To The Moon is an indie adventure game made by Kan Gao of Freebird Games~ Also the original soundtrack came from the brilliant minds of Laura Shigihara (PVZ~!!) and Kan Gao themselves~! Read on for more description of the game.

There exists a technology that allows doctors to weave artificial memories, such that a patient can request attempts to alter their mind, and wake up with memories of things that didn’t actually happen. 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. And if all goes well, they would wake up, having lived the dream life they never had, and embrace a brief moment of blissful fulfillment. Shortly after, they’d draw their last breath.

This particular story follows Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts’ attempt to fulfill the dream of the dying elderly man, Johnny. In their mission to do so, they traverse backwards through the man’s memories, unfolding his curious life story before their eyes. With each step back in time, a new fragment of Johnny’s past is revealed. And 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. - To The Moon description

It took about 3 hours for me, a casual gamer to complete the game. I played it non-stop because I couldn't take my eyes off this game and the story~~ Every aspect was carefully made and the story is well thought of. The graphics are not of the highest level, but it didn't matter. This game is a living testament that great games do not come by bringing in huge graphics or complicated storylines! Simple, with heartwarming graphics? Count me in. Simple, but elicits a whirlwind of emotions from the gamer? Count me in. I am giving this a 5/5 rating~! For sure~! :3
