"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
Acclaimed original soundtrack that closely ties to the story
An espresso execution with zero filler and no time drains
To the moon tells a wonderful story, of life, love and loss. It's more a piece of art than a video game. Anyone who enjoys a good story will enjoy this game. If you're looking for cutting edge graphics, or state of the art gameplay this won't be for you. In fact this game is pretty devoid of gameplay outside of moving from one scene to the next. The game has some very simplistic puzzles which can typically be solved in under 10 moves. Although game isn't about defeating enemies, gaining experience or collecting loot. You play as a pair of... well they are called Doctors but I think they are more or less Scientist. Their job is to go into someone memories, unlock the meories and use them to rebuild the memories in such a way as to fulfil their dying patients wish.. This story centers around a dying man named Johnny who wished to visit the moon.. hence the games title.. To the Moon. Along the way of recovering Johnny's memory a wonderful story of love, and loss unfolds before your eyes.. This game is very good, it tells an amazing story, which if you enjoy stories, you'll love, if you are the pew pew pew, kill enemies, collect loot, gain levels type of guy, you should stay far away from this. The game will last about 2 hours give or take a few minutes for solving the puzzles. The ending will bring out the feelings in even the most hardened gamer. Although as good as the story is, it can be pretty predicatable, although that isn't really a bad thing.. I'd recommend this game highly, great story, great music, and generally enjoyable enough..
To the Moon is a short story-driven game with simple but charming visuals. Gameplay is almost non-existent, as you just have to move your characters in order to progress. That's because TtM is all about the story, which you can think of as an interesting take on the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind formula. The writing is excellent and the soundtrack adequate. Prepare to be moved to tears.
To the Moon is one of the most simple yet heartwarming indie titles on Steam. The story and music are absolutely beautiful and go well together. The characters are realistic in behavior and easy to relate to on a personal level, you can practically empathize with the characters and feel what they feel. The graphics are old school but it does not take away from the quality of the game and adds a feeling of nostalgia. It does not have multiple endings but the story is so powerful that it does not need more than one ending to be great. You can explore the world and interact with items. If you haven't played To the Moon yet then you are missing out, it's an absolute must have! Pros: -Beautiful Story -Great Soundtrack -Fun media references -Fun/ believable characters Cons: -Really can't think of any but if you are picky about graphics then the old school graphics could be a con.
Every time I review a videogame I'm more focused in talking about gameplay that any other feature. When we play a videogame we are playing, not watching a movie o reading a book, but this time it is different. You expect a good story when you play some concrete genres like point and click adventure games or visual novels. To the Moon is just a linear adventure made with the RPG Maker that tolds one of the most beautiful stories you can find in a videogame (or other art). Gameplay is anecdotic, and you'll only need to get from point A to point B to see how the story develops and solve some puzzles to "activate mementos". I actually would have enjoyed To The Moon even more without those interactive parts. The more I write about the game the less surprise you'll have, so, go for it if you are looking for an amazing story.
Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed this masterpiece. Of course, there's little to no gameplay and the graphics are below average (even for a pixel-ish game), but the story... Oh my bloody god. Its combination with flawless soundtrack will make sure you'll never forget about this game after you finish it. To the Moon is a must-have title. 99/100... only because there's a sequel on its way.
