Mythic Ocean review Nintendo Switch release date July 2021 Paralune narrative storytelling for players, make friends with gods and change the cosmos

Developer Paralune has announced that Mythic Ocean is coming to Nintendo Switch with a release date of July 2, 2021, and it has a demo available on the Switch eShop. It released on PC release last year, and it will also come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at some point in the future. This is a unique game, in that you will explore the titular ocean and befriend the gods that live there, and how you interact with them could “change the cosmos” when a new world is created. Or to put it another way: “Teach the gods to create a better world – or mess it all up!”

Paralune is a three-person developer from Austin, TX that wants to involve the player in the storytelling, and that certainly seems to be the case with Mythic Ocean. Gameplay seems to just consist of exploring beautiful underwater environments and talking with various inhabitants, influencing their way of thinking. There is no combat and no failure state; you just provide your honest (or not) input on things, and it will influence the sort of world the gods create. There is also a breakdancing crab.

If you’re looking for a unique and serene experience on Nintendo Switch, then Mythic Ocean might be up your alley upon its release date next month.
