Tipstor® Pick


To the Moon may be light on gameplay, but it is a storytelling powerhouse that explores the themes of love and regret. That most of the game takes place in a virtual world constructed from a dying man’s fading memories, accessed via high-tech headsets and computer programs, is purely a background element in a fulfilling, affecting experience that will leave most players solemn and silent at its end, but happy, too. Because while To the Moon is definitely a sad game, warm and generous humor runs through it, especially in the interactions between the two doctors.
