Analog Addiction writes: "Life is a fragile and fleeting concept. As children, death is furthest thing from our minds. As adults though, its an inevitability we become aware of far too soon. For some, its not a realization people would not care to hear (or in this case read). So how then does a game tackle the question of death, and by association, life? Perhaps that is what makes To The Moon work. It gets our emotions, and uses those emotions in the rarest of ways, especially for a video game. Using death as its setting and life as it’s plot, To The Moon is a poignant and touching tale about one man’s dream coming true while he near life’s only absolute truth: death."
