A peaceful narrative experience, in which the only objective is to satisfy your curiosity.<br><br>Explore an ocean dream world, in which time passes even when you are not there, visit forgotten islands and piece together memories – some even existing beyond the screen of your device.<br><br><br>“The Sailor’s Dream is a novella, a folk EP, and an art installation wrapped into one app ... It’s an inspired example of what storytelling can be in the 21st century and the way modern technology can shine new light on well-worn conventions.” - A.V. Club<br> <br>“Its lonely, bittersweet tale—told in a wonderfully unique mix of approaches—is the best storytelling I've ever played on my iPad.” - Kotaku<br> <br>“It's an experience that's entirely about the narrative, but one uniquely built for smartphones and tablets. The peaceful visuals, the wonderful music, the sharp writing, and the simple interactive toys all go towards creating an atmosphere and telling a story.” - The Verge<br> <br>“... you can easily wander for hours through The Sailor’s Dream making music, playing it not like a game, but as an instrument ... If you are looking for a space to contemplate, a place to linger, a path to walk in patient consideration, you will find yourself at home in The Sailor’s Dream for quite some time.” - Kill Screen<br> <br>“A world-in-miniature put in the palm of your hands, which rewards you for your exploration of it with sensory delight. And perhaps most powerfully of all, pushes you to feel deeply for its inhabitants.” - Gamezebo

Ignore what Stevo3895 (or something similar) says. This game doesn't take a month to complete. I don't have an idea what that person is saying... he/she is continuing to find more parts of the story for a month? At most you would need a week, but of course you can just "cheat" and change the time on your phone. I mean, I liked it (finished playing) and the story behind it was interesting. Very interesting idea, like Device 6. Thing is, I bought this (and Device 6) for 99¢ since it's on sale... so to me, it's a good deal. But I don't think I would spend any more to buy this game (or Device 6). I'm not being ignorant here- I was surprised that I finished it already (besides the temporal parts of the story) so I went online and looked at the walk-throughs. The results? You definitely don't need a month for this. A good game overall but I'm not sure if you want to buy this if you don't have a lot of money to spend. Especially if this game isn't 99¢ anymore. (I'm gonna talk about Device 6 now) Personally, I feel like Device 6 was a better use of my 99¢ than this game but both are great. Haha... I bought Device 6 and finished it. The game restarts everything but you can't really play it again so I'm just letting my friends and family play it. I don't want to just get rid of it, so I'm planning to squeeze every worth of the 99¢ I spent on Device 6. (Sorry, sorta went on a tangent here but it's not like the two games are completely unrelated).

This "game" is not so much of a game as it is an interactive experience with the story of a man, a woman, and a young girl who all seem to be part of a pseudo-family unit and something terrible happens and sets them all on different paths after a tragic separation. This story requires you to come back on different days of the week for different pieces of the story and even check back in at different times of the day when new pieces of the puzzle will become evident. For those of you morons that bought this app 13 hours ago and having given a 2-star rating: you're quite dense and clearly haven't experienced all that this story has to offer. I have had this app for a month and I am still receiving chunks of the story and working on getting all the pieces of the puzzle in place. If you've gone through the "entire" app in less than a day, you have only just begun to experience what the Sailor's Dream is, and you need to take more time to evaluate what remains.

This is a gorgeous work of art offering simple meditative asylum in today's troubling times. I think it's fantastic, albeit ironic, that an app is being used to take us to a world where technology has very little meaning or importance. Peaceful, wistful music, stunning artwork & meaningful narrative-all the bells & whistles of what we expect from the word "app" stripped away, leaving us with our own thoughts & feelings. Thank you Simogo for redefining the word "game" & for showing us there can be more to it than points, boss battles & jump scares. I loved making music with cubes, distorting sound with gems or letting fireflies out of their jars. There really IS no "end game" here but, as any sailor can tell you, the joy's not just the destination, but in the journey itself.

This app is a beautifully designed work of art. It’s a collection of intriguing memories meant to be patiently explored and pieced together into a whole story at the very end. I find this concept very relaxing and interesting at the same time. I think it would have been better if all the musical “toys” in the game, like the hanging cubes and the cool stuff in the observatory actually had a purpose to advance the story. I found myself going back and forth between them, trying to figure out what they were supposed to change in the game, only to find out later that they had no purpose except to be played with. I can forgive this because the app is so darn beautiful.

This isn’t like most games — it’s more of an interactive story that unfolds over time, literally. You have to open the app on each day of the week and at different times of the day to get each piece of the story. The graphics and soundtrack are lovely and aptly dreamlike, and the story is quite melancholy — this is a great “game” to open late at night before bed, or in quiet, meditative moments. All of the 1-star reviews were left by people looking for a different kind of experience and feeling disappointed when their expectations weren’t met, and they’re not really fair assessments of the app itself.
