One of my favorite games this year has been Faster Than Light. Or was it last year? I’ve been trying to beat it so long I can’t remember. Its medium-res 8-bit graphics are reminiscent of maybe Nintendo 64 (or some other console that came out during my Luddite poet phase), but I still dig the retro look nonetheless.
I’ve always thought it could make a great iPad game, so I was psyched to hear from this PC Gamer article they were porting it, and at the same time, bringing a whole bunch of new content to the desktop (Mac/PC) versions.
