Faster Than Light Update
Faster Than Light is a game I am very fond of. I wrote about it initially when they started their Kickstarter and then I played the demo and wrote some lengthy impressions.If you missed either of those posts here let me just say that it is a rogue-like in a space that has you focus on your crew and one versus one ship combat, the game has quite a lot of depth and focus's on random encounters throughout a large galaxy. The Kickstarter for Faster Than Light has gone absolutely through the roof; they have received infinitely more funding than their goal. They had originally set their goal to be $10,000 and the Kickstarter, which is still running, has hit $110,000. They are going to spend a bunch of that money on new ships and new content in general for the game. It's pretty amazing how successful a Kickstarter can be, especially when similar things have happened recently with several other Kickstarter projects for PC games (Wasteland 2/Double Fine Adventure).
What I came here to share was a new video from the developers that shows off eight minutes of gameplay. They show off the updated interface and new additions to the game, plus much there is a great deal of information about the game in the video, especially about gameplay. It's looking quite excellent and if you want to play the game there is still a lengthy demo available for through OnLive. If you want to check that out go to main website, or other link below, and there are instructions. Thanks for reading, enjoy.
