What would you do if you could talk to the gods and your influence on them could change the cosmos? Mythical ocean is an atmospheric adventure where players make friends with a pantheon of gods under the sea, help solve their problems, and make decisions that will shape the birth of a new world.
This title combines the free exploration of the open world with the conversational gameplay of a visual novel. As you discover new areas and meet new creatures, you will also encounter different gods with their own unique personalities and situations. They share their motivations and problems and ask for your opinion. The advice you give is constantly changing the story being told, and most importantly, determining which of these gods will arise to create a new word and what kind of world they will create.
Mythical ocean plays in an ocean world in between. There is a mystery of what came before and what will come after, with thousands of unique possible endings. Mythical ocean should be a cycle. A certain ending isn’t really the ending. Not happy with the world your choices created? Try to approach the different gods in the game differently. We appreciate the replayability that is offered to the players.
In this game there is no death, no struggle, no failure. This is about dialogue and influence. What do you think others should do and how do you present it to them? Who do you want them to become (note that you can’t force them)? Mythical ocean encourages empathy and players will likely have to answer questions about themselves as they decide on their answers to various characters. Conversations can be fun and relaxing, but they can also delve deeper into meaningful and philosophical topics. We believe players of all ages can find their own food for thought.
