The game, FTL.
A "roguelike-like". It's SF themed which is unusual in the
Roguelike world. You start off with a spaceship with limited
weapons, crew and so on and run away from an advancing enemy
fleet attempting to collect enough equipment along the way
for a showdown with the enemy flagship.
Unlike with nethack or perhaps moreso Angband where a winning
run could last quite a while, the maximum possible duration
of a game of FTL is limited by the relentless advance of the
enemy fleet behind you.
Various "Rogue-A-Like" games:
- dungeons of dredmor,
- and FTL.
