On Thursday, December 9th, thatgamecompany’s upcoming new PSN title, Journey, was demonstrated at Sony’s annual December showcase in New York. Journey’s designer Jenova Chan was also on hand at the event and shared new information about the game, including it’s unique multiplayer aspect.
“We can work together or I can ignore him,” Chan said. The multiplayer experience in Journey is automatic and designed to be free of the sort of annoyances that keep much of the mainstream gaming public from playing online, he explained.
“There are no lobbies, and no competition,” he said. “And I don’t have to play with anyone else if I don’t want to. But if I do, then solving puzzles can go much faster—especially if the other player is a veteran. I can share his resources to do things I otherwise wouldn’t be able to do yet.”
Other tidbits about Journey were also revealed. For instance, collecting loose pieces of cloth in the game will increase the length or your character’s cape and walking past certain objects in the sand will cause them to light up. Journey is set to a release sometime next year and like theatgamecompany’s previous works it’s sure to be a game like no other.

So far all we have know about Journey is that it’s a game developed by the talented people of thatgamecompany. They are the same people that brought us “flOw” and “Flower”. Even from this trailer we really can’t tell much about the game except that it has someone traveling across many locations in search of something.
From the infamous “thatgamecomany” known best for the creation of flOw and Flower, comes “Journey”. The game looks amazing and I am a big fan. Can’t wait to pick this up.
An exotic adventure with a more serious tone, Journey presents TGC’s unique vision of an online adventure experience. Awakening in an unknown world, the player walks, glides, and flies through a vast and awe-inspiring landscape, while discovering the history of an ancient, mysterious civilization along the way.
Flower won the Best Independent Game at the Spike Video Game Awards 2009. It’s well deserved too. If you still haven’t played Flower, your missing out. I’d call it more of an experience than a game. But regardless it’s a must play. Here are my impressions on Flower. I wonder what thatgamecompany will come up with next!
