Journey: First actual gameplay footage
Flower developer unleashes the first real look at its next artsy effort
ou either like the work of ThatGameCompany or you don't. We thought Flower was awesome. You may not have. Not enough headshots for some of you, we assume.But if you agree with us, you'll surely agree that the developers next game, Journey, is looking amazing too. Below is the first proper footage of actual gameplay (courtesy of IGN), showing the game's cloaked characters gliding through the rippling sandy desert.
In case you're unfamiliar, Flower is a PSN downloadable title that is more of a visceral 'experience' than a 'game' in the traditional sense. There's no death or failure. There's essentially no challenge. Your only objective is to sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing sounds and vivid colours of a gorgeous world as you swoop around collecting flower petals and returning life to a desolate landscape.
Just like Flower, Journey looks as relaxing as it is intriguing. We'll have a comfortable bean bag and a hot cup of Horlicks ready for this.
