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

This was a great game that got me thinking. Not many games do that, so this was quite a treat.
Also, nice touch on the binary. If anyone bothers to translate it, it fills in one of the major plotholes people might find.

*SPOILER ALERT* The binary code of 0's and 1's once decoded reads "this is a dream"

This game is pure art, and made me think(And will keep making me think) for a long time.

I absolutely loved it. Thank you for this.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

read everything. think. take it all in. that's the only way to appreciate this game to its full extent. I still don't quite understand it but I'm sure a few more times through I will get some more of a grasp to the meaning(s).

the music is fitting, and gives an odd atmosphere, the graphics are superb, and most of all I LOVE the password solving. Took me a bit but then I understood how to work everything.

Thank you for creating and sharing this beautiful piece of art.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good, but in the beginning it made no sense whatsoever. I found the (near) ending intriguing when I read about the machine's thoughts. All-in-all very good.

The only thing keeping this from a 10 rating is how confusing the rooms could be. Many times I was not aware I had opened up an area, or that I had not seen a particular wall before. I ended up backtracking quite a lot, and it was also annoying that entries you had read did not stay grayed out when you left the screen.

Other than that this is an amazing and thought-provoking game, and a very real and possible future for us. Our brains are finite-they are a definitive mass and thus by definition are limited. There is absolutely no reason, to my reckoning why a being of circuitry cannot exactly mimic mental processes (and indeed do a better job of it than us), ergo, AI.

Thank you for this.
