honest question here, but why do people like faster than light? the combat is boring and you spend so much time just looking at bar fillings ups, grinding is rewarded rather than punished, a lot of event are heavily stacked against the player (small chance of success for a small reward vs high chance of losing an important member) and unlike a proper roguelike there is a very small pool of items and random stuff

is it because it let you roleplay your star trek fantasies?

For an indie title, Age of Wonders III is meaty and pretty to look at. The early game in Civ where you explore and battle barbarians is one of my favourite parts of that kind of game: it's bigger in AoW3 and persists for longer as you conquer things due to all the independent forces populating the map.

Michiel van den Bos does the soundtrack for it too.

It feels really satisfying after going through so much bullshit, and seeing the boss finally blow up using what you had. Although I only won once, barely destroying it with my last missile, and don't feel like replaying it for the other ships (especially Crystal).

Anyway, Astrebreed is pretty amazing for its price, a shmup, but even then, hacking through enemies and bullets with a sword-wielding mech felt satisfying. From the same group, Fairy Bloom Fresia is all about being a cute fairy going Fist of the North Star on stuff.

One Way Heroics is a good roguelike. Has some "casual" mechanics (item vault for one), although you can just ignore that and beat it with what you start with.

AoW3 was released in March of this year. That doesn't make it old by a stretch, not unless you want to discard nearly every other example in this thread (for no good reason because age has nothing to do with 'indie' status either). The expansion pack is even more recent.

I felt I got my money's worth with Strike Suit Zero, even with the non-Strike-Suit missions, and more-so with Infinity, the arcade-game-format spinoff which was nothing but Strike Suit fighting.

Minecraft has two problems, both lack of content and updates that ruin the game.

Minecraft is a bad game for its genre, but it's the best game of its genre. It's really easy to make a game that makes Minecraft look like a 5/10 game. It's easy to think it deserves an 8/10, but that's just because all other games suck not because it's good.

Nobody really bothers, though. He pulled that promise very early (when he had less than 15,000 customers).
>>
>>266375564
1 million people bought Minecraft in Alpha, all those people were promised Minecraft for free. So although that specific promise may only include 15000 people, he also made an extended promise that includes 1 million people. I and many others bought Minecraft under promise of getting every future version for free which he has not delivered on.
