Hi! I'm sharing the first episode of an animated FTL adventure.
Covering a bit of the prologue and imagined events right before you press START.
Also, maybe an answer as to why the crew is so good at using scrap parts for currency.

Check it out on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ejxp1X2ToNg

That's brilliant. Retro-adorable and brilliant. Great power struggle tension.
I'm hooked.

I love this series! How much of the effects custom assets?

There's a ton of custom assets, especially when we're looking at the characters close up and their backgrounds. The top down view of the ships are obviously from the game, many though have animations added to them like engine fire or the recoil animation of the artemis missile launcher (which it doesn't do in game.) A lot of the game's space backgrounds are used too, although they're often extended/edited. Especially for the Kestrel, we're going to limit the top-down view as much as possible and substitute our own models of different angles.
