FTL: Faster Than Light Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter Campaign is underway for FTL: Faster Than Light, a space combat game being developed in Shanghai, China. They have already surpassed their $10,000 goal by more than 50%, so it seems this is well on its way. If you are interested in more details on this game, there's a trailer on FTL Website and a preview on PC Gamer.

Looks pretty cool, I think I'll bite!

Yeah, I'll give em $10. Nice that they're already over their goal, too - hopefully this will allow them to make it even better.


Yes. For those who were all doom and gloom about Kickstarter, here's an unknown game by an unknown dev that met their goal with 32 days to go.

In the end those who say that KS only works behind a big name or reputation are kinda wrong. The important thing is that the idea behind the fund drive is good and money will come, nothing else matters. A big name or reputation helps but not as much as a great idea for a game.

I think the doom and gloom people were more saying that not too many devs are going to rake in a million+ bucks. Ten thousand dollars is of course a far more attainable goal.

Thank you.
I believe he's singling me out when he says "doom and gloom," but I've repeatedly said that $6k-$60k is attainable. It's a wide margin, but the presentation/goals have been wide, too. Virtually anyone asking under $10k has had it (a few missed, but they typically had just words and maybe a sketch.) Several have hit around $50k. Few have gone over.

We'll see where this goes. $10k was their goal, and is rather far off from the goal set by DoubleFine and the goal required for this to really change any kind of game. This title will also likely have inflated numbers as it's the first game kickstarter getting attention post-DF, when people are still buzzing. If you look at the other video game kickstarters you have one over $100k (the Teach You To Play game), one at $70k (a zombie iOS game) and the rest between $2k and $50k. Funded, so those are the final tallies.

This game already has a demo available via OnLive, which is a bit nuts, too.
