Deliver Us the Moon

SDS

If anyone is looking for a short palate cleanser before The Show 21 comes out, I highly recommend Deliver Us the Moon if you haven't played it yet. It will be on Xbox Game Pass until April 15th, and it only takes 4-6 hours to complete.

Without giving away too much of the story, it's a sci-fi thriller set in the near future where Earth's resources are depleted. Humans were using the moon as an energy source, but the colony there is no longer responding and energy is no longer being transmitted. It is up to you to head to the moon, investigate the lunar outposts, figure out what happened, and try to fix the reactor.

There are some tense situations, but for the most part you are just exploring and solving puzzles in order to progress to the next area. There are documents and audio logs to find which do a solid job of filling in past events.

If you don't have Game Pass, you can still get it on PSN for $25. That's a bit steep for a short game with little replay value in my opinion, so you may want to wait for a sale. A PS5 version was also just announced about a week ago.

The reviews are great to fantastic; will make sure to grab it when it gets on sale on the PS store. Never heard of it; thanks for the heads up.

It is a very good game. I have played it twice. Once I believe in early access and then again when it was finished up. Bit of a walking sim/adventure with some not too difficult puzzles.
