Get your tissues at the ready, folks – To The Moon officially lands on the Nintendo Store today (January 16) and it’s been labelled ‘the most emotional RPG game ever’.
The game is by no means new, in fact if you’re an OG fan of PewDiePie, you may remember the time he played ‘To The Moon’ on his channel back in 2012 and titled the video ‘Let The Tears Begin’. It originally launched on PC, and later came out on mobile, android and IOS.
The adventure game was developed and published by Freebird Games, and the games description reads:
Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live, all the way from the very beginning… but only in their patients’ heads. Due to the severity of the operation, the new life becomes the last thing the patients remember before drawing their last breath. 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.
This particular story follows their attempt to fulfill the dream of an elderly man, Johnny. With each step back in time, a new fragment of Johnny’s past is revealed. As the two doctors piece together the puzzled events that spanned a life time, they seek to find out just why the frail old man chose his dying wish to be what it is. And Johnny’s last wish is, of course… to go to the moon.
The indie game already has an incredible 10/10 rating on Steam, and reviews describe it as giving players ‘the same feeling they had during the first 10 minutes of Disney’s ‘UP‘. If you know, you know.
