This is for maybe the game that made me the most emotional I have ever been. The game is called To the moon. I haven't played it for myself, but I watched cry play, and oh mai... I bawled my eyes out. My mom had to check on me every ten minutes or so to see if I was ok! This game is so absolutely gorgeous, and even though at first I thought the game seemed boring, continueing it was probably one of the best things I have done in my life XD

You guys need to watch someone play this series! If you are, watch cry! Pewdiepie just tried to make it funny. But one thing, even pewdiepie had to turn off the camera to cry. That's how sad it is!


I was highly dissapointed in the ending. I was happy John died peaceful, but I mean... River tried to get him to remember being with her sooooo long! She always made those bunnies, if any of you guys remember. After all of that, he never remembered. They could've just made him remember the early memories that were blocked! He would've been happy! I just got to thinking and I remembered how River resisted him and always talked about lighthouses, it wasn't because of her disease, it was because she was upset he didn't remember anything! One thing that brings me to peace is that it is just what he thinks happened, and River still had the happy life she wanted with John.

But anyway, I don't know why this game doesn't have more fanart, popularity, etc. I just can't wait until the second one comes out. I think I will be playing that time!

Never the less, rest in peace River and John, you guys have seriously put me through so many tissue boxes, but you deserve to be together on the moon. I am so happy you guys will spend eternity there, together <3

Nobody likes it to end but at some point it has to everything ends the only thing that lasts is the memories we share and the moments we've burned into time itself.

I just finished watching Cry play it today. I was in so many tears, hearing his reaction made it worse xD

I agree with you though! It made me sad that River tried so hard to get him to remember, it broke my heart when I realized that. She died thinking he'd never be the same as when they met </3 Even if he died thinking they went to the moon together, its still so heart-wrenching. 

What really got me was when the memories were changed, and she wasn't in there for him anymore. I was bawling in the break room at work XD It was just so sad <3

But, the picture is beautiful. You've done wonderfully

I went through the game once, but I was busy at the time. It didn't affect me a while lot. (I still cried) then I got really bored the other day, so I watched Cry's entire playthrough in more or less one sitting. This was a huge mistake. I am looking at this picture right now, sitting in a puddle of my own tears. This is my life right now. What am I doing with my life? :iconlazycryplz: 

Anyways, this is a lovely picture. Reading the description now, I suddenly know now about the rabbits. It flew over my head before, but now I'm sad all over again. And I'm out of tissues D:

(I am hyper emotional as you can probably tell)

Love your artwork. :) To The Moon is really an emotional game with alot to show you in life. I was touched by it & had tears in the end. So when I get a Windows 8 & get Skyrim, I'll make this game my first mod mission. Its silly but hey the dragonborn would of found a way to give John & River a happy ending. :)

I still dont understand the connection between River and John's twin brother,Joey....does this mean if John didnt meet River...then Joey will be alive?
Shadowrainbows Featured By Owner May 26, 2013
It really think that if the mom would have not run over her son.Then the John ended up as the John in his "new" life.And met River and Nasa and live a happy life(compared to the previous one ;__;)as a couple an build the fricking house with Joey.And probably did what they couldn't do in the real life not the fake one.Eva you fudging messed up.It's just sad.;__;

Awwwe's This game DOES need more fan art, it was such a pretty story! I LOVED IT WITH A PASSION OuO

And once you realize that river lived all her life trying to get John to remember everything, It really makes u sad.

"Describe it."

"Uh er, well its just like all the other paper bunnies you made."

"What else?"

He never remembered TuT Not even with that last little bunny T3T The whole game just seems to tie together at the end, and its really pretty, even though it didn't happen, the thing about Joey too, how he never REALLY lived all his life and got to write a book, but John died, thinking he had...its sinister in a way...changing the way people think that they lived their lives. Don't ya think? XD

But wow, such an amazing game, and I found it unique and outstanding~

GREAT FAN ART OuO Those lyrics add a really nice touch! >Wo

Words would not be able to describe the feelings this fantastically amazing game had implied me throughout.By far a much emotional novel-shaped video game,which afflicted naught only my mind,but as well my eyes(By crying that is...).If there will ever be another game which is similar with ''To The Moon",I'll have my tissues prepared alongside me.
May your souls Rest in Peace John and River,by far a much touching story... <3
