Rock Paper Shotgun's Philippa Warr wrote a nice little piece on this game! ACE!

"Secrets of the Waves now has a delicious storm"

Hopefully not a spoiler, but i got to the place with faces that was WSW, but flipped the boat on the rocks and now I can only go due South - was I anywhere close to the end?

Thoughts: I liked the storm - maybe some sheet lightning wouldn't go amiss; some wind/rain noise too, though not at the expense of the music; a sun/moon would be a nice touch too; maybe make the compass smaller and dimmer; a boat reset/flip button; shark fins/flotsam/jetsam (I saw your wildlife comment); press to go faster rather than hold to go forwards

Great points, and great ideas there.

I've never cap-sized the boat! Gulp. I wish I could see a video of you doing it! I should try it myself. As you say, perhaps just a button to reset the boat would be the easiest solution.

You were very close to the end. :D

I want to add everything you mentioned! I played through with my friend Jim yesterday (the other half of Secret Exploration Society who made the music), and many of these same suggestions came up... flotsam and jetsam, a sun and moon that rise and set... I'll try to come back and add things like that!

I've just released Version 2.0, which is much more polished, and features a big stormy section!
