Would love to do some videos of this, one it's great for the people who don't have access to see the game in action and also it's a great way to get a little more public awareness going.



Second this. I'm thinking of trying my hand at a Let's Play.

Also, how is are you handling distribution of keys? I don't recall giving kickstarter my Steam information. Are you just going to mail a code to everyone that made the proper donation level?

I attempted to send out messages to our backers via Kickstarter, but the $25 tier had too many backers and it bugged out their system. The only relevant info is that we will be emailing you the Steam keys from our devteam email account (devteam@ftlgame), so make sure that it's on your white list for receiving emails. There will be more information with that email :)

Wonderful news!

Here is hoping for a smooth beta launch. Though, otherwise, we'll be sure to let you all know about it.

Did a copy/ paste onto Kickstarter. May want to say something official though.

I put something on the game's Facebook page, if they put something on the homepage we'll be covered.

But really devs, is there going to be a NDA on this thing? I'm serious about wanting to do that let's play.

Good question. I would lean more toward "No". With the onlive demo we already know just about everything there is to know. I would think that good word of mouth would be more important at this point.
