Even the Ocean is a video game for the computer (Steam, etc.) that is comprised of two games. "The Ocean" Explore and learn the nature, boundaries and future of an fantasy world with diverse landscapes. Balance your energy bar to modify your horizontal and vertical movement speed as you travel through the world of The Ocean. "Even" Even is a woman in her 20s in a fictional present-day seaside town: meet and learn about people around her town, as well as explore Even's thoughts through this slice-of-life walk-and-interact + daydream-exploration-platforming hybrid game that also looks at mechanics developed in The Ocean.
Hi there, Sean here! It's been a good week of work. We finished up a lot of the Gauntlet Areas (for more info on what a gauntlet is, visit eventheocean.com ), which was nice since Jon is out of town at the moment. I started working on a fancy dialogue box while finishing up some of the later gauntlet stages and brainstorming and working on some nature areas from The Ocean. I also did a lot of music:
Here's a sort of silly video of the dialogue box in-progress. It will be able to move around the screen and have an arrow to follow the NPCs, so that is a nice polish thing on top of the game - it's nice how polished nice dialogue boxes make a game feel - though - it's always important to make sure you have a strong mechanical core to the game.
Anyways, we will keep working. Check out the demo if you haven't played it yet, it is free. T.co
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go program some more NPCs and keep working!

It does feel unfair to make massive discounts after fans buy it right after release for near full price.

financial need , with Even the Ocean...the game will be relatively expensive, hopefully worth it though.

Hi fans, in an age where there's a race to the bottom with games and bundles....I'm going to try to avoid massive sales unless we're in

RT @GivethNoFucketh: What's crazy to me is that when I'm not on Twitter, it's like Ferguson doesn't exist. No one that I come in contact wi…
