Indie darlings Journey and The Unfinished Swan, triumphant from a lengthy tour on the PlayStation 3, will be making the jump to the next generation with ports to the PlayStation 4.
Thatgamecompany's spectacular adventure title is coming to PlayStation 4 along with a survival horror game that we thought died a long time ago.
Things are looking bright for the studio responsible for flOw, Flower and Journey.
Journey's universal theme of connection resonated at the Game Developers Choice Awards, as the game won in six categories. The title was honored with Game of the Year, Best Audio, Best Game Design, Best Visual Arts, Best Downloadable Game, and the Innovation Award.
The critical success of a game does not guarantee financial stability for a developer, as experienced by the bankrupting of thatgamecompany due to the production of Journey. Although thatgamecompany is intent on sticking to its unique, storytelling vision, company co-founder Jenova Chen told Joystiq that they are exploring free-to-play gaming.
Austin Wintory's Grammy nominated music from Journey is an audio swell of resonance and discovery, and violinist Taylor Davis gives the soundtrack a fitting violin tribute.
Journey was a spectacular and evocative game that captured the intricate emotions and wonder of a mythic journey through a desert filled with the ruins of a once great civilization. In the wake of their BAFTA Award win, the Executive Producer of the game let us know that there is little hope for another Journey.
Although Dishonored took Best Game honors at the 2013 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Video Game Awards, it was the PlayStation 3 title Journey which stole the show after receiving five awards.
Matt Nava, the former art director for thatgamecompany's Flower and Journey has branched off and opened up his own studio.
An interview with Journey developer ThatGameComany's founder, Jenova Chen, was posted on Games Industry International. Let's take a look at what he hadto say about the future of his company.
