The developer behind Flower and flOw has another, more traditional game in the works. Journey is mostly a game of exploration and sets players in a massive desert to discover the secrets of an ancient civilization. The game was shown off at E3 this year and received very little press, but I feel games devoid of violence deserve some discussion.
This is another Playstation exclusive from Thatgamecompany and will rely on the use of gyroscope in the Sisaxis controller, as that is how you control the camera. Players are left to their own devices with no instruction on where to go or even who you are. Journey is completely open-world and allows for exploration though it provides many clues to lead you toward an overall goal.
The game also features an online component that allows you to come across others such as your character travelling across the same desert and they are also able to assist you on your journey.
From what I have seen of Journey it is much like an emotional and deep experience more akin to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus only with less enemy encounters (possibly none). Check out the video below for more.
