Far: Changing Tides’ story is a little longer and its puzzles more refined than its predecessor, while its world is as beautiful as ever.

FAR: Changing Tides is a mysterious, intriguing game. It builds off the inventive mechanics of managing a ship, the adventure you face taking on a vaguely unsettling tone at times. It’s also fairly short – I finished it in about five hours – but that means it also doesn’t try and stretch out its ideas until it outstays its welcome. This is an original and artistic game that deserves a little appreciation.

FAR: Changing Tides is a beautiful game with a stunning soundtrack that puts you in control of a ship you’ll build a fantastic bond with.
