Description
Release date: TBA, estimated in Q1 2015
Farlight Explores is a 3D space-sandbox game, made for space exploration, science fiction, resource management and action fans. In this game you can build your base or spaceship, explore the galaxy, extract unique ores in each planet or asteroids, craft new products, transport goods from one planet to another and more...



Farlight Explorers is focused and supported on three pillars:

Auxiliary systems: Design and maintenance of all the elements that your base or spaceship need to be operative (water, food, oxygen, energy).
Automatization: Manage and automate the extraction of ores and production of elements that are essential to grow your base.
Transport of goods: Build spaceships in order to transport the goods is vital in order to produce all the possible elements of the game because each planet will have unique characteristics.

This game was inspired in a lot of great sci-fi games, The game is a really well combination of all the cool ideas from games like Space Engineers, Factorio, FTL, StarBound, Moon Base Alpha, 0x10c, Minecraft, InfiniMiner..., I hope you can enjoy the game, Thank you!!

As a dev form Factorio said in my youtube channel: "Almost every game is inspired by another game. It is evolution. I wish this game is successful so we can be inspired by them as well :)"



The Spaceship is totally movable you can see in the first video when I tried to get resources from a conveyor belt in an Ice planet.
To travel to another planet or space you need to use your map travel module and you could travel to other place. Also if you drive your spaceship to high in a planet the map module will start the jump to the galaxy.

When you start the game you choose a planet to start from the hundreds out there in the galaxy map. Once on the planet you have to extract resources to begin building a base that provides you with the items to survive like food and oxygen. If the base is secure, you can start building your spaceship to go to other planets to extract unique resources that you need to develop new technologies, or you can also use your spaceship to explore.

@KazarkKerman Dieses Spiel ist nicht von den gleichen Leuten wie factorio gemacht. ist es nur durch factorio inspiriert. Oh, und ich weiß nicht, ich gerade auf Deutsch Diese in Google übersetzen = 3

It looks like someone put FTL, Factorio, and Space Engineers into a blender, and this is the delicious smoothie that came out.

@Dmitrii13_87, Hi, thank you for your comment. You are right, I have to add more animations, I think I could have the new character model soon, so in a near future I could add more animations to the game.
