thatgamecompany did it again. There are flOw and Flower, two computer programs that can only be "played" on Playstation 3 and Journey joined them on March 13.

This concludes an exclusive relationship for 3 games between the developer and Sony. Although I do not know the details of the contract, I'm not sure thatgamecompany has done his part. None of the three titles I think they may be classified as games, but rather say that experiences pretty much different and refreshing.

Journey puts us in the shoes, I mean the robe, of a traveler that must walk through several deserts stages to reach your destination: a mountain that shines in the horizon.

Journey is a magical walk in which the solitude becomes your comapny, until you find another traveler on the road and the only thing certain is that he is walking the same path as you.

It is certainly reassuring to meet someone in these inhospitable lands and even if the only way to communicate with your new "partner" is with sounds, you know you're not alone and that someone can be with you.

However, like any multiplayer game you can find someone who is making its way to beat their own time and because of this you may lose some of the magnificence that is around you.

Journey conveys something different, unique sensations that in the end leave you with a bittersuite taste, but certainly, with the firm intention to make the journey again, with more questions than answers and thinking about a new route and further exploration in this beautiful world. Is it possible? I do not really know, I'm sure sure that I'll be back sooner than later to find out.

The technical part of Journey is impressive, the graphics are very interesting and can be compared to some so-called AAA games.

Environments convey the loneliness of this interesting journey. The sound, music and effects in general are amazing and fit perfectly every time.

From our perspective, there are two negatives: the journey is much shorter than you will want (just a couple of hours) and the second it's high price (only compared to the lenght of the game, since the quality is top).

Journey is not a game is an experience, a piece of digital art with high production values ​​and a journey worthy of taking.
