategic, real-time combat involves managing power between essential systems and choosing which enemy systems to target. Meanwhile, you control your crew to keep the ship functioning and fight off intruders. The combat is difficult but, being a “roguelike-like” game, frequent permadeath is at the core of the experience.
While exploring the galaxy you will encounter a variety of situations requiring decision making that can result in many outcomes. Since all events are randomly generated, each play-through will be significantly different.

I think the requirements listed on the site for this game are a little high. I run this game at 130fps average when frame limiter is turned off, minimum -110, max -160.
