Even the Ocean  

 

Indie games are growing, developing, morphing and changing right before our eyes. Even the Ocean is a great example of this. We are given a choice when we play Even the Ocean. We can play the full game, just the game play levels, or just the story portions. If you want the entire story without any interruption you can get that. If you want no story then you can get that. If you want the combo platter then you can have that. It is neat seeing a video game company give us the choice.

The issues families can have with Even the Ocean are blood, violence, bad attitudes, lies, and more. There is green and purple energy in Even the Ocean. The player has a bar. Fill it up completely with green or purple and you die. Even the Ocean tries to teach the player to have a balance. Do not be too much of one thing or the other. The green and purple can also related to light and darkness as well as horizontal or vertical.

We play 2D side scrolling levels in the gameplay portion of Even the Ocean. Pretty standard indie graphics in Even the Ocean. The music in Even the Ocean is a bit light and unsettling for me personally. The story sections of Even the Ocean have better graphics and sounds in my opinion. There is plenty of dialogue to read through in Even the Ocean. Some of it you might agree with and some of it might offend you.

Even the Ocean feels like a full game, which is something many indie video game developers miss. We have story levels, puzzle levels, and a world map to walk around in. Expect some of the environmentalist preaching their beliefs in Even the Ocean. I had real problems connecting with the main character in Even the Ocean. She is not very relatable to me in this 446 meg downloadable video game.

The world of Even the Ocean looks down upon the power plant technicians. I do not comprehend why. They are keeping the energy flowing which powers the necessities of their civilization. They should be more revered in my book. Fans of new retro video games with a heavy handed environmentalist message might get into Even the Ocean. If they are not illegally breaking into labs and releasing animals who have no idea how to live in the wild.
