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!

The Infinite Ocean Goes On Forever

I played this when you had to download it and had to write down the damned passwords. It was great then, and it's even better now.

The password system is perfect. One thing I had trouble with in the previous form of the game was typing in that damned long-ass password, both because of its longevity and because I had difficulty with the interface (the buttons didn't work properly), but that, thankfully, is rendered completely null and void with the new password system. Other games with passwords of this sort (where it's just a bunch of random letters and numbers laying around and you don't have to, say, guess that a character used his mother's maiden name as a password) would do well to adopt a similar system.

The graphics are quite good. They work, even if they are a bit dark. Word of advice, don't play with a bright background. The writing is, of course, amazing. The gameplay is retro. Then again, this was first made in 2003, what do you expect?

What I liked best was, of course, the story. It draws you in, deep under an ocean of possibilities and implications, the depths of which truly are infinite.

Trully a masterpiece

I ...
I tried to start the previous sentence dozens of times...
But I can't put my thougth into words , at a time like this i wish I had your sense of great wording.
This game was amazing, or more like, this story is amazing, cause trully this is just a story of how an A.I. would react to humanity stupidiness.
I hope that one day everyone will get atleast 1% of the insight this story can give.
I'f that happens trully mankind would start to really become an 'advanced' species.

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.
