Playtest thatgamecompany’s Journey Next Week in L.A.

Kellee Santiago's Avatar Posted by President and co-founder of thatgamecompany

Since popping our heads out of the sand to announce Journey at E3 this year, we have been deep in the throes of development. But now I’m peeking up again to see if any of you might be interested in giving us feedback on the game here in Los Angeles!

Journey: Mountain

As you might already know, we have an extremely iterative development process, which means that although we are still building out the game, we like to get feedback from players early so we can incorporate it into the final version. This is a great opportunity to see the game as it progresses, and get a look behind the curtain of game development. Also, we’d love to have folks from this community help us! Here’s the info:

Evening of November 19th, 2010

Requirements to participate are:

  • Be between the ages of 18 and 35.
  • Be an active PSN game player. We want people who are familiar with PSN games, visit the Store, and download games as a part of their PlayStation life.
  • Live in Los Angeles, and have reliable transportation to the playtest in Santa Monica.

Journey: Bridges

In case you missed our E3 announcement, Journey is our latest game we’re working on with SCEA’s Santa Monica Studio, following flOw and Flower for PS3. With Journey we are taking a departure from our previous two games, introducing a human-like playable character, and a narrative that is much more like an adventure. All the while we are aiming to keep the emotion and beauty that our previous projects have become known for.

If you are interested and qualified, please send an email with your name, age, address, PSN ID, and contact number to journeyplaytest@gmail.com. If you are selected, you will receive an email with confirmation and the specific details.

Hey the title needs to be fixed. It says “Playtest thegamecompany” instead of “thatgamecompany.”

Too bad you guys don’t have a studio up here in Vancouver where I could have tested it.

I know pretty much NOTHING about this game other than it’s 100% guaranteed that I’m going to buy it the day its released. The game looks absolutely gorgeous and I know thatgamecompany will put out a top quality game.

I’m rather curious what kind of narrative you’ll have and how much of it will still be a personal and unique experience for the gamer. It will be interesting to see how it turns out…

The game is looking fantastic. FlOw and Flower are great so I can imagine this game will be as well. :) I live in the Bay Area so I won’t be able to make the test unfortunately.

SykoTech said:

November 12th, 2:42 pm

Here’s hoping that we finally get to see some gameplay of this. The screens are drool worthy, but they can only keep me hyped for so long.

mii-id said:

If only I could help playtest, but I live on the other side of the world. Would it not be awesome to have somebody from the other side help out.

SarshelYam said:

November 12th, 4:42 pm

Awwwww nuts. The single most anticipated title for the PS3 and I’d have to make a 5 hour drive. I’ll have to pass…hopefully that doesn’t mean I’m a sucky and uncommitted fan. :(

Rinaldus91 said:

November 12th, 5:06 pm

What if I live -close- to Los Angeles? Oh screw it, I’ll just shoot you an e-mail

Why does the west coast always get everything… I have gotten quite tired of it…

Sir_Vague said:

November 12th, 8:45 pm
