A few thoughts

Got to admit, I am addicted to FTL. Got 14 wins from 106 games (95% on normal) and would like to share a couple of thoughts about the game : 1.

FTL manages to give that great feeling of a well planned and built game. Without flashy, SW/HW amplified super graphics, the plot and rich gameplay are addicting a...
