To the Moon was one of the finest and most interesting games of 2011. Part Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and part RPG, the series from Freebird Games was built in the RPG Maker engine. At launch, the game received critical acclaim and a lot of tears from those who played through the heart-wrenching story.
Since then, two followup titles were released: A Bird’s Story, in 2014 and Finding Paradise in 2017. Now, Freebird is working on delivering what is being teased as the final chapter of the To the Moon saga: Imposter Factory.
So what is the Imposter Factory? According to the game’s Steam page, it’s a narrative-driven adventure game that is categorically out of its mind. Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live their lives, all the way from the very beginning. But this isn’t their story. Probably.
Instead, this is about Quincy, and according to Freebird, is one day invited to a fancy party at a secluded mansion. In the bathroom is a time machine, which Quincy uses to time-travel and then people start dying because that’s what they do. And somewhere along the way, things get a little Lovecraftian and tentacles are involved.
Imposter Factory is set to launch at the end of 2020, and Freebird iterates this will likely mark the end of an era for the developer and the To the Moon series.
