Update #12

FTL Update: It's almost September!

Hello backers!

Big news: We've finally set a release date. We plan to launch the completed game on September 14th. That's only a little over 2 weeks away!

Second, FTL will also be available on GOG.com! They will be selling a DRM free version that will include some bonus materials (a few music tracks / some development art). Also, they have kindly offered to give keys to everyone who backed the game at the $10 level and up! That means everyone who gets the game through the Kickstarter will also get the bonus content offered through GOG.com. This is in addition to the Steam key everyone will also receive!

EDIT: The bonus materials will not be the full artbook & soundtrack given to the various backer levels.

In other news, FTL has been nominated as one of the finalists for IndieCade!  Head over to LA Oct 4th-7th for lots of game related fun.  We will also be showcased in the Fantastic Fest's Arcade Sept 20th-23rd in Austin where FTL will be featured with its own arcade cabinet.

And finally, our official trailer is now live! Watch it! Send it to your friends! Watch it again! Check it out below, or at: https://vimeo.com/47066972
