What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For our studio, this is the first stand-alone project of such level. Aside from that, we are making a game for VR, which in itself is a new and rapidly developing sector for the entire gaming industry. Therefore we'd like to travel this path together with our audience and to perform some part of the development with maximum consideration for the players’ testimonials.

Does there have to be more fierce battles or unhurried researches? The early version has presented 4 missions with different gameplay variations. It is important for us to know how the players will perceive these different approaches, which direction they will choose.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be under early access for 9-12 months. We are planning to release the full version in the first quarter of 2019.”

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

“The full version will contain a completed story of the space expedition of 2301 that includes about 15 missions. We are going to show new planets of the Wasp-21 system, new regions of the already familiar planets, new opponents, new classes for the players. There will be a lot of new content!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is a fully playable version consisting of 4 different missions that demonstrate the different sides of gameplay in FARHOME. There is a single-player mode and a cooperative mode. Each mission has its own set of opponents and its own environment: the desert, the jungles, the Ancients’ caves, and the space.”

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

“We are planning to increase the price of the game at the moment when the full version is released.”

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

“The process of development will be as open as possible. You will see the concept arts, the videos, and the development diary. The schedule of updates and detailed reports on the game’s development will be published in social networks, and we will surely consider and take account of all the comments, wishes and suggestions. Your reaction to our posts will let us adjust the process of the project’s development and to add exactly those features you’d like to see in it.

This is our first project under our own label, and we’ll be grateful to our users for their participation in its development and for the opportunity to create an impeccable product.”

BLOG #7 Expedition and military squad



Hi guys!

It’s time to tell you more about the expedition that braves the world of WASP-21.

The expedition started from Earth in 2301 and reached its target, the Wasp-21 “Ariadne” system, in two years.

The expedition personnel consists of 4200 members. The fleet has 3 main expeditionary cruisers (each carries a few transports and 3 combat spacecraft units), 3 corvettes, and the commander’s ship.



Fleet Commander: Ingvar Loddon, Cavalier of the Black and Red Star.
Chief Engineer responsible for base deployment: Max Hoe.
Chief of Scientific Department and SLF Department: Eve Sil Eddin, plenipotentiary representative of the Association.
Military Special Squad Commander: Lodge Moore.

Goal: to deploy the base and the extraction systems, to construct the teleport, to organize delivery of cyrium to the Earth.



The expedition's structure

  • The space fleet: pilots, officers, ship mechanics, the logistics service, special military squad
  • The scientific department, the Search for Life Forms department
  • The engineering department (deployment, the teleport)
  • The colonists: cyrium miners, food/supporting production employees and base technicians, the requirements department (health professionals, educators, security guards, etc.)



Each of the main cruisers can found one base with a network of extraction stations, and also several outposts as required.
The first cruiser carries the teleportation equipment, which is intended to be used for sending the extracted gas to the Earth. Thus, the first base becomes the central one.



Special military squad

The special squad includes 80 military specialists and a separate staff of technicians and health professionals. All the fighters have real combat experience, including the Black and Red operation participants (suppression of a riot at several stations of the Solar System in 2288) and the “Cursed Jinan”.
The squad’s goal is to ensure safety of the expedition. The squad has instructions in case of an emergency situation, ship breakdown, riot, clashes with aggressive fauna, and also very general and nebulous instructions in case of encounter with an alien life form.



The manning chart supposes the division of the squad into 10 platoons, which include both stormtroopers and specialists in individual areas. Specialization of individual platoons is envisaged. At the same time, each platoon can perform any tasks in hand due to their vast experience, training, and equipment of the fighters.

For now we’re keeping next week’s topic a secret, but we promise that you won’t be dissappointed :)

In the meantime, you’re always welcome to hang out on our Discord server and chat with the dev team!

BLOG #6 Planets of WASP-21



Hey guys!

This week we’re diving deep into the heart of WASP-21 and will be taking a closer look at the planets where the game takes place.



Only three planets in the system have an atmosphere. This might be a consequence of terraforming done by the Ancients.

Wasp-21-b Uno



A terrestrial-type planet with an abundance of oceans (70% of the surface), and also a tropical climate. No cyrium reserves have been found, this creates difficulties as the planet is most convenient for the main base, but the base will have nothing to extract. Rotation lasts 18 hours.
Abundant flora and fauna. Supposed to be the insectoids’ native land. It remains a question how they ended up on another planet. There is a theory of artificial interference. After the contact with them, the SLF department worked on a theory of the Ancients’ civilization using the insectoids for some purposes but more data is required for research.

Wasp-21-с Bulo



A planet with a rarefied atmosphere, nevertheless it is easy to colonize. Humans can live on it without specialized costumes, only with a breathing mask. Several cyrium deposits have been explored. Rotation lasts 28.2 hours.

The planet has some life forms, including insectoids.

Wasp-21-d Erza



A planet with a large mountainous “continent”, which occupies 60% of the territory. Scanning has demonstrated the presence of large cyrium reserves. The first clash with the Ancients takes place here. Rotation lasts 35.5 hours.

Uninhabitable objects

Wasp-21-a is a small rocky incandescent planet unfit to live on.

The asteroidal belt: theoretically there can be cyrium reserves, additional exploration is required.



Wasp-21-e is a small cold planet without an atmosphere. This planet will play a role in the storyline at some point, but we’re not revealing it just yet ;)



Next week we’ll be talking about the expedition to Wasp-21. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to check out our Discord server and ask us any questions that you might have, we’re reading every single comment!

About This Game

FARHOME is an adventure-type science fiction game for virtual reality devices with focus on cooperative walkthrough and on the use of the characters’ special abilities.
You are in for a perilous journey to the Wasp-21 Ariadne system to explore its planets and to find out what the ancient civilization's vestiges conceal.

In the early 24th century, people from the emaciated Earth are looking for a new world to live in. The players will become members of an elite special purpose squad accompanying a large space mission. The goal of the expedition is to deploy the base, to get the extraction of the most precious cyrium up and running, and also to get ready for launching the Portal that will allow the Earthians to relocate to a new place of residence. But the new world holds its own threats and challenges.

The missions are intended both for cooperative walkthrough and for fighting single-handed. Combining the strong points of the weapons and the special abilities of the squad members will make each combat unique. The gameplay of FARHOME is a combination of different styles: here you will find both the combats with a lot of shooting and the unhurried exploration of other planets’ worlds.

The game supports multiple modes of getting about (long-distance teleportation, short-range jumps, conventional movement by gliding along the surface). We’ve tried to make the locomotion system as comfortable as possible, without the motion sickness effect in the virtual reality.

FEATURES
  • Different classes of fighters in the squad, each of them is equipped with their own types of weapons and unique abilities
  • Alternative modes of shooting for all weapons
  • Diversity of the enemies’ types with unique behaviors and reactions to different types of weapons
  • Possibility of equipping the squad with regard for the specific nature of the mission and of the prospective enemies
  • Open levels on different planet types: jungles, dungeons, deserts, missions on a spacecraft and in the deep space
  • The Unreal Engine provides for an amazing level of graphics

Enjoy the game!
