“Oceanus was the Titan of Water. When I started creating the skin I always wanted to create something that would be enjoyable, flexible and that would expand Showtime experience in new ways and Oceanus is all about that.” -Facanferff
“Special Thanks to Tyrant for beta testing and giving fresh ideas” -Facanferff
This new skin really makes the user experience much more enjoyable and it also takes the Showtime plugins to a whole new level!
