From Press Release:

Okomotive’s FAR universe expands today as players traverse a flooded landscape on a meditative journey with FAR: Changing Tides, the latest release from Frontier Foundry. With a dynamic soundtrack, painterly art style and added verticality with the dive feature, this post-apocalyptic adventure aims to deliver a memorable experience for players both new to and familiar with the critically acclaimed companion title, FAR: Lone Sails.

Crossing a drowned world in a ramshackle vessel, players will control Toe, a lone boy captaining a ship above and below the waves, through puzzles, flooded civilizations and unforgiving natural elements.

Okomotive Lead Designer and Co-Founder, Don Schmocker, said, “What started as a university project with FAR: Lone Sails has grown into a studio of 10 people, two games and over six years of wonderful memories made at Okomotive. Our development journey for FAR: Changing Tides has ended but we can’t wait to see how our players experience their journey in this wonderful world.”

Throughout the campaign, a number of activities and partnerships have been revealed along the way to celebrate this unique and beautiful game. Highlights include an Awesome Games Done Quick charity stream with the San Francisco Monterey Bay Aquarium here, an ArtStation narrated art tutorial here and the Soundwaves lo-fi soundtrack here.

Senior Director of Publishing and Commercial, Chad Young, said “Okomotive’s passion for their craft and the incredible experience they have delivered is a perfect example of Foundry’s aim – to help teams make the games we want to see. We gave the studio our support and their vision has resulted in a game that is both beautiful and emotional, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.”
