Looking into the trailer some more, it would seem to me that the first screenshot indicates that a guitarist had died. Perhaps his first wife or someone he had an infatuation with was a guitarist https://www.facebook.com/FreebirdGames/photos/a.271787352836902.91072.257613620920942/1606723129343311/?type=3&theater It just seems to me that the guitar is going to be a big focus, and knowing Kan, it's going to be associated with something very emotional. For instance, the guitarist could still be alive, and the guy wonders what life would have been like had he gone with her, instead of having a child and being forced to stay with his current wife. On a lighter note though, it seems to me that the instrument and gender roles of the characters could lead to some real life collaboration. I predict that the To The Moon series is going to turn out to have just been a means for Kan to get closer to Laura Shigihara. The finale will end with Kan's marriage proposal XD

River: *Drops hacky sack*
River: "Can you throw this is as far as where Anya's at?"
John: "I can try."
John: "(Now I'll amaze her with my feat of strength.)"
John: *Throws hacky sack into ocean*
River: *Runs to cliff edge*
John: "River! Stop looking at my awesome throw and get away from that ledge!"
River: *Backs into John and silently sits down*
John: "(...Nailed it.)"

I actually wondered if they liked each other :P Well, whether it be true or not, atleast it a happier ending than what we think the finale of the To the Moon series will be.

With the publication date being about a year away, Reives likely still has lots to do about the game, so he wouldn't have anything final to show for right now anyway. So I'd expect a trailer to come out when the game is done or nearly done.

A cello is what the guy's playing. We're talking about the guitar on the ground and the guitar in the chick's hands in that one screenshot.

Ayy necroposts ftw  XD

So this got posted by Reives on Twitter (art: Alisa Christopher)
Some stuffs to notice:
-Eva and Neil are in similar places as the To The Moon poster (also by AC), so their roles in the story are probably going to be about the same as before.
-There is now someone standing above the bed, but it's Colin, unlike in the former game's poster where John, the client, was the one in the bed.
-Whoever is in the bed has wireframe visible on them; the machine is projecting an image of someone sleeping in their bed. Looks like a woman, maybe his wife.
-Both people are slightly reduced in opacity.
Also, the Steam page for Finding Paradise is up, with some new info: http://store.steampowered.com/app/337340
Most of it is stuff he's already said, but there's a couple of new lines:
"It follows the life of the doctors' new patient, Colin, as they attempt to unravel a life that is split down the middle, and fulfill a wish that appears to be self-contradictory by nature." - Reives
A life split down the middle? Depending on how you look at it, that would either suggest a double-life or a life where one half was literally spent one way, and the other half was lived in an entirely different manner. The latter would support the idea that something happened to Guitar Girl (she doesn't have an announced name, so I'm just going to call her that now...) or Colin was separated from her, changing the direction of the second half of his life. The former would make Colin look kind of shifty...but it could also be pulled off well.
What about a wish that appears self-contradictory by nature? If the wish is, put in simple terms, to "Find Paradise", following the literal title format that To The Moon had, that would certainly make things a little easier. At least we don't have to look for a wish that is self-contradictory on our own. Now it's just a matter of figuring out "how".
Well, I was thinking that Charlene may be able to help us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3arEmkXZ8s
"I've never been to me" is about a woman who wasn't able to settle down, and roamed from place to place in search of...what? Paradise, or so she thought. And she found it, but she wasn't happy. She couldn't find herself, hence "never been to me". You guys probably already knew that, though.
"Hey, you know what paradise is?
It's a lie. A fantasy we create about people and places as we'd like them to be.
But you know what truth is?
It's that little baby you're holding,
And it's that man you fought with this morning.
The same one you're going to make love with tonight.
That's truth, that's love."
Uh oh. Colin is asking for something that looks like it will take him away from true happiness when his wish is supposed to take him towards it! Yet, the wishes Sigmund Corp grants are lies by default. They are "paradise". They are a fantasy, so what does it actually mean in the end? I don't know.
Colin wants to find paradise, but paradise is not really paradise...???

I totally forgot about this thread ^^;

The poster kinda confuses me though. Isn't Colin supposed to be the one in the bed?

If you'll notice, there's a wireframe version of a girl in a bed hovering over the machine. So I think it might be implying that we're seeing in the memory-scape being produced by the machine.

The last accessible memory, perhaps?
Also, that close-up of the memory machine in the poster is much appreciated  :) cause now I know how to draw it!

That's correct, Colin is the patient. Therefore this picture has to be in a memory.
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...
Every drop leaves ripples.
