    Great! Totally makes me want to play this game, but I don't want or have room for a PS3. I could possibly be persuaded to get a Vita if this were to come out for it. Maybe.

    Sounds good to me - all the benefits of a CPU player with none of the annoyances of a human.

    Matt Cundy - I have a question. Why did you choose to use the word "empowering" to describe what you felt when playing Journey? I'm just curious about what sort of interaction made you feel empowered.
  • LEGOMatrix - February 23, 2012 5:48 p.m.

    If I may give an answer in Cundy's stead: word of the day toilet paper. AmirightCUNDY!!!?

    So many games tell the player what to do and how to do it, but really one of the best experiences a player can have is discovering those things for themselves without the need for endless tutorials or big floaty arrows pointing the way. Making progress without the condescending in-game guidance from a developer is hugely empowering as a player. Admittedly in Journey's case it's successfully achieved through very thoughtful game design, but when you're playing you get a huge sense of achievement from feeling that you're working it out for yourself. @LEGOMatrix - the word on the 'word of the day' toilet paper was actually 'Tegestologist' (which is the word used to describe someone that collects beer mats/coasters).

    Both verbally empowering and deliciously soft on the anus!

    Wasn't a fan of TGC previous efforts (sorry) but this is looking very intruiging indeed. Might actually be worth turning the old PS3 on for! Quick question though: is 2 players the max you can hsve at once?

    Beautiful article Mr. Cundy.

    I've been extremely excited to see if TCG's attempts at forcing a non-griefable co-op experience would work out, so it makes me profoundly happy to read an article like this. Especially when it was written by you, Mr. Cundy ;)

    Ok Ok i want the real Cundy back please with Stella in hand no more of this girly talk :)

    Don't worry - no one thinks you're gay. (Yet).

    Been keeping an eye out for this game for a while and now I really want it. I love cooperative single player experiences and especially when they're seamlessly integrated into the game (part of why Dark/Demon's Souls are my favorite). Sounds amazing.

    Well, provided it doesn't cost, like, £20, I'll definitely try and pick it up at some point- I mean, DLC Quest only took me one sitting, and that didn't stop it being abslutely amazing

    I'm not an art collector, but for some reason I like collecting games made by ThatGameCompany as if I were collecting moving portraits. I like having it there and when I want to, play through it or show it to my friends when they are over. I can't wait to pick this one up.
  • Desired_Effect - February 23, 2012 9:22 a.m.

    This will be a definite buy. I was a massive fan of flower and this looks like it shall be even better. Had no idea it was multiplayer though.. Is that online multiplayer only? or can I play with co op?
  • larkan - February 23, 2012 9:12 a.m.

    I'm sorry, but $15 or even $10 for a two hour game just isn't justifiable today. The same argument was made when Limbo came out at $15 and was easily beaten in under 3 hours "oohhh the abstract black and white art style makes this game worth it". No, no it doesn't, not at all. I know I'm not alone in thinking I want several hours of gameplay out of my money these days. The last game I spent $15 on was Dungeon Defenders, and I've easily gotten more than 100 hours out of it. So when my friends and I purchase that game, and I see another friend who opted out to give a game like this a try, it's ridiculous to see that I'm getting 50x the gameplay value out of a game at the same price. Say what you will about how awesome it is for a co op game to be this involved, but really it's not worth the money.
  • Moondoggie1157 - February 23, 2012 9:33 a.m.

    Not worth it to you, no. But to many other people, the experience is worth it. Ah, the power of personal opinions. I can't wait to try Journey out.
  • veryweirdguy - February 23, 2012 10:49 a.m.

    I'd rather have two hours from ThatGameCompany than twenty from most other developers. Quality trumps quantity. Always. If it was a £40 retail disc release, maybe I'd see your point, but it's not. PS Have you ever paid more than £5 to go to the cinema? Or for a DVD? Or for a concert? Or anything else that is about 2 hours worth of content?

    Im not about to buy a ps3 now, so seems this great game will be lost on me. A modern day Okami
  • db1331 - February 23, 2012 9 a.m.

    That's interesting. I thought this was only single player. I guess Cundy lucked out with his companion because only press are playing it right now? The rest of us will probably meet some journeyman named "xXxHairyNutZ69xXx" who tries to kill and then teabag us.
