a video game about dysphoria and astronauts

"Personal Trip to the Moon" is an experimental game about exploration and discovery which serves as a psychogram of a gray wasteland and its inhabitant.
It's a game about finding yourself 384400 kilometers away from home.

Music: "Une chute sans fin" by "Another Moon" (S├ębastien Lombard).

Special thanks to azrafe7 and everyone from the FlashPunk forums.

"Personal Trip to the Moon" is the first game I have ever managed to release and as the title suggests it is a very personal project.
Any kind of feedback is highly apreciated and please keep an open mind while playing. Thank you.

The whole message and everything that was set up in this game were great. It had interesting sounds and a cool gritty vibe to it. i like watching the things take place and fully consuming the message... What I did not find in this "game" was game play. It was an interesting short story but I was honestly looking forward to a game. I just walked around grabbed 5 things and was done. It was interesting but didn't really excite me or truly inteest me because most of the game was me just watching it unfold. I did hardly anything.. I followed a compass to easy to % easy to reach items and that was it. I didn't learn the challenges of suicide i didn't learn the challenges of transgender. I walked around being fed information. Like i said it was a good theme good set up but there was virtually no game play or excitement. i just wish I could have been stimulated more. If this had ood or atleast challenging game play i would have given it a 5/5 but I cannot do that because quite frankly I didn't have fun.

That's an interesting game, but I'd like to nitpick a few things...

In this game there are two very high-impact themes, as far as I can get it: sexual identity and suicide. They're both very strong topic, and I don't think it's easy to make them coexist in a single creation; this game doesn't end up feeling soppy, but it would have been better to concentrate on a single theme - the ending, for instance, would have been more effective without the very last part, with her - or him - near the roof edge; it creates an excessive pathos "load".

Secondly, I think the pixelated design of characters doesn't fit with the rich texture of the ambient - I'm not saying it's bad or ugly, but a more refined or flat design for the characters would have given a better overall visual coherence.

Finally, the recollection of piece to save the moon astronauts, the tree, too much stuff all relatively related to the two main topic. Again, I'm not saying it doesn't make sense, but the overall feeling gets a little dissipated in too many streams.

That's my opinion, and of course it's not the ultimate truth :) I just hope I'm giving you some interesting cue to work on.
Keep up the good work.
