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!)

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.

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.

WOW!

You managed to cross GLaDOS with Socrates. That is pure incredibationality. It is so magnifenomiacal that I had to invent three words just to descriptionate it. I make jokes, but I mean every word. If it were't for the annoying password hunting, I would give this a 10. As is, it gets a 9.5. Congratulations on making a truly deep game!

wow

I took pretty much time to play this game. And yet, I got so much questions left. I do have to say the repeating music got me irritated after some time. The black/white and everything in between setting was ok. Kinda gives the game a atmosphere that I think it needs to.
5/5 9/10, I really hope there will be more of your work soon

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.
