Few games are as screenshot friendly as Journey – practically every frame highlights the expert artistic design, colour composition and camera direction which went into making it such a beautiful-looking title. However, Journey’s appeal extends far beyond looks alone. Thatgamecompany has crafted a quite extraordinary experience which speaks to both the senses and the soul. Simply put, Journey is one of the most memorable gaming experiences money can buy.
Game director Jenova Chen recently took to the PlayStation Blog to announce that Journey has broken PlayStation Store sales records to become the fastest-selling PSN game in history. The previous record holder was last year’s Halloween-themed inFamous: Festival of Blood. This is no mean feat considering that there’s no demo or trial for Journey and that this admittedly brief adventure will set you back $14.99.
Jenova Chen also used the opportunity to reveal that Journey’s soundtrack will be available on the PlayStation Store and iTunes from April 10th. A limited CD release will also take place during the next few weeks.
Congratulations to thatgamecompany on this fantastic achievement and we hope you continue to break down the walls which have traditionally restricted game designers.
