Beautiful piece of abandonware. Now it's just a cash grab. Word of advice to the devs (from their response to fan dissapointment leads me to believe they won't read this): Sell this IP to someone who really cares.

If this game came out in early 2000s it would have been amazing. However for 2014 it was graphically behind the times. Feels like a 1st gen alpha creation that never got completed. Once it was released there was no new development and no updates pending.

Great game if you ask me... Don't have much hours on it because I've been busy with life affairs, and other things... Give it a try, it's def. worth the exploration. The recent hate on this game is crazy... They are probably bored of life already. Enjoy and if you don't that's ok, not every game is made for your taste.

This game is yet another Minecraft clone; and unline most of those games, the devs on this game appears to have gotten a minimum viable product and stopped there. What makes me love Minecraft and many similar games is the ability of the devs (and sometimes modders) to continually create new content; but after less than an hour of play and a quick look through the wiki, nothing has happened in two years.

Save your money. Buy a game that has more going for it. I haven't played Subnautica; but at the very least it looks like that game has at least twice as much real content, and isn't just filler hiding behind a procedurally generated world.

Simply amazing for 1 night, then you will never play it again.

Its way too shallow on content with mostly useless items and very few reasons to craft things twice.

Play on hard to add fear and slow you down. Or better yet, buy something else.

This could have been a great series but has already been abandoned.

One of the best games I dont recommend, if that makes sense.

This game was great in the beginning, however, content is limited because the dev's quit on the game during early access. It's virtually an underwater version of minecraft, with rebuilding your sub as endgame. No sandbox mode, just 3 slightly different versions of a survival mode. I rarely see anyone with more than 10 hours of gameplay because really there's only about 5 in this before you have nothing left to do, with no real wish for a replay.

Personally, I suggest Subnautica for those interested in this, as it has regular updates and dev's that care.

I really want to recommend this game.

It has a really cool premise and it is pretty well realised.

The problem is that it is short as all hell. Unlike other "Minecraft-like" games out there this really does have a hard end point to it. Your objective is to collect all the pieces of your sub so that you can get back to the surface(which doesn't ,make sense but whatever VIDEO GAMES!) and once you have them all that is pretty much it.

You do unlock a sandbox mode but in playing the main game you will see everything the game has to offer. With the lack of mods and the Developer stating that they will not be adding any more content it is kinda hard to recommend.

It also has one of the worse save functions around. To save you have to quit out of your game completely. That would only be mildly annoying if the game didn't have a nasty habit of crashing to desktop. I stopped playing the game for a week after the game crashed as soon as I found the final piece of the sub. Losing me near to an hour of gameplay.

So in summation
+Cool Premise
+Nice Graphics
+Nice Atmosphere
-Very Short
-No future support
-terrible save function
-Crashes alot

Great fun for the first 2 hours...then you run out of stuff to do.

If your looking for an alternative that actually has some content and regular updates check out Subnautica.

This game is so fun to play, I love going around finding and crafing resources to expand my base, and exploring, finding abandoned bases and ship parts. I have not gone to the very deep yet, or found all submarine parts, but so far this game is an absolute blast to play. The graphics are not so great for late 2016, and I have not heard or seen anything like octopuses and squids or great white sharks and any vehicles besides two ( not including the drone ), but I still love to play this. My rating: 7/10, recommended for those who like underwater survival games.

Farsky is a great game. Although i thought it was a bit short. What i mean is I and i dont mean anyone else I like to get things done like i was already after the Debris of submarine at the start of the game and i got to it collected it and thought 'man i wonder if theres like radioactive stuff or thousands of sharks surrounding the other pieces' but no i got there thinking well the first two are probably easy. then i collected them all and i thought 'guess they were all the same oh well i get a mini sub now' but i think this game could have been or will be more if there were obsticles around the submarine Debris.

If you spawn in an area that doesn't have the right materials nearby, you're kind of screwed. It has similar mechanics to Minecraft but you can't mine or alter the environment, meaning you have to rely on what you can reach before your oxygen runs out. While I was excited to explore the ocean, my ability to do so was stopped by the limitations in the game (oxygen, lack of materials near my spawn point, getting attacked by sharks so much I could barely leave my base.) and there was no "creative mode"/"peaceful mode" version readily available unless I beat the regular version, which I gave up on.
I mean, it was pretty at first, but I couldn't continue on very long at all, and the novelty of swimming with fish and stingrays wore off pretty quickly when I couldn't continue on.
It was a cool concept but it needs work.

**Summary at the bottom**

To start off with, the game is a very basic survival game that takes place underwater, the crafting, building and resource collection may even be more basic then Vanilla minecraft, however just like vanilla minecraft the simplicity is actually enjoyable. Their is no over complication of crafting or resource collection, resources may actually be almost to easy to get(You can have top tier gear in 30-45mins). The enemies in the game come as predators such as sharks, angler fish and the almighty kraken although the kraken is not much of a threat unless you take its crystal which is not even needed to complete the adventure mode. Other than the kraken the other threats in the game are annoying especially in the early stages of starting as enemies seem to lock in on you and relentlessly attack you until your dead, that is until you get a harpoon gun which stops any enemy charge in its tracks and breaks the game, you can literally kill any creature in the game even with the weekest spears. YES EVEN THE KRAKEN! The building is very basic mainly just consisting of basic cube base sections, basic cooking stove and some basic crafting stations. Their is also a few plant boxes you can use to make yourself garden however their are only around 3-4 seeds you can plant and grow. Thier is a endless surival mode as well if thats what you into and you can even use the coins you collected in adventure mode to help give you a headstart.

The graphics are decent and I enjoy the bright color palette and it definitely has its pretty moments when it comes to its scenery and wildlife. The map is decently large with a few different depth floors taht you can reach by upgrading your gear and going deeper, however though these levels introduce new fauna and threats, they get boring quickly after you have explored a floor for a while as it starts to feel repetitive and the lack of any kind of cave systems or exploration areas do not help the fact.

The ambiant sound is pretty basic but then again what would you expect to hear underwater, the music when it comes on is nice but nothing overly special. Overall the sound is nothing great but its not bad either.

In the end the game is a very basic underwater survival game with its own charms, nice looking art, however it just doesn't do anything that makes it stand out in an overcrowded genre. Their will most likely be very little updates done to the game as its development has been considered finished for quite some time now. I am going to recommend it though as I believe the basicness of the crafting, building and resource collection is a nice entry for people new to the survival genre and even though its a little dumbed down I still had some fun with it.

It does have a lot of potential as a java game. It might take some work but if the dev starts up again with this project then it will be worth more than $10 :) (my list of things that should be added) (1)Coop sandbox (home hosted). (2)Entities that fight with each other uncommonly, (3)Animals (examples: Nautilus', and crabs), (4)Vehicle weapons, that use spears as ammo, (5) Submarine should be able to go deeper than 350m. 550m should atleast be the deepest. (6) submarine should be harder to craft (personal list of items needed: Harpoon cannon(4), glass(20), gold(30), Manganese(50), iron(100), Iron Oxygen Tank(4) ). (7) More detail on the surface(maybe even a little island or two?) (8) New weapons such as (Underwater pistols, Torpedo cannon, underwater mines, and an underwater rifle just to spice things up. (9) Whale Meat Cooked should give 80% hunger instead of 50% since sharks are much easier to kill and whales are way bigger too. (10) Maybe a bit more fps in the game? It's really laggy because of all the particles so i get 20fps. A little less lag would be awesome! That's my list for the ideas i had for the game. Please Start developing the game even more. If you do it would probably be as good as subnautica(almost lol) Like i said. This game has a LOT of potential! (Still recommended since it's really fun lol)

A good game, although a bit too short. Take it on sale, and enjoy the main mission (1-2 hours), and maybe a bit of sandboxing.
Gets quite repetitive after an hour or so, because that's all it takes to unlock the main upgrades, which makes you virtually unkillable.
A sort of sub-subnautica.

Small issue (on mac) : can't alt-tab while playing.
