Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

On http://www.ftlgame.com/ one can buy a DRM free version of FTL plus Steam key for $10 (the Steam-alone version costs €10 = $13 in Europe), while on gog.com it's available for $9.99 (without Steam). Is the ftlgame.com DRM free version a gog.com gift key (thus including the gog.com bonuses), or "only" a DRM free exe?

Sorry @Joe, I absent-mindedly used the German plural of bonus... –  Zommuter Sep 24 '12 at 6:30

The version sold on FTLgame.com is not a GOG key, it's a standalone download for each platform. It is the same purchase/download system used by the Humble Indie Bundles, if you have bought any of those. You get totally unrestricted downloads for each platform, and a button to fetch a Steam key, but none of the GOG.com extras.

A blog post on the official blog summarizes the different ways to buy: http://www.ftlgame.com/?p=378

Thanks! So if I want to have the full soundtrack, my best bet would be buying the game at ftlgame.com and then buying the soundtrack at Steam, or is it available separately? –  Zommuter Sep 24 '12 at 14:29
There is a link on that blog page to the sound author's site where you can buy the soundtrack separately. –  ewanm89 Sep 24 '12 at 14:40
Thanks @ewanm89. Here's said link: benprunty.bandcamp.com/album/ftl Although in this case, Steam is slightly cheaper even in Europe (€3.49 instead of $5~€3.87)... –  Zommuter Sep 24 '12 at 18:12
