Sony went with 3D and Move for their E3 press conference, so smaller games had to take the sideline. One of those smaller games was Journey, which is the new game from thatgamecompany. TGC is the developer behind Flow and Flower.
Journey is an online adventure game that takes place in a mysterious land. “Awakening in an unknown world, the player walks, glides, and flies through a vast and awe-inspiring landscape, while discovering the history of an ancient, mysterious civilization along the way.”
TGC wants to encourage players to play with strangers in unique and special ways that they will remember for years to come. Hopefully they pull it off, but I don’t know if I would take that bet.
The art style is certainly beautiful, and it is great to see this developer bite into something a bit meatier after developing the interactive poem that was Flower.
