Journey is Finished
ThatGameCompany has revealed that its three-years-in-the-making follow up to indie hit Flower is finally ready to go.
Almost three years to the day after Flower blew away critics and players alike with its strikingly minimalistic and unique gameplay, indie studio ThatGameCompany is ready to release its next game, Journey, on PSN. This news comes after a previously announced delay made in September of last year.
Journey, for those of you who don't know, follows the story of a desert traveler on, well, some type of journey across the sands. Along the way, players are joined by another wanderer (a PSN-plucked stranger), but are unable to communicate with him or her aside from actions and sounds. The game is now complete, but there's still no word on an official release date from Sony.
"Sony's working on [a date]," tweeted Jenova Chen, the studio's creative leader, "[but there are] quite a few big releases coming up. Once Sony figures out the right time, they will announce it. I assume pretty soon."
Still, the game is done, something that ThatGameStudio (and its fans) can appreciate.
"Three years is a long time when you finally finish something and look back [and say,] 'What have I done in the past three years?'" mused Chen. "Hope it's worth it."
I do kinda wish it was coming to 360.
It's a shame, because by the time I get a PS3 (if ever) the community will likely have died off.
Looks interesting enough, I'll pick this one up for sure.
Gives me a Team Ico feel, and that's always a good thing.
Looks really cool. Anyone have any idea how much it'll cost? I'll probably have around $10 to spend on it in a few weeks.
I'm curious to know how this companion thing is actually going to turn out, but I'm really interested.
I'm definitely going to pick this up when it comes out.
Awww. I've been without a PS3 for a year and a half, and this is the first time I've missed it. I loved flOw and Flower SOOO much!
I wonder if Yahtzee will review it then...
Still i remember theese guys for flOw, a game which i remember even more fondly than when i first finished Portal, or that final scene in Okami during the final boss.
Just a slight concern over what the overall objective in Journey is, but i could dismiss that by just playing it.
This news had made my day! I've got about 10 games that are on my to-do list but this will jump right to the top.
Just a red robed man, born and raised among the sands, hopped on the SEN, going anywhere...
Hell. Yes. Son.
I could vomit a rainbow, I'm so happy about this :D
VICTOREMOS!!!! I can't wait for this game!
Awesome, now you got time to make a PC port :P
