Is this series going to be a trilogy?
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:30:43 AM »
Before I played To The Moon I was just a typical CoD and Halo bro gamer then I got tired of military FPS and searched for a game that would prove to me that video games are art. To The Moon went above and beyond in answering that question. I never thought a video game could have that amount of emotion.

Does Kan Gao plan to make this a trilogy or is there more stories planned?

All we know for now is that at least one more entry is planned for the series.
If a 4th one is going to be made will probably be answered in the credits of the next game.
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...

Oh I think there's gonna be more than 3 but I'm not sure how many there's gonna be on the complete series (also it's a lot of work for Kan so maybe not too long?)

All I know is that if our theories are correct, the last episode is probably gonna be the saddest :noahtear:

I'm gonna guess there'll be a few more.

When is the third game coming out?

Currently unknown,
if past games are any evidence, probably 2023 with some smaller releases inbetween. xD

"To The Moon" and "finding paradise didn't look that complicated to make.A year I could understand but 5?
Why would a 2D top down game (like the other two games mentioned above) take that long to make?

- a lot is done by just one person
- there were other projects inbetween (e.g. A Bird Story, 2 miniepisodes, getting the anime started)
- there was personal stuff inbetween (e.g. Kan got married)
- you underestimate the amount of work a game needs, even if it's top down 2D RPG Maker (composing music, creating pixelart for maps, characters and animations, soundeffects, mapping, event scripting, storywriting&dialogue, testing, bugfixing, managing the different platforrms (like Steam) and translations, marketing, interviews/PR, running the company (legal&financal stuff), community interactions). It does add up quickly.
- like all creative projects there might be phases with not much progress (writers block)

It certainly could be done faster than 5 years, but promising this might just lead to disappointment.

The third game might even be a little extra time because Kan is working on engine stuff:

Should be a positive change for the future though!

I'd say FP took around 3 years, and To the Moon 2. There were stuff between them (A Bird Story, minisodes, and other projects) that took up the slots.

For the engine stuff, it's currently in development mainly by another in-house programmer, but won't be used for the next game (it's for the one after). :)
