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

The deepest most philosophical game ever.

As a coincidence, I also played alphaland before getting to this and I also really enjoyed it. I feel that this game is different from all (or most) others that I have seen. Finishing this game means more to me than finishing any other because there is actually deeper meaning in the game.
I loved the story and the way the game played.
You are now my top favorite game creator/designer on newgrounds (or anywhere at all). I would love to have a conversation with you. I'm a German. Man this game has a lot of coincidence.

This game deserves an 11/10 because it actually means something (unlike most submissions to NG).

Great game!!! I loved how the gameplay was involving, making you really focus on what you're doing and where you are. Putting together the story line was interesting, I found it interesting how much character development you get from the snippets you find around the game. I'm excited to see more titles from you!!!

i just don't know..

i thought i was playing a normal escape game at first with senseless babble put into it to make u take longer to finish
that was a clear misconception.
i read every thing in the game and it really has meaning, in most places
although the idea that the game might just be another senseless "artificial inteligence leads to the end of the world" kind of idea, the game still makes sense and has more sense than imaginable
all in all the game was great i loved it and look forward to seeing more like it throughout the internet.

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.
