Welcome fellow wanderers, and welcome to the Graveyard Shift! Where you all get a second or maybe third attempt at reaching the mountain top, but let do it together! So lets get going..
Tonight's Shift... THE BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY!
Yes, a very beautiful Journey (March, 2012) through the ruins of a distant past, and long forgotten memories. A Journey in which you might end up loosing yourselves, and find fate.
Never played Journey? Then just imagine a white canvas stretching in all directions as the eye can see, but there is a moving black dot, and it you. In the distance you will see towering above all, the the light beckoning you on this Journey. But are you alone in it?
SDesigns from the art book.
Really have to give a lot of credit to the wonderful team at thatgamecompnay (awesome name, interesting logo) for the mysterious backdrop they put players in.
Being void of any gender, race, and any identifiable cues, the player is left to assume the persona of the character. In essence (and this a beautiful part) all you have left is a shell, and you are the humanity the fills it. But are you alone?
You are never truly alone.
In this vast desert, and ruins, there are perils to be wary off, but more importantly you will find others like yourself. Nothing different or suspicious (.....) about them. They are just like you. Never do you question what's beneath the scarf do you now? All you have to go along is the vocals each make along the way.
There is no need to have a companion, but nevertheless you wait for your red scrafy friend to catch up. Helps with activating the panels, chirps back at you, and hurdles up to keep both warm. Whom ever it is, it makes it hard to keep going alone.
This Journey can be done alone, and nothing will be taken away from it. But you will not be alone, in this beautiful Journey.
Feel free to TALK AMONG YOURSELVES, and about whatever you want, and share about your journey be it game or life.
