Sea of Solitude isnt the kind of game the leaves you feeling happy. Its subject matter focuses on real-life emotions, from depression, greed and lonliness. It explores mental health in ways i've never seen before in a video-game. It captures them in some visually stunning and unique ways, but this is let down by tedious gameplay. The end result is a shallow experience filled with repetative, mundanee segments.
It's a shame, because the opening sequence had me intruiged. The game opens very bleak. This is were your introduced to the main protagonist, a young lady named Kay. She's curled up on a small power boat, floating in what seems to be an endless, stormy ocean. She's alone, feeling isolated from her friends and family. Although she speaks perfectly human, her appearence is quite the oppisit. She looks like a monster; a dark fury creature with glowing red eyes. As a bright light glistens in the distance, Kay follows it with hope she's not alone. This sends her on a quest for
meaning, hoping for a reason to feel human again.
