To the Moon is a 2011 adventure game developed and published by Freebird Games. It was originally released for Windows and was later ported to Linux, OS X, Android, iOS, and the Nintendo Switch. The story follows two doctors who offer to fulfill a dying man’s last wish using artificial memories. The game features relatively few gameplay mechanics, with the player controlling the two doctors, exploring the narrative, and solving puzzles as they try to reconstruct the dying man’s memories to fulfill his wish.

To the Moon

The game was designed by Kan Gao using the RPG Maker XP toolkit. Development started in 2010 when Gao was struck by questions of mortality following his grandfather’s life-threatening condition. To the Moon would become Freebird Games’ first commercial product, following smaller, experimental games released for free on the studio website. The game was updated later to include free downloadable content called “minisodes” to give more context to the main characters. A sequel, Finding Paradise, was released in 2017.

To the Moon received praise for its narrative, music, thematic material, and emotional power. The game was nominated for several awards and considered by many to be a leading example of artistic expression in video games. An animated film adaptation is in development, partially scripted and supervised by Gao.

To the Moon


To the Moon is built on the RPG Maker XP engine, which is used to create 16-bit 2D role-playing games in the style of Suikoden 1 and 2. However, unlike a typical RPG, To the Moon has no battle system (aside from a joke battle near the beginning), inventory system, or party system. As the game is mostly story-driven, the gameplay focuses on puzzle solving, interpreting information from the subject’s (Johnny’s) life, and finding ways to get deeper into his memories. The gameplay mostly consists of exploring Johnny’s memories to find significant objects and collect energy from them to strengthen the memory and connect to a more distant one, from Johnny’s old age leading back to his childhood.

Occasionally, the player will have to explore Johnny’s house and the surrounding area for certain clues, if they cannot gather enough energy from a certain memory, or don’t know how to proceed to a further one. Once the items are all gathered and the player has seen every memory, they can connect certain objects that exist across two different memories to move freely between them. At this point, the player can begin manipulating the memories, by changing around characters, objects, and events, to make Johnny believe he has achieved his dream of going to the Moon.

To the Moon


Sigmund Corp. uses a technology that can create artificial memories. Since they conflict with the patient’s real memories, the procedure is only legal to do on comatose patients without much time left to live. Thus, they offer this as a “wish fulfillment” service to people on their deathbeds.

Sigmund Corp. employees Dr. Eva Rosalene and Dr. Neil Watts are contracted to fulfill the wish of the dying Johnny Wyles. Johnny wants to go to the Moon but is unable to state why. The doctors insert themselves into an interactive compilation of his memories and traverse backward through his life via ‘mementos’, items of great personal significance to Johnny that act as a link between his various memories.

To the Moon

With each leap to an important moment in Johnny’s memories, they learn more about him, largely revolving around his somewhat unhappy marriage to his teenage sweetheart, River. However, Rosalene and Watts are unable to find any kind of explanation for Johnny’s wish. The doctors also encounter an unusual gap in Johnny’s earliest childhood memories, rendering them inaccessible. Nevertheless, the doctors insert his desire to go to the Moon into his earliest accessible memories of his teenage years. In theory, Johnny’s mind would create new memories based on that desire, thus fulfilling his last wish.

Johnny’s mind does not create the new memories as planned, prompting the doctors to find a way to access the missing childhood memories. The doctors later uncovered medical records explaining that Johnny once received a large dose of beta blockers as a child despite not having a heart condition, causing significant memory loss. The doctors then use a combination of their tech and external stimuli to forcefully restore Johnny’s earliest childhood memories, where it is revealed that Johnny and River first met as young children at a carnival.

To the Moon

They looked at the night sky together and made up a constellation: a rabbit with the moon as its belly. The two agreed to meet at the same place the following year, with Johnny promising that should he forget or get lost, the two would “regroup on the Moon”, finally explaining the motivation behind his last wish. Sometime later, Johnny’s mother accidentally kills his twin brother Joey in a car accident. In her grief, Johnny’s mother deliberately gave Johnny the beta blockers[b] to erase all memories of Joey. This also causes him to forget his first encounter with River, but Johnny later meets her again in school and eventually marries her. River later realized that Johnny had forgotten their meeting at the carnival, greatly upsetting her.
