FTL: Faster Than Light This Week

The Steam Page for FTL: Faster Than Light has word that this indie spaceship strategy sim will be released on Friday, providing a pretty quick payoff for their Kickstarter Campaign from less than six months ago (thanks nin). Here's a reminder of what to expect from the game:

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.

PC gamers will often say things to the tune of "graphics don't matter" but I don't think most really mean it.

The other thing is that there's a point of diminishing returns, meaning the better the graphics are the less important they become. Playing the original Half Life is hard on the eyes and arguably on the gameplay, but HL2 still looks good, and will, even 20 years from now. HL2 graphics are crisp and clear and create a unified world. Bugs Bunny cartoons still look fantastic 60 years after creation, even if they don't look like a Pixar film.
