NEWS!Beloved Story-Driven Adventure 'To the Moon' Hitting iOS and Android Next Month
n August of last year, developer Freebird Games announced that they'd be partnering up with X.D. Network to bring the beloved indie hit To the Moon to the mobile platform, and that day is finally approaching. Originally released on desktops in 2011, To the Moon follows the story of two doctors who travel through the memories of terminally I'll patients in order to fulfill the patient's dying wish by way of implanting the experience into their brains. In this particular instance the patient Johnny's last wish is to go to the moon, and as the doctors travel back through Johnny's entire life of memories they'll discover all the reasons why that's what he wants to do. It's a pretty trippy concept and To the Moon is quite an emotional journey. Despite looking like a classic 16-bit RPG, To the Moon is entirely story-based and there's no combat, inventories, party management, or any of the other traditional RPG elements. The game was originally created in RPG Maker, and what X.D. Network is doing is completely remaking the game in Unity in order to port it to Android and iOS, meaning it will have a slightly different visual look and improved UI over the original, and they've sent along some screens of the new version to give us an idea of what it's like.
