Re: Uh, I think I did something wrong.

You should post that here:

Re: Intended difficulty?

Sorry, I wasn't implying you didn't know what you were doing. I guess I can't really identify with what you're saying then; I've never really run into a situation where I suddenly became powerless just due to a sector change. I thought it was more of not being able to adapt tactics to a new breed of...

Re: Intended difficulty?

No, like my final note said, victory through firepower is possible. Here's some general weapon tips I could give you: 1. Always have a missile or bomb weapon on your ship at all times. Even if it's not powered, have it available. That's what you use to take down the shields of higher-level ships, be...

Re: Intended difficulty?

I would disagree. Like you said, the game is meant to be punishing. When I was beta-testing this game, my motto was "Don't play expecting to win; play expecting to die, and make it as fun as possible." Victory is possible, but it takes a lot of practice. I've played FTL for 43 hours, throu...

Re: You took my money and gave me NOTHING

Woah, slow down! You didn't even give other people a chance to respond. I don't know how long ago you purchased the game, but these kinds of things can take time. This is the launch day of an indie game made by two people. Not everything is running perfectly smooth. Send a nice email to devteam@FTLg...

Re: My review of the game (ala Linux)

A victory on your second attempt? Props to you. It took me about 30 in beta before I beat it the first time. In terms of your thoughts: 2. The teleporter may be overpowered for the boss, but it's significantly more difficult to beat him without it. [SPOILERS] Even with the boarders taking out his we...

Re: $40 backer soundtrack/artbook

I found it. Assuming your tier works the same as mine did, you should have gotten an email from HumbleBundle. Open the link they sent you, and on the HumbleBundle page, it should have a "music" tab to the right of "choose platform." That's how I got my soundtrack.

Re: I hate the basic Rock ship.

First, this thread doesn't have much of a point. Did you really need to make a thread to complain about a ship? Second, I kinda like the Rock ship. Missiles are pretty inexpensive, and as long as you stay stocked up, it's an incredibly powerful ship. Having so many missile systems also carries you i...

Re: $40 backer soundtrack/artbook

The artbook hasn't been made yet- they focused on finishing the game first and getting it out for release. The artbook is coming soon. Not sure about the soundtrack though.

Re: 'lo devs - what gives?

Much of the entire game is built around the idea of having consequences for your actions. They were hesitant to put in the "save & quit" feature in the first place, and the roguelike atmosphere is an integral part of the game. The game isn't supposed to have an "easy" mode. I...
