Far: Lone Sails for PC, PS4 and XONE is the first game by Swiss studio Mr. Whale's Game Service. The small studio with only a few members was founded in 2015. The game was published by Mixtvision Mediengesellschaft GmBH.

Plot

The game is set in a ruined world, where you are trying to survive. To achieve that, you need an unusual vehicle resembling a train, which you use to traverse the dried-out seabed full of shipwrecks, derelict submarines and the like.

Mechanics

The gameplay focuses on perusing locations in search of items that allow you to survive. The production, however, is not a typical survival game, in which you have to seek for food, build shelters, etc. Instead, you have to take care of your vehicle. You need fuel to drive it, spare parts to fix the broken elements, and upgrades that allow you to reach previously unavailable locations.

Far: Lone Sails for PC, PS4 and XONE is a singleplayer game. The mechanics are quite simple to learn thanks to an intuitive controls system. The game features no expansive tutorials or instructions.

Technical aspects

Far: Lone Sails features minimalist artistic visuals and a fitting soundtrack, which create an appropriate atmosphere.
