Developer Kan Gao released the first free *shudder* 'minisode' for To The Moon at around this time last year, and now another has been released, completely free. While it's the same sort of length as the first (around 20 minutes), Gao suggests that this one is "a tad more...important, plot-wise". Once again, you're stuck in a hospital playing as the two main scientist characters of To The Moon, as protestors do protesty things outside.
If you own To The Moon on Steam, you should find that the DLC has already been registered to your account. Otherwise, you can download it here. You don't need to own TTM, but it will probably make more sense if you've played that first.
With Sigmund Minisode 2 out of the way, Gao will be resuming work on To The Moon's full-fledged sequel, Finding Paradise. Meanwhile, one of Freebird's pixel artists, Jordan, is still in hospital undergoing chemotherapy; if you'd like to help out with either kind words or donations, there are details of how you can do so here.
To the Moon, a lovely and emotionally evocative indie adventure game released in 2011, is getting a sequel... sorta.
The game's called A Bird Story, and it's a short adventure that will be out this summer. Creator Kan Gao likes to think of it as a bridge between the first and second To the Moons.
"It might be good to think of it more as a standalone game / story though, since all the characters are new (all 2 of them, counting the bird)," Gao told me in an e-mail last night. "I'm also a bit afraid that people'd think less of it since it's kind of a prequel to the 2nd 'full episode.' It's its own story, and although it's just about 30 minutes or so, I think of it as just as important as the 2nd ep."
Let's call it... To the Moon 1.5.
The bundle also includes strategy titles Oil Rush and Reprisal, adventure game The Blackwell Deception, and musical puzzler AVSEQ. Buyers who pay $8 or more also receive an "8-bit inspired" electronica album.
Since everyone ever should play To The Moon, this bundle's a great way to get it plus a bunch of other interesting indie games. But seriously: To The Moon. Just do it.
