Beautiful Oceanic Adventure Game, Sail Forth, Delayed Until 2022

Developer Festive Vector and publisher The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild have announced that their upcoming sailing adventure game, Sail Forth, has been delayed until 2022.

Sail Forth was announced a while ago and was scheduled for a 2021 release date. The swashbuckling adventure game was supposed to be a sailing simulation game. However, it would seem the developer has expanded their horizons. According to a press release, developer Festive Vector has transformed it into a “full-blown oceanic adventure” by adding a lot of new content. The press release reads:

With the scope of the game growing beyond our original plan, we’ve had to push the release to next year to ensure Sail Forth is the epic adventure our players deserve.

What Is Sail Forth

The game has changed somewhat since its initial announcement. It is therefore worth noting some of what players can expect going in. You’ll take on the role of a ship captain and must sail around procedurally generated oceanic worlds engaging in an epic narrative. There’s realistic sailing mechanics, fishing, racing and photography alongside combat and bosses. Suffice to say, Sail Forth is set to be a spectacular experience. It is comparable to No Man’s Sky if that game were set in the ocean and good on launch. Here is a breakdown of some of what you can expect:

  • Explore procedurally generated oceanic worlds using either realistic sailing mechanics or an auto-sail option depending on your playstyle
  • Immerse yourself in a stunning world with a dynamic day-night and weather cycle
  • Fish, race, snap pictures and more in the various side quests and minigames available
  • Listen to the ambient and responsive soundtrack as you sail around
  • Engross yourself in the “intruging and multifaceted” narrative that features unique factions, side quests and bosses
