Steamships Ahoy - FTL: Faster Than Light

FTL: Faster Than Light is now available from Steam, where this space combat strategy game is being offered for 10% off over the next week. Word is:

In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It's a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions.

This "spaceship simulation roguelike-like" allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.

Lol, last version of the beta gave me a crypt.win32 virus warning in NOD32, I send it to eset and they verify a false positive.
Game is updated again on steam for release . . .
CRYPT.WIN32 virus warning again . . .
Apparently something they're doing is giving Nod32 fits . . .

Heuristic scans are inherently unreliable. If a game is on Steam, I seriously doubt it has any viruses. I'm pretty sure Valve at least runs a virus scan before uploading anything to their servers.

Yeah, I figured it was a false positive again, just find it amusing that this is the only game that's done this on steam on this computer.

As for the game itself, really digging it. For a measly 10 bucks for the kickstarter, I got a steam key, a GoG key, and a DRM free download of the windows/apple/linux versions. Now THAT is cool.
If these guys do another kickstarter, I'm going to toss more than 10 bucks their way next time.
