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!!

Ode to a Moon
A PSYCHOTRONIC ADVENTURE
FOLLOWING THE MYSTERIOUS AFTERMATH
OF A GRIM HARVEST FESTIVAL
GONE HORRIBLY WRONG!
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 historic 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.

Great job :)
Thanks for this insane trip!
All the best with future development!
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 !
Nice style and music. Wasn't expecting the ending lol
Buen juego aunque me he perdido bastante
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!
A beautiful and relaxing game. Love the atmosphere.
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.
Really nice game, loved the colors and I found it rather calm and atmospheric than scary, but it isn't a bad thing.
Great Game! I loved the somber music and then how it throws you straight in with no restraint. Great Job!
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
Nice little game
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.
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!
It's psychedelic trip?
What a "dark" game.
Really cool looking game and super music. Plays well with no problems. Good job... :)
I'm not sure what happened, but I really enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing how the game continues in the future!
Muy buena ambientación, lo unico que me perdí mucho en la parte del bosque que no hay mucha referencia para ubicarte. Pero el juego en sí muy bueno.
Al aire libreAl aire libre
This is a very cool, and very strange game. I love cosmic horror and this one was pretty good. No sure what happened, but I enjoyed it. Thanks for making this demo!
Thank you! Yes it's just a short demo at the moment but glad you enjoyed it!
Well done, developer!
I honestly don't remember the 80's being as weird as everyone makes out lol. but hey cool wee game you have here
Haha yup the nostalgia glasses are a big thing now, thanks for playing and glad you enjoyed it!
Game was very cool!
This is nothing I haven't seen before, with the psychedelic nature of the game and the strange warping environment, but what really sets Ode to a Moon apart is how beautiful it is. This experience perfectly encapsulates how something strange and unsettling can also be awe-inspiring and beautiful. This isn't a game, this is a work of art.
Loved it. Looking forward to seeing similar pieces of work.
VERY INTERESTING GAME.
beautiful game. Love all of your work. I was wondering what the real events were that inspired this game?
Played this for a 4 free indie horrors, and was VERY interested in the universe of the game. It has a very colorful scheme to it, which (While a little hard on the eyes at times) Was really cool looking and added a nice level of mystery to the game as a whole. If you're looking for feedback, I give plenty of that at the end of my video in the "Review Portion"
Put your game into another Indie Romp, almost didn't realize you made the "Be Calm" game too! You've Got a way with colors my dude!! Hope you enjoy the videoYour game starts at the 14:11 mark
i played this in dx 10.1 and it looks like a lsd tab.
Thank you! Haha yes went a completely different direction from Becalm with Ode :)
hello! i just wanted to say i really enjoyed playing this game and i can't wait to see this game when its finished! great job! also i made a video so i hope you enjoy it.
WHOA ! Amazing.
amazing game, it was quite the trip keep up the good work! i made a play through if anyone wants to check it out (spanish play-through)
Thank you! Yes at the moment it's an early alpha, the plan is to make it a longer experience :)
Best cosmic horror of any medium I've experienced for years.
