As someone who has been looking forward to Oceanhorn for quite literally over two years now since its initial announcement, it brings me great pleasure to finally post a TA Plays of it. What you're seeing is about two hours in, well beyond all the initial tutorial stuff, and instead focusing on the first real island and dungeon you come across.

It's still early in the game, so the puzzles as well as my item load out are fairly basic. Regardless, we do go through an entire dungeon so if you're sensitive to spoilers I'd suggest only really watching the first few minutes.

As of this posting, Oceanhorn will be launching in the US App Store for $8.99 in just under 22 hours and 59 minutes, or, 11:00 PM Eastern. The thread in our forums has been going wild with anticipation, so be sure to check that out too. This game is absolutely beautiful on my iPad Air, and I can't wait to get deeper into it.

    What is the file size?

    • Dammster

      About 300MB according to the developers on forums.

      • Ozzy111

        It ses on the website 260MB so even lower.

  • FledgeFish

    Looks cool but I think I'm gonna save up my cash for A link between worlds

  • Squablo

    I'm getting this AND A Link between Worlds. By the time I'm done with Zelda, maybe, just MAYBE, one of these fabled mfi controller thing-a-ma-jigs will finally be available, and I can play this game with proper one purchase though!!!!

    • Alex

      Speak not of the majestic, fabled controllers or thou will scare them back into their hiding places!

      • matus

        It's sad I've seen more photos of yetis than mfi controllers...

  • brandonnn11

    Finally. The fact that this is premium, along with planned expansion updates makes this an instabuy for me!

    • wigzisonfire

      Even if the game sucks i will unstably the hell out of this. As a thumbs up from me to a team that is trying their best to bring us what we scream out for. Premium experiences at a premium price, end of.

  • B30

    Finally, hoist the sails!

  • thecool111

    Looks really fun, might have to go buy an iTunes gift card for this! I really like that it is a premium title.

  • macsmister

    This looks amazing. My next few days are going to be ruined.

  • toxiccheese

    Looks good. I'll wait for a few reviews. Right now it looks a bit repetitive and the areas look samey... The caves look just like the outdoor areas only with lower lighting and darker shading. Can't wait for the release!

  • kioshi

    I think he said 'Zelda' like 80 times in the video.

    • Ozzy111


  • JJE McManus

    Well, I said I wanted to see a TA Plays.
    The difficulty has me a bit concerned. Great for the core gamer but to really be a hit it has to appeal to a broader audience. Everything else in it screams play me now.
    Still and all I think this is a little gift I'll be giving myself this weekend.

  • mindseyes

    It's still something new and most Zelda like game on the App Store that just seems to work and a game we can just adventure through.

  • Based Xatu

    Makes me miss windwaker. The combat looks a little weak though.

  • dudeman8622

    Looks sweet

  • Adsinjapan

    Yeah yeah! You've got an iPad Air. Big whoop! Wanna fight about it?? 😛

  • dudeman8622

    When is this available

    • one.sixty.four

      Tonight at 11:00pm EST.

  • Pete Osborne

    So glad I didn't skip your frustration with the boss or I'd have missed the spontaneous "I must go, my people need me" randomness! Good thing I wasn't drinking at that moment!

    • YourAverageDude

      I bet several hours into the game that thing is gonna randomly fall back out of the sky onto Eli's dude and kill him

  • sakara214ever

    Hmmmm. Visually it looks amazing. As for the gameplay (seems too easy) and repetitiveness i dunno.... I hope the two years in the works make this game worth of the name and the anticipation it carries.

  • Boobi

    Saw the video couldn't find spoilers, lol. But the game looks great.

  • Jugar Jugar

    Absolute voi! Đồ họa trò chơi and tuyến sprite was built very best, contents cốt questions Chuyện you from must be you, it was too is one of the game actually absolute

  • Jugar Jugar

    Excellent! Graphics and online game character is built very well, the story content from the core to the table, it's a really great game

  • HelperMonkey

    I say, lads.. What exactly is this "Zelda" I keep hearing about? Is it any good?

    • Jake7905

      Good sir, one can only assume that your question is a joke. Well played.

  • rewyan

    They sure got up early......

    ....Still no review on Tiny Death Star?

    • Brown Cow

      "It's like Tiny Tower, but with a Star Wars theme."

      There ya go. You're welcome.

      • rewyan

        I'll review this one.

        It's like Zelda, and I'd rather just play Zelda.

    Is it gonna be a technical nightmare on iPad mini like every other damn game? Tired of buying games that are "supposed" to run on the mini and don't run for shit.

    • Future777

      It runs flawlessly and absolutely beautiful on iPad mini. You have my word on that.

      • Jesse7277

        Thank you kindly for the info. I just got burnt on bit.trip run. It lags to unplayable at times. So I'm super selective about games. Id love to buy this. Just wanted to be sure.

      • Future777

        You're welcome and thanks for asking! We're around to help if questions arise. We put a lot of love and care into polishing the game and we really want you all to experience it the best way possible.

      • Jesse7277

        So you're one of the devs? If so I really appreciate your time. More devs should take the time to inform potential customers about their product. Especially with so many different iOS devices. I applaud you and look forward to playing your art tomorrow.

      • Future777

        Yes, I'm from the publishing party. Thank you very much for your kind feedback.

  • tsargeant3012

    Easily an instabuy for me. Almost all of the games I've sunk any amount of time into have been premium games, and the free-to-play I have enjoyed, I never bought anything in game. Happy to see another developer going this route!

  • Taeles

    Game Center Achievements?

    • Amenbrother

      Anyone know?

      • Future777

        Yes! Achievements and Leaderboard (EXP crystals amount)

  • Nekkedsnake

    Holy cow! This game is only 162.5mb!! I'm amazed!!!

  • Nekkedsnake

    well it's 162.5 before installation, but wow!

  • CzechCongo

    Sorry, bud, you're kinda bad at video games. 😉

    • Future777

      I think playing a game and at the same time talking about it isn't that easy. After all, Eli beat the enemy and that's what counts. No rush

  • Tarzerix

    Lets count how often they say "Zelda" compared to "Oceanhorn"... 😀

  • echode

    When can i get it on the AppStore France ? So pumped for this game !

  • InterTreble

    Unbelievable how many people talk nonsense about Zelda, Mario, etc. and then like games which are 100% copy-and-paste of Nintendo IPs... They invented the videogames, the others have just copied... In any case, have fun! 🙂

  • kjax

    Great video, and looks awesome. Just have to say though, Eli you are frustratingly bad at video games lol

    • themostunclean

      Like the earlier comment said, it's difficult to carry on a conversation and play at the same time. I used to do a video blog with a friend where we would make fun of games while playing them and it easily cuts your average skill in half.

  • Ozzy111

    Do you think the dungeons are a little small but there were arrow targets in rooms they didn't go back to so the temple probably won't be as quick as that they are just going through it fast!

  • HandsomeLuke

    Wow this game looks awesome!! There have been a lot of good iPhone games this year but this looks like it might be the first great game of the year the stand out for Game of the year.

  • jForsythe

    Out in Australia now DLing now file size is 161mb or so it says on the description

  • HandsomeLuke

    So it's a cross between Zelda and Dark Souls! Love it!

  • jForsythe

    To the vid maker behind the boss frog was that a target up the steps that needed to be hit with a arrow or bomb.?. It looked like a green and yellow shield.
