I think it’s only fair to mention that this site is really just an elaborate bookmarking system I’ll use once I have time on my hands again (HA!). Games that look like they’ll fit my play style or story interests get a mention, and once I can sit down and focus I can go back and say, “Oh yeah! I did want to check that out!”
This is one of those moments. Thanks to long-time listener, Brad from Australia, for pointing out To the Moon. It’s an indie RPG with a visual style similar to my favorite era of RPGs. The game’s website describes To the Moon as “an indie RPG/adventure game, about two doctors traversing through the memories of a dying man to fulfill his last wish.” The genres listed are sci-fi, psychological, and tragicomedy. All of my geek/gamer/literary genes are screaming at me to play this right now, but did I mention I have no time? There’s an hour-long demo available, so if you have more time on your hands than I do, definitely check it out.
