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 we need to complete our goals and release the complete game. We don't want to promise any exact time.”

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.

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 change when we will add more new features, the goal is to reach a fair price to everyone, 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.”

Steam Trading Cards



Hi, I've been working hard to add the Steam Trade Cards and finally, are here!!!

I created 10 Steam trade cards. Each one is the concept of one of the machines of the game, the concepts were created by Joan, one of the main ilustrator that helped me a lot to develop the game.

Each card and concept has a long story. The story of a hard proccess in order to try to achieve a game that people could enjoy. Each machine was designed after a high number of tests and changes in order to fit well in the game, with a lot of love in every detail.

I could add a lot of more cards because I have a huge number of concepts, in the game there are around 300 objects, however the concepts selected for the Steam trade cards are the core of the game, where everything begun.

I added 5 icons that I think that will fit well and 6 backgrounds that if you see all of them you can watch some kind of story or progression of the game, I mean, since the player arrive to a new planet until the Singularity gate is built.

About the badges, they have also their own story, is how we started to think about the furnace of the game. Each one was discarded for a new one until we reach the furnace that we think could be perfect for the game. The fun fact is that none of them was added to the game, we had to make changes during the 3d modelling.

If you compare the concepts and the finals 3d models, you can see that we had to add or change things in order to fit well in the game.

List of Additions:

  • Added 10 Steam trade cards.
  • Added 5 icons.
  • Added 6 backgrounds.
  • Added badges.


What Next:

I would like to continue with the things that I had to hold, like see if I can increase the bright during the night or see if I can add a bed to avoid night. I would like to finish the machine that will protect the planet of asteroids or see if is better to simple add an option button in the game, and I will continue fixing bugs and adding more little features.

I would like to see if the community can help with more languages and add it to the game or see other ways to add new languages.

Thank you for your support and patience.

Updates and Fixes #41: Improved Crafting UI part 2, Translation to Spanish.



Improved Crafting UI part 2

Hi, in this new update I totally reworked the crafting UI. I removed the Build button, simplified the filters buttons and removed the info square in the middle of the crafting menu. I made the crafting mechanic really easy to use.

Now the player only has to find an object and all the info will be shown. With only 1-2 clicks you could build any object.

I hope this can help in order to improve the experience of the player with the UI. Please share your ideas and suggestions about the UI.

Game ready to translate to any language

After a very long work, I finally finished to add the translations to the game. I added the Spanish language in order to test that all the system is working well and for now is going well.

Inside the game folder, FalrightExplorers/Content/LanguageContent there are the differents text files with the translation.

List of fixes:

  • Improved Crafting UI part 2.
  • Added Spanish language.
  • Added blur backgorund effect to main and tutorial menu.

What Next:

I would like to increase the bright during the night and add a bed to avoid night. I would like to finish the machine that will protect the planet of asteroids and I will continue fixing bugs and adding more little features.

Thank you for your support and patience.

About This Game

Farlight Explores is a 3D space-sandbox game, made for space exploration, science fiction and resource management 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 various 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.

Managing a colony: Once you build the Singularity Gate, you will be able to manage a little colony with differents buildings, where your colonists will have a variety of needs to fulfill.

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.
