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 lifetime, 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. KEY FEATURES - A unique & non-combat story-driven experience - Innovative mix between adventure game elements and classic RPG aesthetics - Acclaimed original soundtrack that closely ties to the story - An espresso execution with zero filler and no time drains

To The Moon is a powerful interactive story. It deals with issues and situations we'll likely all experience in our lifetimes and does so honestly and within a brilliant narrative setup that allows us to watch a lifetime deconstructed, layer by layer, revealing the very human mistakes and unavoidable interruptions of fate that shape how our lives ultimately turn out.

To The Moon lands on the Nintendo Switch and should be given the red carpet on its arrival. Played more like a short but touching interactive novel, To The Moon features a very moving story that will get the players to think about life and death while journeying through the game's plot and even if it's not a blockbuster, it more than deserves a place next to every player who's looking for an unforgettable experience.
