Deliver Us The Moon is set in an apocalyptic near future where Earth’s natural resources are depleted. In an effort to solve the energy crisis, world leaders created the World Space Agency and secured a promising new source of energy on the moon.
During this adventure, your only companion is a small robot named ASE. Together you will traverse the moon, explore abandoned facilities, gather clues and ultimately uncover the secrets and hidden agendas of those long gone.
Will you save mankind or be forgotten in the dark abyss of Space?
You are a rogue astronaut undertaking a secret mission to travel to the moon, fix the faulty equipment, find out what happened to the previous crew that had been stationed there, and to basically save the earth, all by yourself! No pressure at all, right?
You will not get closer to feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders as you will in this game. The story is so well executed that you get fully immersed, and it makes you feel the urgency to the mission, and the need to push forward no matter what.
Apart from the music, which accompanied the tone of the story really well, and voices from holograms, each area is pretty quiet, which makes you wonder if it would be like that for real. Eerie. Your only companion is an AI named ASE – and in moments, you can sense its emotional responses to things.
The graphics on the PS5 version were crisp and clear, and apart from a few buggy moments when entering a new area, or waiting a little too long for the game to reload after death – the game was perfect.
The character perspective switches from first person to third at certain moments, like tight spaces or when re-aligning an MPT tower, but I didn’t feel this affected my experience, in fact, it added to it as I had to slightly adjust my play style accordingly.
Even though this game is pretty short, at roughly 5-7 hours to platinum, there’s a lot to do. The puzzles are fairly simple and if you’ve read any of my other reviews, you know how much I suck at puzzles – but these were fun to figure out, which didn’t take that long.
One of the things I love about getting the platinum trophy in a game, is being able to learn almost everything about that game and all its hidden beauties; and this game does not disappoint. There are plenty of shocking moments, in more ways than one, as you uncover what happened to everyone on the moon.
- Little buggy
A very sweet but short game – great concept with immersive storytelling. Easy platinum at only 5-7 hours. Recommended experience.
