Farsky Interactive announced on Steam and in their email newsletter on March 19th that all three of their titles on Steam will be delisted “in April”. Each of the game pages for FarSky, Sky Break, and The Free Ones was updated with this short announcement:
In April 2022, the game will be removed from the Steam store. Anyone who already bought the game will still be able to play it. The same will apply for all the games of the Farsky Interactive company.
Making our games was an intense journey. We made them all with care and passion. We thank everyone who enjoyed our games, and hope we brought some hapinness, emotion and fun to most of you.
In a few follow-up replies the developer confirmed that they asked Valve for a final sale for the games and expected the discount to appear after a few days. They also expressed their gratitude for the comments since the news broke and contemplated eventually writing a postmortem on the company’s history.
Hello everyone. Thank you for all your messages, it is really unexpected for me and very touching. Sincerely. I am thinking about making a postmortem, explaining the short story behind the company and the difficulties I faced. Also, I may put some light on the all “Subnautica / FarSky” inspiration thing. Would you find that intersting ? Where could I put this?
Farsky Interactive officially stopped working on new games in November of 2018, echoing the familiar refrain of being lost among the thousands of new titles released on Steam each year. They’ve maintained their three titles on Steam until now. Thanks to RandomishLodestone who submitted the news to the site. I’ve added a temporary date of April 1st to the Watch List calendar for now and will have pages up on the site later.
