I will not pretend to understand what is going on in this trailer for Journey, the upcoming game from thatgamecompany who were responsible for flOw and Flower. But it certainly looks interesting.
Due on PSN this year, Journey delivers simple gameplay and accessible controls in a rich interactive environment that invites players to explore and experience emotional chords that are still uncommon in video games. Features include:
- Unique Gameplay Experience – Players can explore without standard game conventions of “violence.” Unlike most games, Journey also features the concept of “de-empowering” the player to make feel helpless and tiny in vast world, experience awe and wonder
- Fresh Online Adventure – Players explore a mysterious world, discovering its hidden history. People are free to travel alone, or adventure with strangers that they meet along the way. Innovative online cooperative play implementation with random players, “shared experience” of exploration and discovery
- Intuitive Controls And Experience –Players with differing skill levels and/or moods can experience the game at their own pace.
- Lush And Expansive Environments – Grand landscapes filled with dynamic sand and cloth. Fully simulated sand dunes ripple and slide as players move across them. Gorgeous graphics make players feel in awe of their surrounding environment.
