    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]

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

Inf your like games like Inside, this is one of the best of its kind. I was constantly taking screenshots as the art is fantastic. Do yourself a favor and get this little gem. I wish it was much much much longer. I wanted to last hours. I beat it in less than two. The ride is short but sweet. Expand

    Three hours of boring gameplay for $15. Those claiming good gameplay think that watching a kettle boil is both mentally and physicallyThree hours of boring gameplay for $15. Those claiming good gameplay think that watching a kettle boil is both mentally and physically challenging. The art and music are good, but the rest is MIA. Expand
