To the Moon developer Freebird Games has released a special 20-minute long mini-episode for its emotional adventure.
This mini-episode is designed to play from start to finish in one sitting, according to creator Kan Gao, as it has no save feature or menus of any kind. It takes place during the holiday season, at the local branch of Sigmund Corp where Eva & Neil are employed.
Gao also commented on the status of Freebird’s next title, A Bird Story. “I know it’s been repeatedly delayed, and I apologize for that. To be honest, I don’t really know when exactly it’ll be finished,” he said. “It’s not that long of a game at all, but there are things in it that I’m just still trying to figure out. It’s also something that means a lot to me personally, and I don’t want to compromise how it turns out.
“All I can say is that a lot has been done for it already, and that it will be finished when it’s ready; I will try my best. In the mean time, thank you all for your patience and understanding.”
Players interested in trying this latest addition can download it directly from Freebird’s website. A patch has also been released for the Steam version of the game, but to play it you will have to manually open the mini-episode from the game’s Steam folder.
