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!)



Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was AMAZING. I was scared at first because of the creepy music, so I replaced it with the haru song remix. The result was an upbeat game that reminded me of "Bars of black and white". The message is similar. I loved it! <3

This was beautiful! The long texts didn't even seem tedious because I was so hooked into the story! The graphics made an atmosphere that made me expect a jumpscare or something but it never happened so this is the best thing of my day. The walls were scary enough, though.
(Truth be told, the music started to annoy me after a while, but that might be because it took me hours to beat the game, so that's my fault!)
I can't believe I only found this just now, but I am damn satisfied with my encounter!

I could write hundred pages about this game but there is one simple word that does it justice: Wow.

I AM. blown away. this was less of a game and more so an experience. the writing, which carried absolutely everything (as fantastic writing should), was remarkably brilliant. you are an outstanding writer and game designer. i will continue to hunt for your name online for more depth created by you.. i hope sometime in the future i can pick up a hard cover novel with your publicized work printed between the pages:]

Simply epic. I have always been a fan of this style of gaming, and this is about as close to the old classics like "Myst" as I have seen in Flash in quite a while. I've only seen one other game come close, but let's not make comparisons here. This game deserves credit and respect on its own merits.

The art design was very nice. The back story was a very nice touch, although I'll be honest - I didn't read nearly half of it. But again, that took me back to the older games. The amount of sifting one has to do to solve some of the puzzles was very reminiscent of Myst, wherein there was that destroyed library, with several burned books holding the vital clues needed to pass each of the game's major puzzles. I really liked the "message parser" element of solving the puzzles. I didn't read the instructions before playing, so I got a bit hung up on figuring out what I had to do with the codes, but once I got the hang of it, it added yet another level to the depth of this game. Nothing HUGE, but a very nice touch that beat the simple "click this, click that, wave your mouse around the screen for hotspots, guess what to do next" pattern I see in a lot of other games like this nowadays!

Finally, the soundtrack was perfect, in my personal opinion. It fit the desolation and hope that I was feeling for the main character, although by the time I got halfway through, I knew how it would end for the hero... or heroine?

This was all very nostalgic for me... So my verdict is 5/5, 10/10, and added to my Favorites.
