I love the art, and the storyline.. :)
Hi this game is so fucking great but it would be cool to make a downloadable version because there is some lag.
Good idea, although I can not promise that it will help 100% with the lag. I added a download link in the description.
so this may be the most artistic thing I've ever seen make front page on newgrounds. congrats and fantastic. the flying could have been faster/smoother though.
The spiritual predecessor of "Personal Trip to the Moon" is most definitely "Aether," also starring planet-hopping lost souls and cryptic remarks by side characters. In "Personal" we get to swim (in space, it's a big deal to Earth people) instead of swinging by the tongue. Now I'm suddenly aware of my tongue and you will suffer with me.
The first time I played, I ran around the moon quite a few times, feeling as if the person in the mirror had stood me up. The character moves a little slow, but music swells when you glide through the starry sky, which makes the long trip (key hold) worth it.
"Personal," like the best games about loneliness and death, ends in uncertainty, but not without small, touching moments. The girl on the moon gives the player a thermal shield. It's lovely. It's enough.
It's quite a nice game, the music was good and the screens ressembling old tv's and NASA footages was pretty nice too, but the main theme of the game is a lil' sad. I have a friend who has dysphoria and I'd be afraid if she played the game it would give wrong signals in a way.
