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.

This game is basically Minecraft but underwater. You can harvest resources like seaweed, fertilizer, dirt, sand, coal, iron, copper, gold, silver, crystals (they're just called crystals), and turn them to weapons, equipment, furniture, and buildings.

Here are the differences between Minecraft and FarSky in terms of gameplay, not art:
- Your tools and equipment (including armor) never break (very handy) since you need only three primary tools
- You have three main tools: knife to cut or attack, harpoon (spear) gun, and drill (to harvest and mine all available resources, including sand)
- You don't have to arrange items to create items. You just need to have the minimum resources to create and you can create how ever much you want.
- Oxygen. Your character can only be outside for a limited time before you need to head back to a base to regain oxygen. It doesn't take long to refill.
- Bases. You can't just build a base with sand, floors, walls, etc. You need to make an item that builds a base.
- There is a plot. Which I will explain later.
- Boss battles against a mother******in' KRAKEN. If you harvest their crystal they will attack you and your base until you die. Then they leave you alone.

Here are similarities:
- Hunger, if your hunger is up 100% you will start taking damage.
- Mining resources and using those resources to make tools.
- Pretty music and visuals.
- Predators that attack more frequently at night. Never before had I had such sastifaction of killing a shark (an endangered species IRL). Nor the frustration of being attacked and killed by a shark (and pretty much anything that bites, stings, shocks, touches you even a little bit.
- Open world exploration. You can explore deeper parts of the ocean when you have the advanced equipment to go deeper.

Plot:
You are Nathan, a deep sea explorer of the coast of Austrialia, since everything underwater is out to kill you (including the jellyfish). For some reason, your submarine breaks apart into 9 pieces that scattered across the map. Your task is to get back all those parts and survive. You will have another researcher that will guide you and help you (a little bit). For the most part, you jump into the game with little to no help. Once you collect the 9 parts, you instantly rebuild your submarine and you can take it to the surface where you beat the game.

Once you beat the game, you can play sandbox mode.

What's missing:
- Bed or something to make it speed up time until morning.
- Some kind of radar to detect enemies. You can get attacked at all sides and no idea where they are coming from, how many, then you die.
- More story or tasks. I like that there is something more than surviving. Maybe look for lost treasure or something.
- More creative ability like in Minecraft to build and do whatever you want.

8/10.

It's a decent game - but with the lack of content it shouldn't cost 11 quid

Pros:
-original concept
-very relaxing
-pleasant under water scenery
-easy and solid controls
-crafting guide is straight forward

Cons:
-You'll get bored very quickly after a few hours
-When I say this game lacks content I mean you could literally finish it in under an hour
-limited crafting items
-no multiplayer

Get the game when it's on sale - no where near worth 11 pounds (or $15)

I had gotten this game and saw it was a fairly fun game through Slyfoxhound. After a bit though, I had finished and waited for the next update. Only, there was no next update. I had heard there might be more added, but since the devs now claim this is the full game, I feel ripped off. It looked like more was going to be added on with more depths that we can go to, but that never happened. Quite frankly, this is not what invested 15 bucks in and this 'finished game' is definitely not finished. Yes it's a fun game, but when you're expecting more and more updates to come out, to find out that they no longer update it, that's a bit of a ♥♥♥♥ off. There are a lot better games to invest 15 bucks in, Terraria is cheaper and has a way larger amount of content. So rather than give these devs who just dropped the game and said 'it's finished', go give your money to devs who actually still do update their games with new content, even after it's supposedly finished.

It's really sad. This game had so much promise and yet, we get the short end of the stick with a game not even worth it's price tag.

This game was an amazing experence but it suffers from lack of content. I really wish this game hadnt been abandoned. It is way to short even if it is enjoyable. I hope someone will add more content in the future
