Charming Vehicular Adventure ‘FAR: Lone Sails’ Stars at Gamescom

As Gamescom inches closer, studios big and small are whetting our appetites with new IPs, tournaments, and the chance to try out unreleased games. It sounds like it’s going to be a doozy. Indie team Okomotive will be there with a pre-alpha version of FAR: Lone Sails, its gorgeously bleak debut that lets you navigate through a dried-out sea.

Different obstacles and unstable weather conditions will colour your journey, and to stay afloat, managing your ship is key; you’ll get the chance to explore your surroundings for clues, solve puzzles, follow the echoes of a forgotten civilisation, and while you’re there, fawn over the lavishly stylised vistas. Footage of the pre-alpha version of FAR: Lone Sails released some months ago, and showcases the general gameplay. As for the final destination? Okomotive is leaving that up to you to find out.

FAR: Lone Sails has a projected release date of 2018. Both PC and console versions are in the works. Interested folks can put it on their Steam wish list today.
