Released six years ago, To the Moon was one of the first games to prove how much quality there is in the modern indie scene. Its sequel, Finding Paradise, is finally releasing on Steam today, and has a new trailer to celebrate.

To the Moon is a story-driven adventure game in which two doctors fulfil a dying man’s last wish by traveling through, and tampering with, his life’s memories. If you appreciate the narrative side of games, you’ll find better writing and characterisation here than in most triple-A projects, with many surprising and deeply moving twists. You can pick it up for £6.99 ($9.99) on Steam here.
Developers Freebird have since released A Bird Story, a short, experimental episode told without dialogue, but Finding Paradise is the true sequel. We rejoin the two doctors as they tackle a new patient, Colin, whose last wish appears to be self-contradictory by nature.
Finding Paradise is on Steam here, and should unlock for purchase at 18:00 GMT (10:00 Pacific) today. That’s a slight delay on its initial release date of this summer, but personally, I’m no less excited.
