Style by Necessity: 'FTL: Faster Than Light', and Pixel Art as a New Cubism

Hello all, I'm a long-time fan of FTL . . . like a 250-hours-played fan of FTL (yes, I am aware that that's nothing compared to some of you :)). At any rate, I wrote an article a while ago about pixel art as a new movement in visual art (closely related to impressionism, abstract art, and cubism), a...

Coming in for my [ULTIMATE] Pacifism Run!

A while back I got the 'pacifism run' achievement . . . and then just kept the run going. I managed to make it all the way to the flagship on normal difficulty without firing at or destroying a single enemy ship . :) You can get all of the details of the run's story in this imgur album I made at the...

Re: Your top 5 favourite game soundtracks?

Mine would be 1. Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3 (so many amazing chiptune tracks in this old series; nothing can beat it for me) 2. The Legend of Zelda series (truly classic and often stuck in my head) 3. The PS2 Ratchet and Clank titles (amazing atmosphere, especially in the second game's worlds) 4. VVVVVV...

Re: Steam Soundtrack Locations

This is actually pretty good general info as well. Any time you purchase or acquire a soundtrack on Steam, it is almost always housed in the game's file directory.

Re: Poor game design

In what way is that event less fair than the random fires from a regular star? It seems to me that different ships and different builds are just going to naturally have a harder time with some events than others. Zoltans, for instance, would have no problem with the ion event. If this weren't the ca...

Re: Pyro's boarding strategy

Boarding is great, but I would advise beginning to plan your semi-boarding flagship fight around sector five. If you've invested everything into a boarding crew and your ship can't handle the various flagship abilities, your run will quickly end.

Re: Convoy

Can anyone that has played the game weigh in: what are the biggest differences between Convoy and FTL, in terms of core gameplay?

Re: Free indie games you shouldn't miss

If any of you are interested in tower defense games, you can play most of Kingdom Rush (the same one that's on Steam now) in the version that has been available for free for years. Here is the link: http://armorgames.com/play/12141/kingdom-rush . The whole primary campaign is there; there are just b...
