FTL is a top-down real-time strategy game created by an indie developer. The player controls a single spacecraft and its crew, which holds critical information to be delivered to an allied fleet eight sectors away. The ship is chased by a rebel fleet and has to jump from location to location while trying to stay ahead of them, all the while recruiting new crew, fighting other ships, getting new weapons, upgrading the ship and keeping up with the fuel demand. Combat takes place in real time and if the ship is destroyed (or the crew lost) the game ends in permadeath, needing the player to restart the game completely.
