To The Moon made me cry.

Ostensibly a retro-flavoured adventure game that see you working backwards through the memories of a dying man to help him die with no regrets, this little indie gem is frankly masterful. It's cheap as chips over on the Humble Store right now, and if you have a small gap in your gaming schedule before silly season kicks off, definitely think about picking it up.

Top Ten Tuesdays | Ten Games That Made Me Cry

I was chatting to a friend of mine the other day about The Last of Us, and how one of the best things about the game is that it grabs you right from the start with that incredibly powerful opening fifteen minutes, and how he found himself shedding a tear or two at the culmination of the prologue, such was it's impact.

I cry at films and books and the occasional piece of music a fair bit. Not necessarily because what I'm taking in fills me with a sense of sadness, it's more that I find myself rather susceptible to emotional overloads, particularly when there are multiple forces at work. You'd perhaps expect, then, that games by their very nature would be even more successful at eliciting such an emotional response, but it's a difficult thing to pull off.

Not for the following ten games, mind.

NB. Be aware that there are some pretty major spoilers for a number of games after the jump.

A Bird Story: New Details & Debut Trailer

To The Moon Sequel Gets A Prequel

To The Moon 2 is still happening, but Freebird Games are also working on a spiritual sequel to their thought-provoking indie masterpiece that's set in the same universe. Unlike its predecessor, A Bird Story will feature no traditional dialogue, instead telling a simple and poignant story about a young boy and an injured bird in non-traditional ways. According to a new blog post, the protagonist will eventually become the patient in To The Moon 2. Thus making this a prequel for a sequel.

See what you make of the reveal 'trailer,' which is admittedly little more than the title screen and intro music. Definitely sets the tone if nothing else, ahead of a "mid-2013" release date.

To The Moon | £2.37 | Steam | PC

  • What: To The Moon
  • Where: Steam
  • Current Price: £2.37
  • RRP: £9.99

To The Moon tells a truly exceptional story, one that's life affirming, tragic, uplifting and utterly memorable. If you haven't bought it already, you really should, but do be aware that it's more like an interactive novel with a retro RPG aesthetic rather than a gamey game full of gameplay.

What's the problem? Afraid you might feel something?

Underdogs Of 2011 | Top Ten Games You Didn't Buy

2011 has brought us some massive games and shattered sales records with merry abandon, but the fact is that a huge number of deserving titles managed to slip under our gaming radar into pitiful ignominy. So, in the true spirit of Christmas, it's time that we championed the underdogs: the games you probably didn't buy - or even notice - throughout the last twelve months.

Before we begin, you need to understand that this list is not an objective measure of raw quality. Instead, we passed these games though a hungover discussion after our Christmas do totally amazing top-secret algorithm that also takes sales figures and how little a splash they made in the mainstream gaming consciousness into account.

10: Steel Diver [3DS]

Underdogs Of 2011 | Top Ten Games You Didn't Buy

Steel Diver is by far the best handheld submarine sim on the market. Erm, which is probably a good thing despite the complete lack of competition. Shigeru Miyamoto's pet project completely failed to make a splash (ha!), but for a niche audience, it's really rather compelling.

9: Sideway: New York [PSN & PC]

Underdogs Of 2011 | Top Ten Games You Didn't Buy

Many gamers were probably deterred by Sideway's too cool for school urban vibe, but the fact is that Playbrains crafted a superb downloadable platformer that blends Jet Set Radio's funky style with the most imaginative premise we've seen in some time: being a work of art on a brick wall. The unique gravity shifting and multidimensional mechanics should have ensured that gamers treated this title with respect and eagerly-opened wallets. Check out our 8/10 review.
