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!)



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!

Amazing, but a bit tedious

The atmosphere of this game is really amazing, and the story too. It had me playing for a long time although its the middle of the night and im really tired. However, finding all the password fragments is a bit unnessecarily tedious: It takes a lot of time, isnt really interesting and those who enjoy the game will read all log entries anyway. Actually I didnt quite finish the game, after seeing in the walkthrough how much fragments i need to find. I really regret this because i would have loved to experience the rest of the game. Maybe its just that i´m not patient enough for point-and-click-games, but those really long and pointless "finding the clue" parts are a real dealbreaker for me. Still, 4/5 and 8/10 for the story and feeling.

Snobbish game

There's difference between artistic game and snobbish game.
Disproportionately exaggerate the lyrical side, with the music, text, graphisms, etc, not enough to make a game interresting .
And it does not have to hide the complete lack of originality of the idea.


This is by far the most brilliant and philosophical game I have ever played. This game was beautiful, it was scary, it was truthful, and it made me think like I never had before. Truly, I enjoyed this game very much.

Same as the reviews below - came here with alphaland :)

Yeah,the graphics are really nice,specially because they are 3d models ones.
The story is also well made.
The black and white colours also adds up to the artistic feeling on the game.

A very nice PnC!
