Set on a huge procedurally generated world, Project 5: Sightseer from the developer of Windward is a sandbox open-world survival game where you pilot various vehicles.

Instead of running around as person like in other survival sims, Project 5: Sightseer is more about technology. Starting you off in a rather crap land vehicle, you eventually build up an outpost and research much better transportation including those that enable you to fly vast distances easily.

The start of the game is a little painful due to how slow it is, but if you do stick with it once you get some upgrades going it's quite relaxing. Seems like it's come quite a long way since I last played, with a reasonably good tutorial in place now too.

It's not really a game if you're into anything fast-paced. Project 5: Sightseer is more for those who enjoy exploration, mining for resources, building up a base and perhaps a little bit of combat here and there.

Our community has graciously provided a server for Linux fans to play with each other, look for GamingOnLinux in the server list.

You can find Project 5: Sightseer on Steam.

Played it a lot in 2017, playing it again today. I feel i'll play it at least as much as the first time...

same, played a lot in 2017 and at the beginning of 2018, recently started again on the official PvP server, don't have huge amounts of time to play, but the game seem to have improved quite a bit. Linux specific issues fixed and New Neutral and Hostile NPCs with missions etc are added, new minimap and probably a lot more i havent discovered yet.

Another one to fire up again and check out then. I liked the idea and also the slow pace it has. It's kind of relaxing.

Oh yeah I really like this. It does seem like a great game to chill with. My only slight qualm is I do wish you had the -OPTION- to get out and explore on foot for smaller scale stuff, but I like that the primary transportation is vehicular.

I'm on the fence. It looks sweet to me, but I'm not really in the mood. I'll add it to wish list for now and see if I get in the mood sometime. ;)
