Get FTL: Faster Than Light for Free

FTL: Faster Than Light Enhanced Edition is now available with a 100% discount on the Epic Games Store as the latest in their 12 daily holiday game giveaways. This is yours to keep provided you pick it up within the next 24 hours or so, after which it will be replaced by a different freebie. Here's word on this Windows and macOS "roguelike-like" space sim:
Complex Strategic Gameplay
Give orders to your crew, manage ship power distribution and choose weapon targets in the heat of battle.

Play at Your Own Speed
Pause the game mid-combat to evaluate your strategy and give orders.

Unique Lifeforms and Technology
Upgrade your ship and unlock new ones with the help of six diverse alien races.

Be the Captain You Want
Hundreds of text based encounters will force you to make tough decisions.

Randomized Galaxy
Each play-through will feature different enemies, events, and results to your decisions. No two play-throughs will be quite the same.

No Second Chances!
Permadeath means when you die, there's no coming back. The constant threat of defeat adds importance and tension to every action.

Guilty As Charged.
Especially the part on moral sense, which has absolutely fuckall to do with trying to get a toehold against the Monopoly that is Steam.

I'm not sure you fully comprehend the concept of a monopoly. The mere fact that there are so many goddamned launchers that we're apparently required to install is the exact antithesis of a monopoly. It's actually annoying.

I'm not sure what the beef is that everyone has with Steam anyway. When you're the best, there's probably a reason.
Just like Intel, amirite?

I need to make another run at this game. I played a few games, got to the final battle at least once, don't recall if I actually won. But I know there was plenty of content I didn't get to....

The graphics may not be the greatest, but the tactical gameplay is amazing.
Yeah, the graphics are not a problem for me. The reward/pain curve however is just a bit tough, but I realize this is normal with a rogue like game. I just need to be in the right frame of mind. It is "on the list" for a future revisit. I'd like to at least get everything unlocked.

Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to win on easy over 90% of the time.

Fuck I hate Epic. For the second time this week, it's logged me out again and I can't get back in. I enter my password correctly but it just does this cycle bullshit and then asks me to enter it once more. Repeat ad nauseam.

If only they spent as much time working on the damn launcher as they do on these freebies.

If you like this game, you might also like Shortest Trip To Earth.
Very similar, but simpler and in many ways more enjoyable.

Bruh I think EGS is a pile of shit, and have exactly one non-free game in there (Satisfactory), which I didn't pay for myself, but I'm not turning down free games and I see zero moral implications to doing so. For fucks sake get a grip.

Amazing game, but it could be had for a 99 cents for years now.

Yes, but I just got it for free. I'll use the 99 cents for a coffee at McDonald's

Great game, btw

FTL was hard!

But soooo good. I have a couple hundred hours in that game. So much variation to the problem solving approach. Glad that Sweeney paid Subset Games twice: once for FTL, and once for Into the Breach.
