I've finally played FTL, probably less than 2 hours was spent. The tutorial was definitely helpful and easy. I didn't do the virus or spider missions, I knew from Cheerful Ghost that definitely shouldn't do the spider one. I made it to the third sector, but that is where I ran out of fuel. I obviously need to keep an eye on that and buy some when I can. I found out (via a Google Search) that I could attempt to jump, but choose to wait and use a distress signal. Unfortunately, an enemy ship (a Mantis one, I think) found me and started firing at me. They had great weapons, including a laser that penetrated my shields. Unfortunately, they took out my weapons and caused some fires. I had crews repairing and trying to put out the fire, but my oxygen system was also damaged. Unfortunately, the three crew members (one an Engi) died while trying to repair everything (fire and lack of oxygen). Once the ship destroyed my weapons system, my ship blew up. I did try to take out their weapon system, but they disabled mine before I could get a shot in.
🐉 Tale of the White Wyvern is an all new text based, high fantasy, sword and magic adventure mini-MMO that you can play with your friends! ⚔️
Playing on Easy and yes it's hard! I hate running out of missiles & getting blown up, but it's not too frustrating.
Yeah, FTL is difficult :D That said, it's one of the first Roge-likes I played that was way more fun than it was soul crushing :D
Yeah, I saw your Roundtable about it, which was awesome by the way! I didn't know what a rogue-like was and I'm glad you explained that in the video. I've actually learned a lot during my stay here at Cheerful Ghost. =)
Another roguelike that's worth checking out is Rogue Legacy. I actually forgot about this one during the RT.
It's a roguelike, sure, but unlike many (most?) roguelikes there's a bit of a narrative. Each time you die, the next time you play you're the offspring of the character that died before you. You can build upon what your ancestors have done, things they've bought, etc.
It's a little like MOBAs in the sense that every time you die you pass by a shop where you can upgrade yourself a bit. But you have to give up all your money to enter the castle, so spend it while you got it.
Interesting! I saw that Jon was playing it earlier.
Maybe I misread and he was playing Reus instead.
Oh, Travis, that looks cool! No demo though.
I was playing Reus.
It sounds great!
