"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
Innovative mix between adventure game elements and classic RPG aesthetics

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

Seriously, this game has the best story I have ever seen on a video-game. The gameplay is nice, and especially very comic, but also very sweet, full of easy puzzles, very funny moments, you even fight against "zombies"! The story is just wonderful, every detail on it makes it the best story on a video-game for me. Unfortunately, I can't reveal anything about it, because every detail may contain a spoiler. This is a game that touches your emotions and feelings, and needs to be played alone, without distractions, for the best experience. Be prepared to cry... a lot! The game has a little funny DLC (actually is a patch that adds extra content to the game), but to go there you have to go to the To The Moon Fórum, on Steam, and see one of the topics which has a guide on how to play the DLC. This is a must play for visual novel lovers, so go ahead and play it! ;)
Very touching, a must play ;)Riscas21 | Nov. 14, 2014 | See all Riscas21's reviews »
I am currently playing To the Moon, and I have to say, this game is amazing. The gameplay is funny and has a lot of jokes, and the story is very sweet ;) I cry everytime when I play this, this is maybe the best story I have ever seen on a video-game on my life, it's really touching, believe me, it looks like an rpg, but To the Moon is much more than a common rpg, it's a masterpiece, it touches your feelings and emotions, it's just a game, but a game that teaches you that the simplest things are the best and teaches you the main values of life, this is a must play game you cant miss!
Made in RPG Maker, but it is not an RPG.reginleifx | Oct. 31, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »
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.

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
