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.

Hesitant at first, but once I started I couldn't stop. I played for four hours straight, the story is beautiful and really caught me off guard.

The game may start off slow, but it's definitely worth it. The game is cheap for what it's worth, just try it!

Worth playing. I don't want to say too much and spoil anything, but I'd give it an hour to get into it. I don't tend to like top-down pixel graphics games, but this overcame my predjudice.

Should totally come with a pack of Kleenex. Couldn't help but cry at least four times during the game. Absolutely beautiful, fantastic storytelling and the soundtrack adds more tears to it as well. Definitely best game played in a while and can't wait for more episodes. Also, got it on sale so win-win-win-win situation.

The story is great. That's all I need to say. I personally don't like narrative based games, and the artstyle wasn't necessarily appealing to me when I first saw the game, but after being convinced by a friend to play it, I can honestly say that I got over all that and this is one of the better games I've ever played. Would highly recommend.

Truly an amazing game. I bought it and waited until I could play the whole game in one sitting.
When I had 4 hours time until I really needed to sleep, I played it. Then, when bedtime arrived, I was so immersed in the game that I wanted to keep playing, so I did. I had cried several times by then, and only more tears followed.
I can recommend it to everyone who wants to play a game that is an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you feeling happy but at the same time crying.
Pros:
-The timeline at the top is very useful so you know what period of time you're playing in.
-beautiful scenery
-Beautiful storyline
-Not drawn out, perfect length for the story it's trying to tell
-Beautful soundtrack
Cons:
-???

I love this game. It's one of the very few games (or movies.. or anything really) that actually had me shed a tear. The story is wonderful. The plot and execution are genius. This is one of those rare games where even though it's incredibly short, it's worth every penny, whether on sale or not.

I wish more games spent this much effort crafting an interesting story. I'd like to thank the people behind this game for bringing it into existence.

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.

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.

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.

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.
