FTL: Faster Than Light Discussion Thread!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
May seem a little late to post a discussion thread for this game but ever since I bought it during the steam Christmas sale I've been addicted to it. This is a thread for anyone who's interested to discuss the game and post their experiences. Feel free to post cool screenshots of gameplay and what not.

Here's an example:

There's an official thread buried in the forums somewhere. I've played the snot out of this game and beaten it 3 or 4 times. Unlocked about half of the ships and a couple extra layouts.
