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.

"FarSky" is one of my new favorite survival games. It's not as in-depth as some other survival games on the market, but still offers base building, base defense, mining, crafting, a hunger system, and combat. Here, you take on the role of Nathan who crashed his submarine and must find his ship parts in order to escape (sort of like "Sir, You Are Being Hunted"). There's a sandbox available and the gold you find in the campaign can be spent equipping your character from the onset. The ambience is a bit cartoony like "The Long Dark", but still remains beautiful to look at. Overall, definately worth $15.00.

I Only got one thing to say, i fricking love underwater games, i just love them.

Now let's be serious, In my point of side, is one of the best games i ever saw in my entire life, im not even joking, you should be getting this game right away.

Even tho, it hurts my heart, that i have to say.. that this game is.. 'copletelly' finished.. There's not gonna be an update for FarSky.. It really hurts me, seeing this game as it is, and not even update it, you can go up to -350 underwater! But you helmet breaks if you descend more than that, the final 'boss' is AWESOME, I Hope at some poinnt of this game, it makes an update, a really big one, i have hopes in this game.

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.

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

I've only have nearly 17 hours of playtime in this game and I already feel like I've done nearly everything there is to do. This game is infectiously addicting, though a bit lacking. Make no mistake I love this game, though currently it feels like a beta. I thought it was an early access game untill I came back to this page. This game has potential to grow. There's no doubt about that. Deeper depths are always a possiblity, new ores, new building materials, mounted/mountable defences, scarier creatures, new objectives and missions, just to name a few ways this game can grow.
This game is certainly worth the price, though room to grow is there.

The adventure part of the game was completed relatively quickly, within a couple hours, but I really want to spend more time in this world. I really look forward to playing in the Sandbox and Survival mode, even though the deep ocean scares me more than anything ever.

This time 'round, we're playing FarSky!

Which is a daft title, given that you're underwater. Well, at least the sky's far away, we s'ppose.

A survival game, you play as a submariner whose submarine falls apart around him. You then have to survive on the bottom of the ocean by... squatting in a neat underwater house with infinite air.

The game's quite fun, and we recommend it!

Enjoy!

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

Awesome game. I reccomend this game to anyone who loves sandbox and survival games. I don't see a random game about fishing. I see a game about survival at the bottom of the ocean, where you see beautiful creatures swimming around you and while you are not being attacked, it brings a relaxing feeling of just being in the water and watching creatures swim around living their lives.

Also, you can grow potatoes. 9/10

The only postive I can think about this game is the fact it is underwater and that is awesome. But unfortunately this game is really very weak. It takes only about 3 hours, give or take, to finish it by getting the submarine and returning to the surface and there is not much meat on it bones. You can easily gather enough resource to craft a rediculous amount of high tier object which only means you need and insanly large storage facility to store them as there is not enough object variety to craft that would warrent being able to deplete your large resource stockpile. Even the high tier items are limited to being about maybe 10 things in total. The map, while randomly generated is actually small it takes about a minute or so just to cross from one end to the other, even going to the lowest depth possible isn't very rewarding as it is pretty much like the top level, lots of light with lots of undersea plants. If your looking for a game that is good for killing small amounts of time then this game might be for you if your willing to pay $15 for what little you get.

I would get a refund if I knew it were possible.

Absolutely great the first playthrough, but after that there isn't any new content or updates to keep you playing. Just imagine Minecraft with two biomes, underwater, finite land to explore, and 1/16th of the items.

It is quite good. The only problem I have is that the game crashes about 1 or 2 minutes after I launch it.

I give this game a 6 out of 10. I has great potential, but it never quite became the awesome game it should have been.

Crafting...
The crafting is pretty week. You access the crafting table and choose the item you want, if you have the correct ingrediants in your inventory, the item is instantly made.

None of the items are complicated at all. Use 20 copper ore, 2 gold, and POOF, you have an underwater scooter. There is no refining of minerals, there is no crafting of smaller components to later build a more complicated item.

Also if you want to build something , but don't have the ingrediants it will show you tiny little icons of what you need, but it doesn't say what those icons are. For example I needed to make a bandage to stop my bleeding, and it needed seaweed, but the icon didn't look like seaweed and I could find anything that I was harvesting that had an icon that looked like the one shown.

One last thing about the crafting. The ore to mine is everywhere. You are litterly surrounded by it. There is more ore around you then just regular stone.

Graphics...
The game looks very beautiful lots of underwater eye candy, The best part of the game is the look and feel of your surroundings.

Sound...
Sound isn't too bad, but when night comes you get some fairly bad music start to play. seems like they were trying to copy minecraft here, but where mine craft music is peaceful sounding, this music doesn't give me that feeling.

The combat is also pretty week. The fish AI is basically always the same from every fish...charge at you at high speed straight on.

This game could have been so much better, but it feels like a game that is still in Alpha, but it is a finished game.

this game is a one of a kind game, of being a undersea servival but its a short one so i do recamend it but keep in mind that its made by one guy in one year and that pretty inpressive given what there is in this.

the time you would get out of this would be around 10 hours or so not long but still fun
