Deliver Us The Moon‘s gameplay is trash, with its only challenge coming from timed sequences with decorative oxygen canisters and the fiddliness of its context-sensitive prompts. Its story, meanwhile, is strongly reminiscent of Interstellar at several points but so melodramatic and poorly developed that it becomes a predictable soap opera version that’s worse in every way. Finally, there’s the performance, which is so bad that it puts the lie to the assertion that the Switch version was canceled because of coronavirus. This doesn’t even run adequately on a Playstation 4 while using textures so downscaled that text is borderline unreadable.

Deliver us the moon presents a great premise that helps to creating a differentiating experience for games of the same genre. With a perfectly integrated graphics and soundtrack, it is presented an adventure that will easily capture the player's attention, facilitating the immersive process. Even though the ending does come as a little bit as anti-climatic, given the created build up, it is still a great option for those who enjoy this type of experience.

Deliver Us The Moon first released on Early Access back in September of 2018 on PC; fast forward nearly two years later now under the Wired IP umbrella, we get to experience this on consoles. It has been on my radar for over a month and knowing that I will be a father again. I thought it would engage my brain just to sit back and enjoy a playthrough. Boy, I wasn’t wrong. Deliver Us The Moon is about survival and hope.

Deliver us the Moon is a fun, tension filled puzzle game with a great story and a few flaws. You can tell the developers did research to make this Moon puzzle as realistic as possible. This game contains little to no violence which makes it a great brain teasing game for mostly everyone. What could improve this game is a better menu system, more camera control, and perhaps more NPC engagement. I give this game an 85 out of 100 for the enthralling puzzles, compelling side stories, and realistic game play.

With Deliver Us the Moon I received a pleasant surprise, in the form of a realistic and credible space adventure. A narrative adventure that, nevertheless, has a varied playable body that helps both to get into his proposal even more, and to feel that we are playing for real, as opposed to other more limited narratives on this plane.

Overall Deliver Us The Moon is a solid walking sim puzzle game. With a fantastic atmosphere and a story that keeps you engaged during this 3 to 4 hour campaign. The variation in first and third person perspective is an interesting choice, which really works in the game. The production value of this ambitious title from an independent developer can only be applauded. With good voice acting, sound design and visuals and decent gameplay, this game rises above being ‘just a sci-fi game’ in a convincing way.

An exciting but predictable journey into a dark future, crafted with care and bits of hope.

Deliver Us The Moon is a spirited, fascinating adventure full of exploration. You can really lose yourself in this world, despite its linearity, and you’ll actually find many of its key moments leave a lasting impression. This is the closest I will ever get to venturing into space, and I’m so very glad I took the trip.

I'm glad that games like Deliver Us The Moon exist as they prove that adventure games don't have to follow a cookie cutter formula.
