My hope for the sequel is that you ignore all the story suggestions and just do whatever it is you did to create the masterpiece you presented to all of us. The story was great, the characters were great, and the pacing was great. If you do that again in the sequel you'll have another winner.

The only suggestions I hope you're taking to heart are mechanical ones. I'd like to see an options menu. One where you can control sound, volume, and screen size. I prefer all games in full screen. I get that it's a 16 bit game, I'm not asking for high resolution textures or anything, but I'd like to see the game displayed in full screen without it stretching like crazy on widescreen monitors.

I think most monitors are wide screens these days, it's worth taking into consideration. I don't think it would be that difficult to have a set of monitor resolution options available to correct for stretching.

I agree with Celynn

I am extremely envious becuase you can write a much better story than I could ever dream of doing.  The only thing I can think of story wise is adding more characters/memories, unless she lived forever, Johns Mums death must have been a significant part of his life, or perhaps her mental detoriation should have been highlighted.

But as for gameplay, either lose the puzzles or at least make them different and slightly taxing.

That's the single best suggestion I've seen so far. But it needs something... hmmmmmmmm.... AHA!

First time posting here.  I completed To the Moon.  It is by far the best story in a game I have EVER had the privilege to experience.

About the suggestions:
I know this is a post concerning changes or additions for episode two, but honestly... I really don't have one.  This game was OBVIOUSLY story driven.  If you'll listen to what Kan has said in the past, he had a story to tell and wanted to do that through this game... We can ALL agree that he accomplished this objective.

Kan, in To the Moon you told a story that was truly touching, grabbing at the heart strings of everyone who played it.  The way you brought everything together in the end was done with perfection.  Even though, as I stated above, this is a thread pertaining to ideas for the next episode I plead to you for the sake of this amazing title - don't change much at all.

1.) Tell a story that is just as touching as the first.
2.) Use amazingly paralleled music to help enhance the emotion needed for each scene.
3.) As much as you want to add to the game, do not pull away from what makes the story-line original, specific, and unique to everyone who has played it.

I believe that if you continue to do these three things, this entire series will remembered by most who play it to be one of the best series of their liking.

One question - Have you thought of working with Laura for a "complete worded" version of the song To the Moon for the next game?  In my opinion, it is the staple for the game's emotional catch in the trailer.

Well considering the song is named after the first episode, I don't know if it should be included as a full track on the second one. Unless the new game is called To The Moon 2 :P

I think I've read in another topic that Eva had the song as ringtone at the end or something? maybe we'll hear it there. But unless the new patient happened to listen Johnny play piano I guess it would be out of place to have the song. Maybe a few nods in some other tracks would be cool.

That being said, a full worded version of it, for example, as a bonus track in the soundtrack would definitely epic.

Actually the second episode is calle-[headshot by Kan]
[respawn]
I WAS GOING TO SAY IT'S CALLED SOMETHING ELSE. Oh, the song possibilities. :-*

Maybe the series should be called Sigmund. You know, because it's generic and throws people off.

It's called Headshot by Kan?

That sounds like a perfume name or something.

First thing that came to mind was a mugshot of Kan (y'know, because its mainly the face/head). What'cha being doin' Reivesy? don't turn to the dark side on us

Jude, this is what you should've said:
