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 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.

All maps are randomly generated to immerse you in an unknown world.

While it lacks the depth of Minecraft, this game is an enjoyable enough way to spend a few hours.

I love this game and I think that Farsky Interactive has made a great game, even though i have not played Sky Break yet, Sky Break is more impressive, but Farsky is the original origins and foundation of Farsky Interactive,alot of people even me contrast it to Subnautica, This 7 Days To Die and Subnuatica are some of my favorite games realeased, sadly there are updates anymore but if this game had Co-op new tools weapons ores and creatures it could live up to Subnautica, and the submarine is needing updates to depth and not losing oxygen, but Farsky Interactive please please please update Farsky and bring back the greatness of this game. FINNALLY HATERS STOP GOD DAMN HATING ON THIS GAME, Also While Writing This Review I Was Taking A ♥♥♥♥ On The Toilet:)

This game is incredibly good for anyone who wants the feeling of total isolation

the fact that you have to upgrade your mask to dive deeper is cool and the gameplay is smooth

overall it's worth the money

I do not believe there's been any updates since it's release date. It's awesome for what it is but by this point it's insanely out of date.

I would recommand Subanautica instead.

This game is fun and worth it if you get it for a bit less of a third of the market price. Then, is a thumbs up. But as it is right now and as tons of people pointed out, this is an unfinished game but sold as a full one.

I don't remember when I buy a game if it is early access or not, because when I play it, I can see it by myself. When I played FarSky and experienced things like the short story mode, unreachable bottom sea depths (which supposedly would be unlocked in an update to explore in the submarine), lack of general variety (two new plants, one new ore and one enemy per depth level), unpolished building system... All felt like a game still in progress.

As of today, I didn't play Subnautica, a very common alternative suggested here, but probably would be more developed than this one.

It's kind of bad. There is no guide as to what you have to do. It's a pure guessing game. At the start, you have to collect 9 pieces of a broken submarine and piece them back together. However, they won't tell you that. This is a badly done game and probably a lousier version of Subnautica. Since you're in a base, people can find you and rescue you.

PROS
1. Underwater Minecraft?
That's the best thing I can think of.

CONS
1. No guides
Nothing at all. You just guess.

2. Bases
There's only 1 base you can go to. If you try to use the 2nd base before the story reaches that point, you will drown inside. Makes me wonder why you even placed it on the map.

3. Growing Potatoes Underwater and Cooking with a Stove
Farmville? Oxygen must be pretty abundant underwater to cook with a stove.

4. Mediocre Graphics
This is the kind of graphics I expected in the 90s.

심해를 좋아하기도 하고 마침 할인하길래 구매해서 플레이 해봤네요. 평점이 워낙 낮길래 서브나우티카랑 비교돼서 낮은건가 생각했었는데 조금 해보니까 알겠네요. 상어가 너무너무너무 많습니다. 물고기 사냥하기 참 힘드네요. 한두마리 잡으면 득달같이 달려와서 물어대는 통에 도망치기 바빠요.. 그냥 굶고 모험하다가도 마주치고, 석탄을 캐도 마주칩니다. 그냥 주변에 깔려있는 느낌. 게임 안에 있는 아이템도 별로 없는게 제일 큰 단점이에요. 그야말로 생존만 하시면 되는 게임이었네요.

I like the deep sea and it was discount for sales, so I bought and played it. I thought this game's score is bad cuz of subnautica, but I got it. There are SO MANY sharks. It is difficult to hunt fishes. I'm so busy because they always come to bite me, whenever I kill some fished. Even though I just starve and walk around, any times. I think the big problem of this game is a lack of items.

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
