Faster Than Light, which is loosely based on Red November (a board game in which gnomes are in a sinking submarine) in terms of gameplay?

No, there are no gnomes in this game. All your characters are humans.

Oh, you want the answer?

Well believe it or not, the answer is...

Escape from Planet Lovecraft. Yes, I shamelessly plugged my own game.
Do you guys remember that board game for college I made with my team last semester called Escape the Hyacintho Sol? Well, for our final, we were originally going to adapt that game into an RPG in Game Maker, but unfortunately the instructional video for RPGs was missing, so we couldn't do that.

So instead, we decided to make a sequel to our board game, making it a Space Shooter called Escape from Planet Lovecraft. The plot according to the manual was- after defeating the final boss (Great Captain Cthulhu) aboard the Hyacintho Sol, with the last of his strength, Great Captain Cthulhu slams his hand on the self destruct button attempting to take you down with him!

You escape in the nick of time an escape pod and blast off just as the ship is exploding! Sighing in relief at your escape, you soon crash on a planet. You look in horror as you realize that this isn't Earth! In fact, your pod crashed on the worst possible planet ever- Planet Lovecraft. Great Captain Cthulhu was only one member of this alien race.

After sneaking around a bit, you and your companions manage to steal a small ship and blast off that rock! Unfortunately, the aliens notice this and chase after you with their army of UFOs and boss ships as you race to not get back home but also to save it from the alien threat!

Personally- and I know this might seem biased -I think our final game was the best out of all of them.

Is there a place we can see said game? XD

It certainly sounds interesting, though I don't recall your original thread on the board game. That might have been during my forum hiatus.
