Hint: by clicking on the "0 of 6" sign on the bottom you can see all available endings.

I Wish I Were the Moon

An artgame about a love triangle inspired by Italo Calvino.

I shipped the first version of this game in 2008 and it helped put my work on the eyes of a lot of people and allowed me to have a career in game development.

Since that time, artgames have grown in size, ambition and willingness to explore all sorts of subjects, but this game was part of the initial movement that helped put artgames in the minds of press, players and other developers.

So I decided to honor it by making a version that works on current tech and adjusted to my current design sensibilities.

Good game. I love the visuals and gameplay. Here is the gameplay with all endings + secret.



It's wild to see this game again after so many years, but at least now I can say that I finally got all the endings!

I am one of the people who purchased this game back in the day. I am an EFL teacher and I have even used it in the classroom. Also, I know that the current drag and drop mechanic looks cleaner but I somewhat miss the Polaroid framework when dragging and dropping. Here's for a Today I die release next. 

<3 yes, I had to leave some of the charm for the historic version


Loved it! 💓

got all the endings plus the secret one! amazing game and very clever!

Incredible game

Cute! I enjoyed it!

The button in the bottom left reads "of 6" for me though - not "of 7". Clicking it also only displays six endings, "Burning" isn't listed. Once you trigger it, it will appear in the list, but the maximum doesn't change. So completing all endings reads "7 of 6".

good catch!
