If you're familiar with the charming RPG that is To The Moon, then you'll know pretty much what to expect from this title. It's actually a sort of prequel to the aforementioned game, which told a wonderfully original tale of bringing a dying man's dreams to life in his final days. However, while this one is equally as inventive in the narrative stakes, it also shares the earlier game's main fault, which is an almost entire lack of gameplay. The plot here revolves around a young boy and a bird with a broken wing, which might sound twee but proves to be quite enthralling. The whole thing is told entirely without words, making it an exercise in alternative storytelling as much as anything, and in this respect the game is successful. In terms of gameplay, you're presented with a top down view familiar from classic RPGs like Zelda, and the main focus here is on exploration and in following the plot as it meanders along. There really isn't any actual interactivity to speak of, other than guiding the character around and for many people, this is going to be pretty tedious stuff, especially if they are unprepared for it. However, if you go in expecting not be killing monsters or doing quests, and know that you are in for a truly heartfelt and genuinely moving experience, then you will get a lot out of this. The visuals are absolutely lovely, with beautiful character and environment work that really brings this magical tale to life. It is a short game, so you won't be 'playing' for hours but if you want a story that will move even the hardest of hearts, then this is for you.
