Springtime Brings A Unique Journey
Thatgamecompany has already wowed us a couple times, so you can bet our expectations are high.
And although we won't get it this year, we're still anxious to try the studio's latest innovative title, Journey. Thatgamecompany has announced that it will launch exclusively on the PlayStation Store in the spring; there's no concrete date but we can live with that...for now.
The Flower developers are in the process of creating a unique quest that deals with the vulnerability of humanity and the thrill of adventure in an unknown world. It also implements online multiplayer functionality in a way we've never really seen before, which is the only aspect of the game that may or may not cause problems. Said creative director Jenova Chen at the PlayStation Blog:
"While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can't wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC's take on an online adventure game. Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it's what you think that matters."
For more on Journey, check out our preview. We're definitely excited to see how it turns out, and we hope Chen and Co. are rewarded for their efforts. We need continual injections of freshness and innovation in this industry, you know.
