Oceanhorn [$7.99] has always stylized itself as something of a console game on mobile with its production values, and it's going to have one more notch to add to its "like a console game" belt: it's getting a "Game of the Year" edition. With the number of gaming publications out there, pretty much any well-regarded game can get a "game of the year" edition and many console/PC titles do, to the point where multiple titles in one year declare themselves "game of the year." This is perhaps the first time a mobile game has attempted this kind of marketing.


Unlike most "Game of the Year" editions, Oceanhorn's GOTY edition will actually be a free update to the main game. The previously-revealed fishing will play a big part in the GOTY update, being key to discover the new places and secrets added to the game. Existing save games will be compatible with the new update, which doesn't have a set release date quite yet.

    Hopefully I'll get a sale on this with the update as we'll. but it's on my must pick up next list regardless .

    • GaZ-OiD

      It's worth every penny/cent without any sale, trust me!!


    • rewind

      Wait for the sale. You could save 5 bucks for 500 gems in Clash of Clans.

      • Themostunclean

        Ha! Thanks, I needed that 🙂

      • MajorCheevo

        The irony if that statement is I also play Clash of Clans and Boom Beach lol

      • rewind

        Lol, then you should definitely wait for the sale! I never buy games these days because those gems and diamonds are so tempting. And I would buy Boom Beach diamonds, it's so expensive to hurry upgrades in Clash.

    much wow

  • the_rebel14

    Nothing against the game itself (it's a great game) but who declared it game of the year? Was it Toucharcade, someone else, or just them?

    • pv13

      apple named it indie game of the year.

      • the_rebel14

        Ok, thanks!

      • awp69

        And it was also named the Indie GoTY by Touch Arcade's forums.

      • the_rebel14

        LOL Seems legit!

    I have said this before but feel it's worth repeating, when a Zelda clone takes on Zelda and holds it's own and does not look or play out of place then you have a great game that needs to be played even at full price..... GaZ

    Damn this news really made me want to get this. But I have exams coming in a week.

    • mothy

      You can always retake exams.

      • rimN

        Wise words.
        Too bad this is my 3rd time.

    Awesome sauce!!

  • spsummer

    I had a quick question about the game, How are the controls? Is it touch screen like BattleHeart or is it a virtual joystick? Thanks

    • marcanthony0313

      Combination of both

    • Design by Adrian

      They are good!

  • curtneedsaride

    I highly respect this developer's work of art AND their customer appreciation. One price for a game that still hasn't stopped giving! Please, if you haven't picked it up, do so... even if only to support a developer doing it the old-school, IAP-free, (right) way.

  • Chris Brady

    Bought it at full price, totally worth it.

  • Michael Graham Jr

    i wish consoles games would do free dlc like mobile games

  • frathcke

    Oceanhorn is an excellent game and I am looking forward to the update. Still, to me Oceanhorn is Zelda: The Wind Waker with a different story. They took a lot of 'inspiration' from Wind Waker. But then again, maybe that is why I like it that much ^_^

  • Nycteris

    I just bought this last week and am totally excited that the developer keeps adding new stuff! Great game!
