Moonshot: A Journey Home casts you as Moon Pi, a young moon trying to find the way home. Travel across the universe with a mix of slingshot gameplay and puzzle solving. Avoid black holes and aliens as you try to find your way back to Mother Earth.
The game was created by Morsel Interactive, husband-and-wife developer duo Milan Cubic and Valentina Bregovic. According to the self-proclaimed "space geeks," the idea for Moonshot originally sparked from imagining a game of mini-golf in space. Eventually the story of a curious moon wandering away from Earth emerged. The team wanted to explore the dependency between the Earth and the moon.
The "best analogy, that we found, was connection between mother and child," Cubic said. "We fell in love with the relatable, heart warming aspect of the mother-child bond." The full moon looking like a giant golf ball helped, he added.
Cubic and Bregovic hope players new to slingshot games will take their time, and embrace the challenge of aiming and calculating the moon's trajectory.
