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…

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)…

IGF Factor 2012: To The Moon

And so my semi-exhaustive attempt to chat to the makers of (almost) all the PC/Mac-based games which are nominated for Independent Games Festival awards this year continues. This time, it's one of the boy Walker's favourite games of last year, the backwards-storytelling, thoughtful sci-fi, and heartstring-pulling that is To The Moon.

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 19

As we gather 'round the open fire, roasting our chestnuts if we sit a little too close, it's not unusual for conversation to turn to Christmases past.

How we laughed! You enjoyed…

Verdict: To The Moon

As you may have noticed, we love To The Moon - a genuinely wonderful adventure game about memory, love and relational disorder. John's going on about it caused Adam to play, and so we've sat down to have a chat about how it hit us. The discussion below contains spoilers right to the very end of the game, so we strongly encourage you to play…

If Memory Serves: To The Moon

Here's what I'd like to see/hear. An adventure game whose music doesn't begin with a long strained note on a violin. Seriously, every single one does it now. Nothing wrong with it - I'd just like some variation. Joining their numbers is To The Moon - a sort of RPG adventure thing that attracted me by its excellent name, and then - as it happens…
