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

Just a small suggestion but maybe you should add a free demo so people can see what they would buy Wink

Before release this game was free to play so a lot of people have already demoed it. Plus all the videos on YouTube give a good representation of the game.

@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: http://gamejolt.com/games/adventure/farsky-alpha/17438/ I could make a demo, why not. I'll see  Wink

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

Man, i wish my computer was not ancient i cant even run opengl 2.0. I tried getting the alpha but when I started it it said "Sorry, your computer doesnt support opengl 2.0" and i have updated my graphics drivers. Oh well... And Im on a laptop so I can not replace my graphics card  Sad

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..

Looks simply stunning and a fantastic concept at that.

How is it doing on the market? Just curious, is it making enough for you to focus more on it and less on work? I can imagine a lot of time was put into it hehe.

@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:

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: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=226898710

Have fun!

You just need to re-download the game and the Installer will re-install it for you.  Smiley

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
