One of the projects I backed, Faster than Light, has finally be released. BUY IT
I’ve been playing the Beta version for a little while now, but I didn’t really want to talk about it before it was officially released.
The game is amazing fun. Taking a crew through dangerous space, fighting off ships, piloting through asteroid fields, dealing with enemies boarding your ship, all the while being chased by a huge Rebel Fleet you have to out run, with limited ammo and fuel. Its a serious kick ass experience.
Its a game I can happily put an hour or so into each day, and then put in another one because I want to do just a little better. It’s hard. You will die. Sometimes by pure bad luck, and others because you just didn’t do what needed to be done. I haven’t actually finished the main mission yet, though I have had intense battles with the *SPOILER*
Its one of the best “quick” RPGs I’ve played in the last year or so. Indie or not.
