Sailaway as the title says is a simulator of a sailing boat. It's a very good title for relaxing because that what sailing is all about. This game gives you a lot of freedom. The boat behaviour is well coded and feels real, the boats can also be customized which gives a lot of satisfaction and leads to creativity. Overall, nice relaxing game if you're into simulation and have a stressful job.
This game has a lot of potential and it already shows developers know what direction they are heading. While graphics are rather mixed, being boats look well and detailed, water and everything else looks incredibly underdeveloped to the point that it seems like a mixture of two different games. Sound is ok, nothing to complain much, because there are no high expectations other than sound of water and maybe ropes. The meat of the simulators like this are gameplay (or in this case, simulation) and immersion, and here it is really well done and it shows promise. You can customise your boats however you wish. Physics and how the boat reacts are pretty spot on and weather system is well done. Only bad thing about it would be it's unpolished and you have to wait for final product, since it is in early access and those games have rather low odds leaving this stage. For what it is now, it's great promise for the things to come and if you want to immerse yourself into sailing and you enjoy this type of game (simulation), you will love it. Everyone else, better wait on the shore for this sail to leave EA port.
