This time last year, Matthew Davis and Justin Ma, the co-founders of Subset Games, were busy collecting awards and giving speeches at the Game Developers Conference. This year, they're taking things a little slower, promoting the free expansion to the game that launched them to fame: FTL: Faster Than Light.
They showed us a run-through of FTL: Advanced Edition, and also talked about the upcoming iPad release. Both the update and iPad version, they say, will release at the same time.
It's funny returning to a game like FTL that had consumed my life. I know that if I play it again, it will be the game I play, not a game I play. And you know what, I think I'm okay with one more trip through the galaxy.
