A well written and engaging story can be hard to find in games, the kind that tugs at your heartstrings. To the moon is an example of one of these games and it does this wonderfully despite it's simple medium or perhaps it's because of it that it's able to concentrate on what matters in this game, the story.

You take control of the two characters Dr. Eva Rosalene and Dr. Neil Watts whom have a different job, they give people a chance to relive their lives and fulfill the wishes they weren't able to fulfill. However the changes are merely applied to ones memories and comes at the cost of ones life so it's only used on shortly before people pass away and if it all goes well the patient passes away with happy fulfilled memories.

Enter Johnny whom only have a day or two left before he passes away, his wish is to go to the moon and thus begins a journey through Johnnys life from the recent memories to his oldest in order to help him realize this dream and find out why he wants to go to the moon. Needless to say the story of Johnny is quite touching while it did bring me close to tears several times throughout four to five hours story it didn't make me bawl my eyes out until now when I really think of the story. It's a sad, touching, warm and funny story and took me on quite the ride that very few manages to do, in fact I'm not sure if any animes I've watched can come close to how well told this story is.

I can't really do the story and the game justice and while I felt like it was a little overhyped at first my tears obviously disagrees with that opinion. If you like games for their story or simple like a well told story you should buy it because it's well worth the money.

To the Moon is an indie game by freebird for $11.99, there's an hour long trial that you can download at their website http://freebirdgames.com/to_the_moon/
