Ever wanted to explore the depths of the oceans? Well here is your chance, FarSky is coming to Desura!

About

Farsky is a survival, adventure and exploration game made by Farsky Interactive.

After the crash of your submarine, you are left alone in the depths of the ocean. Take advantage of the day to extract resources, go fishing and explore, but be careful of the predators when the night falls! Your underwater base is your only safe place! It is also the only place where you can refill your oxygen. Use your resources to craft items, grow your own food, extend your base or create new ones! The deeper you get, the more dangerous it will get! Meet new creatures and new fish species on your way down.

FarSky is also on Steam GreenLight so you can give them the good old thumbs up here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=226898710

Features

Game modes

The game can be played in 3 different modes:

  • Adventurer: This is the standard mode. Start a new game in a randomly generated world. Your goal is to find all the pieces of your submarine to fix it back and make your way through the surface.
  • Survivor: This is the exact same mode as Adventurer, but enemies are stronger, you have no indication where submarine pieces are and you only get one life!
  • Sandbox: No goal here. The map generation algorithm is different, making the world more scrambled and wider than other modes. You can use the submarine soon, almost since the beginning.

 

Map generation

Each new game creates a new map randomly generated. You can interact with almost all elements. Cut seaweeds to make bandages, extract sand to make glass and create glass walls for your base, put an extractor on rocks to get iron and make weapons,…
Some resources are rare, such as gold or crystal. These rare resources can be used to create more useful items such as equipment, harpoon cannons, or for instance a new base!

Development

The game is currently in Beta.
Two levels are available, and are regularly updated to add resources, fish, enemies and vegetation. New items will be regularly added to have more furniture for the base, weapons and equipment. A new level, the abyssal one, made of a complete new biome will be added soon.
The sandbox mode should be available soon.

    A fun game, but it should be noted that (as of yesterday, anyway) the Linux client is not as up to date as the Windows or Mac clients are, and doesn’t yet include all the features listed in the patch notes.

    Of course, since its a Java game, playing the Windows client in Linux is a snap, and works flawlessly.
