|Journey looks absolutely stunning|
Jenova Chen, co-founder and creative director at thatgamecompany, took to the Playstation Blog this week and announced a release date for thatgamecompany's long awaited Journey. It will be available for download on the US Playstation Store on March 13. and will set you back the standard $15.
In the past, thatgamecompany's games have been very unique and Jenova has often described them as emotional journeys. On the Playstation Blog he says:
Journey, our third game, is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person’s life passage and their intersections with other’s.
They have made themselves a loyal bunch of fans for their previous works and many such as myself are ready to fork up the cash, no questions asked, but if you want to know more before you buy here is a deeper description of what the game is about:
You wake alone and surrounded by miles of burning, sprawling desert, and soon discover the looming mountaintop which is your goal. Faced with rolling sand dunes, age-old ruins, caves and howling winds, your passage will not be an easy one. The goal is to get to the mountaintop, but the experience along the way is discovering who you are, what this place is, and what your purpose is. Travel and explore this ancient, mysterious world alone, or with a stranger you meet along the way. Soar above ruins and glide across sands as you discover the secrets of a forgotten civilization. Featuring stunning visuals, haunting music, and unique online gameplay, Journey delivers an experience like no other.
We are excited for Journey and so should you. Look for our review around March 13 if you're on the fence or prepare to be mesmerized when we can finally get our hands on that digital goodness.
