Journey / by James Huggins

There was a time when I used to play a lot of video games... I mean, a lot. How things have changed. These days I play very little and dabble only with those that really catch my interest, something which few games tend to do. Journey, another tip-off from the ever vigilant Chris O'Shea, is just the kind of game that makes me wish I had more time on my hands. Starting the game lost in a barren desert landscape the only landmark is mountain in the distance, your objective as it turns out. But the emphasis here is on discovery and the atmosphere created is both uniquely enchanting and utterly engaging. Check out this interview with the creators, That Game Company.
