Ever wanted to be in control of a spaceship, but don’t have enough geeky friends willing to play Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator with you?
FTL: Faster Than Light is a surprisingly deep indie favorite that’ll definitely scratch that itch. Don’t be fooled by its simple graphics-- this game is addictive and engrossing.
It also means that your decisions (and horrible ship explosion killing everyone on board) are final.
Hostiles boarding your ship? Just open your doors and let the void of space choke them!
Also, it’s sometimes necessary to divert power, for example, from the shields to the engine, so feel free to imagine a dramatic Trek-esque scenario when this happens. “It’s too dangerous, Captain!” “Damn it, Scotty, it’s our only hope!”
If I’ve got a lot of time to game… just one more turn...
