Freebird Games has announced a new adventure game called To the Moon, which revolves around the concept of memory and life. The story revolves about two doctors traversing through the memories of a dying man to fulfill his last wish, in a world where doctors can rework a person’s memory in order to grant them their greatest wish. The catch? It will be the last thing they’ll ever remember.
The game investigates some heady concepts, as the official site asks:
“If you had the chance to relive your life, would you change things? Would you try to achieve some grand goal? Could you find love? Fame? Fortune? Or would you realize that sometimes the past is meant to stay the same?”
The game resembles a 16-bit Nintendo game, but the writing and especially the music, written and performed by Laura Shigihara, who is best known for writing and performing the Plants Vs. Zombies song “There’s a Zombie On Your Lawn”.
If that weren’t enough, check out one of the most tearjerking trailers since the Dead Island video early this year.
