It's a new year, but the Moving Pixels podcast revisits an indie darling that refashions a game out of the remains of a bygone era of gaming.
Using RPG Maker XP, To the Moon was fashioned out of the imagery and basic exploration mechanics of the sprite-based era of RPG games.
Less an RPG game, though, and perhaps more honestly a piece of interactive fiction with some light puzzle mechanics, what it does have in common with RPGs of that era is a commitment to telling a very human story despite its simple graphics and character sprites.
Join us for a discussion of To the Moon.
