"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.

This game is a unique experience among rpgs... or "RPGS"... this game is more a tale than a game... and its great! The Good: +Awesome Story. +Beautiful Pixel art. +Great characters. +Awesome... and I mean AWESOME soundtrack. +It made you feel good... by not killing random things.
The bad: -Horrible gameplay -Lineal... super lineal -Some times... so random... and this is worth mention it.
Overall is a great game, worth buying it full price! I would recommend it to everyone!
Atmospheric. A great way to spend a day inside.Nigee | Aug. 22, 2014 | See all Nigee's reviews »
This game plays out as more of an interactive story. It has bits of humor, but where it really shines is creating an emotional connection to what is going on in the game. The game plays out simple enough, do some dialogue, explore a bit, progress the story. Nothing too complicated. But as you begin to find each new piece of the puzzle, you begin to reveal more and more about the man whose memories you are exploring. This game is best played in as few sittings as you can manage. Let the story build up and pull you into it; you will not be disappointed.
The game that penetrating deep into the soul.Suppression555 | Aug. 18, 2014 | See all Suppression555's reviews »
The combination of piano and story - an incredibly moving story. Travel memoirs ... Youth, youth, childhood. First love and childhood dreams, resentment, despair. You poured into the game, you become part of it, you know, that everything depends only on you, that only you will be able to correct the turn of events, arrange all the same meeting of the protagonist with his cherished dream. It seems that the most incredible desires can be fulfilled by magic. Magic game, insanely nice and wonderful. Play it is to each. Understand the essence of life and understand what you need to always believe in your dream. And most importantly - love. After all, she only sent the protagonist to the moon. Where they will meet one day. Must meet.
I love you. To the moon and back.
Great story, great soundtrack, great game.x0nex | July 24, 2014 | See all x0nex's reviews »
To The Moon by Freebird games. This is such a great game. One of my favourites for sure. Don't watch the videos on YouTube, just play it. It might look basic/boring, but play it to the end and you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend playing it if you haven't already. [Overall rating 8.5/10]
Gameplay is pretty average. There isn't much exciting about the gameplay. You click to move, search for objects, click objects, talk to NPCs and that is about it. Don't expect a lot from the gameplay but what it lacks here, it excels in storyline and audio. I believe the gameplay is meant to be quite simple so that more people can experience the story. Even though gameplay is a big deal in video games, this game was amazing still. [Gameplay rating 6/10]
Storyline was something else. Beautiful. When you finish the game and reach the credits, you want to applaud... after you've wiped away the tears of course. If' you're just starting this game, I can't stress how important it is to play this game to the end just for that experience alone. The story alone makes up for the simple gameplay and graphics. [Story rating 10/10]
Graphics are retro style, like something from a SNES time RPG. Don't expect something cutting-edge from the graphics, but they are detailed enough for you to see facial expressions and catch the emotions needed. [Graphics rating 8/10]
Audio is amazing. I find that I'm listening to the full soundtrack regularly. The song, "Everythings Alright" by Laura Shigihara still gives me the feels when I hear it. Amazing voice, and amazing soundtrack. Audio often helps a great deal with infusing emotions into a story, this is definitely the case with To The Moon. [Audio rating 10/10]
Instead of showing gameplay or epic moments in the game. I will leave you with a YouTube link for the full soundtrack. Enjoy.

Breath-taking storykaprCZ | July 14, 2014 | See all kaprCZ's reviews »
I must admit that at the beginning, it looked a bit boring but then I focused more to story. The story is very interesting and touching. It's about old dying man and his memories. His relatives wants he could die in peace so they'll call two scientists who can change his memories to make him feel better and fulfil his big dream. You play as the two scientists and looking for pieces of his memories. During the game, the story is more and more interesting and sometimes also very sad. I would never say that RPG game like this (game where you see the world from above) can have such a strong story. Maybe it's not about playing as I thought before I played it, it's just like reading a book with moving pictures where you can control characters.
I can highly recommend for all people who like breath-taking stories and who don't mind if the game is not only about playing.
