Finding Paradise

Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live, all the way from the very beginning... but only in their patients' heads.
Due to the severity of the operation, the new life becomes the last thing the patients remember before drawing their last breath. Thus, the operation is only done to people on their deathbeds, to fulfill what they wish they had done with their lives, but didn’t.
Finding Paradise is the 2nd full episode of To the Moon's series. It follows the life of the doctors' new patient, Colin, as they attempt to unravel a life that is split down the middle, and fulfill a wish that appears to be self-contradictory by nature.

  • Finding Paradise is a memorable experience that may last me a lifetime, like a good book or film. The care placed into each scene is one of the reasons why Finding Paradise is such a masterpiece. Each string of dialogue, each reference to other games, every joke, and every pixel — they all feel deliberate and labored over, yet also so smoothly executed, as if effortless.

  • Finding Paradise is the sequel that To the Moon deserved.

  • Finding Paradise is simply a narrative masterpiece that knows how to discuss important topics like the search of happiness. A significant maturity growth in Kan Gao's writing.

  • Finding Paradise is another well-told and profoundly meaningful story in the To The Moon saga. An amazing soundtrack, great artwork and clever, realistic writing all come together to bring this charming, touching and deeply human tale to life.

  • The characters are profoundly written, have a lot of heart, and the story is as sad as it is exhilarant. […] I recommend Finding Paradise (and the predecessor To the Moon and the connecting piece A Bird Story) to everyone who loves well-written characters and thrilling stories und has no problem with the almost non-existent gameplay.

  • In our life as gamers, in fact, Finding Paradise has impressed as a memory that can never be erased.

  • Thanks to a very good story, Finding Paradise is another masterpiece from Kan Gao. Different from To The Moon, this new game explores the great themes of human nature, and it's absolutely unforgettable.

  • To the Moon's sequel delivers again a beautiful story that goes beyond our expectations. If you want to live a story about life and happiness, play it.

  • Finding Paradise is a simple game, but convinces with its emotional and unusual story as well as the clever humor.

  • Including the prequel game To the Moon, works from Freebird Games are always highly personalized and artistic. Gameplay is not one of the goals that they want to achieve. They're just eager to tell audience an affecting story. And of course, Finding Paradise is a huge success.

  • CD-Action

    Finding Paradise is not as heartbreaking as To the Moon but still arouses strong emotions and encourages reflection. [02/2018, p.50]

  • Finding Paradise continues doctor Watts and Rosamune's journey with and interesting narrative adventure. The plot is beautifully told through bright dialogues and nice character construction, but gameplay feels very basic.

  • Edge Magazine

    It's an interesting tale, it's mystery and fuzzy chronology giving it a constant, momentum. [March 2018, p.120]

  • Finding Paradise comes with the same formula as To the Moon, making all the surprises that we expected disappear. However, thanks to its wonderful narrative, it still is an amazing adventure that will make you shed a tear.

  • Though admittedly light on gameplay, the strength of Finding Paradise’s characters, story and music will easily sweep you into its universe. It’s a worthy successor to To the Moon, telling a distinct, beautiful, and impactful story that will have you in tears by the end … and eagerly wondering what comes next.

  • This game makes the point that the more ordinary moments are truly what define us.

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • An interesting input and gorgeous musics aren’t enough to make Finding Paradise a pleasant and emotional experience like To The Moon was. Believable characters are shadowed by a linear and repetitive structure and by a story unable to stand up on its own.
