@JcsMuffin: weird indeed. I would only suggest to check if Java is up to date ( and the graphics card too. It is actually the first time I got this report. Sorry for that, tell me if the updates did not fix this.
2  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-05-08 07:42:12
Thank you all for your nice comments! I was really busy lately, I did not see your comments before, sorry for that.. The game was doing well on Steam. I now need to think about how things will evolve. I'm still handling the FarSky support for the moment, but there is a lot of chance that I start a new project soon Cheesy
3  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-04-26 00:21:08
Finally, the full release is out! And available on STEAM!!
As I said previously, there are a lot of new features/updates/fixes.

I hope the game will have enough sales so I can continue game development.
I'll keep you inform of course of the plan for FarSky. There may be some updates to come, can't say much about it yet.

@Gjallar : thanks, indeed Steam releases get press attention. Glad to see FarSky in PCgamesN !
@Damocles: I did not handle the music, this is done by a musician. On my opinion, he really did a great job, I really enjoy its work. By the way, its high quality final tracks of FarSky are available on its bandcamp Wink

So I officially confirm that the game will be released on Steam on Friday, April 25!  Grin
The launch trailer is set and ready!

A lot has been added to the game for the final release. I listed all the defaults of the game and fixed them. I improved the building system to make it more intuitive, improved the global balance difficulty (mainly with the Kraken), added "steps" to cliffs so you don't need anymore the underwater scooter to go exploring, more variety in the world, all the workshop tables have been redesigned, more sea life has been brought (now there are tunas, dolphins, the great hammerhead and the great white shark). Many new features including finding and fixing droids so they can help you out by carrying items and protecting you. Also there are now gold chests you can find in the world. They give you coins you can use in Sandbox mode to buy equipment before launching a new game. Graphics have been improved, including the caustics effect I talked about before.

I hope you'll enjoy this trailer, and that it makes you want to know more about the game  Smiley

If you own the game, you still have 2 days to email me and become a pre-release tester for FarSky !  Wink
6  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-04-04 14:46:52
Hey everyone!
As the game will be released on Steam in 3 weeks, I'm making a pre-release test group to find the last bugs and issues.
If you already bought the game and want to be part of the group, email me at You'll get a copy of the final release game before everyone, but with some bugs! haha!  Wink
Hope to hear from you! Cheers!
7  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-03-27 15:56:41
Just added caustics. It will be available within the final release, on April 25  Wink

Thank you!
I'm pretty sure I will never work on Overbind again. After FarSky, I already have a new idea to develop, which is completely original. Yet for the moment I'm still enjoying FarSky development and there is still more to do Cheesy (plus support)
9  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-03-21 10:00:37
Yeeaaaah!! Great!! Featured again!! Grin
Thank you all for your amazing support. I'm really glad the game made it through Steam. The game got 11 500 yes votes in less than a month, bringing it to the #6 rank.
When I made my first 3d game Overbind, I never thought one day I would publish a game on Steam. But I wanted to make my first real big game.
I think what made the Greenlight campaign a success is that the game already had a community since the game is playable since September 2013. Plus I wanted to make the Alpha free so that anyone could give me feedbacks. And I totally recommand it to any developer to do so since it really helped in many decisions! Cheesy

Official release date has been set for April 25.
I just released Beta v4.0 today, with abandoned bases, sandbox mode, whales, more farming.. Enjoy  Wink

10  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-03-07 18:00:30
You just need to re-download the game and the Installer will re-install it for you.  Smiley
11  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-03-07 15:40:07
New update: FarSky Beta v3.2Grin

It is mainly about the new level, the deep-sea one! I also added lamps that you can put anywhere outside (actually it was an idea posted on a Steam Greenlight discussion Cheesy ). There are also many fixes and small updates that make the game easier to handle (so more fun to play).

Also the game is now #37 (just checked) on Steam Greenlight! So this is really a good news, don't hesitate to vote if you did not already:

Have fun!

@Kefwar: thanks!!  Grin
For the harpoon gun and the extractor, you can't remove them yet but it's on TODO list, should be for anytime soon  Wink
13  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-03-03 08:08:02
great! thank you all  Cheesy
14  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-28 10:40:59

@Gibbo3771: I'm actually already working on this as a full time job. I'm launching the game next week on Desura, and I'll put it on other platforms afterwards.

The game is getting more and more visiblity! The feedback is incredible! Here are some reviews: (french):
16  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-21 08:37:39
I just released FarSky Beta v3.1 today!

This update really focuses on the second level to bring more content, such as glowing seaweeds, the anglerfish and the frilled shark.
There are also some changes with iron, you need to find spots to get more of it. Also added copper, and new types of spear.

The Greenlight campaign is still doing great with 3000 yes votes now thanks to your support Smiley

@xXCoderDevinXx: Indeed, as soon as shaders are used in a game, it removes some old laptops compatibility. Sorry for that, I wish it could run on every machine..
17  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-19 09:30:14
Already 1000 Yes Votes in 18 hours on Steam Greenlight!
Thank you all, this is an awesome start, really!
It is not over, so please don't forget to share and spread the word.
Again, a big thanks!  Grin
18  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-18 15:30:20
Hey everyone!

The game has been doing great so far, better than I expected! But now it is time to push things a bit further...
So here it comes, the game is now on Steam Greenlight!!  Grin

Please have a look at the Steam Greenlight page, and feel free to vote "yes" and share: Steam Greenlight Link

Meanwhile I'm working on the second level for the next update. I'm adding the anglerfish, the frilled shark, glowing seaweeds,....

Hope you'll enjoy it! Please don't forget to vote!  Wink

@stonewalltony: at first the launcher was working as an updater, but some people had trouble with that and could not update the game correctly, plus now that the game can be bought the build process works through Humble Bundle, making things more complcated for auto-updates. So instead the launcher is an installer (only one click needed to install the version built with the launcher) and gives news about updates. To update the Beta, you just need to redownload the game with the link used the first time (more info on the FAQ of the website).
@xXCoderDevinXx & @kingroka123: Indeed the game was free during alpha, but as I made some important fixes since then I do not support it anymore. Yet it is still available here: I could make a demo, why not. I'll see  Wink
20  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-08 14:14:09
Well I worked on this game for almost a year now. The first playable version came out by the end of August, 5 months ago. Creating a stable 3d engine required a lot of time  Tongue
21  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-07 17:20:20
I just released FarSky Beta v3.0 today!

Main features are: Adventurer & Survivor game modes, and day&night cycles.
The goal of the game is now to fix your submarine and reach the surface. I'll add the sandbox mode soon to mess around with no objective.
Take advantage of the day to explore and collect resources. At night, predators are more numerous and more aggressive!

22  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-05 17:21:29
@Troubleshoots: well, it should be for Monday or Tuesday of next week!!  Grin
23  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-05 16:11:13
Hey everyone!
I just put on youtube the first trailer of FarSky! Hope you'll like it!

<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

By the way, the waves you see at the end are rendered inGame and will be in beta v3.0 release. I'm pretty proud of the final result  Cool haha! (Making realistic waves is actually easier than I though. You only need a simple vertex shader with cos and sin maths in it)
Anyway, I'll launch the next update tomorrow or the day after, so really soon!
I also just updated the website! If you want to check it out, it's right here:
24  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-03 22:47:41
you're right, he does not pronounce it right. The idea is "far from the sky". He told me after he was sorry about this, but it is really not a problem. Actually saying farski is kind of cool! but it does not have any meaning, so...  Tongue
25  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-02-03 12:10:33
sorry for that. There is a simple way for me to understand why it does not work for you (you would just need to send me a file). It does not require a lot of time (maybe 1 or 2 minutes), but I would understand if you don't want to do that:
- open the Launcher (not the game, just the launcher)
- click on "Options"
- then click on "Open log folder"
- A new window should open with a file inside called "farsky.log". Can you send me this file to please?

Sorry for the trouble, really.
In any case, don't hesitate to email me (same address), I don't like to leave someone in this kind of situation :/
26  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-01-18 11:06:30
@Damocles: Well, you say that at the right moment. I was really focusing on the gameplay, and I'm currently working on the goal of the game. I can't say too much about it as it is still in progress.
@Icecore: I don't understand if this is nice to me or not, or to others. You seem to be angry at something for sure, I don't know what. Please stay respectful and polite. Smiley
@Drenius: I will make a trailer video in a few weeks. I don't have the time to make a gameplay video for the moment. Here is a link to a Brazilian video of Beta v2.2: (has been seen 18 000 times in 10 days, OMG!  Grin )
27  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-01-17 17:11:22
I'm about to release FarSky Beta v2.3 today!

This update mainly focuses on doors (which stop water flooding), barracudas, cookers and some other small features. Also, all your inventory is dropped on the floor when you die now.

PS: yes, I did not talk about v2.2, that is because it was a bug fixing update only, haha!
28  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-01-04 12:21:27
Actually permadeath is only for the Alpha. Since Beta v1.0, there is no permadeath anymore. When you die, you just lose some items from your inventory and respawn in the last base you entered.  Smiley
29  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: FarSky on: 2014-01-03 15:19:34
I'm about to release FarSky Beta v2.1 today!

This update mainly focuses on the base design. It now has lighting, levels, and the look & feel of it has been modified to make it look nicer and more realistic.
Also the workshop table system has been improved and redesigned Smiley
I'm currently spending more time on furniture and stuffs around the base.

If you want to see a video of v2.0 (previous version), here it is:
<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

For the moment, the game is doing well. I have several sales everyday. It's not very big, I could not live with that for the moment, but I did not launch the game on any platform (can only be bought from my website) and did not talk much about the game (only here, TIGforum & Gamejolt), so I'm pretty confident for the moment Smiley

@opiop65: trying to implement better looking assets now, glad you like it Wink fish are now different depending on your depth.
@Drenius: Many krakens will attack you and try to break your base. They come regularly, but you can protect your base with harpoon cannons. Whenever they break a part of the base, water goes in and your base gets flooded. Broken walls can be fixed of course. Smiley
I made this video a week ago while I was working on the flooding system:
