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.

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.

Sorry, but I think I don't really understand the entirely story...

And to 'ihazzai', if you don't like it, show us what you have.

Great music, good job at setting the overall mood. I must say that I found the story progression a little lacking though, mostly due to the vagueness and lack of meaning in the primary game "tasks". I do think that the obvious effort put into the way the story is told pays off and makes for a nice overall experience. In my honest opinion, however, the player doesn't have enough involvement in what is happening and therefore the artistic aspect gets high marks while the game itself scrapes out a fair rating.

*SPOILER ALERT*

So, I take it the game is about you getting a sex change and the internal struggles thereof? If I'm wrong then maybe the story really WAS too vague.


VOEC responds:

Thank you for your feedback. I can see too, that the gameplay is lacking in some aspects. If I ever make another game I will try to pay closer attention to the gameplay mechanics and player involvement.
Regarding the spoiler: Well, I wouldn't have put it like that, but basicly you're right.

This game is incredibly beautiful, if simple. But what is lost is the point being made. The game is too slow and the reader is well, not that slow a reader. The validity of the point is lost in the impatience to see it. While the intent may have been artistic and gentle, the result requires more patience than such a simple game needs for the average gamer. There's lag, which increases the very slow speed of the game.

While I found this game very beautiful, I think it tried too hard at being artistic and the speed was one of these things. That being said, I think this is an amazing work for a first go and look forward to more from you.
