To the Moon

An unusual adventure game developed by an indie developer studio from Canada, Freebird Games. To The Moon lets you play as two scientists working for Sigmund Corp., who offer people a chance to revisit their own memories and change the way they remember how their lives went so they can live out their biggest, unfulfilled dreams. As the two scientists delve into the mind of an ill old man named Johnathan Wyles, whose life dream was to fly to the Moon, the player’s job is to make that happen. Elements of the real world and the memories of fading Mr. Wyles interweave constantly throughout the story, and gameplay boils down to exploration of in-game locations and collecting special orbs that represent the old man’s key memories. To this end, you have to talk to people you meet and collect various items that give access to deeper layers of his memory. To the Moon combines a not so small dose of humor with a touching drama.

To the Moon for Apple iOS is an indie adventure game in which you have a chance to get inside the memory of a dying man. The title has been designed by Freebird Games, a studio with several similar projects under their belt.

Freebird Games is an independent developer studio founded by Kan “Reives” Gao. The company employs more than 10 people, including composer James Q. Zhang. Apart from To the Moon the developer created three other titles: Do You Remember My Lullaby?, Quintessence: The Blighted Venom, and The Mirror Lied.

In To the Moon you play as two doctors: Eva Rosalene and Neil Watts, who work for Sigmund Corp. The company offers dying people a chance of revisiting their memories in order to “relive” their life, enabling them to think they have managed to realize their biggest unfulfilled dreams. This time the two doctors visit an ill old man named Johnny Wyles, who had always dreamed of flying to the Moon.

Elements of the real world and the memories of dying Mr. Wyles interweave constantly throughout the story of To the Moon. The doctors dig deeper and deeper into Johnny’s memories, in search for a potential turning point. As they progress, the two of them discover new, moving details of the man’s life.

The player’s main job is to carefully explore visited locations (like the lighthouse or Mr. Wyles' house) and gather special orbs that symbolize key memories. To this end, you have to talk to the characters you meet and collect various items that give you access to deeper layers of Johnny’s memories. On the way the player has to solve numerous uncomplicated puzzles.

To the Moon for Apple iOS combines a not so small dose of humor with a gripping drama. By means of cut-scenes and hilarious conversations the developers parody various elements of popular culture, e.g. video games, especially the jRPG genre and fighting game characters. On the other hand, there are plenty of sad, moving scenes, mainly from Mr. Wyles’ life.

The title has been designed using RPG Maker. Similarly to other games from Freebird Games studio, it features characteristic graphics and audio, which bring connotations of a typical old-school RPG released on the SNES console. The game is enriched with an emotional soundtrack composed by James Q. Zhang.
