About the 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.

You can grow potatoes. 10/10

Okay, jokes aside, this game is pretty great. Been following/covering it since it was in alpha, and let me tell you, it's come a long way. I haven't checked out too much of the release version yet, but I'm having a lot of fun so far. It's pretty impressive that it was all done by one guy.

The base difficulty is pretty reasonable. Weapons take a while to get and killing fish for food draws blood, which means you'll have sharks coming around and being jerks. Growing potatoes also takes a reasonably long time as well.

If you're into hanging around underwater, building houses and riding around with an underwater scooter, you should get this game.

Putting this at the bottom so it doesn't get in the way of the review itself. Just a video of me messing around in the game, if you're into that kind of thing. http://youtu.be/EROAGyCMsd0

This trully was a nice little game to add to my Library. Its underwater enviroments are amazing,its creatures interesting and a serious threat to the Player,Gameplay never gets old.The Story is okay,be its not very large.Guy gets his sub-marine destroyed and now must fix it.Thats it. Sure its $15 Price is a little too much,Its only about 6 hours long,but im sure there will be more feutures in the near future. Either way i cant wait to see what this developer is currently working on for Steam.

Admiring the beautiful fauna of the sea and listening to the relaxing music, FarSky will take you on an immersive journey like no other. While one might compare this game to "Minecraft underwater", the only thing that is common would be the building (and even that system is far unique than MC's) and "mining ores". The thrill of trying to survive in a predatory world is thrilling, to say the least.

This is not YOUR TERRITORY. You are the hunted, and you must adapt to survive. Will you rebuild your crashed submarine and leave this underwater hell? Or will you live in this land, this... Rapture. I was skeptical purchasing this at $13, but I can say I've got my money's worth already.

Lastly, the developer has abandoned ship to work on other projects, so yes there isn't going to be multiplayer or more updates. Don't let that sway you though, pick it up on sale and still have a good time, because you'll enjoy the unique experience!

I rate it 4.5/5 deg-degs

This game does not feel like a finished product to me. please read below for why I think so.

This is a pretty good game, however there are quite a few flaws that become evident late into the game as well as after the story mode.
I would still maybe recomend this came to some friends, but not without going through the issues with them.

-I completed the game in both adventure mode and the more challenging "survivor" mode without dying once, it was way too easy. Maybe add a difficulty setting other than spawn control in only the sandbox mode?
-I never used late game equiptment at all, it's not even needed to dive to the deepest part of the ocean and win the game.
-Once you get to the deeper parts of the ocean, the noise starts getting all buggy and you can't hear enemies anymore as well as other sounds that should be there.
-There is virtually no late game. The bottom of the ocean is actually easier to survive in than the shallow area you start in. the late game boss enemies don't even attack until provoked.
-While there are some cool things you can do with building, a small two room base will do you just as good as a massive fancy base.
**and finally my biggest problem with this game**
-During adventure mode you earn money to use in the sand box mode for free play. Okay, awesome. However you can only use this money ONCE, for ONE sand box game! After completing the adventure mode and Survival mode with gathering as much money as possible I started a sand box game with everything I wanted :) And then I tried starting another sandbox game, with no money to actually start with anything... So to play sand box and actually have enough money to start with the fun items you have to spend hours in the regular game -_- each time...

So....
There are a lot of things I find annoying with the game play. But you know what? I still enjoyed my time playing this game. It just doesn't feel finished. It feels like this game is still in production.
