You might be rightfully wondering if Activision or MTV Games is producing a music game based on the band Journey. While that dream continues live on, but in the meantime, we have our first look at thatgamecompany's follow-up to Flower, a desert-bound game called Journey. G4tv.com sent Andrew Pfister to watch thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen explain his latest:
"When tasked with describing his new game, Chen was expectedly cryptic and philosophical. If you've followed TGC's game design progression with flow and Flower, Journey looks like the next evolutionary step that combines some of the principles of fluid motion, subdued presentation, and non-verbal storytelling. It also is the most "regular" game that they've done, with Chen calling it an "adventure game" with areas to explore and an allusion to items that will need to be collected. Journey looks like a stripped-down Shadow of the Colossus combined with a stripped-down Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, employing some gorgeous flat-shaded graphics and wide expanses of land."
Journey is one we'll be keeping a close eye on in the future. Check our full preview of Journey.
