Impostor Factory closes out To The Moon with a “bonkers time-loop tragicomedy”

Impostor Factory, the closing act of pixellated memory-hopper To The Moon, is starting out on some bizarre feat. Matt was sceptical after the teaser dropped this March with nothing but a lady with an umbrella and the promise of "a series of bloody murders." Was that scepticism earned? Maybe? Freebird Games released their first full trailer for Impostor Factory today and like, yeah. It's daft.…

To The Moon devs tease their next game, will be “filled with bloody murders”

Fans of To The Moon and Finding Paradise, rejoice: developers Freebird Games have announce-o-teased their new game. Though maybe don't rejoice too much, because the new game is "a time-resetting thriller-mystery that involves a series of bloody murders". That's right, no more ethically questionable memory meddling until people believe they've fulfilled their dreams. Only murder now. It's called Imposter Factory, and a teaser trailer awaits…

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…

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…

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…

Twitter News: A Bird Story Trailer & Release Date

There's no game I've written about on RPS that has been mentioned to me more often than To The Moon. I still get emails, tweets and even people coming up to me three years on, thanking me for bringing it to their attention. I always reply, "Did it make you cry?" And they always reply, "Yes." And usually, "Three times." It's an astonishingly special and…

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. This point'n'click adventure is up for the Excellence in Audio prize. Here, Freebird Games'…

To The Moon review

Kan Gao's To The Moon first came to our attention thanks to Laura "Plants Vs. Zombies theme" Shigihara. (I do hope for her sake she can lose the moniker soon.) Her involvement with the game's music got us to take a look at early footage, and then it became something I desperately wanted to play. I was right to. No surprises here - this is…
