Freebird Games, the creators of To the Moon and its sequel Finding Paradise, have revealed Impostor Factory a few months ago. Now, they are ready to announce that Impostor Factory is actually To the Moon 3.
To the Moon 3 is still called Impostor Factory, or “Episode X: Impostor Factory.” So the game isn’t officially the third part of a trilogy, and Freebird Games are refusing to reveal how the new game is connected to the series.
What we do know is that “Impostor Factory is a bonkers time-loop tragicomedy murder mystery thriller involving multiple casualties and a suspicious cat.” Most of this official description speaks to me on a deep level. Though, “suspicious cat” is a bit redundant – all cats are suspicious.
The game can be played independently of the previous two games, which is great because I never did get around to playing Finding Paradise. However, it will “likely mark the end of an era for Freebird Games and the To the Moon series.”
The story of To the Moon 3: Impostor Factory follows a new character named Quincy. Quincy is invited to a fancy party in a secluded mansion, where he discovers a time machine in the bathroom. Whenever he washes his hands, he travels through time, which is… convenient?
Just like in every good party I’ve ever been to, people start dying and tentacles get involved. I’m guessing Quincy’s hand will get very pruney from all the time-traveling he’ll be doing to try and solve-slash-prevent those murders.
But according to the devs, this is only about a third of what the game is really about. We’ll have to wait for the full game to learn more.
To the Moon 3: Impostor Factory will be released in late 2020 for PC. It will be available through Steam, GOG and Humble Store.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
