Far: Lone Sails is a gorgeous little game. Like the machine that acts as your stalwart partner the whole way through, it can be clunky at times, but any bumps in the road are easily paved over thanks to some beautiful environments, plenty of exciting encounters, and the absolutely stunning music that accompanies it all. Its full of stressful challenges that made me truly care for the vehicle that carried me through them, and very few games have matched the moments of absolute bliss that come from unfurling my sails and peacefully cruising along with its fleeting fair winds.
Far: Lone Sails is a game that says a great deal without ever uttering a single word. Much like Dear Esther, it’s a journey that can be interpreted in many ways, and as such, your view of its gorgeously desperate world will constantly vary throughout. It’s a shame, however, that such a compelling canvas is slightly held back by its simplicity and its short length. Still, it’s a fascinating tale that deserves attention, just don’t expect too much from its gameplay.
FAR: Lone Sails is not a very long journey to complete. In fact, it only spans a few hours and we were left wanting more. We felt as though the potential of the game hadn't been fully realised as the end credits started rolling. In addition, we also wanted the okomotive to get an extra upgrade or two, strengthening the incentive to maintain it throughout the journey. The game might be a short one, but it most definitely deserves your attention.
