“To The Moon” Trailer Could Draw Tears From A Stone
While the art style will most definitely stir Chrono Trigger
nostalgia, there’s more of an Up quality to this achingly beautiful
trailer for what’s sure to be a thoroughly emotional game. The story
behind the game, which the trailer is too busy tugging heartstrings and
conjuring up regret-tinged memories to properly go into is that Dr. Eva
Rosalene and Dr. Neil Watts can alter a dying person’s memories to make
him experience the life he might have wanted and proceed to do so for a
dying old man named, curiously enough, Johnny.
There is a girl and a chance meeting on
the stairs and a lighthouse and a space shuttle and horseback riding and
that’s about all we could make out before something um… got in our
eyes. Johnny’s last wish is to go to the moon. Ours, all other things
being equal, would be to see more games like this one being made, or at
the very least attempted. And if you do click through to have a look at
the trailer, bring a hanky.
