Rated 2 / 5 stars

the guy below said exactly what i wanted,but better. the walking speed irritated me,the lack of story was also disturbing. the only reason i'm still giving this 2 stars is because it scared me a few times.

So, to access the SECRET ROOM you're supposed to click something when you first enter that corridor on DAY 3. And, as TrollMoon said (fitting name), the passwords are 12cly90pov2, 274091, 0, 8, and 12 99 70 51 59 12 77 0a. I needed to get all medals to truly see if I was missing something and this was actually a good game. It wasn't.

I won't deny the sound is awesome. The art is pretty good too. But these things do not redeem this game from being what it is. I know why I don't like it, I don't really know why it bothers me this much, so I'll stick to what I do know.

The walking is too slow. Saying it's realistic won't do no good here. There is no realistic game in the whole universe. There's only designer choices as to where to be realistic and how much. You chose to have unrealistic sounds: noise that doesn't exist in the fictional world but the player can hear. You chose to make an unrealistic visual representation: you made it 2D, you made it pixelated. You chose to make you character take unrealistic choices: things that help you tell your story but don't make no sense from the point of view of how a guy on the moon would behave. You chose to make him walk at a realistic speed.

The sounds and graphics are GOOD unrealistic elements. The weird choices John makes are BAD unrealistic elements. And the super slow walking speed is a BAD realistic element. This should be a gold rule: if having a realistic walking speed is detrimental to the experience you're trying to convey, why not have an UNrealistic walking speed? How could that be bad, if it makes the whole thing better, more enjoyable, less infuriating?

The plot. It's not that good. You took the basic premise of a lot of excellent movies and you took away everything those films ADDED to that premise to have an actually interesting story. So you have a guy on the moon who's alone and starts to question his sanity. OK. What else? All those movies you quote aren't good because they have a mad dude on the moon, they're good because of the things that happen AFTER the audience meets the guy on the moon. Your game basically presents its cliché premise and leaves it at that. Doesn't add anything.

A previous review got it pretty right: the game's message is "John sees things", and I would add "and then he freaks out". Nothing more. On Day 1 I learn John sees things and freaks out. On Day 2 the game informs me that John sees things that freak him out. On Day 3 John sees some serious things and totally freaks out. On Day 4 John is totally freaked out. Why have four different instances to say over and over the exact same thing, that the player will understand perfectly right at Day 1's end? Wouldn't've been better to have John seeing things on Day 1 (and freaking out) and then giving us a little more information about the nature of this visions? Oh, but it would've, it totally would've.

Then there's the secret room. Everything that could make this game original and separated from the film sources, disappears when the secret room is basically an image from the film Moon and a short text simply repeating the game's "Author Comments".

This game has no story, it's just a premise. If you know the story of what's happening and why John sees a weird version of himself who talks funny, then by all means don't keep it to yourself, share it with us. I'm sure it would be an awesome story. I'm not even asking for a definitive answer, just some indications that there's more to it than just a guy who hallucinates with himself.

It's not great as a game and it's not great as a movie, so being a movie/game won't save it, it's just bad twice. I genuinely LOVE art games, most of 'em anyway, so I can take a lot of mystery and press-spacebar-to-win and anti-fun stuff, but this is too much. Even the most artsy games should have EITHER gameplay OR a story OR player choices OR AT THE SUPER LEAST a change of scenery, like AwkwardSilence's "The Body", which lacks everything but this last thing, and still manages to be pretty cool. Your MOON on the other hand, lacks just about everything.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

-1.5 stars for that awful walking animation. This is what I have to watch for almost the entire game? it looks like a joke! Seriously I can get over not having jump or anything else to do because the story is interesting, but that walk animation is completely awful.
Speaking of jokes, -.5 stars for "The Moon Inc." This also sounds like something from a parody and is not appropriate for this type of horror deal.
Finally when I came to a button at the end of a halway full of lamps posts, I began to try guessing a code for "LIFE" (I began typing in LIFE with shift held down) and the game restarted from the beginning. This is a very serious bug and it has caused me not to be able to play the game anymore.
It's really too bad that these crippling problems are bogging down a game that seems otherwise pretty cool and dark (if slightly poorly translated). I was enjoying the story a lot until I ran into this bug - 2.5 stars in total.
