TtM mobile version first look!
« on: August 02, 2016, 09:21:41 PM »
Hey guys, some cool news -- after all this time, To the Moon's finally coming to mobile! For both iOS & Android too :) The mobile version is being made by a company called X.D. Network, and they're remaking it in another engine with a painting-like style of graphics.

Usually I'm kinda sketchy on "HD remakes" and etc. (like with the somewhat recent FF mobile ports), but I just got the first look screenshots, and this is actually turning out quite neat so far:







Hope y'all like how it's looking so far! I'm pretty excited to see how it goes myself. :deepstuff: It'd be neat to see the game in a different light to say the least.

P.S. They'll be preserving the music, of course.

Wow, looks pretty cool! I'm not a huge fan of mobile games, but this seems really interesting! I especially like how there's a (comparatively) high-definition paint style for most of it, while some of the elements are more or less the same as in the original game (e.g. Anya, Sarah & Tommy, the bread basket), as it helps preserve the feel of the original game (along with the color scheme). And I agree, it's cool seeing the game in a different light (I can only imagine what it's like to see your own work in a different light :D )

Glad to know the music will be the same! Do you know if the dialogue will be the same, or if there will be any significant changes to the mechanics and/or storyline?

Cheers :) Oh, the dialogues should be the same. Although, since they're remaking it, some of the scenes' actions might look a bit different -- with the painting style, potentially better in some way, though!

I can't quite imagine how the 'Beta-B' scene with the spikes and Zombievas will play out on mobile.  Must be a little hard to navigate...

Still, good news that it'll reach other platforms. :)

I guess that scene should be made way easier on mobile

If you mess up, you can always pay $5 to try again or wait 24 hours!

Hey Mr. Developer, will this "remake" also be available for the PC and will the minisodes be included in the "remake"?

$0.99 per plant bullet to shoot at the zombievas. :P They've been really good to staying true to the original spirit so far though; pretty sure those wouldn't happen.

I was actually also kinda worried about the reception of the graphics in a way at first (a change of any sort and all), but so far I'm really pleasant surprised at all the positivity! I do know they're gonna revamp some mechanics and etc. too; and seeing the preview video's footage, it seems like some maps have been adjusted a bit instead of a copy-paste tile for tile too -- prob a good thing, since many of the original stuff wouldn't work well on mobile to begin with. :)

@Turk:
PC's not in the plans at the moment. As for the minisodes, they might!

I think it looks good enough. The screenshots are twice or more as big as the screens of android devices people will play it on, so even if there are some inconsistencies, they probably won't be noticeable.

Can you feel the hype tonight?
I don't really care about the graphics since they were already achieved once, as long as the script is the same I am good to go! If it were to change a bit by editing or whatnot, I might be even more hyped. Plus I still have the original on my computer. I'll never be unoccupied again - now I get to analyze the feels on the go!

To the Moon will feel right at home on mobile devices.
Although you should expect some in-app-purchase addicts to write reviews on App stores complaining about "endless walls of texts" ;)

As for the graphics in the HD remake, they look nice and pretty faithful to the original pixel arts so far!
