    1) The game is still far from finished/finishing/over.
    2) The project is still far from finished/finishing/completion.
    3) How far off /far are you from finishing the project?
    4) How much longer do you need to complete the project?

    1) The game is still far from being finished/ being over/ finishing/ completion.

    2) The project is still far from being finished/ being over/ finishing/ completion.

    Third sentence is right in my opinion with the choices shown.

    Fourth one is correct too.

    2) The project is still far from finished/finishing/completion. (although I am less inclined to use "finishing" for a project than I am for a game) Again, you don't need being".
    3) How far off/far are you from finishing the project? "off" serves no useful purpose here.
    4) How much longer do you need to complete the project?
