It's been 4.99 before, but this is the cheapest price for it yet. You get a DRM free version, and it also includes a Steam Key.

Frankly, it is worth $9.99 easily.

EDIT: Sale is over, but it'll surely get cheap again.

Added end time for sale

To all who have not bought this, go do so. I picked it up for $5 after Cheapy's talk about it. And, I wish I could play more.

Super fun! Easy to play, hard to master.

As much as I want to dive into this, I feel like it may be in a future indie budle. blah blah blah support developers, ok... but I'll wait. This is a great price, but I've got to keep my CAG badge somehow!

I love GOG, but the developer makes more money if you buy it directly from them and there's no extra benefit to you for buying it from GOG (that I know of). So, help an indie out and buy direct.

Yup this is definitely worth more then the asking price, I hope more future kickstarter games turn out like this.

The FTL dev uses Humble Bundle for sales on its site, though. I don't think we can know which way sends more money to the dev. But it does make more sense to buy from ftlgame.com, since you get both DRM-free downloads and a Steam key.

do you guys think this will work on a super old Intel GMA 945?

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Humble takes five percent; I'm sure GoG's terms are reasonable but they probably can't beat that.

Interesting. I stand corrected.

Another game to add to my long list of backlog games? Why not.

I just got a new laptop and as much as I said I'd stay away from computer games, I might just have to gove this a shot...

So cheap that I had to cave and buy it from the developer even though I rarely play PC games. Looks like a great game!

I think we will let you keep your CAG badge if you buy this for $4. Probably. I can't back that up with paperwork.

I know this will show up in an indie bundle now that I finally bought it.

Worth every penny though. They totally earned it.

Glad I checked my STEAM account. Already bought this when it was $4.99 but I have not played it. The problem with being a casual PC gamer is I never remember what I have.

I think it will eventually hit a HIB, but probably only as a BTA game. Still... it's worth every penny, and then some. Here's hoping they work on an expansion.

Decided against it, held out for about 4 hours, then logged back in and bought it. Dammit.

Went ahead and bought it. Unfortunately it doesn't want to run on my laptop, so I'll have to borrow the family PC:(

Another game I buy.. joining the backlog. Though I may at least play it for an hour before it really joins it.

Lets look at the bright side guys, even if this does end up in an indie bundle, it'll likely be a BTA game and not a $1 game so you'd still have to pay this much :P
