Patch Notes: https://itch.io/t/40167/patch-notes




At the physical edge of a flat world, where no sunlight ever reaches, you must find your brother. But nothing is what it seems, including yourself.





With over 600 Spells and Skills, The Wooden Ocean offers hundreds of viable builds for you to play with.

Want a Greatsword Paladin? No problem.

How about a Staff using Tank? Got that covered.

What about an Archer that knows Radiation? Done, and done.

Anyone can equip any weapon, anyone can equip any armor, and anyone can learn any skill. How you build your team is entirely up to you.




There are monsters. Tons of monsters. Over half a thousand different monsters. And they use the same skills as you. In fact, they use more. So prepare for the worse, and then some.

And did I mention they level up over time? No, they don't level up with you. They level up over time. They get stronger on their own terms. The monsters are controlled by an unknown force, one that is slowly gathering power. So find where they're gathering this power, and slow or even reverse their progress.

But don't worry, there are 3 different difficulties at the start. So you can have plenty of time to read the hundreds of books, talk to the hundreds of NPCs, and solve the dozens of puzzles scattered throughout the game. There is no rush. Well, not until a town gets attacked and becomes permanently destroyed if you don't save it in time.




Speaking of towns, take control of one yourself, and put its ghost citizens to work. Assign them as Miners, Construction Workers, Scientists, Police Officers, Soldiers, Ship Builders, and even Golem Engineers. It's all up to you.

And as this town slowly develops in population, find even more ghosts throughout the World to add to your city. But look closely, as some are harder to find than others.




Yes, you heard right, Free DLC. No microtransactions or expensive expansions for you to buy after you've already bought the game. Just free updates. Updates that will continue on through Early Access and even after its launch.


Good luck, and don't die too much.

Progress for March Update


(thanks to my old army buddy, Ken Forman, for his artwork)



Well, it's about the end of January, and the progress for the March update, Dead Candy, is coming along well. The mapping is almost complete, and work on the scenes and NPCs will begin shortly. So get ready for an interesting side quest and a giant new town. (seriously though, the place is huge. 47 buildings is borderline ridiculous)

In other news, I've received two positive reviews on the game this month. One on Steam, and another on here, and let me just say... thank you all for the positive feedback! It's motivated me to work harder and focus more on what needs to be done, which of course, is a lot.

Also, my hours at work have gone back to a normal 24 hour a week schedule instead of a 32. This will give me even more time to work on the game, as well as daydream future content years from now. (damnit 2020, get here already!) If you see a plot twist happen next year, understand I've been hinting at it since early 2017.

Now, this upcoming update in March will mark the end of year 2, and based on what's been done and what's about to be done, I feel its mapping quota of increasing the size of the game by 50% has been met. While yes, only one chapter has been made, many other aspects have been improved and built upon, such as the new elements, additional towns, and numerous new enemies.

As for year 3 in June, that will open up with a new chapter and multiple side quests, but will quickly switch gears to being mapping focused as well. (Especially in September and December. September being that giant city in the South, and December being that giant frozen area in the North East) I feel once year 3 is completed in March of 2019, work on the game's story and side quests will take top priority above all else from that point on. So expect a LOT more story and side quests in year 4+.

Anyways, enough of me talking about things I haven't done yet.

Good luck, and don't die too much.

Is this game complete? Ran into a 'this content is currently not in the game' north of jahan's house. Want to make sure because I prefer playing a game that's 100% complete.
Can't even start the game due to missing files. And what about this tileswap?
It's explained too complicated.
Oh the RTP is installed!

Thank you for finding that. I apologize for that bug. I´m sure there´s a few more lurking around that I don´t know of. If you find them, don´t hesitate. Luckily, there´s a way around it if you go north west of Jahan´s house.

The game is complete, but I do plan on adding more content as the months and years go by.
Hello.
I`ts a very good game ,i only will tell you that when you look att the map on the wall you can``t exit the map even if you choose yes i will exit.
And when i was lonlely in my party and met
the skeleton king
suddenly two other characters showed up and talk.
Marcus and Amelia

Also you seems to have changed the character portrait(of the lead character) sometime because sometimes another character face shows up when talking.For example when you read the notes on the table :i`ll find you Marcus no matter what.
I can be more specific if you want.
Have you ever been thinking about some sort of questbook ?
And in the catacombs in their room you can walk through the wall to the left under the plant and in the right corner too.I was walking around over and around the room very long just to see if it was some secrets. (passabillity issues)

Thank you for pointing out those mistakes. I´ll correct them right away.

Also, I´m glad you liked the game.

As for the questbook, it´s definitely a grey area for me. I was kinda against it months ago due to the lack of quests at the time, but with you and another person bringing this up, as well as 2 more sidequests in the game as of yesterday, I think the WO would benefit from it now instead of it being unnecessary fluff.
Hello.
When i was running around in the catacombs i find a
crystal and travelled to Northern Kratis,there i freeze direct beside the crystal after talking to some soldier.Crystal and music continues but not me.
Hello.Me again.
In frozen cavern when
i tried to fight the big round snow thing that guardians alot of chests this happens: script window selectable line 61 zero division Error occurred divided by 0
.
EDIT:A little strange thing is that if you goes south of
The infinity hotel(the bed)
you goes through a passage and if you try to go back through the passage it says:this content is currently not in the game.
I`ts a really fun and good game,soo big.It should be fun to see the maps over the game.
I feel bad for all the mistakes lol. I appreciate you guys for finding them all. (and by guys, I mostly mean you kenlan. You´re like a bug zapper. Me and my tester/room mate are gonna have talk... but ultimately it´s my fault, not his. So, me and the mirror then)

Yeah, the game is big mapping wise. (and as of today, it´s about 25% bigger with 5 new areas. As well as 24 new spells, 50 more new weapons and armor, and an extended storyline) Mapping was never something I thought I´d like. In fact, I hated it at first. But slowy, I came to love it.
Next update, I´ll shorten the demo by having it begin with the MC entering the catacombs.
Many fixes and improvements have been made these last few months. With the newest update, v1.3.1, the game is more polished and bug free than ever. And in the coming months, it will only be more so and with even more content.
I`m downloading this right now.You`re doing a great job with the updates.You really cares about the game,and the game was very good before so now with all fixes and expansions it must be great.:) .
I really hope that people gives Wodden ocean a chance.
Can i download the updates/expansions free?I really hope so.
Yeah, all the updates are free, and if the price ever raises in 2017 or 2018, you´ll be grandfathered in. To install a new version, simply extract the new one over the old and continue where you left off.

Thanks for the purchase, and I hope you enjoy the changes. (some of them were because of you)
Hello.
I`m sorry but in the caves right after you open some sort of gate to the right of a pentagram:script "window selectable line 61"ZeroDivisionError occurred divided with 0. And the game crashes.
I can be one of your official testers :) (i found some passabillity issues too no biggie).I`m used to test games and i always will see and find everything,that`s why i really like this game.
You can go on and on and on,
sewers,sewers maze,hollow,caves,catacombs it`s facinating
.
Last time i played this for some hours i was alone all the time.
Must really missed the other two back then.
.
I really reccomend this game for these who likes dungeon crawlers with good fights there you can explore Alot.
A question:
in the puzzle room With statues and bookshells "poetry of bronze III how should i answer? i read the books and answer after them who shot and who dies etc ,but the gate doesn`t opens?

EDIT,it`s right when you touch an enemy just right to the rope down to the caves.I test it once again with same result.
edit2:When the woman casts Fan it says:Does a Volley
Thanks for the feedback and bugs, I´ll throw you into the credits for the January update. (Feb is gonna have a small update with a heavy focus on testing. If you´re interested, let me know)

As for the puzzle, the truth has no thieves was originally it´s hard to use something when you don´t have it. Hopefully that hint helps.
Yes i`m interested.
I have a question about swords
I found the Frog sword(2 dead and 10 HP for the last one when the "evilfrog" died.:) and it says:10 sword and staff skills .I got 2 each directly and can learn 8 sword and 6 staffskills.is it right?The Artisan Goblin sword says:2 sword and dagger skills and i got 2 swordskills and 2 dagger skills and can learn 10 sword and 8 daggerskills.I don`t know,i think something is wrong here!?

edit:
you don`t have a picture/portrait for the Golem?and now the Golem is gone from my party,why?and i put some ring on him that he disapeared with.How is everything working with the Golem?How to get in the "Golemshop" again?
Cool, I´ll have the build ready in late Jan. Nice fight btw.

That number on the sword, and this goes to all weapons and armor, is just weight. I just looked at both weapons, and they´re fine. Just a little misunderstanding mixed with most likely comparing two characters with two different sword progress.

Golem and Ghost Ship facesets are currently being worked on. Also, the Golem is only for your mines, so he´ll leave when you leave. As for the shop, just talk to him when he´s not in your party and look for the option called parts.
Sneaked in a 3rd accessory slot last night before any downloads were made. (increased enemy tech rate to balance it) The 3rd slot may crash the game for previous saves if you try equiping anything onto it, so save before you do. If you´re late game, you´re fine using just 2 accessories since the new enemy tech rate won´t do much to you, but the closer you are to early game, the more I recommend a new playthrough.

Good luck and have fun with the new build possibilities.
