Resonance of the Ocean
A sound reverberated from beyond the ocean.
At the edge of a desolate island, pick up what the waves wash ashore to make instruments. Use those instruments to answer the echoes heard from beyond the ocean.
In this hand-drawn world, enjoy a soothing soundscape formed by waves, footsteps and the sounds made from things washed up.
Resonance of the Ocean is a short adventure game you can play in 10 ~ 30min. This game was made in the 22nd unity1week, a Japanese game jam event.

Hey! I'm a professional English<> Brazilian Portuguese translator looking to expand my services into the game localization industry. I would love to translate this game for free in exchange for the permission to add it to my portfolio. Let me know if you're interested!
The art of the game is quite adorable and cute, visually pleasing along with the calming sounds of the waves in the background. The main difficulty is being able to isolate the sounds in the mind to try to replicate them and at least with a not very trained ear it is not so easy, even though it was a fun puzzle.
What was it that produced the sound beyond the sea? We don't know but I want to think that it was someone who expected the owner of the small house to respond, a sample of life to calm the heart in times of uncertainty. I don't know if by playing the whole song he understood that we were not the owner of the house or maybe he was convinced that it was okay, but I imagine that once he had an answer, his heart calmed down and therefore it was no longer necessary to keep trying to do Contact.
It's funny how the game is about replicating something and one theme that it seems to handle in the end is memory, there are experiences that once in a lifetime enjoyed in childhood and one tries to return to them, sometimes the memories are blurry and one doesn't know what he is looking for but he knows he has not seen or heard it again, I can only think that once that infant grows up, he will probably try to replicate the song in the old tower.
short game with an adorable art style. loved the sounds throughout the game
This is such a beautiful game. I studied music so it really resonated (lol) with me 🥰
If you want, I would love to offer a Portuguese a translation. 🌸
What a super cute game!! I love the sound effects you can create and the art is wonderful!! Yep, it's worth the short game play, just wish there were more challenges.
I am in love with the visual...
The game is really interesting and chill ~
Loved the asthetics of the game! If you have any future projects in mind please consider me as a programmer :D would love to work on such beatiful and calming experiences
check my published games, please :)
cute game . i loved.
you should make children's books! The atmosphere was very calming and homey.
Peaceful, with a sweet underlying tension. I'm glad I played this!
Short review posted on Mastodon:
Resonance of the Ocean is a short digital adventure game in which you collect objects to create sounds matching what you hear from across the ocean. The graphics are handdrawn and look pleasing, the sounds are soothing, and there's a soft tension in the mystery of the sounds. It's a downloadable game for Windows and takes about 10-30 minutes to play.
Amazing game with amazing art and music. Fantastic work!
This was an lovely absolutely way to start my day. Thank you so much
Þis is lovely.
I love it!
A lot of fun!
Honestly a really enriching experience!! I had trouble with the final combination, for one reason or another, but, regardless, this is a very relaxing, oddly comforting, strangely lonely experience. Overall, very much worth playing....!! My own favorite part is the melody that plays after you've finished each day; it's genuinely really quite beautiful in all its forms.
Thank you for making this game!!
a lovely and gentle game that makes me feel lonely after playing it.
Thank you for this beautiful game!

Looks like a fun game. Downloading it.
didn't have time to make a good thumbnail but........
i really enjoyed this game, I've been playing alot of horror games and i needed a brake so this game was just the right think for me but i did start to suspect that this game is also i horror game but that was just in my head, thank you Image Labo for making is awesome game and keep up the good work, oh and i might amke a video on ur other game in the future
Beautiful! Had a lot of fun playing it
I'm sure its a wonderful game but I had trouble opening it , something about extracting file ? anyone have any ideas about that I'm it just me not knowing how to electronic .
Oh, I think you have to extract it first. You can do that by clicking on the ".zip" file once, and then right clicking it. While hovering over the "send to" property, you can press ".zip". This will make both the data, and the ".exe" that reads the data in the same place. if you just double click the ".zip" file, and then the ".exe", you would be isolating the ".exe" without its data. That's why you need to extract the ".zip".
Hope I was helpful!
Beautiful little game! Loved the art and sound design!
GOOD FOR MEMORY AND MUSIC HEARING TUNING
It was such a sweet simple game. I loved playing every second of it. reading the litte notes made me so intrigued in the story. thank you!
The art is cute and the sound effect is nice! Love it!
I loved it!
cute art style with crisp line art and pastel colours, the game's main mechanic of trying to get the right sound was fun to mess around as all the sounds were pleasant to the ears. The game's world was pretty interesting with the marks left behind by what I assume to be people who were here before the player character, I'm also curious to see what's to the east of the playable section of the island.
English localization was pretty good, though I think the message on swapping items should be changed from:
"Replace [new item] with [current item]"
"Replace [current item] with [new item]"
just for grammar, its not a big deal ^^
I'll be sure to buy the extra content soon too.
Thank for playing!
And I really appreciate you telling me about the English localization issue. I'll try to fix that soon!
love it love it love it. the art, the music, just the game as a whole. it kinda reminds me of a studio ghibli movie
What a lovely little game. The art, music, and story were all written beautifully.
the art... and the sounds.... it's a beautiful game indeed
