About This Game

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.

An Impassioned And Engrossing Story // A Perfect 'Rainy Day' Title

+ Astonishing soundtrack that will stay with you long after completion
+ Successful injections of humor and self-awareness pervade throughout the tale
+ Memento puzzles are a breath of fresh air, and are placed in a way that does not offset the pacing or the narrative
+ Has a lot of emotional depth; at times, it is really quite overpowering
+ Narrative is novel and well-written
+ Characters are relatable, charming, and their interactions have a deep impact on the player

- No audio/visual/control options of any kind
- No alternate endings or unlockable content; in addition, the extremely linear playthrough leaves little in the way of replay value

The storyline was beautiful and funny. It made me feel as if true love no matter the obstacles or hardships you may face, it is worth tackling them together. Sometimes one may make sacrifices that others may not understand, not even the one they might of been intended for but its always for a dream.

Love is such a big word and can be expressed in many forms. The story really felt almost like a novella (soap opera)
One moment they are jerking your tears, the next you are smiling and that is what made it more interesting to continue playing. The twist in this game were on point and with some patience it really pays off to follow the game through the ending. Brace yourself though, ninja onions will pop out of nowhere towards the end!

Happiness is best shared amongst those you love the most.. family, friends, and that special someone.

When I first started playing this game my goal was to get that one achievement. Easy perfect game right there so I went with it. But wow.. What an emotional experience. It's not one of those other games you play and then just forget about them. You might think back to this game and relate to it everyday. Simply amazing it's worth every penny, loved the story :)
