    It has been three days since I said goodbye to the colorful cast of characters in Mythic Ocean and yet I still think of them fondly at random moments throughout my day. Mythic Ocean is one of those rare gems that gently works its way into your heart and mind, where the story is so creative and wonderfully told that you can’t help but think back fondly on the time you spent in its world. Mythic Ocean isn’t about putting limits on the player for the sake of progression. Instead, it encourages you to dive deep into its story and rewards you with a world full of life, color, music, and meaning that is sure to stay with you for years to come.

    Mythic Ocean is a very cool game. I enjoyed my time with it, and people looking for an engaging visual novel with an open-world feel and relaxed pace will like this one. I wish I had more to say about Mythic Ocean, but I really don't, because it's a solid game that doesn't really do anything wrong.

    So, yes, it makes absolutely no sense. And yet within its own doolally world, it makes all the sense. It’s a lovely, daft, interesting, deep and complex game, with no combat, no death, just choices and consequences. Ethical dilemmas and questions of morality. And, perhaps most importantly, a head-banging puffer fish and a breakdancing crab.

    Devoid of any conflict or action, Mythic Ocean is a tranquil, laid-back experience. It’s the perfect remedy for a busy day; traversing the ocean depths is serene and relaxing, and encountering the game’s myriad of weird and wonderful creatures is continually delightful. If you’ve enjoyed games in the past such as Abzu or Dear Esther, you’ll find something to love here. And the fact that Mythic Ocean has been created by such a small team makes it even more impressive.

    An interesting little game with novelty, important choices, and lack of need for violence. You spend most of the game exploring the visuallyAn interesting little game with novelty, important choices, and lack of need for violence. You spend most of the game exploring the visually interesting but rather small universe in which your actions will have a major impact on the future of the larger universe. When you've made all your choices, the authors show you their idea of your choices' impacts. The godling I chose was the most amiable but didn't have the skills to hold his creation together, so the ending I got was a downer. I haven't looked at the other endings.

    One small but annoying tic was the persistent use of 'they' in reference to singular persons. Apparently this is done to avoid persecution by the relentless forces of the politically correct thought police. It leads to sentences like "Once species started to disappear, they were reminded of Lutra's feeding frenzy." So who is 'they' in that sentence? Lutra? The species? All the gods? One particular god? English is not a perfect language, but fuzzy thinking is a bad enough problem already without writers making it fuzzier. Fie!
