To The Moon

| 15 comments
To The Moon is the most gripping non-game videogame you've never heard of. To The Moon is an Indie title developed by Freebird Games. The game is basically a interactive story and for some reason the developer decided to throw highly unnecessary puzzles on top of it. Without those the game might be no longer considered a game by most, mind you it's still hard to call it a game right now, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Interactive stories are just fine without tacked on puzzles all over the place. It's not that I think the gameplay is ruining the rest of the game, they just don't really fit and I'm uncertain as to why the developer decided to add them. So by now you might be wondering why I'm even discussing this game, but I actually consider this little non-game the best Indie game of the year and one of the best games of the year in general. To The Moons story is so incredibly good and it tells its story so well, which is even more amazing if you consider it's made in RPG maker, that it doesn't matter that the gameplay is tacked on. The story is heartbreaking and heartwarming and one of the best game stories ever written. I'm not even going into the premise of the story, just GO and buy it, recommend it to everyone including non-gamers and buy a couple extra copies just for the heck of it. It is that good.

not a big fan of these kind of games, they're too slow paced.

If it's anything like the old DOS games..Kings Quest, etc. then I'm definitely getting this.

Can't beat a good PC adventure game!

Seems like some of you understood me wrong :P It's an interactive story with a couple of simple puzzles that connect the different areas in the game and move the story forward. You'll be spending most of your time just listening and watching. It's not an adventure title and it's not a brain game (the puzzles are really simple). Just wanted to clarify that :)

If the graphics are good and I feel like I'm going to different places, wouldn't be bad.
