Welcome to the start of our adventure in Forever Skies!

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

Welcome to the start of our adventure in Forever Skies! That you’re here reading this means a lot to us all here at Far From Home. This is quite an emotional moment as we’re finally able to show you the first bits of our upcoming creation, a game our 20+ team has been secretly working on for the past 2 years. And oh boy, what a journey it has been so far.

Forever Skies is a game of action, survival and discovery amongst the ruins of human civilization. A mass ecological disaster wiped out humanity, with only a few able to flee into space at the last hour. You, a lone scientist now returns to the remains of Earth. A toxic cloud of dust blankets the entire surface. Above the dust are crumbling, makeshift towers where humanity unsuccessfully made their last stand. It’s up to you to now uncover the story of humanity’s fall and witness the birth of a new world that has been evolving below the dust without us. We are no longer at the top of the food chain and surviving here is going to take a lot of skill, technology and ingenuity.

Build, expand and control a high-tech airship that will act as your transport, shelter, laboratory and workshop for researching mysterious substances and crafting tools for survival. Scavenge, find ways of obtaining food and resources, and explore the ruins above and below the thick, toxic dust layer which now shrouds the Earth’s surface.

Our team absolutely love all things survival Sci-fi and so we’re heavily influenced by movies like The Martian, Annihilation and IO Last on Earth to name just a few. Seeing scientists as grounded protagonists, fighting against the hostile environment to survive and doing what they can to get the job done is what gets our creative minds flowing. We’re hoping to give players that same feeling of when Matt Damon, as a stranded astronaut on Mars, says “I'm left with only one option, I'm gonna have to science the sh*t out of this.

This is where we are heading, and what’s very important is that we want you guys to join us on this journey. We can't really see ourselves going forward without community feedback and participation in the future of Forever Skies.

The short gameplay teaser above is all taken from the game, running on Unreal Engine. It shows players searching for a specific virus strain. Something our protagonist needs in order to understand the unusual sickness that has attacked the remaining survivors. It is a tease of a much bigger picture, of a story we will tell later when we will be closer to the release of the full game. There is also still a whole lot more for us to show you. From resource management, building mechanics, monitoring health, reverse engineering lost tech and most importantly, what lies beneath the toxic dust that we will eventually need to descend into.

So please stay with us and as we reveal more and more about Forever Skies. If you want to support us please wishlist and follow our game. And if you want to talk to us (and please believe us - we want to talk to you) see the links below
