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

    One of the best things we've played all year. [Issue#201, p.82]

    Far: Lone Sails allows players to complete the game at their own pace, and some might find it to be relatively brief. As a matter of fact, the short length is the game’s biggest weakness. I wanted more, but what’s there is something I treasured.

    Lone Sails is a transfixing, lovely experience, one that takes recurring indie game tropes and does something unique and fun with them. It's short enough that you could play through it in a single two or three-hour session, but it will likely stick with you for a long time. I can see myself going back in a few months just to revisit the ship, like checking in on an old friend.

    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]

    A very atmospheric and unusual journey through dying world, which, unfortunately, has no story at all.

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

    Not quite at the level of "Limbo" or "Inside" in terms of cleverness or completeness (though still clever), it's still an enjoyable quickNot quite at the level of "Limbo" or "Inside" in terms of cleverness or completeness (though still clever), it's still an enjoyable quick pick-me-up that you can beat in under 3 hours. Nice visuals and interesting gameplay mechanics, but there's a little bit of drag when traveling from one puzzle to the next. For a lot of the game, you will be staring at the environment waiting to hit the next obstacle. Many of the puzzles were also so easy you couldn't even really call them puzzles, but there were some good ones. Overall, it's definitely worth playing and look forward to seeing what the studio brings next. They have potential. Expand
