Trying to remember a game I saw mentioned months ago

I'm trying to remember the name of an indie game I saw a preview of months ago. I think it was on tablets, and it was kind of like FTL in that it had randomly generated encounters. It had enemies attack by teleporting over boarders as well as firing weapons, and you had crew members of various speci...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Enemy crew can not put out fires on their ship if you have your crew there fighting them. So use rockmen, which are immune to fire. The fire will burn up the system and the fire will spread out of control. That's true unless they have a system repair drone. They can even repair systems while you ar...

Re: Unhappy with how Zoltan work in the Weapons room

Its also not the only time the weapon order matters: it determines the order they are disabled if the room takes damage.

Re: Win without shields?

You need 4 shields and a teleporter to win this game. The latter can be compromised if you have particularly good guns (and lots of them) but I so far haven't been as lucky as to win without 4 shields and a teleport. Without shields you simply can't win since no matter how fast you act the enemy wi...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Once on the last fight of sector 7 I lost my 4 man boarding crew to an enemy FTL jump (it wasn't a ship with a 4 man teleporter, I upgraded the teleporter to level 3 and used it twice.) They were all rockmen or mantis and fully leveled in combat.

Re: Some Changes I'd Like to See

Enemy ships do have limited amounts of drone parts. Once I destroyed like 4-5 boarding drones during a fight and they stopped coming. They will also run out of missiles eventually.

Re: ftl beam weapons

Quick firing weapons are nice, but unless you have a pre-igniter, the enemy will almost always get off the first shot. With it you can often take out their weapons and finish the fight with no damage at all.

Re: Unlocking stealth b

Unless you get the stealth weapon augment, you'll have to upgrade your stealth system to get that achievement, as the lasers reduce your cloak time substantially. It's not hard to get the no hazards one just playing normally unless you get unlucky and have no choice but to go through one. Other than...
