    A puzzle platformer about a journey through an atmospheric wasteland, this game is a pinnacle of design brilliance.

    Far: Lone Sails is the kind of game that sticks with you after seeing credits. It delivers a fascinating mystery in a strange land with engaging puzzles, and couples that with a relationship between the player and their oversized mode of transportation. A few areas lack polish and some of the physics felt off here and there, but none of that stopped the story from engaging me in a big way.

    It's not about the destination, but about the journey, as an ol' sayin' goes that FAR Lone Sails captures perfectly. With so little, this game delivered so much on different levels and provides unique experience, feel and vibe. Embark on this epic, yet short, voyage in peculiar locomotive vehicle that will be your mobile shelter and "home".

    Driving the unique vessel is very engaging but simple environmental puzzles are pale in comparison. At the end of the day Far: Lone Sails is a stylish, atmospheric tale of journey. [07/2018, p.58]

    Okomotive has done a beautiful job with their debut game of weaving together simple a simple story and gameplay with gorgeous visuals and soundtrack.

    The game takes so much more than it gives, forgetting that a journey isn't simply about the means of travel.

    Piece of art. One of the most original and best 2D platformers out there. Soundtrack is also excellent.

    It`s short, however it  tells a story you will never forget & at the end most people ask for more. Hopefully there is a sequel. Great story inIt`s short, however it  tells a story you will never forget & at the end most people ask for more. Hopefully there is a sequel. Great story in a rather unique setting. There is only one disadvantage - there are only few pictures that describe LOR of this game. Expand

Sometimes it's better to do what you can do well than to jump over your head, as in almost all modern games. A wonderful adventure. Expand

    Atmosphere and music are great. The gameplay mechanics are original and the gameplay time is perfect.
