FTL: Advanced Edition is an essential purchase at just £1.49

The Humble Store are continuing their End of Summer Sale at the moment, but this is a highlight from the current crop that needs mentioning. If you have yet to buy this game, I suggest you go rectify that hideous fault right now. Seriously. I really doubt you'll find better value for money anywhere else, as FTL is a brilliant rogue-like that is as fun and rewarding as it is punishing. Just remember one bit of advice - leave the space spiders alone. Always. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!

Be sure to check out our FTL: Faster Than Light review for more details.

FTL: Faster Than Light Review

You've had plenty of chances to grab FTL for peanuts over the last couple of years, but The Humble Bundle are currently undercutting Steam's 'deal' price for the magnificent randomly-generated space adventure at one of the lowest levels we've seen. Outside of shortlived GOG sales, that is.

You had your chance to grab FTL for peanuts over the last couple of years, but now that the magnificent randomly-generated infinitely-replayable space game has received its massive expansion, you'd expect the price to rise slightly.

Then again, £3.99 isn't exactly going to break the bank. Thanks again to jaystan @ HUKD!

FTL: Faster Than Light | £2.67 | Subset Games | PC

FTL: Faster Than Light is a true space odyssey, a trek into the wild black yonder in search of adventure. You'll die a thousand deaths and fail a thousand times, but the randomised universe and deep, addictive gameplay made Subset Games' Kickstarted project a proper modern classic.

Subset Games are so keen for you to love and enjoy their wares that they've slashed the price down to £2.67, one of the cheapest deals we've yet seen. You'll get a DRM-free copy that's also redeemable on Steam (and all your money goes straight to the devs without Valve taking their cut), so basically get on this fast and hard. UPDATE: Credit to gamestraderjames at HotUKDeals, who found this before I did.

FTL: Faster Than Light Soundtrack Edition | £4.99 | Steam | PC

If you have yet to experience the joyous highs and crushing lows of FTL, you should rectify that mistake whilst a saving can be made. Admittedly you can get just the main game for slightly cheaper by buying directly from Subset Games (which also grants a DRM-free version along with a Steam code) but if you wish to get the Soundtrack along with the game then the Steam Weekend deal is the best way to go.

As brutal as it is addictive, FTL gives players the chance to command their own space-faring vessel as they attempt to race across the galaxy. Simple in its presentation whilst being surprisingly deep, its rogue-like nature means no two playthroughs will be the same, making it great value for the price. Thanks to nickkelly @ HUKD!

It's not long after the Dealspwn Buzzard sets off on her maiden voyage, manned with a crew of three, that she encounters some difficulties. The final frontier is a dangerous place and, with a rebel horde on her tail, the Buzzard comes across a number of hostile scouting ships. One of them causes a hull breach and a savage fire in the medi bay even as the Buzzard's defence systems are taken offline. As I'm desperately trying to get more juice out off the engine to make ready for a jump to lightspeed, and Jon is feverishly trying to fix the shield generator, we are forced to flush Carl out of an airlock to save the ship from being consumed by fire. It's a tough decision that leaves us woefully under-staffed...but alive and still on course.

In FTL, though, no matter how many times you've played through the game, you never know what's around the next corner. The map indicates a distress signal coming from a nearby star system; we don't have the men to help out, but maybe, just maybe, there'll be something worth salvaging, or at least another hand on deck that we might add. Of course, in the words of Admiral Ackbar, it's a trap. The Mantis ship overruns our shields even as I dispatch Jon to the engine room to boost our chances of making a run for it. A missile attack damages the O2 systems, and I'm forced to abandon the helm to fix it before we both die. With salvation in sight, and the O2 fixed all that is required is to get back to the bridge and punch it.

Then the ring of a teleporter sounds, two soldiers beam onboard and finish me off swiftly. It's up to Jon to get the Buzzard out of here. Moments before a final blow, he makes the jump to the safety of a neighbouring system. Sadly, having proceeded to wreck the weapons systems and sensor array, the soldiers ambush him on the way to the medi bay, and his only reward for escape is a swift demise. The Buzzard is finished.
