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 AM. blown away. this was less of a game and more so an experience. the writing, which carried absolutely everything (as fantastic writing should), was remarkably brilliant. you are an outstanding writer and game designer. i will continue to hunt for your name online for more depth created by you.. i hope sometime in the future i can pick up a hard cover novel with your publicized work printed between the pages:]

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Surprisingly good.

At first I wasn't sure what to think of this game, I love this art game movement and I've been playing quite a few whenever an interesting one pops up, but I've also noticed a lot of people making vague and minimalistic games with "cool quotes" here and there but with no real meaning.

I was skeptical when I just started the game and beginning to get bored after reading a lot of text that seemed unrelated to anything, but once the actual story started to get rolling I became more and more interested in the story. In fact, some of the opinions expressed by the characters gave me a lot of food for thought.

The whole end of the world thing and nuclear bombs weapons etc. is rather an overused concept for art games, but your execution was very good in terms of exploring the philosophical and human aspects of it, as well as other miscellaneous dabbles in human nature and beauty.

Overall this was a very thought provoking game and while it may not suit the tastes of those who do not like abstract games as well lots of text, I found it very worthwhile.

Thank You.

I apologize but I'm beyond words. I never thought I would find something like this when I joined NewGrounds. Your point of view is...beautiful.
