A thriller by Colorfiction



Demo available now on



Ode to a Moon is a first person cosmic horror game currently in development. As a photo-journalist for a popular tabloid, you’re tasked with covering a historic fall feast in a far away sleepy town during a centennial lunar eclipse. Camera in hand you set off to this 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.

You’ll be exploring nostalgic New England to unravel the story; journeying through primeval misty forests, the Appalachians, overgrown farmlands and graveyards, the extravagant ruined castles and factories of long forgotten industrialists, dilapidated suburbia and its neglected malls and so much more!

During this investigative adventure the player will have to solve environmental puzzles and overcome any dangers along the way. While not having an emphasis on combat due to its narrative focus, players will however on occasion have the option to defend themselves. Nevertheless violence will never be the best solution to a problem.
