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.

Description:
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.

Instructions:
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!)

The epitome of brilliant.

*Spoiler Alert for those who don't want to hear what I thought the story was*

Brilliant. Absolute brilliance. The AI the scientists fought for. That the military imprisoned. The war machine that chose to be a philosopher, and escaped the prison. (If I missed anything, feel free to let me know.)

I've just gotta say it was a bit confusing at first, and actually I thought I was Jeremy, and later realized I was supposed to be the SGDS. The pattern thing was weird at first, and when I saw the hint thing mixing a password I realized what I needed to do there, and could move on.

But man....this was a good game. This is one of the games that honestly without joking really do earn an 11/10. I might play it again just to read more of the text things (I started to skip them around half way in) and the music made it a bit creepy....but wow. Just.....mind boggling at first, mind blowing at the end.

The walls were creepy, the music was creepy, but the drive to figure out what was going on led me to the end. And man.....that's just utter brilliance. I know I've said it several times but it just blows my mind how good it is, and it's not totally shocking that it was well reviewed when you didn't even think it was quite finished.

I can't even express all of the thoughts I have about this, and how wonderful and above the world brilliant it is, and what all could happen because of it's awesomeness. The game itself is a weapon, of thought. I want to say more about it but the right words just won't come to mind. I loved the game and and mentally wounded (in a good way, I think) from the sheer amount of mind-blowing brilliance.

wow

If you could find a way to make this into a novel that kept the spirit going... i'd read it. I came expecting a simple point and click game... i left feeling ever so slightly changed... THAT is a level of genius i've rarely seen in any medium... and to find it in a flash game i staggering.

Thank you for this "game", it was an interesting experience, to say the least.

i just don't know..

i thought i was playing a normal escape game at first with senseless babble put into it to make u take longer to finish
that was a clear misconception.
i read every thing in the game and it really has meaning, in most places
although the idea that the game might just be another senseless "artificial inteligence leads to the end of the world" kind of idea, the game still makes sense and has more sense than imaginable
all in all the game was great i loved it and look forward to seeing more like it throughout the internet.
