Forever Skies from Poland-based Far From Home, the sandbox survival game set on a ravaged Earth in the future, is now available in demo form, the developer has announced. In addition to the demo drop, which is more than 40-minutes of playable game, a new trailer and a gameplay walkthrough have also been made available, all of which you can check out after the jump.

We've actually played a bit of this demo (you have us to thank for there being an option to invert), and can tell you confidently this is a survival game that nails the gameplay loop you crave in these sort of games, while also hinting at a much larger, more mysterious narrative to sink your teeth into, and a world full of disastrous wonder to explore.
The demo is designed to give players a taste of the early game mechanics, basics of survival and of course getting off the ground and exploring a portion of the ecologically ravaged world in their airship.

Start off by exploring the ruined, derelict towers above the toxic dust where humanity made their last home before the eventual downfall. Get to grips with basic survival by gathering resources and building out your airship’s interior with equipment to make sure you don’t die from thirst, hunger or viral infection before you even leave the ground. From there, get your airship refitted and ready for flight all while getting your first clues into what happened to the last doomed crew sent on the exact same mission as yours. Then it’s off into the horizon you go to find a way to upgrade your airship further so you can finally fly above the toxic clouds that blanket the Earth.

The demo will also give players a first glimpse at the virus and infection mechanics. Earth is now full of unknown harmful pathogens that at first will hinder, or even kill you.Through research and experimentation you will need to find cures and remedies lest you end up like the last crew sent before you. As you progress in the full game, the ability to genetically alter these viruses will open up to create highly potent viral boosters. These will alter your abilities and will allow you explore previously inaccessible areas, deal with certain threats or enhance your survival chances.
You're all also really lucky as the demo we were given access to was capped at 20-minutes, so trust us when we say that extra 25-minutes is like gold here.

Our only tip -- make as much as you can before you embark from the first tower so as not to be beholden to the timer counting down.

Check out a 20-minute gameplay walkthrough video embedded below if you can't spare a square as far as space goes for the download. Forever Skies is currently slated for Q2 in 2023 across PC and next-gen consoles.
