Looking for something a little different to play? Well, you may be interested in a unique platformer which also integrates the narrative elements of a visual novel with RPG style exploration. That’s Even the Ocean and it’s now available for your perusal on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Coming from the minds behind the Zelda-like Anodyne, Even the Ocean tells the story of Aliph, a lowly technician at a power plant in Whiteforge City. An unfortunate incident during a bit of routine maintenance puts Aliph on a direct course towards an unknown threat. The fate of the world depends upon the balance of energy. With some new-found abilities bestowed upon her, both Light and Dark energies must be utilised in order to overcome diverse obstacles and, ultimately, stabilise the city.
While exploring the beautifully strange environments of Whiteforge City, you’ll meet new pals, make allies and encounter enigmatic travellers. And to ensure it provides the experience you desire, meaning that if the complete offering isn’t for you, Even the Ocean can be played as either a story-only or gameplay-only game. Can’t complain about that now, can we?
To be able to embrace what Even the Ocean brings to the table, visit the Xbox Store where it’s currently discounted at £11.99 for two whole weeks – when it reverts back to the usual price of £14.99. It’s also out right now on the PS Store, but Nintendo Switch players have to wait until 21st August to get their hands on it.
A lowly power plant technician for Whiteforge City, Aliph, finds her world turned upside-down after a routine maintenance trip goes awry. Now, working directly with Mayor Biggs to face an unknown menace, Aliph must navigate her newfound power and influence to save the city. Aliph’s identities, environmental issues and the world’s fate all hang in the balance of Light and Dark energies.
