GameOver (Greece) (Jun 26, 2012)
Το The Sea Will Claim Everything, λοιπόν, ζητά από τον παίκτη του να χαλαρώσει και να το παίξει χωρίς βιασύνη, ανταμείβοντάς τον πλουσιοπάροχα γι'αυτό. Είναι ένα παιχνίδι που πρέπει να βιώνεται και να απολαμβάνεται αργά, όχι να παίζεται με φρενήρεις ρυθμούς και ακατάσχετα clicks, ενώ το σενάριο, το καλλιτεχνικό του στυλ και η μουσική του ανασύρουν από τη μνήμη όνειρα που έχουμε ξεχάσει ή που ποτέ δεν ξέραμε ότι είχαμε.

For those looking for an adventure with a sense of wonder, The Sea Will Claim Everything (available for download exclusively from the official website) is a must-have, clearly illustrating that the latest 3D graphics and full voice-work are not required for a compelling adventure. There are some minor flaws, but the fine art style, extensive cultural background and delightful music come together in an altogether pleasing whole. Whilst it is possible to simply plough through the storyline, the wealth of background in both dialogue and pictures make this a game that rewards players willing to sit back and take their time. As a fast reader it took me four hours to complete, though you could easily spend longer, so mileage may vary widely between players. In taking the leap to a commercial release, this game takes a world born free to new creative levels, and I hope to be able to return to the Lands of Dream again some day.

If you love Kyratzes' earlier adventures in the Lands of Dream, or even if you just want a rich storytelling experience, you're going to love this one too. Best enjoyed sunk as low in your chair as you can get with a glass of your favourite beverage and no hurry whatsoever, The Sea Will Claim Everything is the best possible way to enjoy an evening. With a variety of unusual settings you'll want to spend your time exploring and a cast of characters memorable for more than just their strange designs. There are times when it really feels like everything from the setting to the dialogue is speaking directly to you, and for those brief windows the Lands of Dream becomes as tangible as the world outside your window. Highly recommended.

I stuck with and found pleasure in The Sea Will Claim Everything. I stuck with Anathem too, mainly because I’m an admirer of Stephenson’s output. The same is true of Kyratzes and while this is his best work in the peculiar digital tourist destination that is The Lands of Dream, I don’t find it half as exciting as his more experimental output. Still, it’s a first commercial venture so cheap it’s almost free and currently available bundled together with some very good company indeed.
 
Gameplay (Benelux) (Aug 31, 2012)
The Sea Will Claim Everything is een intrigerend point & click adventure dat eruit ziet als een kinderboek maar erg volwassen thema's als de financiële en politieke crisis in Europa aansnijdt. Hierbij worden filosofische overpeinzingen niet geschuwd en zijn referenties naar het werk van Eco, Marx en Plato schering en inslag. Maar geen paniek, er zit ook wat Eddie Izzard in! Als speler ontmoet je de meest fantastische wezens zoals inktvissen, draken en boomwezens en moet je de inwoners van de Fortunate Isles helpen een dictator omver te werpen. Geniet ervan aan een traag en haast meditatief tempo.
