The Best Games Period - Honorable Mention - FTL: Faster Than Light

Jack Gardner



When the roguelike trend crested several years ago, FTL stood high among its brethren. There wasn't really much like it at the time (and to be honest, there still isn't much like it). Fleeing from an oncoming force of Rebels, a lone ship must make its way across the stars to alert the Federation of the oncoming danger - and perhaps equip itself well enough along the way to defeat the Rebel flagship. It's hard, tactical, and completely different every time you boot up a new game. The team at Subset Games should be very proud of what they achieved. 


So why are we talking about FTL now? A. Jack has been itching to talk about it for a while, but couldn't nail down a full episode  co-hosts B. Subset Games' next title, Into the Breach, will be launching sometime soon and sometimes it's nice for this show to be somewhat topical.  


With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode.
