What would you do if you were friends with the gods, and your influence on them could change the cosmos? Mythic Ocean is a first-person atmospheric and charming adventure where you’ll befriend a pantheon of gods under the sea, help solve their problems, and make choices that shape the birth of a new world.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to speak to a god, you’ll get do to just that in this game. There are five gods that you need to speak to and gain their friendship to learn about them, and influence them in choosing how they interact with each other. Then, you’ll ultimately decide who will be the next creator of the ‘new world’.
Each of the gods are different, with their own fears, aspirations and feelings. When talking with them, you gain insight into how they feel, and what they fear; which will lead to how they would create the new world.
A fun, explorative narrative, where the main objective is to speak to the underwater characters, gods, and travel to other parts of the ocean to learn about each god and help them with their problems, and feelings.
As you explore, you need to collect parchments of information from hidden locations, and the only way you can collect these, is by searching for orbs of light in each area. These will affect gameplay, so I recommend spending the time searching for these.
Very enjoyable game, no stress of boss fights, or enemies waiting to attack; just exploration and conversations. Lots of back and forth, however, I didn’t really notice it too much as I was so focused on talking to everyone.
You use a teleportation device to go between each of the gods, and areas they are located in. So once everything has been discovered and you have spoken to the other characters, you’ll just be teleporting between each god until the end.
It was a very chill experience, the music was peaceful and comforting, and some of the NPCs were stunning in colour. There was even a punk-rock fish called Lord Poison that sung! He was my favourite.
The underwater atmosphere was well designed, with the characters and vegetation swaying gently in the current. Pretty cool and stunning views at certain moments and the lighting at different points in the ocean were well done.
A short story, about 2-3 hours. Would recommend checking this out; short, sweet, and interesting.
- Interesting story
- Beautiful scenery
- Simple controls
- Lacks depth
- Exploration is fun, but very limited
- Potential second playthrough required
- Build-up to the endgame was a little underwhelming
Short, but fun story, with interesting characters and beautiful scenery.
