There are a few games I am willing to wait patiently for. However, I’m definitely glad that an upcoming game called Journey has a release date. ThatGameCompany has made something truly unique that will give you anonymous interactions with other players across the world without any kind of verbal or written communication. Here is a snippet that will give you an idea of the world you will want to know.
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.
Needless to say, this is going to be an awesome game. It’s always nice to see some innovative games that don’t require shooting every moving thing you see. This will be a rather time consuming game what with all of the traveling, but I think the visuals and music will make time fly by.
The game will be available on the PlayStation Store on March 13th of this year. It will only cost about $14.99, though I would definitely be willing to pay more for this if it is as good as it looks from the gameplay footage and screenshots I’ve seen. This is going to be the game that will kick off the Spring Fever event on the PlatStation Blog, so keep your eyes peeled for sales.
