So this is Sean's flashback? It looks like a really cool area to explore :)

Yup, this is supposed to be the infamous town of Pripyat', Ukraine - unfortunately notable for the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It's not a faithful geographic recreation by any means, but rather an attempt to recreate the atmosphere of a dead city... or as Kristina puts it, 'a cautionary tale of science abuse that should never be forgotten' :bow:

So there's two reasons why the map is called 'I Remember' - first, it's a reference to how Sean first met Kristina, and second, it's my nod to the Chernobyl disaster, which ties in disturbingly well with all the ecological themes I'm exploring in OCEAN :bow:

Once again you have a deep significance and meaning hidden within your work. I love it :love:
:clap: In fact, the hidden meanings and back story so to speak, might be my favorite things about this whole project :D

Thank you sweetie! :meow: I know what you mean - it's like having mythology within mythology (as the Nostalgia Critic put it). And yes, this is all intentional - the main mysteries of the plot actually revolve around things that happened before, rather than things that happen in the end (but the ending will be full of twists, I assure) :bow:

On the other hand, I'm now scared to update the Trivia page on the OCEAN Wiki, because there's been so many updates to all the references and Easter eggs since I last edited it ^^;

Lol, have fun tackling those updates, it sounds like you'll be at it for a while. I've faced things like that before :faint:

Interesting map, I suppose he's only having flashbacks or hallucinations but it's a cool concept for a stage.

Heh, ironically it's going to be the lest 'playable' map in there... for obvious reasons :P

Well, now I see the reason. XD
By the way you made me remember a scene from FF7, the protaginist enters a "place" where he can see his own memories and you can play them, if you do anything he didn't did at that time a message appears saying "No, I don't think I did that...".

Well, there's plenty of other games that had such parts :bow: Oni, Marathon Infinity, Max Payne, the opening to early versions of Marathon 1 fan remake (M1A1); well, even MAP01 of OCEAN :P

Sure, I know flashbacks stages are common, I meant like making flashbacks that are barely playable because of a specific storylines.

For this particular flashback, I was inspired by that map in Soldier Of Fortune 2, where you have to walk through an infested village. For some weird reason, other than that brief map, the rest of the game was pretty crappy :rofl:
