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.

The games takes you simply 4h to complete, and you better be ready for a rollercoaster of emotions. More like an interactive movie other than a game, this beautiful story will not leave you indifferent.

10/10 Highly recommended

The hardest part about this game was deciding whether to let the tears continue to stream down your face or braking the atmosphere by getting up to get a tissue

Got this game on a steam sale. The story is absolutely beautiful and the characters are well developed. Sadly the graphics aren't that great (it's an RPG Maker game), but the audio is really good. The main game mechanic is collecting colored balls, which seems a bit odd and uncaringly implemented. Also the controls are a bit buggy. But if you don't care about this and want a nice little story about a man's life and his love and dreams, then go for it. Wouldn't have bought it for full price though...

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.

10/10, would not-know-if-to-cry-or-smile again.

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.

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...
