I prefer not to say too much about the game, as discovering the details for yourself is part of the experience. My personal thoughts about the game and its history are in the afterword, but interpreting its meaning is up to you. Everything in the game is there for a reason.

The Infinite Ocean is a Myst-style point & click adventure game. It's fairly big for a flash game, and has a lot of story, so to enjoy it you need to take your time.

You interact with the environment by left-clicking.
To turn left or right, move your mouse to the edge of the room and click on the arrow that appears.
The main menu appears at the top of the screen when you move your mouse there.
For more detailed information, read the Instructions/Help screen in the game. (Highly recommended!)

I always thought of guns as cool. I still honestly do, but I no longer have any desire to shoot them at anything but targets. I think you just turned me into a pacifist man. The graphics and stuff werent great but it actually helped set the mood that they werent. I have NEVER seen a such meaningful game, even video. And what language is the music in? It sounds like german but I'm not sure. Keep up the amazing work man!

What a strage coincidence. Some days before I stumbled upon Project "Blue Brain" so I recommend to everyone who likes this game to google for "BLUEBRAIN - Year One" a documentary video. But be warned I could not sleep the night I watched that video; both stunning and scaring.
This great game reflects some of the thoughts that went trough my mind that sleeples night.

Way to challenge the player/reader!

Some deep thoughts there! Shame more people haven't watched this :( (I ended up here after loving Alphaland).

An excellent Myst-style game. Only thing it lacks is the passage of time... coffee cups get cold, the characters opinion of things changes (like what the pipes do), and the hourglass flows. That way the player doesn't have to feel they are wondering around in a unchanging environment - yeah it took me a little while to find the password bits I missed. Of course, from a writers perspective the hourglass being "frozen" fits.

The story certainly does challenge the reader. One thing: I think SGDS needs to struggle in expressing itself - not because it is stupid, but because it has to express itself to us, in our language. Just a thought for future evolutions ;)

Pretty good

The story is well writen.
The music fits perfect with this game and I think it can give a really good feeling.
Although I quit after a few hours (2-3) playing I think it's a really good game if you have the free time to deal with it.
Thanks for the feelings and emotions this game gave me.
I rate it 5/5 and 8/10 cause of the music and the really good(in my opinion) story.

This is really good! While the music was kinda annoying and didn't let me focus on the reading, the puzzles were great and the story left me like, WHOA. It's all very complex and surreal. I was amazed at how you developed it, and it's all so big! I just can't find the words to describe it. You have to play it to know it. Well done, a game to remember.

Now, some questions remain unanswered like, who are you? What became of SGDS? What is the great fire? I'd apreciate if you could answer me.

Also, great philosophy in there.
