Ready for more adventuring that might make you need a tissue to dry your eyes? Freebird Games are back for the third game in the To The Moon series with Impostor Factory.

Described as a "bonkers time-loop tragicomedy murder mystery thriller featuring multiple casualties and a suspicious cat" I still don't quite get if it's a sequel, a prequel or what. The good thing is you don't need to know either, as it's playable completely standalone to their previous games. This time the story is focused on a character named Quincy, who was invited to some sort of party at a suspicious secluded mansion that has a time machine in the bathroom and somewhere along the way people start dying.

Looks like the native Linux build had a couple of compatibility issues when it first went out, which the developer seems to have resolved in record time. Wonderful to see how active they are at ensuring it works well for Linux gamers.

You can buy Impostor Factory on Steam.

That's time travel for you.

I'm not sure my emotions can take the ending of the Ubuntu Podcast and the release of a new Kan Gao game on the same day.

What a weird coincidence! Yesterday I happened to look at my collection of GOG games, see A Bird Story and think, "I've been meaning to play that" before realizing it was the second game they made and that I should play To the Moon first, and so I started it.

And so far I've been really enjoying it. It's very bizarre at times, and also quite touching.

My review from back when I played To The Moon:

It's pixelated, it's ugly, scrolling is bumpy, controls are broken, path finding doesn't work, the puzzles are superfluous, pacing is bad, the action sequences are nonsense, the jokes sometimes fall flat...

... but it's wonderful game about

Looking forward for the next one.

I'm pretty sure Finding Paradise is the second game. A Bird's Story is a short and AFAIK not part of the To The Moon Series.

It is a little side story for Finding Paradise that was released before it. Not mandatory, but definitely related.

I have (nearly) exactly the opposite view.

It has a cute pixel-art look, no issues with the puzzles or the pacing. The action sequences I could do without, yeah

The story starts great, yeah, I like it, but...

Spoiler, click me
the story it's all completely made void by the fact that it's not real. It's not a time-travel story, he's not connecting with his former SO, he's just imagining it. It's not real, it's fake, it's a lie, so in the end, it has no bearing on reality, it has no meaning.
