Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is in state that need feedback of the community. We think that in the current state of the game, it can bring hours of fun to the players so we think that now is the moment to release it. It is very important to say that buying this game you are supporting the development and improvement of the game. We really appreciate all your support and we will do our best.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to know the exact how long, but we estimate would be one and half or two years to complete our goals and release the complete game. We don't want to promise any time earlier.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final game will contain first a full story, after the story the player could continue playing, more minerals, more machines, new planets and localizations to explore, more building pieces in order to build a great spaceship and space stations.

We have more features in mind (you can imagine a few ones that are very common in this kind of game) but we prefer not to promise anything that maybe we need more time than expected to implement.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game contains all the features that you can see in the description section of the game, plus three planets, three basic minerals, several machines, several spaceship parts, all the machines that the player needs for surviving (food, water, oxygen) and of course you can save your progress.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will be increased when we will add more new features, the goal is to reach a fair price to everyone, because our priority is that players who support the game in the initial state pay less than in a near final state, as we said, we think that is important to find a fair price for the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Watching how the players are building their bases, we can see if we need to balance something or add more threats or resources. of course we will hear all the suggestion, feedback and bug report from our gamers community. We are very active and we answer always all the possible questions about the game.”

Updates and Fixes #31: Oxygen Bottle Generator.

Updates and Fixes #31: Oxygen Bottle Generator.

In this new updated I added a few things and fixed some minor bugs.

I added the Oxygen Bottle Generator, this machines creates oxygen bottles, so the players doesn't have to return to the oxygen dispenser all the time. The oxygen bottle generator only requires power and oxygen to work. In order to build it, the player needs iron plates and other resources, so it is not possible to build it at the beginning of the game unless you are playing in peaceful or survival mode.

I added too the possibility to bind arrows keys, that are really useful to the players that use arrow keys in order to move the character.

I finally achieved to add a few new screen resolutions,I added, 1280x1024, 2160x1080 and 3840x2160.

I'm reviewing all the texts of the game and I updated the texts related to the tutorial, the popup tutorial texts and the main menu tutorial texts has been updated too.

A bug related to the plastic factory has been reported. The bug was that the plastic factory could produce plastic without petrochemicals. After reviewing the code, I could fix it.

List of fixes:
  • Added Oxygen Bottle Generator.
  • Added key binding arrows.
  • Added screen resolution 1280x1024.
  • Added screen resolution 2160x1080.
  • Added screen resolution 3840x2160.
  • Updated Tutorial texts.
  • Fixed Bug in the plastic Factory.

What Next:

The idea is to continue fixing bugs, polish and improve the game.

Thank you for your support and patience.

Updates and Fixes #30: Stations and Solar Panel with Battery

Updates and Fixes #30: Stations and Solar Panel with Battery:

In this new update I fixed a lot of important things and I added to the game something that I think is important in order to make the game more friendly for new players, The Stations.

Stations are pre made structures with all the necessary objects that a machine requires to work. For example, the Water Pump Station has a water pump, a solar panel, wires connected, and some pipes. The Ore Station has the Ore Extractor, Solar Panel, a Robotic arm, some conveyor belts and a Chest... The player only has to put the water station over a water spot or the ore station over a mineral vein and all the objects will appear and the machine will start to work. With this method the player can build a base really quickly and learn how everything works.

I think with the stations, the player can learn how the machines and the robotic arms and other objects works together, only watching the stations, and for example the player can use the furnace station, remove the furnace and put other machine that uses the same objects to work.

I added 9 stations, that I think will help the player to understand how each main machine works and I also added a colony station that will show how to setup a initial colony with all the necessary buildings.

I have an idea in my mind that the player can beat the game using only stations, so the player that don't like put pipes or wires can only focus in create stations that trasnform objects in other objects. I need the feedback of the community to know if that is a good idea in order to develop more this idea.

I added too a Solar Panel with Battery. This new machine can work during the night because it has a battery integrated. This battery can work during heavy storms.

What Next:

I will continue fixing bugs and polishing the game, I think the game has a lot of content so the priority is to focus on make it friendly and fix bugs.

List of new content:

  • Added Water Pump Station.
  • Added Oxygen Station.
  • Added Food Station.
  • Added Furnace Station.
  • Added Ore Extractor Station.
  • Added Hydraulic Press Station.
  • Added Bifurcation Station.
  • Added Steel Factory Station.
  • Added Solar Generator With Battery.
  • Added Initial Colony Base.
  • Added music for the battle deployment.
  • Added music when the battle begins.
  • Added music when player wins the battle.
  • Added music when the player loses the battle.
  • Added environment sound for the battle.
  • Added different weapon sounds for the battle.
  • Added info in ship controller machine.
  • Added info in Map module machine.
  • Added message in the galaxy map when the spaceship has not enough fuel.
  • Fixed selecting issue in Robotic Arm, Solar Generator and Turret.
  • Fixed bug of the spaceship can't fill fuel.
  • Fixed bug with the ship controller machine when the spaceship is destroyed or removed.

About This Game

Farlight Explores is a 3D space-sandbox game, made for space exploration, science fiction, resource management and action fans. In this game you can build your base or spaceship, explore the galaxy, extract unique ores in each planet or asteroids, craft new products, transport goods from one planet to another and more...

Farlight Explorers is focused and supported on three pillars:

Auxiliary systems: Design and maintenance of all the elements that your base or spaceship need to be operative (water, food, oxygen, energy).

Automatization: Manage and automate the extraction of ores and production of elements that are essential to grow your base.

Transport of goods: Build spaceships in order to transport the goods is vital in order to produce all the possible elements of the game because each planet will have unique characteristics.

When you start the game you choose a planet to start from the hundreds out there in the galaxy map. Once on the planet you have to extract resources to begin building a base that provides you with the items to survive like food and oxygen. If the base is secure, you can start building your spaceship to go to other planets to extract unique resources that you need to develop new technologies, or you can also use your spaceship to explore.
