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 INCOMPLETE! I urge you NOT to buy it, unless it is free!!! Not a single update since release, probably due to autors demise in the abys. Not a bad ideas, nice gameplay but totally unfinished and feels like Alpha version or something.

3/10

I really wish there was something in between yes and no but well, I will have to say no.
The reason is simply because of price and content, this game cost's the same price as Subnautica and yet it does not have anywhere near as much content to boot.
Subnautica is a game that I highly recommend but far sky isn't. If far sky goes on sale for a cheap price then sure go buy it but if it doesn't, get Subnautica instead.
Also think about this. Subnautica is in early access and far sky is "finished" and yet Subnautica has way more content, just let your brain process that.

EDIT: I found out that the game is actually cheaper than Subnautica now? I guess that's good?

Very relaxing, and a refreshing change to fast-paced shooters, but you get bored easily and it's annoying to have to go back for 'oxygen' every 2 minutes. Ugh.

5/10, borderline would not recommend.

Ive had a great experience with Farky. The game itself, doesn't have much replayability and can be completed in an hour if you instantly go on your voyage to find submarine parts.

I tried to play the game as much as I could before completing it so I could enjoy and 'soak' up the parts of it. I honestly can't really see myself going back to play the game again but for what is was, it offered me great fun.

There are a lot of things to improve and the price of $10 is honestly not worth it from the amount of gameplay you get.
If you plan on buying Farsky, I recommend you wait for it to go on sale. It gets down to $2.50 and that's the most I'd pay for this game.

I agree with both the good and bad reviews of this game. I like it because once you get the hang of it, it's super chill survival/adventure. I like the music/ambience/enviroment. Once I got the character past the inital startup, it was far too easy to just collect the pieces and be on my merry way... Unless you want to collect the resources for a new base (on top of the existing ones), which I didn't bother. Bought the game on sale and beat the inital survival mode in six hours; haven't messed with the sandbox mode. It's a chill game I like playing to experince the underwater enviroment, atmosphere, and do a little fishing. Hardcore survivalists probably won't appreciate the initial game play as much because it's not terribly difficult until you beat the introductory level.

That being said, there are some glitches, while not major, are annoying. I'm on a Mac, and I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it might, which is why I'm mentioning it.
The screen glitches out in between loading screens.
The game doesn't record the time I've spent in-game, and has only recorded the few minutes I've spent in menus before launching gameplay.
The menus are funny... if you're in a menu, you can't just click back to another main button, you have to exit out of the menu you're in and go back to the main one to select a different menu.

I used to play this game in both the Alpha & Beta stages. It had much potentional; howbeit when the game was Greenlit, everything had been rushed and from what I believed to be.... incompleted. Through out the time things were being added & taken away. Many of the things taken away were very valuable pieces that would've brought this game to life. The bosses, the oil resource, the leveling up, & etc were taken out. I hope Tim Speckler the developer would complete this game just as it rightfully deserves to be completed. As for comparing to Subnautica, well Subnautica had a whole crew whereas Farysky was a one man army deal, plus Farsky came out before Subnautica. Well, that's my two cents.

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.

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.

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.

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.
