Excellent game, really recommend it to anyone into space games or more complex RPG/Strategy games, hell i'm not even sure what genre this is.

You mean, like an unforgiving, random number generator based, rogue-like? Yeah, there's a ton of them out there. Dungeons of Dredmor being one of hundreds.

Meant the ship captain management kind of game, really loved the concept, the extreme difficulty was just a welcome bonus, just won my first game this instant, 71 games played, 1 victory, never tried Easy mode (don't really like easy modes lol)

Really enjoying this v.v

Yeah this game is awesome but awesomely hard :/

I would also like to find out if there are any similar games. I love being able to manage my crew and send them to certain parts of the ship to repair and give bonuses. Having a crew member in charge of the engine room reminds me of Star Trek haha.

Those old XCOM games seem kind of similar but i have never tried any of those

As far as I know there are no games similar to Faster Than Light in that fashion.

This is a completely different game, but it is connected through the "space rogue-like" interpretation. The difference I think is it is real time and twitchy. Kind of like a space rogue like meets privateer (from the 1990s) meets asteroids. Like a procedural generated 2d space universe with a 2d flight simulator with rogue-like sensibilities in real time. I played it off and on for a few weeks.

If you do play it watch out for the upgrade that lets you refuel in the sun. Big help! (Run out of fuel and you die a cold icy space death.)
