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.

I was going to make a joke and say that this is the best shoot them up game ever. But that would be on the same level as me making a cancer joke at a hospital. This game is DEEP and will have you get goosebumps where you never thought you can get goosebumps. (also a tip from experiance. dont play this if you have a loved one who is or has passed away recently. it will make you depressed.)

I've caught glimpses of this game many times before finally deciding to buy it. I waited until the Summer Sale, and bought it for $2. $10 is a more than reasonable price for this beautiful game. The minisodes are okay, but To the Moon is a masterpiece. Definitely worth the buy.

How do I begin to even describe this game...

I've played through it twice, and cried both times. It's an emotional journey through life, and beautifully presented so. The dialogue is well-written and humorous, and even though the pop culture references are a bit dated, they add character development.

The gameplay is story-driven, and that's where some of you might be put off. The game has multiple puzzles, and that's about it; however, that's all this type of game needs for what it's trying to accomplish.

At about five hours long, I'm sure you'll be tearing up just like me when you finally go
To the Moon.

The story of this game is truly heartwarming with a nicely phased plot, there's humour in this game too. To be honest this is not really a game, it's more of a visual novel. The main selling point is the story not the gameplay, you can finish the game in about 4 hours but it is a truly wonderful experience.

But there's something that i don't like too, Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts sometimes can be too harsh, saying things like "He's a dead man anyway", it makes you feel that they don't symphatize with John's condition.

Pros :
1. Really really really good story, one of the best story in a game, on par with Life is Strange
2. Really really really good soundtrack, all of the music is really touching
3. Cheap

Cons :
1. The first 15 minutes may not be so interesting
2. Sometimes Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts can be insensitive

Overall 9.8/10 absolutely recommend it.

Short and sweet. This emotianally-moving game is perfect for an eventless night. The story was quirky, sad, and funny at times unexpected. Soundtrack is super captivating, one of the high points of the game. Controls are meh but not a big deal. Overall super charming game, would definitely recommend at sale price.

A great and moving story game with a neat soundtrack. Don´t expect any big gameplay elements and keep in mind that it is pretty short.

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.

Definitely masterpiece! Perfect story, perfect musics, perfect characters. All of them in a one game. If you are a story lover or thinking tha stories are the most important pieces of the video games, you should definitely play this game and it's DLC's. You won't regret this, I assure you.

PLAY THE DAMN THING!!!

Ok. I'm calm...
