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!)

Wow

I did not know what to expect when I clicked "the Infinite Ocean", and I surely did not expect this. Nevertheless, this has been an awesome and very deep game. It delivers a strong message and will probably keep me pondering about the true meaning of life for a couple of hours.

I like to see this game as you actually being inside the sentient computer, as if you're an evolving thought. By disabling the manual option, and getting "stuck" on automatic, THINK is now finally able to truly be itself, without anyone forcing him to be a tool of war.

Anyway, like many others have said, you have truly created a magnificent piece of art, and are a great mind. In a way, you are the computer.

I have seen some people ask for a sequel, but I feel this would be out of place. It is perfect just they way it is.

Truly well done.

Incredible

I have had movies make me cry, and books, and songs. Never a game until now (well, no I didn't CRY but I did tear up a little.) The thoughts provoked by this game are some I have never experienced before, and hit me deep. The way you put it, "pure matter being aware of itself" has never occurred to me until now. Thank you for this impressive game. Once I finish my finals I will have to come back and play more of your games.

This is the most meaningful escape game I have played, if it can actually be called that.

Sentience is a very delicate subject. We may never know what it is or where it is and for me, it doesn't matter. It's how we act on these ideas. And that's all they are. Ideas. Reality is what is perceived by an individual and how they process it into something they can deal with. But even as I write this, I wonder, am I really writing this? Is my sentience the only sentience or is everyone else sentient and I just a programmed robot.

Al I know is that I do not know. So I will treat everything the way I feel I would want to be treated, because I want everyone else there with me.

After all, it'd be lonely by myself in an infinite ocean.

Mhm...

Yes. This was an interesting delving into both the human and inhuman psyche. I don't often find myself saying that, either. SGDS kind of reminds me of AM, from 'And I Must Scream'...at least, what might be considered a 'good' AM. Both appear to be fairly tortured 'souls' in terms of their job as a global war system, but SGDS/THINK seems to me like he cared about the planet, but had no choice, while AM was just psychotic.

A good game. The only bad thing was the coloration. It made it hard to find some stuff.
