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 cannot recommend this enough, but then, apparantly I'm a fan of my games making me sob uncontrollably.

I got this on sale but would have paid full price for this. It's more like an interactive, pixelated movie than a game, and has one of the best, most moving storylines of any I've played for a while. The soundtrack is also beautiful - I'd definitely pick up the bundle!

Short steps, deep breath, everything is alright
Chin up, I can't step into the spotlight

She said, "I'm sad," somehow without any words
I just stood there, searching for an answer

When this world is no more
The moon is all we'll see
I'll ask you to fly away with me

Until the stars all fall down
They empty from the sky
But I don't mind

If you're with me, then everything's alright

Why do my words always lose their meaning
What I feel, what I say, there's such a rift between them

He said, "I can't really seem to read you"
I just stood there, never know what I should do

When this world is no more
The moon is all we'll see
I'll ask you to fly away with me

Until the stars all fall down
They empty from the sky
But I don't mind

If you're with me, then everything's alright

If you're with me, then everything's alright

It is every bit as beautiful and poignant as it's made out to be and is the best onion cutting simulator on Steam. I came in skeptical and left with my belief in games as art totally reaffirmed. Stick with it past it's slow start and marathon it in one sitting for the highest possibility of being a blubbering mess at 2 in the morning. If you don't like interactive fiction games at all whatsoever, play it anyway and it'll probably change your mind.

I picked this game up based off word of mouth, reviews etc; a simple game with a good story, that's not too long.

At first I wasn't sure if I was playing the same game. Early on, it comes across as just a bit of fluff with some hokey comedy, but as I got further into the game, the story started to unravel, and all the feelings that came with it.

It is a short game, 3-4 hours maybe. The puzzles are simple, and it's mostly a straightforward experience. This can be a good game if you're trying to get young kids into games (especially if they're not into gunplay etc), or to expand their gaming genre horizons.

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.

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.
