I still haven't beaten it on easy. I guess I am doing something wrong.....

Anyways it's a great time killer. No 2 games are ever the same.

Not the best game out there or anything, but pretty good for a time waster at $5(definitely more entertainment value than paying for a movie ticket).

Every time Steam features it I almost buy it, then I see all the other games in my library that I bought and haven't even installed yet. Eventually...

Looks like Starfleet Battles, a little bit.

I haven't played it yet, won't have time to play probably until the weekend.

Thanks a lot. Just what I needed was another computer game to waste my time!

I installed and played FTL last night for a couple of hours. That is a pretty darn good game, but I just wish it had more of a "Campaign" to it. Real bummer that you build up your ship for a couple of hours and it gets blown up and it is all over! I was like

I have lost an entire day to this game. It is tons of fun, although I have not managed to make it past the seventh sector. Did get the Engi Cruiser though.

Picked it up on Steam sale over the weekend for under $5. Holy crap is it addictive. I got so bummed when I was 2 systems from the end and all but one of my crew got wiped out-- my lone captain, trying desperately to patch up the ship and make it to an outpost to buy some help, when the ship jumped next to a sun and the fires just did him in. I opened up all the airlocks, and let him succumb to the sweet embrace of death, calmly sitting in the pilots chair.
