Faster Than Light, or FTL, is a space exploration and strategy game that makes the player feel like the captain of a real starship. You can buy it now on Steam for Linux with a 50% discount.
Faster Than Light is a “spaceship simulation rogue-like,” which has practically become a genre since the game's release.
The developers have made the title available with a sizable discount before, but this is one of the biggest so far.
The Linux requirements ensure that everyone is able to play the game, even people with low-end hardware: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (fully updated), a 2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 1280x720 minimum resolution, OpenGL 2.0 Support, and 175 MB of HDD space.
