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.

Truly a moving experience. I actually cried during this game, twice. I recommend heavily, although one shouldn't go in expecting many gameplay mechanics. This is a story you get to vicariously experience. Definitely worth the buy.

Cliche and short, with only 1 likeable character. Annoying heavy-handed treatment of autism and the whole point of the game is to give the biggest ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ever a meaningless happy memory.

Oh and the controls are TERRIBLE. Making precise movements was awful (especially with a controller) and visually it did a bad job of showing paths/boundaries. Also there's a *completely* pointless and repetitive minigame that you have to go through for no reason every time you jump to a new area.

Waste of both time and $2.

I don't write Steam Reviews. This game made me do it. Awesome game and makes want to come back for more. The characters were well designed, the music was really pulling you into the game. This is a masterpiece of an RPG Maker game and this is worth more than I bought it for. Good job and more power to everyone.

Think of the best pieces of art in visual arts, media and literature.
Think Mona Lisa, think the Titanic, think about the works of Charles Dickens. To The Moon is the videogame equivelent to those pieces of art. This game is so captivating, so story rich and all so beautiful I feel incredibly selfish and bad for purchasing the game while on sale.

Do yourself a favor and buy this game along with the soundtrack. It's honestly one of the best games I've ever played. Flawless in everyway.

An enjoyable story that gets soppy and cliche, but in all the right ways. The soundtrack fits this perfectly as well. Good way to spend $2 and 3.5 hours.

Put aside 3-4 hours and treat it like a great big soppy movie.

Fantastic experience with a very fitting soundtrack, would recommend to anyone.

Got this game from a friend. But honestly, I'd pay 20$ for it.
It starts off slow, but after about 30 minutes of playtime, you are exposed to the most beautiful, thrilling and exciting story.
It got me to reconnect with some of my long forgotten dreams, and it made me cry. A lot.
The soundtrack is beautiful, and I still listen to it whenever I'm down.

If you finish this game and don't like it, you are dead to me.

Sad and funny, serious and light-hearted, marveling and tragic, this game knows how to take you on a feel trip.

Bravo! Bravo!

Beautiful! Emotionally captivating. Please make more!

Controlls are a bit iffy - I switched between mouse/keyboard and gamepad frequently; Doesnt take away from the experience though.

Beautiful and Sad. It made me cry in first hour itself. It is worth every bit for the story.



Finished it in one sitting. It will leave you speechless and with tears. One of the most touching stories of all time.

Slightly clunky controls and occasional glitches are completely overshadowed by the amazing story. I don't think i've been this moved by a game since The Walking Dead S1. It doesn't take very long to complete but feels longer than it's length and can drag at times. The gameplay itself is mediocre rpgmaker type point and click with some arbitrary puzzles placed throughout. This in no way deteriates from the story though, with a steady ramp up to a heart wrenching finale this is one of the best stories i've ever played.

much more like an interactive experience than a typical game.
A very well written and executed story, filled with very dramatic and funny moments, accompanied by an amazing and mesmerizing soundtrack.
An experience not to be missed!
Heartily recommended.
