About this game
Developer: Jo-Mei GmbH
Content Rating: Teen
An episodic action platformer that deals with themes of love and loneliness. In Sea of Solitude you play as a young girl named Kay, who begins to transform into a dark monster one day. During her solitary journey across the flooded world Kay is trying to find out what exactly is happening to her. Soon she realizes that her true enemy are not monsters encountered on the way, but something much more powerful and dangerous. Gameplay in Sea of Solitude is presented in third-person perspective, and focuses on exploration, solving logic puzzles, and completing arcade challenges. The protagonist can run, jump, swim (or travel by boat), and move various objects in order to open a way for herself to hardly accessible places. Sea of Solitude stands out with its original graphics, resembling an animated motion picture. The game also conveys a deeper meaning, the message being that a desperately lonely person may gradually become a monster.

Sea of Solitude gives you a beautiful world and an intriguing story but the gameplay fails to evolve enough to make this a compelling adventure.
A wondrous world and keenly felt themes are slighted by unsubtle writing.
I’m torn on Sea of Solitude. I don’t know what score to give it even. I can’t say I love the game because I definitely don’t. I don’t hate it either. It has also been on my mind constantly since I finished it and that must mean something. Maybe I’m just too rooted in my own depression to understand this game. I’m not sure. Ultimately I’m giving this the same score I gave GRIS because I would find it unfair to give it anything lower or anything higher and I feel obligated to give it some score.
