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&eacute;bastien 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.


super creative, super simple, super deep, makes u wanna cry

i really enjoyed the noir atmosphere, the music fits perfectly making it really emotional, yes its slow but thats okay i think its more art then "i gotta get through this!!1!", really good work!

Great atmosphere! (no pun intended). I really liked the scene direction, and music selection was spot on. Keep up the good work!

A very good game. Whilst there may not be entirely to much to do in the game, this really isn't the kind of game for that. That mental stability of the character was dynamic and kept me rethinking my predictions. At first, I thought the girl was a lost love and social interaction in a desolate and lonely world. The dying astronaut accepting his demise and taking in the beauty of the world one last time was a scene that for some reason I can't put my finger on, expressed a lot in this game. Awesome choice in music, I looked it up afterwards and love it. Once I had landed back and started turning to the girl I figured the rest of the 30 seconds left out. Though I don't really personally understand much about the mental boy/girl state, I did understand the traumatic change in the character after their "Personal trip to the moon". I'm not sure what to think of helping the astronauts, whether it represented helping yourself understand who you were by overcoming the obstacles in life, or whether it was just to add something more to it than a 3 minute cutscene, music, fly, and talk game. Great game, 4.5 out of 5.
