Anything thatgamecompany does is worthy of our attention. After flOw and Flower , they have become an elite developer for the PSN.
We don't have a release date just yet and there are some gameplay questions that need clearing up, but it's always nice to have the first official trailer for Journey . You can see it below and if you haven't already read our preview , we suggest doing so for the sake of info. As you might expect, the game is very unconventional and quite original; it has been described as "an exotic adventure with a more serious tone," and you will explore an ancient ruined civilization. During the course of your adventure, you will meet other travelers (real people online), but there is no voice chat; you must communicate another way. It's extremely interesting.
We can't wait to try it. We're still not 100% on the mechanics or actual purpose of the game (what happens when we reach the goal…?), but we do notice something besides sand and desert in this trailer. There's darkness, a bizarre creature, and driving snow, which means we'll get a bit more variety than we had expected. But leave it to thatgamecompany to make something totally mysterious…
