Mit "To the Moon" wollte sein Schöpfer Kan Gao eigentlich gar kein Spiel kreieren, sondern eine Geschichte erzählen, die teilweise durchaus autobiografische Züge trägt. Deshalb bietet sein Indie-Kleinod, das bislang nur online erhältlich war und Ende...

To The Moon is door zijn sterke focus op narratief en de ontwikkeling van personages een ontroerende ervaring die je lang zal bijblijven. Door spelers vooral bezig te houden met de ontwikkeling van personages en de voortgang van het verhaal, is To The...
