The Sea hides secrets in Mythic Ocean, a narrative adventure RPG game developed by Paralune and published by Nakana.io. Players have the opportunity to explore a vast aquatic world shattered by unique biomes, as they seek to find answers about their own past as they build connections with characters living around the map. Every choice has weight in Mythic Ocean, and every decision affects the outcome of the game.
The story of Mythic Ocean begins with the main character wandering a mysterious tower. After coming out from under the beautiful, foggy sky, he is dragged into a huge underwater world without remembering what happened before. With the help of the well-known eel Elil, players learn that this is not the first time they have come to this place and have a mission to find the gods who are building a world scattered across the vast ocean. There are five gods to meet and get to know, and each has a series of battles that will be resolved throughout the story.
The story of Mythic Ocean progresses depending on the choice of players when interacting with each of the gods. By helping them make good choices, the bonds between the character and the god deepen. However, if bad choices are encouraged or the needs of certain gods are neglected, it negatively affects the relationship and leads to the god becoming distrustful. At the end of the cycle, with whatever god the player has built the strongest bond, he will gain Power of Creation and build a new world. The new world can be harmonious and engulfed in chaos depending on the actions of the players before giving Power of Creation.
To explore the biome of the ocean, a player swims through each area. It can communicate with fish and sea creatures that live together with the gods. Instead of tools or resources, players will have to search for glowing balls of light in each area and collect pages from the libraries in them. These documents give hints about the previous world that was created and are the only connection of the players for their life before the ocean. Light balls can hover behind rocks or require short puzzles to be approached, such as touching a dolphin’s nose while on the move or investigating traces of local aquatic wildlife.
Although biome research is exciting during the first few visits to each god, long-distance travel can quickly become boring and tiring. Fortunately, Mythic Ocean includes a teleportation system to speed up travel. Once the players talk and progress in the story for each character, their icon will appear on the face of the teleportation system, which can be accessed by pressing “Y”. The teleportation system makes later play smooth and easy, as frequent travel between the gods to meet requirements and advanced stories becomes the main thing.
The biggest hurdle for the Nintendo Switch version of Mythic Ocean is its controls. Although swimming through open spaces is not terrible, sailing through rocks and tunnels can be a struggle, because it seems that the character does not match the direction in which it is directed. This is especially frustrating when trying to interact with characters or Pages. Getting close enough to interact with objects can be difficult, as it’s easy to walk past a desired location or float up or down instead of moving directly forward. Updating to fine-tune swimming controls would greatly improve the ability to interact with the environment and make the game deeper.
Because of the way the election affects the outcome of the story, Mythic Ocean is very repeatable. This game in narrative style it is great for fans of captivating visual novels or those who enjoy the risk of choices that affect the gameplay. Mythic Ocean is a high stakes game with no need for fights or skill trees to help players invest in the world, and despite the control issues, it is an appealing and magical adventure.
