Find­ing Par­adise

EDGE - - HYPE - De­vel­oper/ pub­lisher Freebird Games For­mat PC Ori­gin Canada Re­lease Late 2016/ early 2017


Kan Gao’s fol­low-up to the tear-jerk­ing To The Moon is built upon the same cen­tral idea: two doc­tors ven­ture into a pa­tient’s sub­con­scious in or­der to re­alise their dy­ing wish. In this in­stance, the pa­tient is the young boy from 2014 in­terquel A Bird Story many years on. Though Gao in­sists it’s an en­tirely self-con­tained nar­ra­tive, he sug­gests that those who’ve played both games will ben­e­fit from the ad­di­tional con­text. While A Bird Story oc­ca­sion­ally tilted into mawk­ish­ness, To The Moon nav­i­gated the fine line be­tween sad­ness and sen­ti­men­tal­ity with grace and poise. Ei­ther way, you should start stock­ing up on Kleenex.
