'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.'
'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.'

TotalBiscuit's review was complimentary: WTF Is... - FTL - Faster Than Light ?
, he liked it so much he put it as his 3rd best game of 2012
I think this is a good price, as the game was £2.09 in the Steam Winter Sale, however it has been as low as £1.19 8 months ago (pre-Brexit vote). It's £1.49 on the HumbleStore
until Sun 12th 18:00.
