Far: Lone Sails is a vehicle adventure game. You play a little guy manning a giant vehicle as you make your way through the ruins of Joe Biden’s America…. Ok that joke wrote itself. Seriously though, you make your way through the ruins of a dead civilization on this machine. There are two ways to power it, through energy items you pick up and feed into the machine, and sails you can raise. Occasionally, you come to a blockage, and you walk around to push a button or two to clear it and move on. That’s pretty much the game.

I’ll be honest, I got stuck in a storm later on. I had no energy and the sales useless. I guess I was supposed to save more energy early on for later. Still, I enjoyed the journey I did take. Far: Lone Sails is a somber adventure and revels in solitude. The game play isn’t amazing, but this is one of the games where the mood is the star. This came out on PC in 2018 and made its way to Switch in 2019. There is a sequel that I’ll get around to reviewing. While I got stuck here, I will recommend this game.

Overall: Far: Lone Sails is a somber, solo journey through the ruins of a dead civilization, that is worth a ride!

Verdict: Recommended
