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!)

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.

I'm not gonna lie...

That was definitely one of the most thought provoking experiences I've ever had. Your philosophy is flawless as far as I can see, and the hope this game instilled in me, being a believer in the pointlessness of life that I am, is truly amazing. I'm so sad that you don't have more views and votes. And I believe whoever voted negatively against you is a nitwit. The gameplay was simple, yet difficult enough to adapt your message into a flash game definition. I can't say how much I appreciate this flash as art, philosophy, and entertainment. You have created something like nothing I've ever experienced before. And it's availability and understandability to even the simplest of minds is even more amazing. Thank you for this. Thank you so much.
