To the Moon is a story-adventure following two doctors trying to fulfil a dying man's last wish to go to the moon. With only a few ways to interact with the game, you control the doctors, exploring and solving puzzles to reconstruct the dying man's memories.

It looks like a retro role-play game, but plays more like an interactive movie. Along the way you battle people and solve puzzles to find ways to get deeper into the old man's memories to find significant objects.

You trace a chain of events backwards through his life to childhood. Once you have collected all the memories, you can re-connect objects from one memory to the next and move between them. As you do this you realise you can change the memories, by moving characters, objects and events, to make Johnny believe he had achieved his dream of going to the Moon.
