"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.

What can I say about "To The Moon" that has not been said already? It is a wonderful experience, with a beautiful soundtrack, great characters, and it is able to soften the hardest hearts, it will leave you weeping for hours after you finish it. Now, the game feels more like a visual novel than a videogame. It was made in RPG maker, but it features no fights (Well, except for one half an hour into the game), it certainly is not an RPG. It could even be considered a point and click adventure. It features a few puzzles here and there, but they are easy to solve. To wrap up, this is a game you should get as soon as you possibly can. I have heard of some people who did not like it, because of its graphical style, or how little gameplay it had, so you should probably keep that in mind.
An Emotional Rideemptyhaven | Oct. 20, 2014 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
This game made me cry more times than I'm willing to admit. It's largely story driven, so anyone who expects a more action-type game is looking at the wrong genre. But it shows how great writing can sometimes be more than enough to propel a game forward. From the setting to the whole tone and feel of every level, I really felt drawn into the characters and story.
A MUST play for everyone. I love this game

This pixelated old-school game has a history that goes inside your heart and blow it up into a rain of emotions and feelings that make you cry like a newborn baby.

This game has one of the most sad stories that i 'd ever played, seriously, i almost cry when i finished it. I used to check the reviews of this game before and said "nah it couldn't be so much sad", but i was wrong for god's sake!!!
But... before you try to get it, you most know something important first, this is more like a Visual Novel than a game for me, because the puzzles are really easy, the gameplay is lineal, you just play it to know more about the history... even sometimes i was really getting bored of playing but when i was close to the ending i was like "Jesus i must see what's coming next"
I think everyone should play this little game, it's really worth, and if you cry at the ending, try to smash something or watch some nasty things, i don't know, but don't feel bad for Jhonny, he's on a happy place now ;_;

None have captured my emotions from the very start, with every aspect of the game contributing in one way or another, in a very long time since this game.
The ambiance, clever and thoughtful writing, and just spot on scoring, all come together to create a game that will leave you wailing. I don't want to spoil anything for the prospective player, but I suggest that as you play this game, really sit and read through the text. Let the story build itself around you. There is much to the game's writing that expresses the full scope of emotion present in us.
If a game can draw out every emotion from within you, then don't you think that this is a powerful game? It's a great game and everyone should play it.
