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.

It was fun for a couple hours. Buy Subnautica instead.

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 liked this game, until I finished it and realized I had done absolutely everything the game had to offer. I would like to recommend it, but it feels unfinished and lacking depth.

I am aware that it's finished as much as it was intended to be, but the game itself makes you want to have more of it when you reach the end. I did enjoy playing it, but I still felt disappointed at the end, because it could have been so much more than this. And I don't want to recommend a game that will probably disappoint you eventually.

At first, FarSky seems like an excellent, under-water alternative to minecraft. If you enjoy games like that, then you'll definitely find enjoyment in the first few hours of FarSky.

However, after discovering how the game works you realize: that's pretty much it. There's a very limited selection to what you can craft and how you can expand your base. At this point, FarSky feels more like a tech demo with great potential.

Not bad for what it is.

I saw it on sale so I figured, "Why not?"

Took me about 3.5 hours to beat the adventure mode. Never died.

It's good for someone's first shot at making a large game.

It's also good for a beginner's survival game.

I went in not expecting much for the $2 and some change price tag. I was thoroughly impressed. While it's not the deepest survival game I've ever played, it kept my attention long enough to assemble the sub, explore in it a bit, murder ever Kraken I came across and leave.

By time I was done, the sea was Kraken lackin'.

Graphics 8/10 - Everything looks pretty. I especially like the shark models.
Gameplay 7/10 - I got what I expected. I explored a bit of ocean, gathered some materials to upgrade my equipment, kill some stuff trying to eat me, then left.
Sound 9/10 - I learned real quickly what a shark/barracuda/Kraken sounds like when it's headed my way. I also learned to fear it. Good stuff. The heavy breathing when you're almost out of oxygen makes you a bit nervous too, especially when you're not entirely sure you'll make it back to the base in time.

Overall 8/10 for what it is.
