The game looks even more awesome!
I would love to play it, but I don't have the money right now.

Also, will you ever work on Overbind again?

Sorry for my bad English! That's because i am from Germany.

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)

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!

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

The trailer is nice, but the music could use some more touch.

Try to play a bit with the echo/reverb , and maybe upregulate the lower frequency tones (bass)
to make it more film-score like. It also sounds a bit too loud (maybe check if the wave is in "overdrive", eg maxing out the volume-space)

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

Games are usually a number cheaper than their trailer makes them look.
Unfortunally, your trailer gives a pretty clear prospect on what the actual game looks like, although this is not bad at all.
Maybe you should not show such animations like the drilling or shooting or plantcutting animations and more like the base-building timelapse.
The rest is actually pretty good, just that as mentioned, you should connect audio and video a little bit more.
Would anybody disagree with anything of this? Open to be wrong.

However, you will definitely not completely fail with this for now. Good job, good luck!

Congrats on greenlight, you've given me some hope my game stands a chance! Wink

If you don't mind me asking, how do you go about spreading the word about FarSky? Did you post it all over and build exposure over the years, or was just having it be top-notch quality when you pushed it to greenlight all it needed?

I also played the game a bit and I'm really impressed. The whole experience is original, smooth, polished and a lot of fun. Plunging into the depths makes me feel thrilled and a bit scared. Yeah, good work indeed.

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

Just bought this game for my 13 yr old son who loves it. He saw it on youtube and we bought it today on STEAM. He started playing it on my laptop and all of the plants glow an annoying neon changing colors. Any suggestions on how to fix that?

@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.
