Faster Than Light - The GameFaster Than Light - The Game


Well last week saw the release of FTL! For you none gamers that have not heard of FTL it is a game that is crowd funded, which basically means that the developers ask for your backing by using a third party website (in FTL’s case Kickstarter) before starting the game.

FTL made a lot more money then they expected in fact they only wanted $10,000 to create the game and ended up with $200,000 (1000%). The project only had 2 devs working night and day on getting the game finished and released. FTL is the first Kickstarter computer game to go live and it seems to be having a big uptake on Steam with it being second in the charts from the moment it was released.

FTL, as you might have guessed, is a (rogue like) space sim in which you battle other races and have randomised text events happen like your team could end up battling a rather large spider off planet while being chased by a fleet of rebels!
