In a somewhat expected development, it looks like Bugbyte (love the name), is trying to take the FTL concept to the next level.
Space Haven is in early access now, available both at steam and GOG. While the developer is claiming to be inspired by Rimworld and dwarf fortress, one cannot easily ignore the FTL influences as well.
I actually looked into this as I was deciding what my next purchase spree would involve, ultimately I decided to wait for multiple reasons as I think this game needs to stay in early access for a while before all the balance issues are finalised. As in all things, we need a good compromise between complexity and fun, I'm not sure that this has been achieved yet.
Still my fellow enthusiasts, I think many of you will find this interesting so I am including a link to their site where you can take a closer look. I may even post a preview on this at some point, but for right now I'm just going to observe it a while longer
Thought that name sounded familiar http://spacesimcentral.com/community/fps-strategy-and-tactical-scifi-games/space-haven/#post-55374 still in early access.

Sorry I didn't search first... can we merge this to that thread? The EA reviews seem positive by the way and it looks like a lot of the basics are in.
