The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #19: To The Moon

2 mins read

It’s that time again! Michael Buble’s smooth voice serenades us over the radio with his brilliant rendition of “Let it Snow.” Houses are covered with bright lights, tinsel, green and red colours. Children anxiously count down the days, hoping they were good enough for a visit by Santa.

It’s a magical time, with one other little benefit – most of us also have breaks over Christmas. Breaks means time to play games!

It has been a great year for games, and no doubt there are some great ones that you’ve missed. And so we at Digitally Downloaded will count down to Christmas with one game recommendation for you each day.

Enjoy, and happy holidays!

Day #19 – To The Moon
Matt S

For today’s game, we’re going right back to the start of the year. If you haven’t played To The Moon, then consider this a gentle reminder to do so. 
This tiny indie development team have used RPG Maker assets to make an RPG with no combat system. Before you ask “so, there’s no game, then?” To The Moon is actually a puzzle adventure game despite its appearances. 
It’s also plot-heavy. It just so happens that the reason this game is so worthwhile is that the plot is one of the most heartfelt and touching stories you’ll ever experience. And I am including literature and film in that assessment. 

The game will also run on any PC that is still working, so there’s no excuse to avoid playing it.

  • Yes! I was actually going to mention this as one of my top Christmas games in a past post. After playing it for the first time, I felt an immense appreciation for my friends and family, which is more or less the Christmas spirit nowadays ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Haha, great minds think alike ๐Ÿ™‚

    I completely agree with you. This game is a brilliant reminder of what is and isn't important in life. It's been months since I last played the game. Might be a good time for me to do it again.

  • This was gifted to me by an online friend recently, and is one of the titles I in fact am planning to take the time to sit down and experience over the holidays. ๐Ÿ™‚
