About This Game

With FarSky, you take the role of Nathan who got lost in the Ocean after the crash of his submarine. You need to learn how to survive in the depths of the Ocean.

Use the environment to gather resources, build a base to refill your oxygen and manage all your items, craft equipment and weapons to explore and protect yourself in the Ocean depths, create an in-base farm or go fish hunting to feed yourself,...

Your ultimate goal is to find all the pieces of your submarine, fix it and reach the surface. You can also choose to play in Sandbox mode to enjoy the game freely with a wider map!

All maps are randomly generated to immerse you in an unknown world.

I love this game, It's basic, easy to understand and then easy to complete. Yes the story is relatively if for just go HAM on resource gathereing. Sandbox mode has been my main time playing though. I don't think this deserves sp any bad reviews just because of subnautica being the bigger, more polished game.

I bought this game years ago, and ever since then nothing new has been added. Subnautica is a lot better, just get that. The devs dropped this game pretty much. Really wish I could refund to get my $10 back that I spent so long ago.

For $10, this is a fairly fun, short little game. Don't get this expecting a large amount of content and hours of play. There is a basic tier system, interesting little things to explore, and fairly pretty graphics. Despite the occasional shark frenzy, its overall a relaxing and "chill" game. Just pop in, build up some base stuff, mine some resources, once in a while search for a sub part and maybe put on some relaxing music, and you will gain the best experience from this game

This game is fun and all, but the story isnt that good. I spent $15 on this game, to find that 3 days after i buy it the price is brought down to $10. It took me about 20 minutes to beat every aspect of the game. Sadly, its also not multiplayer, but because the samdbox mode is so fun, i reccommend this game.

It's reall well made for a first game. Visuals were so beautiful. The mechanics simple and easy to understand. My only critisism. is that there wasn't enough of the game. Most maps, modding, comunity work shop and modding would be so appriciated.

Crappy gameplay, dumb sharks and other lame horrors await you in this virtual world. Subnautica has a better story that isnt even complete. Its about an hour to complete adventure if your not a scardy cat like me. Go buy Subnautica for a completer exspireince and about 345 hours of FUN! FarSky sucks...

I didn't play Subnautica as many reviews suggested, but i think this game should get a chance.

So, FarSky is an underwater survival game. It's pretty unique in this genre and although the game is pretty short, it's a good and fun one.

The game tells the story of Nathan, who had his submarine broken in the middle of the sea.
And now he needs to survive the depth of the sea by eating, building bases and fighting dangerous creatures

You have to build bases underwater where you can refill your oxygen tank, plant/harvest seeds/food, craft weapons and develop items.

Weapons are very limited, you can have a combat knife and a harpoon gun with different types of arrows.

Your most useful item is your Drill, with it you can loot minerals and craft items and base parts with these. And these minerals can be found at different locations and their rarity depends on the type.

You can also use extractors and place wherever you like to drill minerals so fast.

Throughout the sea you will encounter many different fishes and when killed, you can cook their meat for health and reduce hunger. Your enemies here are Sharks, Swordfish, Anglerfish and other dangerous marine creatures, plus there are Krakens too guarding super rare Crystals.

As for the objective of the Adventure Mode, You need to find 9 parts spread in different direction in the deep to fix your submarine and go back to your home.

These parts locations sometimes bring challenge, as they are all placed in location with high number of hostile creatures.

And there is a Sandbox mode and Survival mode beside the Main Adventure one.

Graphics are colorful and nice, but the textures are extremely pixelated.

And by the way, the game runs on Java, if you don't know what that means or never played Minecraft, it means the game might runs slowly and needs a quite good PC to run smoothly, or turn off the graphics settings to the optimal performance.

Lastly, I recommend this game on sale, since it's very short and might gets old or boring when you craft the best items.

So get it on sale if you are interesting in Underwater Minecraft-like game!

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can't seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you

FarSky does not have purple rain
Pretty good game though

I got this game on sale and enjoyed it for a few hours. It is a fun, simple underwater survival game. Unfortunately the adventure only lasts for a few hours with little replay value. I wish the game had a little more "depth".

After reading reviews and a note from the developer saying "This game is about 10 hours long", I waited for a price that matched and bought the game.

Although the graphics are simple, I find them really nice to look at. The audio is top notch; the sounds are immersive and give you a lot of situational awareness. The gameplay and controls are fairly obvious, nothing obviously counter intuitive or difficult to understand.

The initial survival mode doesn't take too long to get through. I didn't bother with the second survival mode, but it might be an interesting way to really make the game longer. The sandbox mode isn't a typical sandbox mode, it's more like survival mode without any particular end point. At one point I rode a whale for like 8 minutes just to see where they go. They just go straight pretty much.

When I was reaching the end of my time with Far Sky, I killed a whale to see if I could. While riding it, I shot a great number of spears into its back from my spear gun. When it died, I felt a little bad. I didn't even need the meat. Whales are friends, not food. I also tried to lure a Kraken to the surface. I'm not sure when I lost it, but it followed me pretty high up. So you know, there are some things to do in the end game. I guess.

Really though, given what was said about the game and the price I got it for, it was an enjoyable experience. I can't thumb that down.

Your submarine crashes, you are stuck underwater, and you have to find the pieces and fix it to get back to the surface. Here you will find typical underwater creatures and must drill resources to make better gear/weapons. You have the choice of surviving off a bunch of plants, or going out, killing, and cooking some shark stew. This is not a great game, it is not amazing, it is good at best... but for the cost ($2.99 at the time of the review) it is not that bad. You will most likely play this for a few weeks and move on.

Personally, I tought it was ok, and I actually found it a little addicting. I feel that $2-$3 is the right price for this. It's nothing special, but can keep you having fun for a few weeks, and that's really all I was expecting from this.

If you don't mind tossing in a couple dollars($3 or less) for a decent amout of fun, this game is for you.
If you are looking for something great or unique, this game is not for you.

PS. I suggest checking out the full guide so you know what you're doing because the game doesn't really explain anything

I got the game in a bundle, played it and beat it relatively quick. It is fun for the hour or so play time that you get out of it. Once you finish it though, thats pretty much it. Haven't went back to play it since.

That being said, I recommend the game on the notion that you catch it when it is on sale for more than 50% off. I have paid less for mobile games and gotten way more play-time out of them.

Otherwise catch something that is still being developed.

As long as it's on sale for $6 at most, you'd be getting your money's worth. Yes, I would recommend Subnautica over this any day of the week, but that doesn't mean it's a bad game by any means. For what it's worth, I enjoyed every minute however short it may have been. At the very least, it was a good experience for the devs, and I was impressed.

Get it for $2.99 if you're interested in about two hours worth of mild amusement. It's basically Subnautica if Subnautica kinda sucked, had much less content, and took place in Earth's ocean instead of an alien planet's. Can't say I really recommend it, overall, but it was fun to kill a couple of hours with given the sale that's on right now.

I waited a long time to get this game, and I was really rooting for it. Sadly, even the few dollars it cost after the large sale going on right now don't really feel well spent. I'm not going to ask for a refund because I feel that the game accomplishes what it set out to do. However, even with that in mind, it doesn't go far as a really "good" game. There are many issues that apparently have been around since the beginning, making me wonder if they will ever be fixed at all. If you're looking for a great underwater game try out Subnautica instead. This one, sadly, does not seem to be improving.

This game is sloppy, lazily programmed, and very broken. I have to delve into the program files to get it to run, and even then it cant be fullscreen. I feel sorry for whoever buys this at full price. Seriously, dont bother with this and just skip to Subnautica where the devs actually care about their game.

this game seems fun at start but an hour in you feel really board because theres nothing to do and the worst part is that when you get hit by a shark once it will keep on attacking you until you die and you could finish the game in less than 4 hours i was really disapointed at this game and when you craft everything you need theres no point in doing anything else
since you only have a knife and a harpoon gun with 3 types of harpoons theres nothing to do.
SO PLEASE WATCH A VIDEO ABOUT THIS GAME BEFORE YOU BUY IT!!!!
