To the Moon, the indie RPG/adventure game from Freebird Games John’s previously talked about with a soundtrack from Laura Shigihara off of Plants vs Zombies has a release date, soundtrack and trailer. Which happens to be quite the thing, if you’ll see below.
Aww, wasn’t that nice? Like a cuddle wrapped in velvet. That’s Kan Gao, the creator of the project, and I love his faint befuddlement at 2:34. He should read fairy tales while Rainy Mood is on in the background, I’d fall asleep to them every night.
Releasing on November 1st, To the Moon is about “two doctors traversing through the memories of a dying man to fulfil his last wish.” Truth be told, I’m at as much of a loss to describe this as John was, so here:
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.
There’s more where that came from. It all sounds rather lovely, doesn’t it? And I’ve still got that fellow’s voice narrating in my head. The hefty soundtrack is available to pre-order over at Bandcamp and releases later this week on the 15th. At $5, 50% of the soundtrack profits goes to charities for autism. Another nice thing! Man.
