It's been a while since I've felt so affected by a video game trailer. It could be the concept - travelling through the memories of a dying man to fulfil his last wish - or it could be the execution, with an art style that plays with the nostalgic memories we've already created with numerous other 16-bit RPGs. Regardless, To the Moonlooks utterly heartbreaking, and I can't wait to experience it.
To the Moon is the latest project by Kan Gao, creator of Quintessence - The Blighted Venom and The Mirror Lied, and revolves around an old man Johnny, and Dr Rosalene and Dr. Watts who, through new technology, have the ability to travel through the old man's memories and recreate them in order to fulfil his one dying wish - to go to the moon.
The game is scheduled for release this Spring.
