Deliver Us The Moon is a sci-fi thriller developed by independent studio KeoKeN Interactive. Partially funded through Kickstarter, the game was originally set to launch in 2016, but Deliver Us The Moon has finally been released on Steam today.

Some of the backers have been able to play parts of the game from 2018 but for the rest of us, the wait to finally see the final version of Deliver Us The Moon has been a bit longer. As in life, there is no point in running, and KeoKeN Interactive has done well taking its time with the development because the game they give us today is a true gem. We’ve been able to test it, and we’ll talk about it right away.

Not all heroes wear cloaks.

Deliver Us The Moon, that’s exactly what you’ll have to do. It all begins in the not-so-distant future of 2030. The Earth is undergoing an unprecedented energy crisis, and climate change is leaving humanity with a dark future if it still has one. In this context, the WSA (World Space Agency), which has been created to overcome the crisis, decided to colonize the moon to extract a resource, helium 3, to save humanity. Thanks to a microwave energy transmission system, or MPT, this energy is sent to the Earth. But in 2054, a general cut-off occurs, leaving humanity without resources. While all communication is broken with the lunar team, a group of alumni of the WSA managed the feat of setting up a mission, and they manage to build a rocket with very limited resources to go there and discover what that could have happened. You are in charge of this mission, of course.

It is in this context that Deliver Us The Moon begins. The most interesting thing about the setting is that although this is a science-fiction game, this scenario is more than believable. Indeed, climate change is now at work, and helium 3 is also something very real. We can actually find large quantities of it on the Moon, so much that today some experts are very serious about the exploitation of this resource. This context greatly contributes to the immersion of the player.

Immersion is the great strength of Deliver Us The Moon. Sent alone to investigate, the feeling of loneliness that emerges is quite powerful. The game manages to entice you, not only with its environment, which recreates an abandoned and dark space base, but also with his music that accurately accentuates the action.

Keep your cool!

In terms of gameplay, Deliver Us The Moon offers a simple but effective formula. Being a game of exploration above all, you will have to progress through diverse lunar structures in order to reconstruct the sequence of events. But as you move into abandoned places, you will have to solve some puzzles. For example, you may need to find a source of energy to turn on the power and enter a certain area. You will also have some tools at your disposal, like the flashlight, which is very useful in an abandoned station, or a laser, which allows you to overcome a variety of obstacles. You will also be accompanied by an ASE, a type of robot with artificial intelligence, which you can control to achieve certain goals. The game alternates between first and third-person views, and you can even experience the lack of gravity.

Deliver Us The Moon is also a game that will sometimes put a strain on your nerves. Indeed, the game has some stages where you will trigger a timer and it will make you react very quickly; if you lack oxygen, for example. These contextual actions will raise your stress level, and create a sense of urgency which is reminiscent of Gravity in some respects. The more you progress, the more clues you will gather, including vocal recordings and holograms, allowing you to gradually reconstruct the mystery. You can even make some trips on the lunar soil, either driving a rover or on foot.

In terms of lifetime, Deliver Us The Moon offers you between 5 to 7 hours of play. If like me, you are the type to explore every corner and you take your time, you can count a little more. It took me about 9 hours to finish the game.

Finally, on the performance side, the recommended configuration of Deliver Us The Moon asks for an i7, a GTX 1060 and 8GB of RAM, which corresponds to the configuration used for this test. The game runs very well, I could go from start to end in epic quality, with only a few brief slowdowns, that I can count on the fingers of one hand.

In conclusion, if you like immersive, narrative games and solving mysteries, Deliver Us The Moon will only delight you, so go for it. You will be, from one end to the other, focused on your mission to save the Earth, just that. The more the story advances, the more you want to know what’s coming next, and in the meantime, your imagination is free to construct theories.

For console players, know that Deliver Us The Moon should arrive on PS4 and Xbox One in 2020.
