FTL price cut down to $4.99 for today only

FTL, the indie spacefaring sim from Subset Games, is $4.99 — half the game's standard price — for a limited time on the game's official website.

The half-off deal is only available until the end of the day, so if you've hesitated to invest in FTL's punishing, roguelike-esque antics, you probably shouldn't wait much longer. Online games distributor GOG also has the game on sale for a single day for $7.49, if you feel like shelling out a bit more cash for some of GOG's bonus items, including soundtrack selections and wallpapers.

Should you decide to pick up FTL at this reduced price, make sure to read up on our survival guide to ensure that you'll last longer than ten minutes in the harsh expanse of the universe.
