"Mirrormoon EP is not about story or complex gameplay or moral choices or brain-twisting puzzles. It's about discovery. Best of Indies 2013."

"Genuinely invokes the early days of human exploration"
9/10 - Eurogamer

"With beautiful artistic touches throughout and gameplay that doesn’t feel traditional at all, the experience that is MirrorMoon EP is one that will likely stick with me for years"
10/10 - Shogun Gamer

"[...] one of the most dazzling moments I’ve ever experienced in a game"
Indie Statik

"When I was a kid, I was deathly afraid of space. The stark, vast beauty of the night sky both entranced and terrified me [...] While I have long since overcome those fears, MirrorMoon brought the memories of them back with a vengeance. I have never played a game that captures the simple and dangerous beauty of space quite like it."

About This Game

MirrorMoon EP is a game about mystery and exploration set in outer space.
These space travels begin on a red planet and its unique moon and extend across galaxies.
The single player part of MirrorMoon EP blends adventure and exploration with navigation-based puzzle solving. The multiplayer of MirrorMoon EP lets players share Galaxy Maps with other players: the first explorers to land on a planet will be able to name its Star System and that name will be forever bound to the star for any other fellow traveler who encounters it.

Each Galaxy consists of a thousand Systems: it will be possible to fully discover the mysteries of MirrorMoon EP only while collaborating with other players.
Through the apparently indecipherable cockpit of an unknown spacecraft, players will be able to locate and travel to mysterious planets. Each planet has artifacts, buildings, and puzzles on its surface, hidden in astonishing low-poly sceneries.



MirrorMoon was nominated for the Nuovo Award for innovation in games at Independent Game Festival 2013 and was also part of the Official IndieCade and Fantastic Arcade 2012 selections. Since then, MirrorMoon has grown considerably. EP stands for Extended Play, representing all the new content that we added for the official release.

This game could be good, but it's marred by two primary problems: terrible controls and tedious gameplay.

Wandering around the planets is not very interesting, since they're mostly barren, monochromatic worlds. I've seen reviews raving about the "gorgeous worlds" but simple polygon-based graphics, despite the uniqueness, doesn't equal gorgeous. You'll be looking for various structures, but since you can't really look around very well, and have to keep referencing the "mirrormoon" minimap in the sky, it's a hassle to find stuff, such that you'll pick a direction and hope it's the right way, but end up circumnavigating the entire globe and have to look at the minimap again.

And the controls are entirely obtuse. Navigating to other planets, well, good luck figuring that out, and even when you do, be preparing to spend five minutes trying to select a new location. All in all, you'll be wasting a lot of time just trying to do the most basic things. That's not my idea of fun. I don't need a lot of handholding necessarily, but I do need a game that is at least intuitive and sensible. I got this in a bundle, thank goodness, otherwise I'd be really annoyed.

First, to put things into perspective this game wears a mustache, always has a beret, rides a bicycle, has a crazy contraption just to make coffee and only listens to garage bands because everything else is too mainstream. Second, were you ever asked to play a game, spend the next hour looking at each other and in the end of that hour the person asked: "do you know how to play the game?" and you answer "no, I thought you knew". That's this game for you: guessing what to do while spending time naming random solar systems until you finally strike luck and manage to finish the game. It's madness.

I spent most of the time wandering around, confused, or both. Why can't I look around?

Don't play this game if you expect "things", play this game if you like to be alone on a windy night. This game is like that, but in space.
