"To the Moon is a game you must play. Those four hours pack a real punch, inviting you to consider just how a single event can change your destiny. For now, you should take control of your own destiny and play To the Moon. You'll be glad you did." - Gamespot.com
"The convincing banter between the two doctors, the tale of John's carer and her relationship with her children, the stories of friends and families and how they intersect along the passage of life... To the Moon takes the details of human life in its stride, and delivers them with a breezy effortlessness." - Eurogamer.net
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 story-driven experience

Very simple graphics and a much used plot device may not seem like great selling points, but this game transcends them beautifully. The plot is well written, and the story is emotionally engaging. The sound track compliments the story perfectly, and the writers did an excellent job there. This game is one of the most memorable of it's genre. And leaves you feeling torn between sadness over the story, and satisfaction from finishing this game. The game is child friendly.
Why I want to cry so often?Sealmancer | March 21, 2015 | See all Sealmancer's reviews »
Story is short, sometimes messed up, and really funny (if you get some of the jokes). I felt like I was one of them. It was touching, sad, complicated. Such a "simple" game, but so many emotions. I don't know if any other game will be so close to my heart than this little, sweet masterpiece. I learned so many things from this, and finally I started to act, like every day could be my last day. Even if I cried (a lot) I understood, that happiness can be next to me, no matter what other people think. If you like a kind of drama games, or games with great story To the Moon is for you. Better love story than twilight ;)
Perfect drama game.eekar1 | Jan. 7, 2015 | See all eekar1's reviews »
To The Moon is more a work of art than a game itself , from the moment you click " start " you enter a seemingly simple story but with time unfolds and becomes one of the most exciting stories of your life. Graphics are not everything and To The Moon is living proof of that history mixed the soundtrack gives you a sense of immersion in the game as it is fully synchronized with the events in-game . To The Moon is one game that will make you laugh at times and other cry, a game you MUST play.
For lovers of a good StoryVenhiem | Jan. 6, 2015 | See all Venhiem's reviews »
This game... this game is an emotional joyride. The main content is story, a sad story about the sad happenings in life. So unless you're ready to cry once or twice while playing a game, don't get it. THe graphics, the atmosphere, the environment... it's nothing top-notch, state-of-the-art, but it does it's work and it does it damn well. Everything, every little thing contributes to build up that sadness. The music is brilliant, slow and melodic to fit the theme. The controls, well, it's an RPGmaker game, and there's nothing wrong with the controls. As I said, it's not an action, or even much of an exploration game. It's all in the story. But it's better than visual novels, at least for me. Seriously, this game is a must-play (focus on must and play) for all lovers of good stories in games. This game deserves all the praise it's getting. 10/10 Must buy.

I'm gonna come straight out and say it - I cried when I played this. A lot. Now, this game is far from the most exciting ever made, but what it lacks in excitement and interactivity, it more than makes up for in it's storytelling prowess. It is so dependant upon it's storyline that I, unfortunately, can't say much about it without spoiling it, but let me assure, between it's well-done art style, it's captivating soundtrack (Easily one of the best in recent gaming history, if not ever) and it's extraordinary storytelling capabilities, I can guarantee that you aren't going to regret buying this. Essential
