Sailaway - the Sailing Simulator is a boating simulation game developed and published by Orbcreation for Steam and released on February 27, 2018.

The game is a casual sailing simulator that uses real-life image processing to map all the world's oceans in real-life scale. The player can take to the water in several real-life models of sailboats and do everything from casually sail to holding online or local sail races.

The game stands out because of its true-to-life factor of realism. The player uses real-life boats and changing the types of sails and other accessories changes how the boat handles in the water. The player also has to deal with real-life and real-time weather as well as climate in different parts of the ocean.

  • Product Placement: The sailboats and accessories in the game are all real-life models and equipment.
  • Unexpectedly Realistic Gameplay: The game is very realistic in gameplay. For example, sailing the Pacific takes months of in-game play.
