    You remmber FTL ? that space roguelike kickstarter project, i posted about a while ago, and was savagely moved to general gaming by careless mods...
    For the lazy a link to remember: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/64409699/ftl-faster-than-light

    Now you can experience its gameplay. Only problem is you need to register on onlive and its limited to 30 min .
    Manage your crew send them to repair, upgrade your ship, and explore , it sounds like really promising.

    Nah, I don't think my connection can handle it, guess I'll have to wait for a proper demo, it looks worth the wait anyway.

    What kind of fucked up shit is this, a kickstarter project using one of the shittiest and most exlcusive services (US & UK only) for their demo and then asking for money for the full version? Are you fucking kidding me?

    Bunch of spazzie little bitches on this site.

    Played it for about 15 mins, seems like a lot of fun. Onlive sucks, but it's a demo so I don't really give a fuck. It's worth funding IMHO.

    Btw, from the dev's site:

    They did this on Onlive because they were given a chance to host the demo as part of an event, it's not like this is their strategy for release or something. But please, keep whining.

    There is no way I am going to sign up for Onlive or play through Onlive's facebook page.

    well it's a mistake of another kind... harr harr.

    FTL does look pretty good. Hope they release a normal demo.

    Man, I can't even use onLive because my processor is ancient and doesn't support SSE2.

    Just saw an article about this in PC Gamer and wondered 'huh, when are they putting a demo out'. Perfect timing.

    They lost me at OnLive only. Will the full game be OnLive exclusive as well? If so let me just say WTF is this shit?

    I'm in Sweden, i could use Onlive without problems.. Gotta say i'm quite impressed by Onlive, a nice way to _very_ quickly test new games for 30 minutes. Not something i would use for serious playing though. Also like that it doesnt run in the background like Steam and many other similar services.

    Game was really nice, bought it without hesitating after trying it.

    I too haven't had any problems with launching it here in Poland. Although I must say, Onlive is crap.

    It might turn out to be a fun coffe break game if they include more RPG elements (crew stats for example, haven't seen any) and some better quests / encounters, perhaps more interaction with planets.

    Damn, the Codex made my reading comprehension decline pretty hard :( Sorry for "overlooking" the info you gave there.

    I like the concept behind this, but not enough to install yet another program i won't use.

    Hey what processor? Now I'm curious.

    Also, onlive. You've got to hand it to them, it sounded like a vaporware joke, but it keeps actually existing, for better or worse.
