A new trailer is out now for Impostor Factory, the upcoming third game in the To the Moon series.

Since I loved both To the Moon and Finding Paradise, as well as the smaller games set in between, I’m looking forward to it quite a bit… especially to see the next step in the overarching story.

Impostor Factory was announced last year as “a time-resetting thriller-mystery that involves a series of bloody murders.”

If that description seems a little unusual for the next game in this series, like I mentioned at the time, then just wait until you see the new trailer.

What in the world just happened?

According to its official Steam page, the central character this time is a man named Quincy who goes to a mansion and finds a time machine, and then “things get a little Lovecraftian” (as we can see in the trailer). The description goes on to say “that’s around 1/3 of what the game is really about.”

The Steam page is coy about where exactly this falls in the timeline, saying it could be a sequel or maybe a prequel or maybe both, but that it can be played without knowledge of the others.

My current theory is that since Quincy is probably Neil and Eva’s new patient, his request will be to use a time machine. On the other hand, it could tie into the overarching story in some way.

What do you think is going on in this Impostor Factory trailer? We’ll find out before the end of the year, since it’s due out in late 2020!
