Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!
Matt just got finished with his Post Mortem at GDC China. In it, he talked about the inspirations for FTL, the development process and our experiences with Kickstarter. I (justin) was unfortunately unable to attend, but it was apparently well received.
In other news, the folks at Board Game Geek announced FTL as their “2012 Best Indie Game” during their Golden Geek Awards. We are honored since FTL was heavily inspired by board games and we are frequent users of their site.
Also the Indie Game Magazine is running their Game of the Year 2012 players choice awards. FTL has been nominated for Best Computer Game and the Game of the Year. Be sure to follow the link and voice your own opinion! There were a lot of great indie games this year.
With the game fully out the door and a lot of the post-release event flurry over with, we’ve been back trying to finish off the last of the Kickstarter rewards. First to come will be the PDF art book, I’d say it’s about 50% done right now. Since a number of people have expressed interest in it, we’ll see if there’s a way to let others get a copy as well without alienating the original backers.
That’s all for now!
