Your Journey Begins Spring 2012

Jenova Chen's Avatar + Posted by Jenova Chen on Sep 27, 2011 // Creative Director, thatgamecompany

This is Jenova Chen from thatgamecompany. First of all I would like to thank you for your support during the closed beta for our upcoming game Journey. It was a great success!

Journey

For the past few months, we kept getting asked about Journey’s release date. Yes, we haven’t said anything about our release in a while mainly because we really couldn’t tell. And we don’t want to throw out a date that we are not sure about, and later disappoint our players.

Fortunately, the online beta went very well, and our continued playtests have given us great feedback on the work we have left to complete. While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can’t wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC’s take on an online adventure game.

Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it’s what you think that matters. We are happy to announce Journey will be released Spring 2012, so you can experience the adventure for yourself.

I liked Flow, I loved Flower, I will be in love with this game!

thatgamecompany is quickly becoming a favorite developer of mine.

I love their vision, and artistic brilliance!

I can’t not wait for this game!

Cloud for the PC was amazing as well!!!

To add, this company would be perfect for making a game for the Vita. And I am excited to see what they can do with the touch controls and/or AR!

+ nyobzoo on September 27th, 2011 at 6:41 am said:

well at least it’s a beta and not an early multiplayer demo, called a beta, 1 month before the game’s release

+ stlthriot on September 27th, 2011 at 6:43 am said:

Very excited about this! I enjoyed the beta and look forward to the final version! =D

+ ItsNymo on September 27th, 2011 at 6:43 am said:

Thanks for the update, Jenova! I loved taking part in the closed beta, and I definitely cannot wait to finally play the final thing. Rather bummed that it won’t make it for this fall, nor winter, but it’s probably for the best (it won’t be lost under the clutter of games coming by year’s end, and more time to polish up the game!)

Looking forward to it’s springtime release!

I hope this means Vita support is incoming!!!!

+ Timewalker-Ben on September 27th, 2011 at 6:46 am said:

Finally a timeframe, a lil disappointed its so far out but hey its at least something. Any plans for an OPEN Beta? I havent been able to try this game at all yet.
TGC will we ever see Cloud on psn? i’d really love to see that on here.

THIS is my most anticipated game of 2012*, and it should be YOURS too!

*previously ‘Most anticipated game of 2011′.

A game that looks that good and fun will be worth the wait!

*sits impatiently*

+ that-acmilan-guy on September 27th, 2011 at 8:03 am said:

For such a small game its taking forever. Hope I can affordable.

+ Berae on September 27th, 2011 at 8:09 am said:

Damn I thought it would be in 2011. Alright Ill wait lol

+ poweredbyzen on September 27th, 2011 at 8:39 am said:

demo please! :D

+ Ricopitote on September 27th, 2011 at 8:47 am said:

WTF? I was expecting this game to arrive sometime between fall and winter!

+ TheUndertaker85 on September 27th, 2011 at 8:48 am said:

Any details of major changes occurring during the beta? I did say it in a previous post about Journey but…

I really hope you all reconsider a party system for Journey plus a LIMITED voice chat feature. I don’t want to be able to talk to just anybody while playing Journey, just the users I’m directly playing with. Plus party systems allow friends and family to get together and enjoy fantastic experiences easier. Journey looks to be a big experience and one I hope I can take with friends and family, not just limited to my living room.

To any extent, can’t wait to see Journey finally. I was hoping for a bit of an earlier release like in even December but a little more polish to something that promises to be a fantastic title doesn’t hurt.

Not related to Journey here too but… Will PS Move or 3D support ever come to Flower? We know there was little talks of PS Move support before but not sure if anything ever came of that. Flower in 3D would be flat out amazing if the 3D is done right.

+ Dubloon7 on September 27th, 2011 at 8:51 am said:

WTF? ANOTHER delay? Figures. You better improve the graphics, gameplay, and replay values! The sand doesn’t look beautful, it looks like S, it doesn’t flow together and it looks like every step in the sand has someone dropping a HUGE boulder into water. i WAS looking forward to this but not anymore.


33

+ Sephir007 on September 27th, 2011 at 9:02 am said:

@ 31, I agree Flower in 3D would be excellent, you should consider it, maybe like a DLC it could spark more sales of the title..


34

+ spoonTRex on September 27th, 2011 at 9:53 am said:

I will wait, slowly rocking in the corner assuring myself the delay is necessary.


35

+ fathead170 on September 27th, 2011 at 10:38 am said:

sigh I hope your working on a another game too.

Sorry Jenova, but Spring 2012 is not a firm date.

+ Boxster17 on September 27th, 2011 at 12:21 pm said:

Really enjoyed the beta when playing it so was hoping it would come out a bit sooner. You know what they say….good things come to those who wait. Looking forward to this release next year!

+ iTofuMan on September 27th, 2011 at 12:23 pm said:

Great update. thanks for telling us that beta is going well. cant wait to play this game when its finally release! I wish more companies were like this instead of keeping every little thing left in the dark.

+ KGH on September 27th, 2011 at 12:32 pm said:

damn…thats a long time


42

+ Zoidzerg on September 27th, 2011 at 12:35 pm said:

Man, why do I only get invited to FPSer multi-player beta’s? Pouty face.

Seriously, looking forward to it. I need my variety in gaming and these guys have been pretty good at giving me something different from the rest.

+ Sir_LUEshi on September 27th, 2011 at 12:51 pm said:

The game looks great guys, it’s clear that a lot of heart and passion went into making this happen, I can’t wait to play it!


44

+ saab01 on September 27th, 2011 at 12:57 pm said:

Just a heads up this should be our free PSN game for the month for plus users. I am expecting it to be the free game so no surprises please.


45

+ gilgamesh21 on September 27th, 2011 at 1:13 pm said:

Spring 2012? Don’t you mean Christmas 2011? : )

It’s so gorgeous. More polish? This gem already shines! I’m really looking forward to it.


46

+ IAFROSAMURAI on September 27th, 2011 at 1:16 pm said:

*sigh* if they’re going to delay this long could they at least make the beta available to everyone? Like an open beta or something or even just a single player (only) demo


47

+ jayrockslife on September 27th, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

bummer its not coming out this year, hopefully the extra time allows for more polish and making the game great.

+ WelmoscaBR on September 27th, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

@EnigmaNemesis Agree 100% homie…this company would do an awesome game with vita.
