Abandon Ship cannot come out soon enough. It appears to be a mashup of Oregon Trail with the combat and ship managment of FTL. In the meantime, you can become an in-game crew member by joining their news letter. Your name will be added to the "names database." Upon release, when the game generates a crew member, or "other object" (possible code for sea monsters), it will choose a name at random from the database. That means Boaty McBoatface could turn up in your game -possibly as a rival sea captain, or maybe even a Kraken.

Did I mention there are Kraken?
