To The Moon becoming an animated movie

Kan Gao's tearjerker To The Moon, a game which affected our John so much that he still daren't open the curtains on clear nights lest he be swept away in a torrent of his own tears, is becoming a full-length animated movie. It's the story of doctors travelling through the memories of a dying man (with the aid of a fancy machine), seeing his life…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Finding Paradise (To The Moon 2) review

To The Moon is one of my favourite gaming experiences. No game has made me blub as hard, or as often, and it earned those tears through a funny, passionate, emotionally complex story. Finding Paradise, a direct sequel after a number of smaller asides, didn't make me cry. It made me laugh, think, wonder, and finish with a sad smile on my face, but no…

To The Moon sequel Finding Paradise out December 14th

I can’t check my inbox without being slapped in the face with press releases about games threatening to make me cry and feel grotesque human emotions. It’s awful. To the Moon and Finding Paradise developer Freebird Games feels the same way, which is why it’s now introducing 2 the Moon, a definitely real sci-fi adventure with loot boxes and monsters and all the things video…

To The Moon Sequel Finding Paradise Due Summer 2017

To the Moon follow-up Finding Paradise [official site] will launch in summer 2017, creator Kan Gao now says. He was a bit hazy on that when he announced the tearjerk 'em up earlier this year, unsure whether it'd launch this year or next. He's seemed set on summer 2017 for a while but hey, I've only just noticed so you likely haven't either. In these…

To The Moon, And Beyond! Finding Paradise Announced

To the Moon is one of the very best adventure games, our John will tell you - if he's not too busy wringing you for confessions of weeping. The 2011 journey through a dying man's dreams was a bit of a tearjerker, see. Following two intermission 'minisodes' and so-so tie-in A Bird Story, developers Freebird Games have now revealed a bit of the true second…

Have You Played… To The Moon?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Truthfully, I don’t remember all the ins and outs of To The Moon's [official site] lackadaisical storytelling, but perhaps that is funny in itself, considering how important decaying memory is to the tale. But the enduring feeling of the game is one of…

To The Moon Minisode 2 Is Really Very Good

To The Moon [official site] remains one of RPS's favourite games. If all the tears this game has caused around the world were put in one place, that place would be a new ocean. Saltier than the Dead Sea. A lovely, charming, and deeply moving thing, about a pair of scientists who change a dying person's memories to give them the life they'd always wanted,…

A Bird Story review

Freedbird’s To The Moon is one of my favourite games. A beautiful, moving and intricate tale of memory and loss, it has made people weep in their thousands. This second game from Kan Gao, A Bird Story, is not a sequel, but apparently tangentially related. After a three year wait, I was pretty excited to play it. A Bird Story is one of my least…

To The Moon Devs’ A Bird Story Now Flapping About

John probably wants you to cry at A Bird Story, you realise. He's spoken before about his sinister habit of extracting confessions of tears from people who played To the Moon, and surely he's got something more devious planned for the not-sequel. A Bird Story launched on Friday, and I would recommend that you first check your play area for e.g. funnels concealed in the…

Humble Bundle X Offers 6 Games Wot Are Quite Good

It's almost hard to believe there was a time when we weren't being constantly bombarded with cheap games, but it's true. When I was a lad, I had to save up for two months, walk miles through snow to the nearest PC World, and turn my coins over for a game that probably wouldn't even work. Now every hobo with a bindle is buying bundles…

A Weeping Song: After To The Moon, A Bird Story

One of the best games of 2011, To The Moon, has finally had its sequel announced. Called A Bird Story, developer Kan Gao explains to us that it should be out some time around the Summer. This is what we experts call GOOD NEWS. *KRRRRKKKKKKKBZZZZZZTTTCHHHHHHHRRRKKKK* I interrupt this transmission from the Walkerdome with my own signal, cutting through like a blade of static and infoburst.…

Indie Royale Fall Bundle Is Quite Good

While some of the Indie Royale Bundles haven't been the strongest, the latest collection in its almost-pay-what-you-want pile is pretty strong. Featuring one of last year's best games, To The Moon, alongside Wadjet Eye's most recent Blackwell game, Deception, is Oil Rush, Reprisal, and something called Avseq.

The More Or Less Complete IGF Factor 2012

They said it would never end. And then, on Saturday, it did. We've been posting our series of chats with the many splendid finalists in this year's Independent Games Festival over the last couple of months, and, with the exception of English Country Tune (dev was worried about sounding boring), Mirage (dev didn't reply) and Fez (dev wouldn't confirm the possibility of a PC version)…
