FAR: Lone Sails Released

GOG.com, the Humble Store, and Steam now offer the release of FAR: Lone Sails for Windows and macOS, allowing the chance to experience what developer Okomotive and publisher Mixtvision call an "atmospheric vehicle adventure." Launching alongside the game are the soundtrack and a digital artbook as two DLC packages. The launch trailer shows off the game's striking visuals and unusual mechanic of land-based sailing vessels, but does not convey much about gameplay. For more on that we turn to the announcement:

FAR: Lone Sails takes you into a post-apocalyptic, yet zombie-free world: It’s just you and your machine vs. the big nothing. In a unique hybrid of ship and train you travel across an ocean-turned desert following the tracks of a once flourishing civilization. Through an array of roadblocks and through hazardous weather you need to keep your vessel going.

FAR: Lone Sails is all about the experience of being on your way. While your miniscule character sails through barren, yet beautiful landscapes in her enormous vehicle, relaxing moments interchange with busier episodes that demand your full attention: manage your fuel supplies, your vehicle’s condition, and find your way through obstacles of all sorts.

Along your way you will find extra parts to upgrade your vehicle with new features. You will need them if you hope to make it through this journey.

Just as FAR: Lone Sails is about a special journey, the development has literally been quite a trip: Starting out as a student’s project in 2015, FAR: Lone Sails was invited to the E3 ID@Xbox showcase in 2016; its first showing to a wide audience. Following along were quite a few more festivals and expos – including GDC/IGF 2017 and Gamescom 2016 and 2017 – where the game was shown and managed to pick up awards and nominations. It was shown all around the world, from Mumbai to L.A, and has accumulated a mileage of close to 60.000 km by now!

Two DLCs are available alongside the game: a digital artbook containing 40 pages of concept art, sketches, studies, and different game engine renders of the most remarkable characters, buildings, and landscapes you will find in the game and the digital soundtrack with 18 original tracks by composer Joel Schoch recorded with a small orchestra.

Both DLCs are available separately or bundled up with the game as digital collector’s edition.
