Product Description

Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live, all the way from the very beginning... but only in their patients' heads.

Due to the severity of the operation, the new life becomes the last thing the patients remember before drawing their last breath. Thus, the operation is only done to people on their deathbeds, to fulfill what they wish they had done with their lives, but didn’t.

This particular story follows their attempt to fulfill the dream of an elderly man, Johnny. With each step back in time, a new fragment of Johnny's past is revealed. As the two doctors piece together the puzzled events that spanned a life time, they seek to find out just why the frail old man chose his dying wish to be what it is. And Johnny's last wish is, of course... to go to the moon.

"A unique and engrossing story-driven experience

An easy to use realistic physics means an unprecedented car handling in a game for everyone that is both easy to learn and hard to master. Innovative mix between adventure game elements and classic RPG aesthetics

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best narratives of any video game! April 4, 2013
This game has one of the absolute best stories of any game in the past decade. The gameplay is a little lacking (more of an interactive story than a "game), in some places even confusing (as with the horse scene), but is totally redeemed by the story. Please play this game! It only takes about 6 hours total, but you'll feel every emotion the creators intended (even for a stone-hearted guy like myself). The music is also beautifully composed and really sets the scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curse this game! May 11, 2013
Curse it! Curse it for making me cry in public! I demand you play this game too so I don't have to be the only one to suffer! Also, it's really, REALLY good. Not as a game, mind you. There are only two scenes in the entire game which involve anything remotely similar to gameplay. Most of the time you spend it walking or reading, and the gameplay is more a means to an end that an end by itself.

So yeah, as a game is not very good, but the story... the story is fantastic and it will keep you guessing and understanding and loving the characters and CRYING. I can't state this enough: this game WILL make you cry. So if you're one of those care bears who finds himself without enough ability to make the villain who's making everyone grumpy understand the power of love, just make him play this game, and he will reform and start being colored and burping rainbows and stuff.

And the music is not helping things along. If you're trying not to cry, I mean. The music is very emotional and really good. I recommend you get the soundtrack and take it along with you if you're trying to pretend to be sad in a trial but can't really get to cry. The judge will believe every tear that comes from your eyes.

So, the basic story is: you play as Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts, who are in the bussiness of granting last wishes. They operate a device that enters a dying person's dreams, explore them and change around the facts in order to grant them a fantasy of their greatest dream coming true, so they can die happy, since to them the fantasy will feel real.

For this particular job, they are trying to give the dream to an old man named Johnny, whose dream is, of course, to go to the Moon.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story August 16, 2013
To those of you who enjoyed the classic Michel Gondry/Charlie Kaufman film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", there's a really good chance you'll dig on what To the Moon is doing here. To the Moon is a short and sweet game that tells the story of Johnny Wyles, an old man who is dying. As per his final wish, two representatives of the Sigmund Corp., a company with the technology to alter peoples' memories, make a trip to his seaside home to grant him his final wish...take him to the moon. However, they are not literally sending him to the moon, but are altering his memories to make him believe that he actually got to go to the moon, which was his lifetime dream. The majority of the game consists of the player taking control of the charismatic Sigmund Corp. employees Dr.'s Rosaline and Watts, as they tinker around inside Johnny's memories, and end up getting much more than they bargained for with this job.

As you can imagine given the premise of this game, it's a very emotional story. It can be very sad, melancholy, funny, contemplative, and uplifting. But like so many other recent indie games, To the Moon thrives by making story the prime, central focus of its game mechanics. The trip through Wyles mind is a roller coaster, perfectly conveyed by very intelligent writing and one of the most beautiful musical scores in recent memory. Given that the game was made with a very low budget using the RPG Maker software, it can be a bit rough around the edges, but the 16 bit visuals closely recall the great JRPG's of the Super Nintendo, where story was becoming a defining factor of the video game experience. There is some light puzzle solving and exploration to be had here, but the majority of the game is soaking up this tale of love, loss, regret, and hope. The rise in quality of interactive storytelling over the last couple of years has been stunning, and there have been very few games made that tell a tale as effectively as To the Moon does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Storytelling November 22, 2013
I didn't exactly know what to expect when picking up this game. I love indie games and supporting them and the story for this one really intrigued me. I didn't know what I was in for.

The visual style harkens back to the old 16-bit days of yore. SuperNES style. For some, maybe that isn't appealing. Trust me on this, it doesn't detract from the game at all. There is amazing beauty in such simplicity.

Gameplay is pretty limited to your character(s) walking around, finding information on the person the story revolves around and the events of his life. Lots of reading, lots of story. This is what you are getting into and that is what makes it excellent.

The story is where this game really shines. In a way, it's an interactive book. With amazing music, funny and interesting characters and a story that keeps you interested through the entire game. You'll travel back through memories of a dying man, from when he is an old man all the way through to his childhood. You get a look into his life and why it went where it did, trying to find the reason why he wants to go to the moon.

I can't recommend this game enough. It definitely plays towards a certain demographic of gamers, but it definitely hits the mark on delivery. I can't wait for the next game from this developer. Give the game a shot, especially for the price, and you won't be disappointed. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll smile and be touched by the beauty this game provides about the life of man who wants to go To the Moon.
