Also, if you want to learn more about The Far Rings game development. The Dev Blog covers quite a bit of detail. Such as the creation of the game backgrounds. The inspiration behind each character is certainly interesting. And likewise, the creation of the full setting. Which I would probably suggest, after playing. 🙂
Since Steam will not currently register achievements right now. The achievement milestones will also be saved with your game. So when the developers fix the problem. They should register and appear in your achievement list.
While this is all well and good. Verion 2.0 is in the works with additional voice-work. Even a possible ‘true ending’ path.
