Ode to a Moon





Ode to a Moon is a first person cosmic horror game currently in development. As photo-journalist for a popular tabloid, you’re tasked with covering a fall festival in a far away rural town during a centennial lunar eclipse. Camera in hand you set off to that romantic hamlet only to discover the macabre fallout of a town's descent into madness. It was inspired by real events and the belief that truth is stranger than fiction.

My favorite bit? All the fantastic and eclectic reading material. As a writer, I'm happy to see these included. Aside from that, I included it in my B&W horror anthology.

Absolutely outstanding experience! The visuals and sound sound design are in a league of their own.

I liked this game, so far. I played right now in Haunted PS1 Disc Demo. Is the ending different here? Well, let's see.

Protuguese(Brazil) version of playthrough. Thanks this masterpiece. Congratulations and I wish you keep up great arts.

That was such a great experience! Very unique atmosphere! At first I thought it had something to do with Lovecraft's "The Colour out of Space". I'm super excited to see the full game! Keep it up!

The game is beautiful.  The colors, the music, everything...  Just added the game to my wishlist on Steam, will be waiting for the release :) 

The pacing of the game works to the endings favor. It is mainly buildup with a few unsettling moments and then you get to this very creepy area. The climax (I won't spoil) is very well executed. Although this is only a demo, I look forward to the finished product. The game leaves a lot up for speculation with very few clues. Especially in the end, so many questions are raised. I hope colorfiction keeps up the good work and if you havent, you should definitely play this. Sincerely, a colorfiction fan.

I just saw it, and what a cool design!! Claps*


That was actually really cool. Something about this game is peaceful and aesthetically pleasing. Great job... gonna have to return to this one when my mind is right ;)

Amazing experience! Thank you!

This Was An Experience @colorfiction  ... Great Jobs : ) 

Absolutely gorgeous game, even when the horror elements kick in there is beauty in its destruction. Gameplay starts around 28:21.

I really enjoyed the strange places this game takes you, it feels like you're going on an adventure in a strange world.


Thank you and glad you enjoyed the trip!! btw just made all my prior games free for a couple months so highly recommend trying out 0n0w, different artstyle but tons of adventures in strange worlds :)


goddamn the visuals were beautiful. enjoyed every second of it

Haha thank so much!!

Freakin incredible. I was having trouble nagivating during  the final stages of the demo, ad everything was so distorted and dark i couldnt see where i was going. also, I translated what looked like morse code: T L N W W O W Z A (-/.-../-./.--/.--/---/.--/--../.-)

Thank you!! Yes noticed on some streams that the brightness is different (darker) from my monitor, should really add a brightness level. Haha getting close there with the translation ;)


I played this on the PS1 demo disk game and absolutely loved it. Very unique and interesting well done. Keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to the full game!


Also this game is beautiful. Who knew a PS1 style game style game could look so amazing!

Thanks so much!! Loved the video, if you haven't yet I recommend trying out the other demo available on this itch page, different look and intro :)

Thank you for watching it! I'll definitely have to check that out that sounds interesting.

What is a historic fall ?


The one I had down the stairs this morning haha :) 

(Yea that didn't make much sense, edited it out)

Hehe... ouchouchouchouch... I'm alive !....ouch.

A friend pointed out today it may be a translation thing because it could mean Autumn, which makes sense I guess.


This was a amazing experience that I greatly wish to see more of. The atmosphere was hypnotizing and beautiful, yet haunting. Please bring more!

Thank you!! <3 Def planning on more fun stuff :) If you enjoyed the experience you might like some past releases like 0N0W, has some scary worlds in there.


This is one of the most strangely beautiful and confusing experiences I've had with a game in a long time. I honestly wish I could afford to donate because I absolutely love everything about the style of the game.

Thank you!! Your comment alone is worth any donation :) so I really appreciate you taking a moment to share this!


This is BY FAR the most immersive game environment I've encountered. My jaw was on the floor the whole time, I LOVE IT. I found myself taking TONS of screenshots of the beautiful environment around me. Can't wait for the whole game, thank you for this!!

Thank you so much :) Glad yo hear you loved it!!


Great job :)

Thank you! :)


Thanks for this insane trip!

All the best with future development!


Thank you very much!! & thanks for the video, was fun to watch haha :)

What a beautiful and haunting game ! I loved every moment ! The colors, the retro film grain, the whole bit! I'll even admit that the ending made me jump ! Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece !

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the experience and the atmosphere :)


Nice style and music. Wasn't expecting the ending lol

Thanks for playing and the video!! :)


Buen juego aunque me he perdido bastante 

Muchisimas gracias por jugar!!


Awesome game! Love the music and the Aesthetic! Got kinda confused with the maze at the end, but other than that, amazing. I hope to see more!

Thank you very much!! And thank you for the video I really appreciate it :)


This Game Is Unsettling! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdohCbNMaHw

Haha thank you! :)


A beautiful and relaxing game. Love the atmosphere.

Thanks for playing :)


Seeing that Rutger Hauer passed away made me want to watch Blade Runner especially when it rains and now playing this I really want to watch it since the music in this was so amazing just like in Blade Runner by Vangelis.

Thank you! Yes that intro in the apt was definitely inspired by the mood of Deckard's apt and the whole film :) I'd recommend listening to Hello Meteor, the composer behind those amazing tunes for the intro, their work is fantastic!


I watched Markiplier playing it and came to say I love your game :)

Keep it up.

Thank you!! will do :)

Really nice game, loved the colors and I found it rather calm and atmospheric than scary, but it isn't a bad thing.

Thanks for playing!! Glad you enjoyed it :)


Great Game! I loved the somber music and then how it throws you straight in with no restraint. Great Job!

Thanks for playing and the video!! :)


Like most of colorfiction's games it's a real pleasure to experience. The audio and visuals melt together dreamily and you can often find yourself standing there just taking it all in. This one has the beginnings of a more defined story with some horror elements, although it's still very vague. Either way, it's very compelling to just hang out in this world for a while. Looking forward to what comes next!

Thank you very much!! I really appreciate the comments, yes its still very early in development so let's see where the adventure takes us :) Thanks again for playing!


That was weirdly...good! I liked it a lot, even without understanding this plot. I think it's more about atmosphere and developer(s) made really good job with visuals and sounds


Thanks for playing and the video!! Glad you enjoyed the experience :)

Nice little game

thanks! :)


At the time of playing I didn't realize this was an alpha demo as such I was unfairly harsh on this game. My apologies  to colorfiction for not understanding.


Oh no worries, thanks for playing!! :)

Very interesting game! Love the aesthetic! Love the music! Can't wait to see more! 


Thanks! I really appreciate this :) Its going to get even crazier haha!


Oh! Color me excited! Can't wait! 

It’s style and music is excellent. What’s more, the ending really stays with you. https://youtu.be/ElIV3hTxT7o

Thank you so much :)
