Much like zombies and tower defense games, it looks like roguelikes are here to stay as well. That said, unless I'm sorely mistaken, this may well be the first time anyone has attempted to combine spaceship simulation with the genre. (Update: Apparently, I am sorely mistaken! Check out Transcendence and Prospector for something in a similar vein.)
An IGF China 2011 finalist, Matthew Davis and Justin Ma's upcoming FTL looks especially intriguing for something in its pre-alpha state. Unfortunately, that teaser trailer also appears to be the most they're currently willing to divulge about the game. Nonetheless, they'll be present on the show floor in GDC China so if you're lucky enough to check it out there, feel free to send an e-mail and tell me what you thought of it.
