    An excellent game that brings you into it.

    When you think of this game as an interactive, cinematic game, you can look past many of the shortcoming of this 3 ½ hour game. It teeters on wanting to focus only on a story while trying to maintain an interactive experience. The eerie feeling that the game creates is masterful, and its ability to make you feel like you’re experiencing the world is better than most triple-A experiences. With a possible DLC in the works to explain the abrupt ending, maybe the developers can master the balance.

    A short but immersive sci-fi story sets the background of this gorgeous-looking yet flawed adventure, that could have been an unforgettable journey.

    It’s entirely possible that the promised free DLC will provide satisfying closure to the story, but at the moment, Fortuna is just half a game. It’s a great half to be sure, but until that DLC appears and sticks the landing, I can’t recommend it without caveat.

    Deliver us the Moon: Fortuna provides a believable setting and various modes of movement in normal, low, and no gravity that work believably and easily, and puzzles/solutions that aren't overly complex. There are also vehicles that get to drive on the surface of the moon. The story, if not edge-of-the-seat engaging was interesting if not compelling, but the lack of a final chapter is deeply disappointing.

    The shining piece of Deliver Us The Moon: Fortuna is its story and immersive environment. You'll feel like you’re in space, and if you’re looking for a great narrative to go with that, this is definitely the title for you.

    It the middle of the story the credits start rolling. It happens so suddenly that you just sit there, thinking that it’s a joke or some weird puzzle. But no, that is really it. Developers swear they’ll release a proper conclusion “soon”, but even if that happens – it’s still a shady move, especially since it’s neither an Early Access title, nor Episode 1. [Issue#234, p.60]

    The narrative premises on which it is based are not very original, but could nevertheless have represented a solid base on which to build a fully engaging experience.

    It’s hard to recommend in its current state, with very poor optimisation, but definitely one to keep an eye on in the future.

    Deliver Us The Moon: Fortuna fully delivers on what it promised, offering a very interesting take on the narrative-driven experience, an interesting sci-fi story, a great atmosphere, enjoyable puzzles and gameplay mechanics, and some interesting story twists. The experience, however, is irremediably ruined by the abrupt cliffhanger ending, which makes the game feel incomplete. While free DLC with the ending is coming, it's hard to recommend the game at full price in its current state.

    Deliver Us The Moon: Fortuna is an ambitious story-driven game from a small studio that tries to do more than most other games in the genre. It’s sad that this ambition is stifled by a lack of polish, poor writing, and a non-existent ending. Most, if not all, of these problems can, and possibly will, be fixed but as it stands, the game is hard to recommend. KeokeN may have shot for the stars but they did not deliver the moon.

    The journey to the moon would be a mediocre experience - if it were complete.

    If you can get past all the timed events and repetition from multiple deaths, Deliver Us the Moon: Fortuna will reward you with an evolving story and interesting characters. But you will need to wait for the free DLC to see how things finally get resolved.
  2. Which brings us back to that age-old discussion about endings. If you have a great time reading a book, but the last page abruptly fails to conclude any of the elements you cared about, does all that previous pleasurable time spent reading still have validity? I’d argue that yes, it does.

Then I getFor 20$ I expected a little more than 2 hours of game-play. What I saw was immersive and fun, and the story was just getting good. Then I get kicked in the balls and credits. No where does it say on the store page that it is episodic, or relying on (free or otherwise) DLC to complete the full game. If this was listed as episodic I would have waited for all the parts to come out.

    It's a real shame though, many of the games aspects really shine through, like the spectacular music. The voice acting is a bit hit or miss most of it being really good, some of it being way too cringy, but I suspect they forgot to remove some placeholders.

    As it stands right now, it's not worth a buy, and honestly for the lack of information given on the Steam page, I'd request a refund. But the game took exactly long enough to complete to put you out of eligibility for a refund

    Poor Value for Money: This could've been a great game, but $19 for 3 hours of play of a game without an ending makes it not worth your time.Poor Value for Money: This could've been a great game, but $19 for 3 hours of play of a game without an ending makes it not worth your time. It's good, the story has depth it's fun to play, but here we're talking about value for money. Bang for your buck, and it's just not there. They've gone for an episodic game, and give you ♥♥♥♥ all game play for your money. They could've made a fantastic game if they'd finished it, but they got greedy and decided to hold back the ending.

    So if you're looking at this, and feel excited to play it, well yes it's good, but it leaves you with a sick empty feeling after all you go through and it's just cut off at the end. The story just cuts off. Don't recommend it soley because of that reason. Story is great, gameplay is great, no hand holding, but when you buy it, you are not told it's episodic.
