DescriptionI wish I were the Moon is the first game in the Moon Stories trilogy and it is a short puzzle game inspired by Enigma's song Sitting on the Moon and the short story The Distance of the Moon from the book Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino, where sailors set out on the sea to find the place where the moon touches the water. The game is about an unusual love triangle between a boy, a girl and the moon.
At the start of the game, the girl is rowing a boat, while the boy is sitting on top of the moon above her. The entire game is played in a single, non-scrolling screen. Rather than a physical place, the author aims to present it as an emotional image. The player can control the events through a camera controlled by the mouse. When a picture is taken, whatever is depicted inside the frame can be moved somewhere else to relocate it. That way, the player can influence the people, objects and environments to find five different game endings. Discovering the endings is the aim of the game itself, there are no other goals. After completing an ending the R key can be used to rewind the setting to try something new.
As it was submitted as an entry to the Independent Game Festival 2009, in November 2008 an updated version was released with tweaked settings, two new endings and a secret ending.
