I finally got around to playing FTL during the downtime here at SXSW, and good lord, it’s as good as I’ve heard. There’s some annoyances to it, but it’s one hell of a roguelike.

Figured I’d take the time to actually post about it now that I’ve had my first win. Engi Cruiser Type A, focused on drones and ion cannons, with a small bomb to take out some specific parts of the boss. I had it set up with a level 3 shield and high engines for evasion, and just barely skirted by.

I can’t think of a game since Binding of Isaac that had my heart pumping like this at the last second.
