After my 30th or so playthrough, I finally proved my theory right that there was more to the demo for the upcoming indie game FTL than meets the eye. Yep, I defeated the actual boss at the end of sector 2 that's meant to slaughter the player.
I have caused some damage to the "impossible" class ship before, but never nearly enough to destroy it as I did in my last playthrough. If you pay attention to my missile count it was literally my final missile that accomplished the feat, talk about luck.
I was able to get through Sector 3 and into 4 before my demo time ran out. Now it makes sense why there's a timer in place! I will upload a full clip very soon which shows the full play session, including a look at Sectors 3 and 4.
For anyone wondering if cheats were used, keep in mind this play through was done through OnLive, which is a cloud based gaming service. It's impossible to edit the game as a result, and as far as I know there aren't any cheat codes for the FTL demo. This was done 100% legit, and I think I'm the first!
