Just spotted this little gem of an indie game, [url="http://www.freebirdgames.com/to_the_moon/"]To The Moon[/url].

Looks really good in the sense of story, the trailers show a lot of emotion.

[quote]There exists a technology that allows doctors to weave artificial memories, such that a patient can request attempts to alter their mind, and wake up with memories of things that didn't actually happen.

However, since these new memories are permanent, the conflict between them and the existing authentic memories clash in such a way that it ceases the person's ability to properly function.

Thus, the operation is only done to people on their deathbeds, to fulfill what they wish they had done with their lives. . . but didn't.

The technology requires the doctors to step into the memories of the patient, which are reconstructed as interactive scenes. The doctors then gradually traverse backwards through memories of the patient's life until they reach childhood -- at which point, the wish of the patient in present time would be transferred over.

Along with the doctors' influence, the patient (as a child) could then lead an entire different life inside their head, working toward and fulfilling their dying wish themselves.

And if all goes well, they would wake up, having lived the dream life they never had, and embrace a brief moment of blissful fulfillment.

Shortly after, they'd draw their last breath.

This particular story follows Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts' attempt to fulfill the dream of the dying elderly man, Johnny. In their mission to do so, they traverse backwards through the man

This is on steam now and it's definitely worth picking up. It's not so much a game as a 4/5 hour interactive story, but it doesn't matter in the slightest. It's just incredible & has one of the best soundtracks I've heard.

I'd be lying tho if I said it wasn't weepy at some bits :p I'm wary of posting details even in spoiler tags as it would take a big part of the game away. It's sweet rather than sad.

Anyone else get this?

hah hah thanks for bringing this thread back DrCheese, January seems so long ago...was so much happier then. it's funny because i just bought this a few days ago from Steam. it looks cool, it's like a funny take on top-down RPG's from the 80's. the story does seem very touching, and the writing is good. i will endeavor to complete this game!

The [url="http://freebirdgames.bandcamp.com/album/to-the-moon-ost"]music for this game[/url] is so beautiful and serene. You can buy it for $5 CAD or more and 50% of the profit goes to charity. Also, you can play the game for an hour without buying it. The download link is on the game's [url="http://freebirdgames.com/to_the_moon/"]main page[/url].
