„FAR: Lone Sails“ is a vehicle adventure game. The player needs to maintain and upgrade their unique vessel to traverse a dried-out sea.


  • Challenging vehicle gameplay: Maintain and upgrade your vessel to overcome numerous obstacles and natural hazards.
  • A unique world to discover: Explore a desolate dried-out seabed, follow the trails of your people and find fascinating relics and buildings, that tell the story of a civilization on the run.
  • Immersive experience: Revel in astoundingly beautiful landscapes and indulge in the intricate, yet soothing soundtrack.
  • A Zombie-free Post-Apocalypse: No violence, gore or death – it’s just you and your machine vs. the big nothing.


Under cloud-strewn skies, the player travels across a seemingly endless dried-up sea, littered with the remains of a once vibrant seafaring civilization. The game’s world is largely devoid of life, yet filled with places to explore and history to discover.

What once was the bottom of an ocean, has turned into a graveyard for submarines and super tankers. Once bustling island settlements have decayed into hilltop ruins. What secrets do they hold? And more importantly… is there any salvage to be found?!

While the greater goal of the journey remains to be uncovered by the player, urgent short-term necessities call for immediate action. The train-like vehicle needs to be fueled, maintained and upgraded to master the challenges that lie ahead…
