"That Game Company" has finally announced a release date for their upcoming visually stunning game Journey. A very unique downloadable game coming to the Playstation Network.
It's a game who's concept still eludes me. What I know about it is; you'll wander around a sandy dune like world as a robed character trying to get to a mountain in the distance. There is no form of communication but you will encounter other players on their own journey. I believe you can then chose to hinder or help their progress through the world, but I could be completely wrong about that.
Visually it's one of the most attractive looking games. Specifically for it's vector style graphics and smooth animations. A beautiful piece of art in my opinion, this is definitely something I'm going to buy right away.
If you are unfamiliar with the work of "That Game Company" and own a PS3 go ahead and download the "Flower" demo on the PSN. One of the first games that will come up in an discussion about gaming as Art.
