I love the game. Unique music and cool game design would recommend.
Tale of six
An interesting game with an unusual idea. If you like hard platformers (but you have to be ATTENTIVE, and sometimes you have to think) or you want to try your luck, then this game is for you.

Simple graphics, but was a well made and challenging platformer.

Amazing OST by RainbowFrog.
To all the people reading this, I recommend you finish the full game, explore every location in the game perceiving its beauty whilst doing so, this game is an astounding experience and exploring every region enables you to proceed even further in the lore of the game in which regard I choose not to specify so as to encourage others into experiencing a blind play-through and as to not ruin the lore.
tl;dr - Quit wasting your time looking at reviews and get the bloody game already, its an absolute masterpiece.
I haven’t finished it yet but it takes me ages to finish games and I really want to leave a positive recommendation.
This game is gorgeous, charming and so immersive. I did not expect to be so entranced by this world – especially because I rarely play fantasy games and I’m never interested in fantasy lore – but the more I play, the more I want to discover more areas, more characters and more of the story. I bought this the day it came out because I immediately loved the artwork and the fact that it’s all hand-drawn by one person, I just wish I started playing it sooner.
Even the Ocean
Even the Ocean is an outstanding narrative and platformer with clever puzzles, believable personalities, and quite a long adventure.
- Edit: Probably worth mentioning: It’s of a rare breed of game that can stand on its own merits as a story-driven puzzle-platformer, that also has a message to deliver about society; an existence proof that we can have both, breaking down a dichotomy I’ve seen many people percieve between compelling gameplay and artistic expression in modern games.
I’ve been looking forward to (and following the development of) this game since I played Sean and Joni’s previous game Anodyne, which itself had a wealth of imaginative worlds to explore, each with unique puzzles and atmospheres. Suffice to say, I wasn’t disappointed to find the same wealth of content, crafted with at least as much care and skill as was used in Anodyne. These two clearly know what they’re doing when it comes to game design and development.
Even the Ocean is a 2D adventure platformer at a glance filled with a neat mechanic and no enemies. As I played, I came to realize that there were some deeper elements hidden within the game, including some commentary on modern day society as well.
The game’s primary focus seems to be the story. Like many other games, this one is cliched as well. You play as Aliph, who is new to the big city, and an unsuspecting and unassuming potential hero to save the world, through her skills in mechanics. But as the story develops, you do become attached to the character and the simple interactions on a day to day basis with the people around her, waiting for the next chapter to unfold, or does it? The story is really quite nice, well-written, filled with funny dialogue and social commentary, etc.
Great platform game. It took me a while to get used to the controls, but then I got the hang of it. I recommend.
I really liked this game, it has a very interesting challenge level and an incredible art direction.
