Road to the IGF: Subset Games' FTL

GamaSutra - Subset Games seems to have came out of nowhere, but its success has been long coming, and hard won.

The studio was founded by a couple 2K Shanghai expatriates who left the company in order to do strike out on their own, and turn their game concepts into a reality. It's a common narrative, but what's uncommon is the success and acclaim that Justin Ma and Matthew Davis have achieved with their first Subset game, FTL: Faster Than Light, which they describe as a "spaceship simulation roguelike-like." (FTL: Faster Than Light, PC, Subset Games)
