Introduction

Aside from explicit "interactive art," such as Plastic's Linger in Shadows, you won't find a more deliberate artistic experience on the PlayStation Network than Journey, a new downloadable title from thatgamecompany, developers of flOw and Flower.

It's easy to spoil this experience simply by reading a review. We'll do our best, but for fans of Flower we do recommend just downloading the game immediately. The experience is delightful at all times, groundbreaking throughout, and flies in the face of almost every gaming norm we can think of. Plus, it's a lot of fun.
