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.

I bought the game at the website - as much as I love Steam the devs deserve the cash more than Valve does.

I dont see how all the money could goto the devs since they also provide a steam key. Although i did buy mine from the devs for the added options.

The way I understand it, a developer pays Valve a flat fee to have their game on Steam, but they don't pay one per copy sold on their own website or other retailers. There is a fee Valve takes from each version sold via Steam though. I got this from an indie developer I'm friends with but I have no way of vetting it so take it or leave it.
