Games are art. Probably one of the greatest arguments you can make to validate this point is to suggest someone play through a short but breathtaking indie game, Journey. The game was originally released for PlayStation 3 console as an exclusive, back in 2012, and it quickly became one of the ‘must-play’ titles on the platform. Now, 7 years later, the game is finally coming to PC. It’s set to launch on Epic Games Store on June 6th.
Journey was developed by Thatgamecompany which is also known for their other beautiful games such as Flower and Flow, both originally created for PlayStation 3. The studio’s games were so successful that they were re-released on PlayStation 4 as a part of the collection for PlayStation essentials. The indie studio earned their name by making stylized games that would provoke emotional responses from their players.
If you’ve never played or heard about Journey, essentially it is a 2-hour-long game with stunning visuals and an even better soundtrack. In fact, upon release, Journey was considered a serious Game of the Year contender for various game awards, claiming many titles in the process. The game’s soundtrack was also nominated for Grammy awards, it was the second game making its way into the show’s nominees list throughout the entire history.
So, if you’re looking for a game to spend your evening on, Journey is a great pick – if you don’t mind short games. You’ll be able to purchase Journey on PC via Epic Games Store.
