Play OverviewPlay Overview

Far: Changing Tides (2022) is an exploration adventure that follows Far: Lone Sail. You work to keep your dilapidated craft from breaking as you explore the ruins of a flooded world.

Like in the previous game, you control your ship by working the controls from inside. In this way, you traverse the ruins of a once-great society and use the pieces from its past to build a brighter future. You work to plunder unknown depths and hunt for fuel and salvage, devise innovative solutions. From bleak shorelines lapped by tides to desolate basins in flooded forest valleys, to submerged enclaves frozen in time, each location tells its own story. To progress, you need to overcome intricate puzzles and unearth forgotten relics lost to time.

It's designed to be a challenge, but one that is accessible and meditative for everyone. Set against exquisite and elegant scenery, and scored by a haunting soundtrack there is no direct narration, but you discover a story that is warm-hearted and life-affirming.

Like the critically acclaimed first game, it encompasses ecstatic highs, mournful lows, and great mysteries to uncover. At the centre of this evocative and poetic journey is the unforgettable tale of a boy and his ship, searching the world for answers.
