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.

This was great. *applause*
Loved the art-style, loved the music, loved the journey.
Seemed very emotional, I'd love to hear about the process of you creating it, and answers to some questions I have like. "What made you want to make this?" "How long did it take to make this?" "Where'd you come up with the title?"
Overall, fabulous experience and this is the reason I continue to play games. To capture this feel.
5/5 - Would play again.

Thank you very much. I will try to answer your questions :)
- "What made you want to make this?"
Mostly pain and hate. I was suffering from a deeply rooted depression which almost ended my life. I needed a way to vent my feelings, something to express them, so I made the game.
- "How long did it take to make this?"
Almost exactly one year. But I worked on it on and off, depending on how I felt, so the actual work time was probably only about a month. In that last 12 months my life changed drasticly (to the better), so while taking a journey of my own I simultaneously created the journey in the game (which is the same thing).
- "Where'd you come up with the title?"
I don't know, really. When I made the first stuff for the game I already, definitly knew that the title should be "Personal Trip to the Moon". That is the only thing that hasn't changed one bit since I started making it. I choose it perhaps because it is a personal game, it is about a jouney/trip and the moon always had same special meaning for me, but I can't explain why.
Sorry, that the answers turned out to be quite grim, but they're honest :(

I absolutely loved the atmosphere. Swimming through space wasn't boring when you could just let the feel of the music and broken scenery wash over you. This had an element of exploration and openness that really felt vast, despite the length of the game. I'm not sure I totally got the message, though. Is the dismal, desperate struggle in zero-gravity supposed to be about how it feels to go through gender dysphoria?

REGARDLESS the negative reviews have to say about your game I'm overly impressed for your first game you make something unique that stands out and my god the music/sound pulled me in I am quiet impressed. I can tell you put a lot of hours and passion into this game I'm so impressed. forgive me for gushing I'm just so impressed that out of all the usual norms of games I run across I find one that stands out.

**also** Your Majora Mask Pictures Is my desktop background has been for a few months now lol IRONIC.
