For those of you that aren’t fluent in game-speak, ftw normally means “for the win.” Urban Dictionary defines it as: “An enthusiastic emphasis to the end of a comment, message, or post. Sometimes genuine, but often sarcastic.” FTW wants to help you win across whatever platform you play your games on.
I can’t tell you the number of times I see people using an app like Titanium Backup simply to make sure they don’t lose their Angry Birds or Cut the Rope game data. I was never a big fan of Angry Birds, but I really enjoyed Cut the Rope on my phone. When I got my tablet I installed it, only to realize I had to redo all of the levels because there is no way to transfer saved game data. FTW wants to change that. In order to do it however they need a lot of help from game developers.
FTW will have to be built right into games in order for it to function properly. This is probably the biggest hurdle that FTW will have to overcome. If they can’t sell their idea to the game developers then they are wasting their time even trying to get this off the ground. They are asking gamers to send an email to their favorite game makers asking them to work with FTW and integrate it into their games. They even go so far as having a nice list of emails for game makers and a sample email all ready for you to use. Just fill in a couple details and hit send. You can get more info on their website.[FTW]
