March of the Living, an FTL like and inspired game, any thoughts?

Postby EpicTrojanVirus » Mon Jun 13, 2016 9:12 am

Browsing in the net finding some FTL like games, I stumbled at this site

http://www.pcgamer.com/march-of-the-living-is-ftl-but-with-zombies-out-now/

The gameplay is very much alike like situational box text and combat pause mechanic
But the combat itself is unique, even its map is FTL like
I’m not sure if FTL community will like this game or label it like FTL copycat
I can’t decides it for myself without trying the game myself
It is really worth a shot if you like FTL :D

That article used the phrase "inspiration inception".
This is as bad as watergategate.
I need to lie down.

Because FTL clearly provides inspiration for a game where you move around the battlefield and you can switch out your guns and items through the menu.
Oh and there's zombies too.
We're going to have a few years of this crap aren't we, like when First Person Shooters were called "Doom-like" games despite them being about shooting people in the face with a wide variety of guns and had little to do with demons?

I saw a game that didn't capture the combat aspect of FTL, but the event aspect was very similar. (for instance, characters have certain better options, and the likes)
